RDA's 19th Plenary: Call for Sessions now open!
The Call for Sessions for RDA's 19th Plenary is now open!
Plenary 19 is currently planned to take place as a hybrid event, as part of International Data Week 2022, taking place 20-23 June 2022.
As of 13 December 2021, the RDA is excited to plan for the hybrid plenary within IDW2022, with an in-person element. However, given the ongoing fluidity of the COVID-19 situation, and our commitment to this community's safety, we ask for your patience as the planning progresses, and your understanding should changes to the plenary format, programme or breakout timings be deemed necessary as a result of the ongoing pandemic.
When submitting your session application, we invite you to indicate your preference for a virtual only or a hybrid (in-person with online participation) session. Given the ongoing uncertainty, we currently have a fixed and limited number of in-person venue facilities. As a result, we may not be able to accomodate all submitted requests for a hybrid session. If you are affected by this, a member of the Secretariat will be in touch with you in week commencing 4 April.
Please note that given the limited number of in-person facilities, we may not be able to accomodate requests for sessions to change from virtual to hybrid and vice-versa after the initial schedule has been developed based on your preferences indicated in your submission.
Repeat sessions will be held virtually only.
How to submit your session application.
The Plenary will include all the main elements of our typical plenary event (breakout sessions, plenary sessions, poster event, networking events, etc.).
