DDI-CDI Webinar Series

CODATA is collaborating with the DDI Foundation on a series of webinars to support the public review of the DDI-Cross Domain Integration specification.

The goal is to provide background so that reviewers, especially those from outside the traditional DDI community, have enough information to give the new specification a considered review.

Currently, two “rounds” of webinars are proposed.  Some of these events are organised for the DDI community, others seek a wider audience and are convened in partnership with CODATA.  The numbering below is indicative and may change as the dates for each webinar are finalised.

Round One:

  1. CESSDA (DDI), Weds 27 May, 14:00 UTC [presentation and recording]
  2. General audience* (DDI and CODATA), Tue 16 Jun, 13:00 UTC and Thu 18 Jun, 07:00 UTC [presentations and recordings]
  3. DDI Community (DDI), Weds 24 June, 14:00 UTC [presentations and recordings]
