Call for proposals

The deadline for program submissions has closed. The program committee is reviewing proposals and will notify presenters of decisions in early November. 

Theme 1: Putting Principles into Practice

Theme 2: PID Communities

Theme 3: PID Success Stories

FAIR, Plan S, the 4 Cs; principles are everywhere. Do you have examples of how PIDs helped you put principles into practice? We’d love to hear your story!

We believe PIDs don’t work without community around them. We would like to hear from you about best practice among PID communities so we can learn from each other and spread the word even further!

We already know PIDs are great, but which strategies worked? Share your victories! Which strategies failed? Let’s turn these into success stories together!

Theme 4: Achieving Persistence through Sustainability

Theme 5: Bridging Worlds - Social and Technical

Theme 6: PID Party!

Persistence is a key part of PIDs, but there can’t be persistence without sustainability. Do you want to share how you sustain your PIDs or how PIDs help you with sustainability?

What would make heterogeneous PID systems 'interoperate' optimally? Would standardized metadata and APIs across PID types solve many of the problems, and if so, how would that be achieved? And what about the social aspects? How do we bridge the gaps between different stakeholder groups and communities?

You don’t just learn about PIDs through powerpoints. What about games? Interpretive dance? Get creative and let us know what kind of activity you’d like to organize at PIDapalooza this year!

Your proposals will be reviewed by a broader group this year, representing not just the four organizers but the PID community at large:
