Bridging Boundaries: Interoperability in the Data Community

[CLOSED FOR SUBMISSIONS] WORKSHOP: Propose a workshop that is 3 hours, including a short break. The workshop should be interactive, educational, and noncommercial. Education & Resources Committee members are available to help facilitate a virtual, hands-on workshop if needed.

[CLOSED FOR SUBMISSIONS] PRESENTATION: Propose a 15-minute talk that the RDAP Summit organizers will group with others around a similar theme. The talk should be on original research, a project, or present a perspective.

[CLOSED FOR SUBMISSIONS] LIGHTNING TALK: Propose a 5-minute lightning talk. The talk can be on any subject and can focus on a perspective, a work-in-progress, or a completed project. Lightning talks will be pre-recorded, with a live Q&A during the Summit.

[CLOSED FOR SUBMISSIONS] POSTER: Propose a poster that would be presented virtually. Poster presenters will have the opportunity to chat one-on-one with RDAP Summit attendees through the conference platform.

[CLOSED FOR SUBMISSIONS] DISCUSSION PANEL: Propose a moderated 3-4 person panel that will engage in a live conversation with each other and with the RDAP Summit attendees on a topic.

The committee will consider 1) the currency and relevance of the topic to the field, 2) appropriateness of the proposal for the session type, 3) impact of practices, conclusions, or recommendations (if applicable), 4) evidence of critical engagement & ethical research, 5) organization and clarity, 6) applicability to the conference theme. Workshop proposals will also be evaluated based on their learning outcomes. Lightning talks can be shorter and more informal and the committee will evaluate them with that in mind.

The full rubric used to evaluate proposals is available on the RDAP website.

We welcome proposals from both first-time RDAP presenters and those who provide a follow up on a project previously presented at a RDAP Summit. We request that submitters limit themselves to one proposal per format type.

We also welcome submissions from employees of sponsors and will evaluate them using the same methods as other submissions. However, submissions will not be considered if they focus only on demonstrating or selling a sponsor’s specific product.  

Submissions require the contact information of all presenters, the proposal type, the title, summary (max 300 words), and a brief statement about what informed your involvement in this topic. Workshop proposals will require learning outcomes. Panel proposals will require three example questions that may be discussed.

Note: You may leave the application and return to it before submitting, and make changes after submission until the close date.
