CODATA 2019: “Towards next-generation data-driven science: policies, practices and platforms”
The CODATA 2019 Conference will be held on 18-19 September 2019 in Beijing, China. This year’s conference theme is: Towards next-generation data-driven science: policies, practices and platforms.
Call for sessions
Science globally is being transformed by new digital technologies. At the same time addressing the major global challenges of the age requires the analysis of vast quantities of heterogeneous data from multiple sources. In response, many countries, regions and scientific domains have developed Research Infrastructures to assist with the management, stewardship and analysis. These developments have been stimulated by Open Science policies and practices, both those developed by funders and those that have emerged from communities. The FAIR principles and supporting practices seek to accelerate this process and unlock the potential of analysis at scale with machines. This conference provides a significant opportunity to survey and examine these developments from a global perspective.
The convening organisations are pleased to invite you to contribute to the program by proposing sessions. The deadline for session proposals is 15 April 2019: https://conference.codata.org/CODATA_2019/submit/
All proposals related to open science and open data, FAIR data, research data management and stewardship, research infrastructures and platforms are welcomed. The following themes are of particular interest:
- FAIR and Open data policies
- Advanced research infrastructures for Open Science and FAIR data
- Data driven scientific discovery and decision-making
- Data intensive research for international scientific and global challenges
