ORCID is starting its 2017 US roadshow series in Chicago in April, followed by a series of European workshops in May. These events bring together the cross-sector ORCID community and provide an opportunity to share stories, technology and outreach approaches, and meet directly with ORCID staff. Registration is always free – and we provide lunch. More details and registration information for the workshops are available on our events page, where you also can check on events we are planning later in the year.
The first stop of our US roadshow will be on April 27 at the Big Ten Conference Center in Rosemont, IL, conveniently located near Chicago O’Hare International Airport. The event’s theme is “ORCID for Researchers and Organizations – Why, What, How?” In addition to presentations from ORCID staff, members, and ambassadors, representatives from ORCID’s community and technical teams will be holding open office hours. Stay tuned for information about our Texas and Atlanta events later in the year.
On May 16 we are hosting a workshop at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. The workshop coincides with our Board meeting, and we are delighted that several ORCID directors and Board members will be presenting, along with representatives from ORCID member organizations Stockholm University, Peerwith and PLOS. The workshop will include a consortium panel discussion featuring representatives from Sweden, Denmark, and Finland.
On May 22, we are hosting a workshop at the Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic. The program will focus on why uniqueness matters in research and will include speakers from Tomas Bata University, EuroCRIS, and Project THOR.
