Registration is still open for the second (Europe and Americas friendly time) webinar ‘Introducing International Data Week’ to be held on 4 March UTC 13:00-13:45 (Register here)
Please note also that the Call for Sessions for the SciDataCon component of International Data Week is currently open https://www.scidatacon.
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).
IDW 2021 will take place on 8–11 November 2021, hosted by the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI) and the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science (KRISS) in Seoul, South Korea.
The two webinars, presented in English, will introduce IDW 2021, the hosts, themes, and programme components, as well as provide key information on calls for session proposals. The 45 minute webinars will be recorded and made available following the events.
