Follow the Now and Future of Data Publishing, Dryad and ORCID Meetings Online!

Also posted on the Now and Future of Data Publishing symposium blog.

We have been overwhelmed by the interest in the Now and Future of Data Publishing and the venue is full! The same applies (nearly) for the ORCID Outreach meeting and the Joint ORCID – Dryad Symposium on Research Attribution.

However, there are still some places for the Dryad ‘Open’ Meeting (membership and more) on Friday 24 May. This meeting is open to Dryad members, prospective members and other interested parties and provides a wonderful opportunity to learn about recent developments, get a preview of upcoming features, have a say in the governance of the organization, exchange ideas and experience with other members and Dryad staff, and help chart the future of data archiving. For a place at the event, register here.

So in response to the demand, it will be possible to follow all four events (over three days) online!  Click on the links below.  The NFDP13 meeting is using Webex, provided by Dryad through Duke University.  Instructions are at the foot of this post.
