RDAP Summit

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!

RDAP Happenings, March 2019

Hello RDAP Community,

It’s been a busy year for RDAP as we work to transition from just an annual Summit to an independent association. One thing that the RDAP Board would like to improve upon is communication with its community. To this end, we will be sending out short newsletters regularly to better update you all on what the Board and committees are working on.

Conference

The RDAP Summit is scheduled for May 15-16, 2019 in Miami, FL, with a workshop day on Friday, May 17. The program has been finalized and is available. Registration is $209 and is NOW LIVE! Thanks to the conference chairs and committee for all their hard work on putting together this exciting program.

RDAP’s sponsorship committee has raised $25k to help support the conference and keep the registration cost low. We have received sponsorship from several vendors and professional organizations, but we could use a few more sponsorship dollars from academic institutions; please see the email from Trisha Adamus on 2019-02-26 for more information. And thank you to the Sponsorship committee for their hard work!
