Dear Open Science colleagues,

ODIN (ORCID and DataCite Interoperability Network) is a two-year EU-funded project that aims to increase the interoperability of trusted researcher and data identifiers and demonstrate the wonders that can be built upon such open services [1].  

We would like to invite interested members of the OKFN community to ODIN's first year conference and codesprint, to be held 15-17 October at CERN in Geneva.  In particular, the first two-days are solely given over to a codesprint (Oct 15-16) during which participants will collaborate on projects to demonstrate and take advantage of interoperable researcher and data identifiers, along with developers from ORCID & DataCite.

The third day (Oct 17) is a general conference open to all.  ODIN partners will share the results from the first half of the 2-year project and receive feedback from the community. 

The full program, codesprint ideas, and registration details, are at [2].  Participants are asked to cover their own travel and accommodation expenses.   Whether or not you can attend, you are invited to contribute to the codesprint ideas.  

First-time visitors to CERN might find a particular part of the program very interesting – a guided tour of the Large Hadron Collider [3].   And you can see where the WWW was born [4]

We hope to see you in Geneva in October!  In the meantime, please let us know if you have any questions.

The organizers (Amir Aryani, Martin Fenner, John Kaye, Neli Zhivkova Ivanova, Gudmundur Thorisson, Laura Rueda Garcia, Laure Haak, Sunje Dallmeier-Tiessen, Todd Vision)
