RDAP Happenings, May 2019
We’re in full countdown to the RDAP Summit on May 15-17 in Miami, FL. If you have not registered yet, there is still time to do so! We look forward to seeing everyone in Miami!
RDAP and JeSLIB will continue their partnership with a special issue for the 2019 Summit focusing on the Summit’s themes, “Building Communities.” The issue will have an open submissions call, and we encourage all presenters (talk, poster, presentation) — especially first-time presenters — to submit. We also encourage first-time authors to enroll in the Summit workshop, “Turning Your Poster or Presentation into a Paper.” Submissions will be due June 30, 2019.
Check out the blog posts from each sponsoring institution to learn more about why sponsorship matters and what these folks are looking forward to at this year’s summit!
