The world's first and finest 24-hour PID party  

Get ready, all you 24-hour party people!

PIDapalooza is going online in 2021! #PIDapalooza21 will be a 24-hour nonstop PID party happening around the world, beginning January 27 at 14:30 UTC (see the time in your location here). 


We wish we could all be together in person for the fifth (!) festival of persistent identifiers, but we’re excited to bring the world’s largest—and longest—virtual PID party directly to your desk, your couch, your balcony—really, anywhere there’s a strong WiFi signal. PIDapalooza has never been a regular conference and this one will be no different!
