*Owing to a number of requests, abstract submission
<https://sites.google.com/icsu-wds.org/lac-workshop-2020#h.p_yu3zgjSyM1WH> for
the Workshop has been extended one (very) last time to Sunday, 1 March. To
enable people to already start planning their journeys, abstracts received
thus far will now be reviewed and the authors notified of acceptance.*

This Workshop <http://sites.google.com/icsu-wds.org/lac-workshop-2020> is
convened by WDS, in collaboration with the Brazilian Academy of Sciences
<http://www.abc.org.br/en/>, the São Paulo Research Foundation
<http://www.fapesp.br/en>, and the Research Data Alliance
<https://www.rd-alliance.org/> (RDA). It builds on the success of the First
Latin America and Caribbean Workshop <http://lacworkshop.icsu-wds.org/> in
2018 that explored the data landscape in the region to understand the
opportunities and challenges, and discussed how data initiatives could be
supported by WDS. The Second Workshop will continue discussions on data
management best practices for data repositories and on new trends and
perspectives for scientific data systems. However, there will also be a
greater emphasis on analyzing and finding concrete solutions to the
technical, political, and infrastructure issues identified during the First

We invite all researchers and scientists currently involved in scientific
data management initiatives in the Latin American and the Caribbean region
to present their experiences, research, operations, and projects or
programmes at the Workshop. Abstracts for short oral presentations must be
in English and should not exceed 3000 characters. The deadline for abstract
submission is *Sunday, 1 March*.

Online registration is now open. The process is managed by FAPESP, who
officially invite you here <http://www.fapesp.br/eventos/wds> to join us in
São Paulo.
