DataCite in the Open Repositories 2014 Conference

DataCite will be represented in the Open Repositories 2014 Conference, to be held June 09-13 in Helsinki, Finland in the context of the ODIN (ORCID and DataCite Interoperability Network) project.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet DataCite and ORCID technical staff in the Interoperability and services through shared identifiers developers challenge. There will be no fee to participate in the challenge and ODIN will provide a prize of an iPad to the “best” project, as determined by a vote of the participating developers.

DataCite will be also represented in the discussion panel "Promoting Interoperability and Services Through Shared Identifiers" to be held on Thursday June 12. Speakers from ORCID and DataCite will discuss implementation challenges for persistent identifier registries, including community engagement and support for development of third party services. They will be accompanied by Dryad and CERN speakers, who will focus on the challenges and opportunities for integrating shared persistent identifiers.

All these activities have been organized in the context of the ODIN Project, running from September 2012 to September 2014.
