We are inviting interested individuals to the second workshop for our NSF-funded project titled “FAIR Facilities and Instruments: Enabling transparency, reproducibility, and equity through persistent identifiers”. The workshop will take place in Tallahassee, FL at the High Field Magnetic Laboratory at Florida State University, August 20-22, 2024.

The goal of the workshop will be to explore pathways to implementing persistent identifiers (PIDs) for research facilities and instrumentation based on next steps identified at our first workshop in Boulder, CO in 2023 (full report here: https://doi.org/10.5065/zgsx-2d06 ). Questions we hope to dig into at this second workshop include:

How can various stakeholders work together to encourage assignment and citation of PIDs for research instrumentation?
How can we ensure various PID systems for research instrumentation evolve in a way that enables interoperability, including with regard to associated metadata?
How do we best define and communicate the value of PIDs for research instrumentation to various constituencies?

We have a preliminary high-level agenda with a few confirmed speakers.

We are able to offer reimbursement for travel for eligible workshop participants.
