Join the EUDAT conference 2018
After the success of the previous EUDAT conference in Amsterdam which brought together more than 300 participants, we are ready to kick-off 2018 with the EUDAT conference "Putting the EOSC vision into practice". The conference takes place in the stunning location of Porto, Portugal from the 23rd to the 25th of January 2018.

Why join?
The conference will:

  • Discuss the progress of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and the European Data Infrastructure (EDI) and the contribution of EUDAT as well as other infrastructures to these two initiatives;
  • Showcase the latest trends in data infrastructure and data management solutions for research;
  • Demo the solutions developed by EUDAT to address researchers and research communities’ data management needs, through concrete pilots;
  • Inform about the concrete opportunities offered by the newly established EUDAT Collaborative Data Infrastructure (CDI) to the service providers and research communities.

Additionally, it will give you the opportunity to showcase your work to an audience of community decision-makers and data managers, scientists and research communities, policy-makers, e-Infrastructure projects, research infrastructures and ESFRI projects during a poster & demo session (Submissions open until 30 November 2017).

Finally, it will host a set of co-located workshops covering different topics and disciplines to complement the main programme. The co-located workshops will be announced soon!

Curious about the programme? A sneak preview is available here. More information will be available in the upcoming weeks.
