RDAP Happenings, April 2019: Summit Update, Membership, Executive Board Nominations, and Town Hall Date

RDAP Summit

We look forward to seeing everyone at RDAP Summit in Miami on May 15-17. This is our first Summit as an independent professional association AND RDAP’s 10th Summit! The program is published on RDAP website.

Thank you to the Conference Planning Committee for its efforts to be more inclusive this year. This includes an updated Code of Conduct, access to a lactation space during the conference, a ramp for stage access, a gender neutral bathroom, guidance to presenters on how to make presentations more accessible, and more! Please contact us with any questions or additional accommodation requests.

RDAP and JeSLIB will again partner for a special conference issue of the journal. Details of the call for submissions will go out soon. We also encourage those interested to register for the Summit’s Friday morning workshop on turning a presentation or poster into an article; the session will be lead by the RDAP’s Publishing Committee, many of whom are associated with JeSLIB.

RDAP Association Town Hall 3/22

RDAP Association Town Hall 3/22

RDAP Town Hall

Hello RDAP community!

We have been hearing through various communication channels that you want to know what’s going on with RDAP, beyond the emails we send. To bring another form of visibility to the work we are doing, we are going to host a town hall this Friday 3/22 at 2pm EST.

We plan to set up another town hall in the next couple of weeks for those who can’t make this Friday’s meeting (we know it is short notice, but we see this as a more informal way for the community to interact with the Board). Also an FYI, there will be a business meeting at RDAP 19 where the Board will present more formally on the progress we have made this year.

Best,

The RDAP Association Executive Board

Registration Open for 2019 Research Data Access and Preservation Summit

Registration for the regular program (May 15-16) and workshops (May 17) is now open. 

The 2019 Research Data Access and Preservation Summit will be at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL from May 15-17, 2019. The theme is Building Communities: how different communities are impacted by our systems, technology, values, and practices; who our communities are by and for; and data services examined through a critical lens.

Register for RDAP Summit 2019

For the first time, the RDAP Summit will be run by the RDAP Association, an independent professional organization formed last year by past RDAP Summit attendees to support the community of research data management professionals. We would like to ask you to become an official voting member of the RDAP Association. This year, we are not charging a membership fee. Instead, we are asking for a donation from you based on what you feel membership in the RDAP Association is worth.

See you in Miami!
