Early Bird Deadline for IDW 2018 is Sunday, 30 September!

It’s hard to believe, but International Data Week (IDW) 2018 is only five weeks away!  Hopefully, you will be joining us in beautiful Botswana for a data-filled week of great conversation, networking and collaboration. If you aren’t sure yet, don’t be deterred, there is still time to book your travel and register for the event.  

Here are a few reminders about deadlines and other important information:

  • The deadline for early bird registration is this Sunday, 30 September.
    Register by then to secure the most inexpensive fee to attend the meeting.

    Note: we have been advised by the local organisers that if you attempt to register for IDW using a credit card and your transaction is not approved, it is likely that you are using a card that is not enrolled in 3D Security, which requires processing through sending a one-time pin. In the case of this occurring to you, the local organisers advise that you follow up with your card/issuer for corroboration of this possibility. For this payment gateway in use, it is a standard security feature. If no card alternatives exist supporting this security feature for you, a bank transfer may be the best option (details given in the payment option step of the registration process).

  • The organizing committee of International Data Week 2018 and the Botswana Ministry of Tertiary Education, Research Science and Technology are pleased and honoured to announce that the Botswana President - His Excellency Mokgweetsi Masisi - will formally open International Data Week and will deliver the opening keynote address for the week-long conference beginning on 5 November 2018 in Gaborone, Botswana.

If you have any questions or concerns about IDW, don’t hesitate to contact the IDW organizing committee at info@internationaldataweek.org.

We look forward to seeing you in Botswana!
