Summary: The case for effective and unique researcher identifiers has been made by many stakeholders including institutions, funders, publishers, policy advocates, and technical developers. However, despite this there is at best limited interest in the potential uses and implications of researcher identifiers from a key group, the researchers themselves. In this session we will explore the potential of services or tools that can offer a compelling value case for researchers, and seek to identify courses of action that could deliver that value case in a way that will increase the awareness and engagement of researchers in the development and discussion of identifier infrastructure. The workshop will be discussion driven throughout.
*Main question: what are the three features that will drive adoption from researchers, and can be implemented in the next six months?
*present some sample ideas
*Breakout groups: develop and list potential tools and services for researchers
*Report back and discussion: selection of the top three ideas
*Breakout groups: one group to work on implementation of each idea
*Final report back and summary for report back to main group
