PIDapalooza, the festival of persistent identifiers is coming soon!

Passionate as we are about persistent identifiers, we are delighted to invite you to PIDapalooza, the festival of PIDs this November in Reykjavik. Together with our colleagues from Crossref, ORCID and the California Digital Library, we have envisioned this community gathering for everyone who’s working with identifiers: digital tech experts, publishers, researchers, tool builders, organisations, infrastructure providers… and you!


The program will include a mixture of PID demos, workshops, brainstorming, updates on the state of the art, and more – and we invite your contributions. Working together we can catalyze the development of innovative tools, services and community actions.

Come share your ideas with a crowd of like-minded innovators! Send us your session proposal, in a very lightweight format, by September 18. We will announce the festival lineup the first week of October.

Registration is already open. We are also welcoming sponsorship offers, please contact us at if you want to support our initiative.


Where: Radisson Blu Saga Hotel Reykjavik, Hagatorg, 107 Reykjavik, Iceland When: 9th and 10th November 2016

See you in Reykjavik!
