ORCID has three events coming up in September and October, to provide the research community opportunities to learn more about integration of ORCID identifiers, and to participate in developing best practice recommendations.
19 September 2013. ORCID iDs in the Academic Publishing Workflow: Where are we now?
Join us for a Webinar on Thursday, September 19 at 11:00 EDT, co-hosted by ORCID and CrossRef. This webinar will include discussion and demonstrations of the integration of ORCID identifiers in publishing workflows, including manuscript submission, production and online publication, and XML deposit to CrossRef.
Participation is free, though advance registration is required. Register Now.
15-17 October 2013. ODIN First Year Conference and Codesprint.
The ORCID and DataCite Interoperability Network (ODIN) project, which we covered previously on our blog, will hold its first year conference and codesprint at CERN – the European Organization for Nuclear Research.
The 3-day event will open with a hands-on technical workshop. Participants from the ODIN partner organizations and external experts will collaborate on specific coding projects to demonstrate the potential of the identifier “awareness layer”. On October 17, ODIN will host a full-day conference where ODIN partners will present results from the first half of the two-year project and invite feedback from the community.
Registration for both ODIN events is now open. More event details, including a provisional programme and list of confirmed speakers is available on the ODIN website.
30 October 2013. Autumn ORCID Outreach Meeting.
ORCID will host its next Outreach meeting on Wednesday, October 30 in Washington, D.C. The meeting goal is the development of best practices for integration of ORCID identifiers into research workflows. Following morning updates from ORCID staff, we will host a keynote panel to discuss strategies and challenges for integrating ORCID identifiers. The keynote will segue into concurrent working sessions, for funders, publishers, and associations. Each working session will bring together people with technical and subject matter expertise and together we will map workflows, identify ORCID iD integration points, develop recommendations for best practices, and discuss strategies for addressing gaps in information flow.
Participation is free but you must register in advance and indicate your preferred afternoon working session. Those unable to attend in person may elect to participate in the morning sessions via webcast. Visit the event website for details and registration. We are currently seeking event sponsors.
