Open Researcher Identifier Launch in Canberra

ORCID are launching their Australian effort for globally standardized open IDs for tracking researcher's publications, at a free event in Canberra on 15 February 2016. See also "Breaking the myths of scholarly credit".
ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. ORCID is unique in its ability to reach across disciplines, research sectors and national boundaries. It is a hub that connects researchers and research through the embedding of ORCID identifiers in key workflows, such as research profile maintenance, manuscript submissions, grant applications, and patent applications.
