A unique and collaboratively-organized workshop is being offered on September 11, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. (EST) in Washington D.C. especially for data and information professionals, information technologists, and for disciplinary scientists interested in effective data sharing. The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) brought this news to our attention in their article, “Implementing FAIR Data for People and Machines: Impacts and Implications.”

The one-day event focuses on the implementations, ultimate impacts, and implications, especially as data is made with the “FAIR” (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) approach.

The focus will be on the implementations and ultimate impacts and implications. The Workshop will provide a venue for attendees to collaborate with their peers and hear from leading experts.

The keynote speaker is Barend Mons, President and Professor of Bioinformatics, Leiden University Medical Center, The Netherlands CODATA (a Commission of the International Science Council. In January 2019 he organized a meeting of Implementation Networks for FAIR data and services in Leiden where over 20 projects were represented.
