The founding organisations, the International Science Council’s Committee on Data (CODATA) and World Data System (WDS), the Research Data Alliance (RDA), and the local hosts announce that registration is now open for International Data Week 2022 (IDW 2022) taking place on 20-23 June 2022 in Seoul, South Korea. The conference will be held as a hybrid event, in-person and virtually. Associated events will take place in the period 18-26 June 2022.

Take advantage of the early bird pricing by registering before 31 May. Reduced pricing is also available for students and attendees originating from and who are also based in low and middle income countries.
The IDW 2022 Organising Committee has decided to initially open the virtual part of the registration. Registration for in-person attendance and updated information on logistics, transportation and visa requirements will be made available in the coming days. The Korean government recently announced phasing out of COVID-19 restrictions as of 21 March and we are now carefully considering all details of the changes to the local COVID-19 policy. We are keen to maximise the opportunity for participants to meet in Seoul and further announcements will be made in due course about the in-person element of the event.
In order to switch to in-person attendance once the option is available on this website, our system requires all attendees to create an account on idw2022.org, before you can access actual registration to the event. This will enable you to come back by login into your account and check your past purchases on ‘My Page’.
IDW 2022 will be hosted in Seoul, South Korea, by Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI), committed by the Ministry of Science and ICT, Seoul Metropolitan Government, National Library of Korea, and National Assembly Library, with the support of the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science (KRISS), Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU), Korea Institute of Oriental Medicine and the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources.
International Data Week (IDW) brings together data scientists, researchers, industry leaders, entrepreneurs, policymakers and data stewards from disciplines across the globe to explore how best to exploit the data revolution to improve science and society through data-driven discovery and innovation.
IDW combines the Research Data Alliance (RDA) Plenary Meeting, the biannual meeting of this international member organisation working to develop and support global infrastructure facilitating data sharing and reuse, and SciDataCon, the scientific conference addressing the frontiers of data in research organised by the International Science Council’s Committee on Data (CODATA) and World Data System (WDS).
The theme chosen for this edition is DATA TO IMPROVE OUR WORLD. In the era of the fourth industrial revolution, data have become an important resource that drives science and technology and leads to new discoveries, innovation, and economic growth.
