The Research Data Access and Preservation Summit 2017 will be in Seattle, WA. The two-day conference will be held at the Seattle Renaissance on April 19-20, 2017. Plans for a workshop on the 21st are currently in development. 

RDAP is relevant to the interests and needs of data managers and curators, librarians who work with research data, and researchers and data scientists. A wide range of disciplines from the life sciences, physical sciences, social sciences, and humanities will be represented. The Summit aims to bring together practitioners and researchers from a diverse range of academic institutions, data centers, funding agencies, and industry.

More details will be forthcoming at Expect a call for proposals in the late fall!
