European DDI (EDDI) Conference 

The EDDI conference is held towards the end of the year in rotating European cities. It is run by GESIS and the IDSC of IZA under the auspices of the DDI Alliance.  EDDI is designed to provide forum where DDI users from Europe and the world can gather to showcase their work and their progress toward DDI adoption, as well as discuss any questions or challenges they may have about the standard. EDDI includes presentations, poster sessions, and discussion sessions. The conference closes with a "meet the experts" session in which users will have a chance to lobby for their point of view with representatives from the Technical Committee of the DDI Alliance. The philosophy of EDDI is to be an open, inclusive DDI community-building activity.
