2016 Canberra Outreach Meeting

February 15-16, 2016

We were delighted that our first Australian Outreach Meeting, which coincided with the official launch of the Australian ORCID consortium, was hosted by consortium lead the Australian Access Foundation (AAF). The Outreach Meeting was preceded on February 15 by the first ORCID Town Hall meeting, and featured the official launch of the Australian ORCID Consortium, also at ANU Commons.

The theme of the Outreach Meeting was ORCID at Scale. We worked with a local Programme Committee to develop a programme that will cover ORCID adoption and implementation in a variety of formats: panel sessions, lightning talks, and topic tables, and there was ample opportunity for networking over the course of the two days.
