The Research Data Access & Preservation Association (RDAP) invites proposals for the program of its upcoming virtual summit, on March 10-12, 2021. The RDAP Summit occurs on March 10 and 11 as a single-track, affordable conference for research data support practitioners. This year’s program will be a virtual conference held over Zoom. Conference registration will be $30 USD. The program includes keynotes, presentations, and lightning talks. It ends on March 12 with optional workshops, some for a small additional registration fee, and networking spaces.

This year’s conference theme is “Radical Change and Data”. Take this opportunity to share how you are adapting to change or development in your work or at your institution. Do you envision ideas or movements that may shape the way you work with data in the future? Are there practical skills or knowledge you have learned through a rapid change that others may benefit from knowing? The planning committee encourages presenters to propose topics that address how data intersects with major forces for societal change including, but not limited to, public health, the environment, and movements for racial equity. 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.

The deadline to submit a proposal is Sunday, November 1, 2020. (The planning committee will send decisions on November 23, 2020, and the deadline to accept will be December 13, 2020.)
