Workshop 2: Friday, September 30, 11.30am-1.00pm ET / 4.30-6.00pm BST

Each of these two virtual workshops consists of seven breakout sessions, led by experts on each role who will moderate the discussions. Workshop 1 focuses on the following roles: Funding acquisition, Investigation, Resources, Supervision, Validation, Writing - Original draft and Writing - Review & editing; Workshop 2 covers the remaining roles: Conceptualization, Data curation, Formal analysis, Methodology, Project administration, Software, and Visualization.

Registration is free, and both workshops will be held on the Zoom platform - please make sure you are using the latest version.

These workshops are open to everyone with an interest in CRediT, and will expand previous exploratory work on personas for the roles. Each workshop will explore seven of the 14 roles, in breakout sessions led by experts on each role, who will moderate the discussion.
