PIDapalooza, the festival of persistent identifiers is coming soon!

This blog post by Laura Rueda has been cross-posted from the DataCite Blog.

Passionate as we are about persistent identifiers, we are delighted to invite you to PIDapalooza, the festival of PIDs this November in Reykjavik. Together with colleagues from Crossref and the California Digital Library, THOR partners DataCite and ORCID have envisioned this community gathering for everyone who’s working with identifiers: digital tech experts, publishers, researchers, tool builders, organisations, infrastructure providers… and you!


The program will include a mixture of PID demos, workshops, brainstorming, updates on the state of the art, and more – and we invite your contributions. Working together we can catalyze the development of innovative tools, services and community actions.

Come share your ideas with a crowd of like-minded innovators! Send your session proposal, in a very lightweight format, by September 18. The festival lineup will be announced the first week of October.

Registration is already open. Sponsorship offers are welcome, please contact  if you want to support the initiative.


Where: Radisson Blu Saga Hotel Reykjavik, Hagatorg, 107 Reykjavik, Iceland

When: 9th and 10th November 2016

See you in Reykjavik!
