Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System (iRODS) User Group Meeting - May 28-31 in Amsterdam, NL

The Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System (iRODS) is open source data management software used by research organizations and government agencies worldwide. iRODS is released as a production-level distribution aimed at deployment in mission critical environments. It virtualizes data storage resources, so users can take control of their data, regardless of where and on what device the data is stored. As data volumes grow and data services become more complex, iRODS is serving an increasingly important role in data management.

The 16th Annual iRODS User Group Meeting will be held from May 28-31, 2024 in Amsterdam, NL. The event is a great chance to meet iRODS users, Consortium members, and staff to discuss iRODS-enabled applications and discoveries, technologies powered by iRODS, and the future of iRODS and the iRODS Consortium. 

On Tuesday, May 28, the iRODS Consortium Development Team will provide Beginner and Advanced Training sessions. From May 29-30, the team will host several presentations from the user community and the core development team, including use case presentations, live demonstrations, and open discussions about requested iRODS features. On Friday, May 31, the iRODS Consortium will host an iRODS Troubleshooting session where participants can get some one-on-one help with an existing or planned iRODS installation or integration.

Early bird registration closes April 1. Those interested can register for the event here:
