it seems like P20 was just yesterday, but it is already time to plan & prepare for P21, with the deadline for session proposals coming up fast! (P21 is part of International Data Week 2023: A Festival of Data, taking place on 23–26 October 2023, in Salzburg, Austria; read more at https://www.rd-alliance.org/plenaries/international-data-week-2023-salzburg and https://codata.org/events/conferences/international-data-week-2023/)
At the group's monthly call on May 25, we discussed what the overall theme should be, and agreed to focus on the "fabric" of concepts, components and services that are required to support successful and efficient implementations of FDOs in practice.
Please take a look at the draft P21 session proposal document at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Y9Oij4zORPYotWSsOSdk9vwgOdHLXoDjkJsl2GnKByo/edit?usp=sharing and add your comments and suggestions by close of business on June 2. Suggestions (and volunteers!) for lightning talks on services and tools are especially welcome!
The co-chairs will then finalise the proposal and submit it around June 5.
