Introducing IDW2021 Webinar - February

Date: 
16 Feb 2021 - 08:00 to 08:45 UTC

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. 

 

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 - Data to Improve our World: The Role of Data to Address Global Challenges - 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 4 days will cover the following sub themes: The State of Open Science / Research Globally; Research Transparency, Accountability and Reproducibility; Data, Research and Industry: The Interface between Data-intensive Research and Innovation; Citizen Science; Empowering and Enabling Society: Data Science and Stewardship Education and Data Literacy.
