RDA Virtual Plenary Banner

With the recent cancellation of Plenary 15 in Melbourne, Australia, the local organising committee, RDA Technical Advisory Board and RDA Secretariat are pleased to announce RDA Virtual Plenary 15 (VP 15), taking place 18 March – 10 April 2020. VP 15 will offer remote access to many of the sessions that were planned to take place in Melbourne.

The programme for VP 15 is below, and we anticipate many more sessions to be added in the coming days. If you are a member of an RDA group who had a session planned for Plenary 15 in Melbourne, and would like to participate in VP 15, please submit your request by Friday, 3 April at https://www.rd-alliance.org/virtual-plenary-15-session-request-form. Within 24-48 hours of your submission, the RDA Secretariat will send confirmations to the applicant chair of the time and session for the virtual meeting. 

Please consider registering for a session and/or hosting your own. Thank you in advance for your involvement and support, and a special thanks to AARNet for supporting VP 15 by providing Zoom links for our meetings.

If you are new to RDA, we have an introductory RDA for Newcomers document.

As part of the virtual #RDAPlenary (VP15), we are holding a virtual poster session from 30th March - 9 April. Please visit the poster pages, add your comments, engage with the presenters and vote for your top 5 posters!
