North American DDI Conference April 2013
Registration is now open for NADDI 2013 (http://www.ipsr.ku.edu/naddi/). The North American Data Documentation Initiative Conference (NADDI) is an opportunity for those using DDI and those interested in learning more about it to come together and learn from each other. Patterned after the successful European DDI conference (EDDI), NADDI 2013 will be a two day conference with invited and contributed presentations. This conference should be of interest to both researchers and data professionals in the social sciences and other disciplines. Training sessions will follow the conference. One focus of the first year's conference will be on the use of DDI by individual research teams through the data lifecycle.
Please note that thanks to the generous support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, a limited number of reduced rate registrations for graduate students are available.
Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Jay Greenfield of Booz Allen Hamilton where he is the semantic architect for a DDI Lifecycle based metadata system that supports the National Children's Study (NCS).
The conference will be held in the Kansas Union at the University of Kansas on April 2 and 3 2013. An opening night reception will be held April 1, and workshops will be held on April 4.
The call for papers is also now open through January 31, 2013.
