Workshop on Big Data for International Scientific Programmes: Challenges and Opportunities

 
Co-sponsored by RDA and with a number of important partners, CODATA is convening a major Workshop on Big Data for International Scientific Programmes which will take place in Beijing on 8-9 June 2014.  
 
The workshop is designed to provide a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges of ‘Big Data’ for international collaborative science programmes, including ICSU-sponsored programmes such as Future Earth and Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR), as well as international initiatives such as the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), the International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE), and initiatives sponsored by the Belmont Forum.  The results of the workshop will also help set an agenda for CODATA activities on Big Data for international science.
 
The workshop will feature a range of presentations by international experts as well as discussions of how to collaborate to make best use of Big Data for international science and is co-sponsored by the ICSU World Data System (ICSU-WDS), the Research Data Alliance (RDA), the International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE) and the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (RADI).
