We invite you to join us for an upcoming free and informative event showcasing the work of the ORCID and DataCite Interoperability Network (ODIN) Project. The project began in 2012, and is holding its final event in Amsterdam on September 24th. It’s collocated with the 4th RDA plenary at the De Meervaart Conference Centre. The detailed programme and registration information for this event are available on the ODIN project site.
ODIN has been tackling some of the issues around data citation, tracking re-use of datasets and linking creators and contributors to their data at every stage of the research lifecycle Using Persistent Identifiers (PIDS) from ORCID and DataCite. We are all really looking forward to sharing our work on integrating PIDs into real-life research systems. Project teams from ORCID, DataCite, the British Library, CERN, arXiv, the Australian National Data Service and Dryad Digital Repository will show what they have been doing, from electronic theses and dissertations to large-scale open access platforms, to datacentres across disciplines.
ORCID Executive Director Laure Haak will be chairing the event, and we are delighted to announce our keynote speakers. Dr Merce Crosas, Director of Data Science at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science at Harvard University, will join us to discuss the current challenges and opportunities for sharing data, and Dr Simon Hodson, the Executive Director of CODATA, will give his perspective on the ODIN project’s findings and the practical and policy implications of using a generic PID infrastructure to support data sharing and citation.
If you would like to learn even more about integrating PIDs into your workflows and systems, then you should save the date also for the upcoming ORCID Outreach Meeting in Tokyo, on November 4.
Join us to learn more about how ODIN has improved the process of research, from discovering and analysing datasets to publishing and citing them. In addition to panel discussions, we will be hosting a dedicated technical session exploring the interoperability solutions that have emerged from the project.
