RDA's 17th Plenary April 2021 - Call for Co-located Events
If you or your colleagues are interested in organizing a specific open science or research data related event in the near future, you may want to consider co-locating it before or after the RDA 17th Plenary meeting (P17) scheduled 20-22 April 2021 in Edinburgh, UK.
At previous RDA plenaries, numerous organizations have opted to hold their own meetings at or near our meeting venue, leveraging the size and enthusiasm of the international data community present at each of those locations. At VP17, we are anticipating another event that will be highly attended virtually by its highly motivated community. If your event will be focusing on showcasing your data-related work and/or synergizing with other data experts, co-locating with P17 will provide you an excellent opportunity to meet these objectives. Your meeting can run as a virtual, satellite event before or after the main plenary. Please note that co-located events should NOT be organised on the same dates as the plenary meeting (20 – 22 April 2021). The dates for co-located events are Monday, 19 April 2021 and Friday, 23 April 2021.
To co-locate with RDA for P17, simply submit your application before 12 February 2021. The Programme Committee will review all submissions and send out notifications of acceptance by 26 February 2021. Acceptance criteria will be based on the impact of the event as it relates to P17. Once the details of your event are confirmed, your event will be promoted alongside the P17 programme in all RDA communication channels.
Submit your application to co-locate with RDA for P17 by completing the form below.
When submitting your application, please indicate whether you will be using your own platform and accounts (ie Zoom), or if you would require to use the RDA VP17 virtual platform.
