DI4R 2017: Brussels, 30 November – 1 December


 
Europe's leading e-infrastructures invite all researchers, developers and service providers to participate in the second edition of Digital Infrastructures for Research conference, which will be held this year in Brussels, Belgium, at the SQUARE meeting centre, from 30 November to 1 December 2017.
 
The DI4R 2017 conference is jointly organised by EGI, EUDAT, GÉANT, OpenAIRE, PRACE and RDA Europe. The theme of the event is “Connecting the building blocks for Open Science”. DI4R 2017 will showcase the policies, processes, best practices, data and services that, leveraging today’s initiatives - national, regional, European and international -are the building blocks of the European Open Science Cloud and European Data Infrastructure.
 
The conference will demonstrate how open science, higher education and innovators can benefit from these building blocks, and will contribute to advance integration and cooperation between initiatives. The event's programme will be available at the beginning of September. Registration and a call for participation for lightning talks, posters and demonstrations will open at the same time. All participants to the DI4R are invited to a welcome evening cocktail on the 29 of November at SQUARE in Brussels, organised by the EOSCpilot project as part of their event.
 
Annabel Grant of GÉANT said, “The DI4R event is gaining real traction, with significant interest from the research community in how the e-infrastructures can jointly support their needs and work with them to improve open science and collaboration for all. GÉANT is proud to be one of the major organisers, with DI4R 2017 following on from a successful joint e-infrastructure booth at TNC17 earlier this year.”
