Hosted by the Digital Curation Centre.


Join this 90 minute session and find out just how much you know about the Research Data Alliance, and take part in a scavenger hunt from the comfort of your own home!

4th November, 17:30 - 19:00 UTC: Where in the World is ….

Hosted by the RDA-US Region and facilitated by Rebecca Koskela, RDA-US; Steven Diggs, UCSD; Chris Erdmann, AGU; Stephanie Hagstrom, RDA-US; Yolanda Meleco, RDA-US; Yuhan Rao, NCSU; Shawna Sadler, ORCID; Meghan Underwood, RDA-US.

---An interactive guessing game where we come along for a tour of the hometowns of our colleagues---

Come join in the fun and be a part of showing your colleagues your hometown through a short presentation or just come along for a tour.  All P18 Registrants are welcome to attend. This will be an interactive, fun way to take us on a journey away from our work location to see where our colleagues live. The presenters are asked not to tell the crowd the location, but instead will present pictures or videos and will provide hints to help the audience guess the location. Whether you present at this session or just attend to be a part of the tour, we welcome all to be a part of exploring and guessing "Where in the World is your colleague.".

Call for Submissions Take us on a tour with a 3–5-minute presentation.  Learn more and sign up here: https://www.rd-alliance.org/presenter-guidelines-nov4-networking-event

9th November, 10:00 - 11:30 UTC: Recipes without borders

Hosted by RDA France and facilitated by Francoise Genova

This social session is organised by RDA France. A stereotype about French people is that they like to talk about food. It is true, but we are not alone! The participants will be invited to share a story about food, eventually with a relevant recipe in their own language (and a rough translation to English if they wish), a picture, etc.


11th November, 01:00 - 02:00 UTC: Join us at the beach like it's 2019! (no sunscreen needed, cool sunglasses optional)

Facilitated by Andrew Treloar, Stefanie Kethers
Meet and mingle with RDA participants in an informal virtual setting. Share your thoughts about the Plenary or discuss topics that have been raised, or just have a chat. BYO drink if you like!
