RDA 7th Plenary and Side Events

RDA Plenary 7

The Research Data Alliance (RDA) will hold its next Plenary Meeting for the first time in Asia! The 7th edition will take place 1–3 March 2016 in Tokyo, Japan, where the ICSU World Data System International Programme Office is hosted by the Japanese National Institute of Information and Communications Technology. Beyond this geographical proximity, WDS is strongly involved in RDA activities and will organize and contribute to several key events.

The 7th Plenary is built around the RDA Working and Interest group meetings, and will also see the release of a new set of group outputs with sessions dedicated to adoption and success stories.

It will be preceded by the Open Symposium: Data-driven Science—The trigger of Scientific development organised by JST and taking place on 29 February 2016. This side event will include a presentation by Dr Yasuhiro Murayama titled Open Science works with ICSU World Data System, International Enterprise of Long Term Data Preservation. 

During the RDA Plenary meeting, the joint WDS-RDA Working Groups in the field of Publishing Data Workflows, Bibliometrics, and Data-Literature Interlinking Services, as well as the Cost Recovery for Data Centres Interest Group will present their final outputs. 

On behalf of the WDS-RDA Publishing Data Interest Group, the WDS International Programme Office, in cooperation with the International Association of STM Publishers and the US National Information Standards Organization (NISO), will organize a side event entitled Publishing Data: Adoption and Implementation immediately following the Open Symposium on 29 February.

WDS is also involved in the organization of the side event titled Data Perspective beyond Alliances on 3 March. Of particular interest is the first session which will highlight two projects under the umbrella of the OECD Global Science Forum (OECD-GSF) dealing with International Coordination and Business Models for Data Infrastructure. WDS and CODATA are playing a key role and supporting these two initiatives.
