Australia, in close partnership with Ireland, will host the Third Plenary for the Research Data Alliance in Dublin, Ireland on March 26 to 28, 2014. The purpose of the Research Data Alliance is to accelerate international data-driven innovation and discovery by facilitating research data sharing and exchange, use and re-use, standards harmonization, and discoverability.
The 3rd Plenary focuses on the theme ‘The Data Sharing Community: Playing YOUR Part’ and is about exploiting RDA’s work to date to its full potential. The program contains a mixture of keynotes, panels, networking, Working and Interest Groups as well as ‘Birds of a Feather’ sessions on topics ranging from agriculture to particle physics, and from humanities to bioinformatics. All parts of the data lifecycle are addressed, from foundational data terminology to data publication and re-use.
