The Research Data Access and Preservation Association  (RDAP) invites proposals for the program of its upcoming summit at the Sante Fe Convention Center in Sante Fe, NM, on March 11-13, 2020.

The RDAP Summit occurs  on March 11 and 12 as a single-track, affordable conference for research data support practitioners. The program includes presentations, lightning talks, a poster session, and discussion panels. It ends on March 13 with optional workshops, some for a small additional fee. 

This year’s theme is Connecting Through Data. The planning committee encourages presenters to propose topics that address how data has helped create connections between different groups or how these connections have brought about change in some way.

RDAP and the Journal of eScience Librarianship (JeSLIB) are continuing their partnership, and RDAP presenters will have the opportunity to submit papers to be considered for a special issue of JeSLIB.

Proposal Deadline: November 1, 2019 (Decisions will be sent on Nov. 22, 2019, and the deadline to accept will be Dec. 6, 2019.)
