The buzz is building about PIDapalooza - the first open festival of scholarly research persistent identifiers, to be held at the Radisson Blu Saga Hotel, Reykjavik, Iceland, on November 9-10, 2016.

PIDapalooza will bring together creators and users of persistent identifiers (PIDs) from around the world to shape the future research information landscape. An emerging PID-enabled research information infrastructure is supporting proper attribution and credit, promoting collaboration and reuse, enabling reproducibility of findings, fostering faster and more efficient sharing and dissemination of scholarly works.

We believe that bringing together everyone who’s working with PIDs for two days of discussions, demos, workshops, brainstorming, and updates on the state of the art will catalyze the development of PID community tools and services.

You can help! Please send us your ideas for sessions you would find valuable, using this form by September 18. We will send session proposal notifications the first week of October when we announce the festival lineup.
