RDA's 14th Plenary - 23-25 October 2019 | Helsinki, Finland
- Full Programme with Co-Located Event Schedule Now Available Online!
- Call for Volunteers for Unconference
Planning is underway for the next RDA Unconference, scheduled to take place the afternoon of 24 October 2019, at Aalto University during P14. This will be RDA’s second meeting of this type, with its first taking place last April during Plenary 13 in Philadelphia. Due to the extremely positive feedback received then and the perspective that an Unconference meeting has a significant role in shaping the direction of RDA, we have decided to include it again in the P14 programme. For this time, however, we want to give you, our members, the opportunity to have a hands-on role in leading the event itself. If you are interested or have experience in conducting an Unconference, we want to hear from you. We are in need of facilitators, session leads, notetakers, content editors, etc. who can assist us in making this event an even bigger success than the P13 Unconference. If you will be attending P14 and available to assist us during the Unconference, please complete this form by 13 September 2019 and indicate the type of assistance you can provide to us. The RDA Programme Committee will then reach out to you to further discuss your role and plan for the event.
