DataCite will hold its second Summer Meeting on August 24th and 25th at the historic Shattuck Plaza Hotel in Berkeley, California. The Summer Meeting — Data and the Scholarly Record: the Changing Landscape—will be a 1.5 day event hosted by the California Digital Library, and we invite you to participate.  You can register at: http://datacite2011.eventbrite.com/ .

The Summer Meeting brings together people from research organisations, data canters, government, and information service providers to hear about the latest developments in data science, data citation, discovery, and reuse. It also provides opportunities to exchange experience and influence the next generation of data citation services.

This year’s program will include sessions on data citation, data publishing, and discussions on the new challenges that come with increasing access to scientific data.

The 2010 DataCite summer meeting brought together a strong program of speakers and participants (http://www.datacite.org/datacite_summer_meeting_2010). 

Highlights were published in D-Lib (http://dx.doi.org/doi:10.1045/january2011-contents).

DataCite helps researchers find, access, and reuse data.  It is an international not-for-profit association founded in 2009 with members across the globe.
