Persistent Identifiers: Enabling Services for Data Intensive Research

Immediately before the start of the Research Data Alliance 6th Plenary session, on the 21st September, DataCite and EPIC are organising a half-day event to discuss how Persistent Identifiers can meet the challenges presented by data intensive research.


The event will be divided in two sessions: the first one on PIDs for interoperability and services, where we will discuss how to design and deliver the best technologies; and the second one about data intensive research, where different disciplinary use-cases and overarching initiatives will present their experience and results.

In this event, Sünje Dallmeier-Tiessen (CERN) will talk about THOR’s vision and plans for the next two years. Martin Fenner (DataCite) and Laura Paglione (ORCID) will also present their approach to persistent identification of datasets and authors. The registration and the agenda are already available:

Venue: 21st September 2015, 13:00-18:00 CEST in the Amphithéâtre Hermite, at the Institut Henri Poincaré (11 rue Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris).
