CFP: RDAP 2020

The Research Data Access & Preservation Association (RDAP) has released a CFP for their 2020 summit, to be held March 11th through 13th in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The theme for RDAP 2020 is “Connecting Through Data”: “We encourage attendees to consider how different communities are impacted by our systems, technology, values, and practices, who our communities are by and for, and to look at data services through a critical lens.”

Suggested proposal topics include:

  • Connections between higher education, the broader public, industry, government and other research data stakeholders.
  • Connections between groups within an organization or institution.
  • How connections have improved lives, especially when data was used for advocacy or change.
  • How these connections have changed the careers of data professionals.
  • How these connections have changed a field and/or industry.

Proposals are due November 1, 2019.
