tcworld 2018: What's New with iiRDS?

iiRDS was one of the central topics at the tcworld conference 2018: at the new iiRDS Café, in lectures, showcases, and tutorials. There was also a discussion on Twitter, among other things about the name, which is so difficult to pronounce.

There were some interesting suggestions: Irdis (Ürdis), Ay-Two-Ar-Dee (I2RD) and Ay-Ar-Dee (IRD). But then someone mentioned Ar-Two-Dee-Two, and that was the end of the discussion.

New: iiRDS Café

A year in review and a look ahead

What has happened at iiRDS in the last year? What happens next? That was the topic of the presentation by Ulrike Parson and Mark Schubert.

The iiRDS consortium and the steering committee started their work, version 1.0 was released, and the iiRDS working groups were formed.
