The conference will take place on the afternoon of September 24, just after the RDA 4th Plenary concludes.

The Data Seal of Approval (DSA) is an initiative to provide basic certification to data repositories. Receiving the DSA signifies that data are being safeguarded in compliance with community standards and will remain accessible into the future. The DSA and its quality guidelines are relevant to researchers, organizations that archive data, and users of the data.

We have an interesting program planned for the conference. Topics will include:

  • A basic overview of the Data Seal of Approval, including how to apply for the DSA
  • DSA and the European Research Infrastructures
  • Case studies
  • The DSA-WDS Partnership Working Group and its goals

The full DSA conference program is available on the DSA Web site.

The registration fee for the DSA conference is 50 euro. Register for the DSA conference. Note that this is a separate registration from the RDA 4th Plenary and EventBrite will charge a fee (3,75 euro) for booking the ticket.

Accommodations and travel information can be found on the RDA 4th Plenary Web site.
