Announcement: International Data Week & SciDataCon 2016

The ICSU World Data System, ICSU Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA), and Research Data Alliance (RDA) are delighted to announce that International Data Week 2016 (IDW 2016) will be held from 11–17 September 2016 at the Sheraton Downtown Hotel in Denver, Colorado.

Under the theme From Big Data to Open Data – Mobilizing the Data Revolution, IDW will bring together data scientists, researchers, industry leaders, entrepreneurs, policy makers, and data stewards through three complementary events:

  1. SciDataCon 2016 – Advancing the Frontiers of Data in Research
  2. International Data Forum
  3. 8th RDA Plenary Meeting

The Calls for Sessions and for Papers for SciDataCon 2016 are now closed. The Conference is expected to feature scientific papers from a wide range of perspectives, and its scope has been kept explicitly broad and inclusive, covering all aspects of the role of data in research.
