DataCite Annual Conference in Nancy, France, 25 - 26 August 2014

DataCite invites you to its 5th Annual Conference & Special Anniversary Celebration. This year’s theme, Giving Value to Data: Advocacy, Guidance, Services will highlight recent developments in the discovery, access and reuse of research data. The conference will celebrate the dramatic advances made in the way the research community works with data since minting the first DOI for data a decade ago. This is underscored by DataCite minting its 3,000,000th DOI (Digital Object Identifier) earlier this year.

The conference will take place in beautiful Nancy, France on 25-26 August, 2014, following the IFLA World Library and Information Congress in Lyon. It is hosted by the French Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (Inist-CNRS). For over 25 years, Inist-CNRS has been offering services to scientists, engineers and scholarly information professionals, by facilitating access to all fields of worldwide scientific research. Inist-CNRS is the French DataCite member.
