2016 ORCID South Africa Workshop

ORCID and the National Research Foundation of South Africa are delighted to announce that we will be holding our 2016 ORCID workshop in South Africa on Tuesday July 19. The theme of the meeting is "ORCID and the Research Lifecycle", with talks from the National Research Foundation, ORCID members and representatives, as well as platform providers. The event will cover ORCID APIs, research information interoperability, and ORCID at scale, and will also include panel conversations on ORCID in research workflows and platform integrations. There will be ample opportunity for networking and Q&A, including a closing reception.  

This workshop is part of ORCID's growing global outreach program, made possible as a result of a grant from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust. We look forward to seeing you in Pretoria!

Due to popular demand we have reached capacity for in-person attendance at the workshop. We are pleased to announce that you can now join the event remotely via live streaming. Please register below to receive the access details:
