NADDI 2020

{ Making Data FAIR by using Metadata Standards }

Location: Virtual Conference Webinar Series

Conference: June 15 to 19, 2020


The North American Data Documentation Initiative Conference (NADDI) is an opportunity for those using metadata standards and those interested in learning more to come together and learn from each other. Modeled on the successful European DDI Conference, NADDI 2020 will be a virtual webinar conference (June 15-19) with invited and contributed presentations, and should be of interest to both researchers and data professionals in the official statistics, social sciences and other disciplines.

Conference Theme: Making Data FAIR by using Metadata Standards.


Data Documentation Initiative (DDI)

The Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) is an open metadata standard for describing data and specifying data collection activities. DDI's principle goal is making research metadata machine-actionable. The specification can document and manage different stages of data lifecycles, such as conceptualization, collection, processing, analysis, distribution, discovery, repurposing, and archiving.

Registration coming soon.

NADDI is about sharing stories and discoveries. Share your experiences.
