International Scientific Organizations Support Data Sharing for Sustainability

SciDataCon2014, the International Conference on Data Sharing and Integration for Global Sustainability, took place on 2–5 November in New Delhi, India. The Conference was motivated by the conviction that the most significant research challenges—and in particular the pressing issues relating to global sustainability in the face of ongoing natural and human-induced changes to the planetary system—cannot be properly addressed without paying attention to issues relating to equitable access to quality-assured and interoperable datasets and their long-term management and preservation.
