SciDataCon 2022

SciDataCon 2022 will run onsite in Seoul, Republic of Korea, and virtually 20-23 June 2022. 

SciDataCon is the international conference for scrutiny and discussion of the frontier issues of data in research.  The scope of SciDataCon covers policy matters and the place of data in the scientific endeavour and scholarly communications; the opportunities of the data revolution for the global research enterprise; innovations in data science and data stewardship; and the challenge of developing a sustainable data ecosystem, including the role of education and capacity building.  Since 2016, SciDataCon has been organised as an integral part of International Data Week.

SciDataCon is organised by the two data bodies of the International Science Council (ISC): CODATA (the ISC’s Committee on Data) and the WDS (the ISC’s World Data System International Programme Office).  

SciDataCon 2022 comprises sessions covering the following themes:

  • Data to Improve our World: The role of data to address global challenges
  • The State of Open Science Globally
  • Research Transparency, Accountability, and Reproducibility
  • Data, Research and Industry: The Interface between Data-intensive Research and Innovation
  • Science and Society: Engagement and participation
  • Empowering and Enabling Society: Data Science and Stewardship Education and Data Literacy
