The Research Data Alliance (RDA) is set to hold its Fourth Plenary Meeting in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on 22-24 September. The event will showcase the first concrete outputs from several of the organization's working groups. Find out more about the organization in our recent interview with Hilary Hanahoe, the future coordinator of RDA Europe. In addition, read about the exciting progress being made by the RDA's working group on data foundation and terminology in our interview with Gary Berg-Cross, who is a member of the US advisory committee for RDA.

A number of exciting colocated events will also take place alongside the RDA Fourth Plenary, including The EGI Conference on Solutions and Challenges for Big Data Processing, Crowd Computing 2014, The Third EUDAT Conference, and many more. Find out more about The Third EUDAT Conference, which will be held on 24-25 September, in our recent interview with Per Oster, who is director of research infrastructures at Finland's IT Center for Science (CSC), the organization coordinating the EUDAT project. Finally, the newly launched European Ontology Network (EUON) will be holding its first workshop as part of the EUDAT event. iSGTW recently spoke to two of the network's co-chairs and founders, James Malone and Yann Le Franc.
