The International Science Council’s Committee on Data (CODATA) and World Data System (WDS), and the Research Data Alliance (RDA) are delighted to announce that the 2021 edition of International Data Week (IDW 2021) will be held on 8–11 November 2021 in Seoul, South Korea.

RDA together with CODATA, GO-FAIR, and WDS (four major international data organisations), are pleased to outline their joint commitment to work together to optimise the global research data ecosystem and to identify the opportunities and needs that will trigger federated infrastructures to service the new reality of data-driven science. 

As part of the virtual plenary, we are holding a virtual poster session, offering poster authors the opportunity to showcase their work at a Virtual Poster Session. During 30th March - 9 April, please visit the poster pages, add your comments, engage with the presenters and vote for the top 5 posters

The co-chairs of the W3C Dataset Exchange Working Group, Pedro Winstley and Caroline Burle, would like to bring the attention of RDA members to their working group in order to identify potential synergies between their work and the work of the RDA community.

The mission of the Dataset Exchange Working Group is to:

As an international, consensus-driven, community based organisation, the Research Data Alliance (RDA) has been asked to leverage on the global RDA data community to support the urgent Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

As a response, RDA has set up a fast track Working Group titled the “RDA COVID-19 Working Group”.

Over the past week, the RDA Technical Advisory Board and RDA Secretariat have been hard at work to create a virtual RDA plenary experience, (VP 15) that aims to bring exciting, educational and informational sessions to RDA members worldwide.

The new slate of candidates must be approved by the RDA membership. Between 19 March 2020 (00:01 UTC) and ends 2 April (23:59 UTC) all members will be asked to either accept or reject the appointment of this slate of candidates.

From 18th March to 10th April 2020 we will be running a virtual Plenary meeting, offering session convenors and all members the opportunity to organise and participate in virtual breakout sessions.

Dear Plenary 15 delegates and RDA members,

It is with a very heavy heart and great sadness that I inform you, on behalf of the organisers,  that we are cancelling the 15th RDA Plenary Meeting, scheduled to take place from 18-20 March 2020 in Melbourne Australia
