2017 South Africa Workshop

We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting an ORCID workshop at the Kopanong Hotel & Conference Centre located just outside Johannesburg, South Africa on Tuesday 24 October. There will be ample opportunity for networking and Q&A.

The workshop is tailored for administrators/managers/librarians and developers of research institutions, funders, publishers and associations. As space is limited and we reached capacity last year, we recommend that you register as soon as possible.

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.

Registration is now closed.
