DataCite in Buenos Aires, a recap of the csv,conf,v7

The DataCite team had an intense week in Buenos Aires for the csv,conf,v7 and we tell you (almost) all about it on this blog!

What is csv,conf?

csv,conf is a community-organized event by and for datamakers from all around the world. Participants get together to discuss open data, and how it can be used to solve problems across research, journalism, government, and beyond! Attendees learn about ongoing work, share skills, exchange ideas (and stickers!), and kickstart collaborations. csv,conf,v7 took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina on April 17-19 and it was a special one because it was the first time it was hosted in the southern hemisphere. 

The event is completely organized by a team of volunteers with the generous contributions of sponsoring organizations and the support of friend communities.
