RDA 8th Plenary Sessions - Now open!

RDA welcomes submissions for session proposals for its 8th Plenary meeting to be held in Denver, Colorado from 15th - 17th September 2016, as part of the International Data Week (IDW)

The breakout meetings of Working Groups, Interest Groups, and ‘Birds of a Feather’, play an important role in the success of our plenaries as the meeting programme is build around them. 

We encourage all submissions, the breakout sessions are designed to provide an opportunity for discussion, sharing experiences and best practices, laying down concrete action plans. All Working and Interest groups are free to choose the format and workplan for their sessions while we strongly encourage the organisation of working meetings. Groups are also invited to submit joint meeting applications to explore potential synergies with other groups.

Is there a topic that you think RDA should address? Make sure you submit an application for a Birds of a Feather session aimed at exploring new potential working or interest group topics.  It will help you identify an audience, build support and start the work on your Case statement or Charter for an RDA Working or Interest group.

Please use the indicated forms to submit your applications, these will guide you through the submission process. Please consult the examples available for further details: 

Accepted sessions are built into the programme for the 8th Plenary Meeting.
