Data Repositories Day 2018 (inc. WDS Members' Forum)

'Data Repositories Day 2018' will be hosted by the World Data System on Friday, 09 November 2018 in Gaborone, Botswana; following the close of International Data Week 2018 (05–08 November). This event is open to anyone with an interest, and those from outside of the WDS family will be very much welcomed. Since this meeting incorporates the biennial WDS business meeting (the Members' Forum), Representatives of WDS Member Organizations—in particular, those of WDS Regular and Network Members—are expected to participate.

The Agenda for the Day has yet to be fixed; however, it is likely to consist of two parts:

  1. A Scientific Session, which will be opportunity to report on WDS-related activities of interest and importance to the data repository community, include the activities of WDS Regular and Network Members presented orally/via posters.
  2. A Plenary Session, which will provide a formal mechanism for community consultation, and where issues that are currently highly relevant to data repositories can be discussed.
