RDA is pleased to announce that the United States will be hosting its Fifth Plenary Meeting in San Diego, California from March 9 -11, 2015, at the beautiful Paradise Point Hotel.
For those unfamiliar with RDA, the Plenaries are multi-day meetings held twice a year in various locations worldwide to provide the RDA community an opportunity to network and collaborate with peers in various disciplines, and hear from industry experts and world leaders on topics related to research data sharing and exchange.
Celebrating its second year as an international organization, RDA will highlight the accomplishments of its membership. With the theme, “Adopt-a-Deliverable”, focus will be on the outputs from the initial set of RDA Working Groups, and on ensuring lasting impact in the research data sharing community through adoption by other organizations.
Who Should Attend?
The RDA Fifth Plenary is open to RDA members and the public. We especially welcome those individuals that share our core values of creating the building blocks of common data infrastructures that can bridge disciplinary activities under a community-driven and non-profit model.
Data experts, scientists, researchers and other professionals are encouraged to attend, as well as students and early career professionals in industries related to the fields of research data sharing and exchange. RDA works under the principles of openness, consensus, balance, and harmonization.
