Joint session of IG Geospatial & IG Big Data Analytics

Research Data Alliance is pleased to announce that the United States will be hosting its Fifth Plenary Meeting in San Diego, California from March 9 -11, 2015. For those unfamiliar with RDA, the Plenaries are multi-day meetings held twice a year in various locations worldwide to provide the RDA community an opportunity to network and collaborate with peers in various disciplines, and hear from industry experts and world leaders on topics related to research data sharing and exchange.

Celebrating its second year as an international organization, RDA will highlight the accomplishments of its membership. With the theme, “Adopt-a-Deliverable”, focus will be on the outputs from the initial set of RDA Working Groups, and on ensuring lasting impact in the research data sharing community through adoption by other organizations.
