In response to a number of requests in consideration of the little time after many peoples summer breaks, the Programme Committee of the CODATA-Helsinki Workshop on FAIR RDM in Institutions has agreed to extend the deadline for proposals for presentations and posters to Friday 13 September: https://conference.codata.org/Helsinki-CODATA-2019/submit/
Please note that the short time before the workshop means that there can be no further extension.
Proposals will be reviewed by the Programme Committee and authors will be informed as soon as possible after 24 September.
The Programme Committee is also delighted to announce that the Workshop Reception will take place in the ‘Empire Room’ of the Old Town Hall (Vanha Raatihuone in Finnish – also known as Bock’s House), Aleksanterinkatu 20 at 18:00-19:00 on Monday 21 October (see below).
CODATA-Helsinki Workshop on FAIR RDM in Institutions
Research Data and Research Institutions
Research data are an asset for research institutions. Their creation, management and stewardship imposes considerable responsibilities and requires partnership and alignment with other institutions and research initiatives globally. All over the world universities and libraries have started the task of developing research data services, many aspiring to cover the entire research lifecycle: support in writing proposals and data management plans, repository infrastructures for the storage of data, support in publishing data, assignment of persistent identifiers, lecturing in data management, etc. This broad scope means that such services are often seen as requiring a joint effort from university, library, IT centre, faculties and other stakeholders.
It is timely for actors in the various dimensions of such initiatives internationally to share their practical experiences, research and insights.

Please consult the call for presentations and posters for themes and guidelines for submissions: https://conference.codata.org/conference/Helsinki-CODATA-2019/call_for_presentations/

Workshop Reception, 18:00-19:00, Mon 21 October
The organisers are pleased to announce that thanks to the generosity of the City of Helsinki, there will be a closing reception for the Workshop at 18:00-19:00 on Monday 21 October, which will take place in the ‘Empire Room’ of the Old Town Hall (Vanha Raatihuone in Finnish – also known as Bock’s House), Aleksanterinkatu 20.
