WDS Asia–Oceania Conference 2019
Since the ICSU era, establishment of data-oriented networks in developing areas is one of the efforts of the WDS. Along this line, the ‘WDS Asia–Oceania Conference 2017’ was held on 27–29 September 2017 in Kyoto, Japan, bringing together 107 data practitioners, data repository managers, and researchers from 17 countries, mainly in the Asia–Oceania region. During the Conference, it was recognized that continuous efforts are vital to build a collaborative network of data repositories in developing regions. Following this common understanding, the WDS Asia–Oceania Conference 2019 will be held on 7–8 May 2019 in Beijing, China. This conference is hosted by the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Science.
