Subject: VPHA status update April 2019 - poster abstracts accepted + Zenodo sharing?

Dear VPHA contributors and prospective contributions,

Since the previous general VPHA status update on January 17, we submitted two abstracts for posters at coming conferences - 1st abstract to EuroCVD-BalticALD in June in Luxembourg and 2nd abstract to ALD 2019 in Bellevue, Washington in July. It is my pleasure to inform you with this email that both abstracts have been accepted for presentation.

We will start to prepare the posters likely in May - expect more communication on this later. The purpose is to continue building on the ALD doctoral thesis list so that it will be as complete as possible (up to the end of 2018) when the posters are made, and at the same time it will allow conference participants to view it and notice missing items and help us make it still more complete for the review article which is being planned.

Related to the two abstracts and as well longer-plan archiving of VPHA, we propose to share the abstracts publicly already.
As mentioned briefly earlier (link1, link2), how to archive the ALD-history-evolving-file and other VPHA materials (mainly conference presentations) will be one item to solve once VPHA is getting fully finished. Zenodo (, by CERN) seems like a good candidate for the archival. I would like ask all authors of the abstracts: is it ok for you if these abstracts are uploaded in Zenodo and shared with a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license (CC BY 4.0)? This licence is typically used for Open Access publications, e.g. here. Discussion on this item is open and a file for it has been created in Google Docs: Zenodo-for-VPHA-thoughts. Unless views appear that sharing in Zenodo should NOT be done, the plan is to share the abstracts openly some time after mid May. Please express your viewpoints latest on May 12; we will assume that anyone who does not respond by that date, accepts the plan to share the two abstracts in Zenodo with CC BY 4.0 licence.

With best regards,
