RDA's 12th Plenary - Call for Sessions Now Open!
- Published on Tuesday, 15 May 2018 20:00
RDA is accepting session proposal submissions for RDA’s 12th Plenary Meeting (P12). P12 is part of International Data Week (IDW18), which will be held on November 5-8, 2018 in Gaborone, Botswana.
RDA encourages members to submit session proposals between now and June 29, 2018 (17:00 UTC) for the following categories:
- Working and/or Interest Group sessions – These sessions provide existing RDA groups the opportunity for discussion, sharing experiences and best practices, and laying down concrete action plans; although members are free to design the meeting format, a working meeting structure is strongly encouraged.
Submit a Working and/or Interest Group session proposal at https://www.rd-alliance.org/
- Joint meetings – These are meetings that combine multiple Working and/or Interest Groups to explore potential synergies, share findings and coordinate efforts.

- Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions – If there is something you wish to see discussed but is not currently covered in a Working or Interest Group, you are encouraged to submit an application for a BoF session. Aimed at exploring new future Working or Interest Group topics, BoFs can help you identify an audience, build support and start the work on your Case Statement or Charter.
Submit a BoF session proposal at https://www.rd-alliance.org/
To submit a session in any of the above categories, individuals must be a member of RDA. For information on how to become a member, please visit https://www.rd-alliance.
Notification of session acceptances will occur on August 7, 2018.
Please note, a high number of session submissions are expected and there will be a limited number of meeting slots for this meeting. As a result, submissions will undergo a strict review process and there is the possibility that some submissions will not be accepted.
