    What is an ORCID ID and why should you get one?

    Have you been asked for an ORCID ID when submitting a  manuscript to a journal or in grant submission systems?  Do you have a  common name or have publications under different aliases?   Would you like  to keep track of your research outputs all in one place?  Attend this  workshop to learn more about ORCID IDs and why you should get one, how to  get your free ORCID ID, and how to set up your ORCID profile.

    ORCID is increasingly integrated into research systems, including ScienCV.  Some funders (such as the Department of Energy) and publishers (such as  PLOS and Nature), want you to provide your ORCID ID when you submit a  proposal or manuscript.  ORCID stands for Open Researcher and Contributor  Identification. The purpose of ORCID is to disambiguate authors of  scholarly work and to better connect researchers to their research output  and to each other. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that  distinguishes you from other researchers.

    On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 the guns fell silent and the world's first global conflict -- "The Great War" -- came to an end. One of the most destructive wars in modern history, the conflict resulted in the slaughter of more than 16 million soldiers and civilians. This November UIC will mark the centenary of the end of World War I with 11 days of interdisciplinary conversations and events exploring the war than transformed our contemporary world.
