The program will target the interests and needs of data managers and curators, librarians who work with research data, and researchers and data scientists. A wide range of disciplines from the life sciences, physical sciences, social sciences, and humanities will be represented. The summit will bring together practitioners and researchers from academic institutions, data centers, funding agencies, and industry.
Why attend RDAP14?
RDAP14 offers attendees the unique chance to interact with and learn from practitioners and researchers working in a variety of fields on research data management, access, and preservation issues.
