15th Research Data Alliance Plenary Meeting

The Research Data Alliance (RDA) is delighted to announce that its 15th Plenary Meeting will take place from 18 - 20 March 2020 in Melbourne, Australia, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, MCEC. The event will be hosted by CSIRO with the support of the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC). Organising the Plenary meeting in Australia offers regional researchers and data professionals an opportunity to engage and work with the RDA community, as well as offering the international data community the unique chance to learn more about the exciting activities and developments in the Australian data landscape.

The RDA Plenary meeting will be organised in conjunction with the annual C3DIS (Collaborative Conference on Computational and Data Intensive Science), taking place in Melbourne on 16 - 18 March 2020. C3DIS aims to build a national community of practice of scientists, researchers, and computing, data and information management specialists. All of these professionals share a common interest: the production of breakthrough science outcomes that require large scale, complex computations and analyses to be carried out over massive data sets.

Mark the dates in your calendar and check the RDA website for updates.
