North American Data Documentation Initiative Conference (NADDI)
April 24-26, 2019
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 2019 will be a two day conference (April 25-26) 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. A full day of training sessions will precede the conference (April 24th).
The theme for NADDI 2019, Benefits of Describing Statistical Production and Variables, emphasizes the benefits of using metadata to drive efficiencies in a research data lifecycle, as well as promote subsequent re-use of end data products.
Aimed at individuals working in and around data and metadata, NADDI 2019 seeks submissions of presentations and posters that highlight the use of DDI and other metadata standards within research projects, official statistics, survey operations, academic libraries, and data archives.
