We are inviting interested individuals to a workshop for our NSF-funded
project titled “FAIR Facilities and Instruments: Enabling transparency,
reproducibility, and equity through persistent identifiers”. The workshop
will take place at the University of Colorado, Boulder, September 13 – 15,

The goal of the workshop will be to dig into important questions related to
assigning persistent identifiers (PID) for research facility and
instrumentation. Major questions for discussion at the workshop will

What best practices should be developed for handling instrument/facility

What are the advantages and disadvantages of the different PID systems for
research facilities and instrumentation?

What use cases exist for Instrument and Facility PID usage?

Can PIDs be used to support better discovery/request processes?
