Reporting from the CERN codesprint and first year conference

The ODIN first year conference and codesprint event held at CERN October 15-17 marked the end of a successful first year of the project.



The codesprint

The CERN codesprint was the first of several hands-on technical workshop scheduled in ODIN. The event took place Oct 15-16 and was attended by 20 experts, from both ODIN partners and from external organizations not directly involved in the project.

The group decided to focus their energies on four projects, chosen from a longer list of candidate projects (see figure). All projects are summarized on the codesprint page, including links to project code shared via Github.


The first year conference

The conference immediately followed the codesprint and lasted one full day, on 17th of October. The first part of the programme comprised an update from DataCite and ORCID and a summary of the first results from the project. The majority of the programme, however, was devoted to presentations from external speakers representing a diverse group of stakeholder organizations.

The full conference programme and links to all presenter slides is available on the event website.


Both conference and codesprint are covered in more detail in deliverable D2.3 First year communication report.
