Wednesday, January 23 • 2:00pm - 2:25pm
PIDforum.org - a new global discussion platform about PIDs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Imagine a virtual meeting place for all PID aficionados, a place to discuss anything that has to do with PIDs, to announce events, to ask questions, to share ideas; a place to go when you just can't stop talking about PIDs and your colleague or your cat doesn't want to hear it anymore. Sound amazing? We think so too!

Imagine no more: we're excited to announce the launch of the PID Forum during PIDapalooza 2019. The PID Forum is open to everyone, although stemming from a Project FREYA discussion including partners such as DataCite, Crossref, and ORCID. We aim to make it THE global online discussion platform for all things PID-related in the research world. During this interactive session, we ask you, the community, for your involvement in starting up the PID Forum and making it a success. We will discuss what kind of topics and information you'd like to see on the forum, how to make the PID Forum as global and inclusive as possible, how to best engage the wider community and more.

Last but not least, if you sign up to the PID Forum during PIDapalooza you have a chance of winning a ticket for PIDapalooza 2020!
