From September 11-17, 2016, data professionals and researchers from all disciplines and from across the globe will convene in Denver, Colorado for International Data Week (IDW). The theme of this landmark event is ‘From Big Data to Open Data: Mobilizing the Data Revolution’.  

As such, the International Data Week will bring together data scientists, researchers, industry leaders, entrepreneurs, policy makers and data stewards to explore how best to exploit the data revolution to improve our knowledge and benefit society through data-driven research and   innovation.

IDW comprises three complementary events: 

 

SciDataCon 2016-Advancing the Frontiers of Data in Research

addressing a range of fundamental issues around the ‘Data Revolution’ and the data-driven transformation of research.

 

International
Data Forum

discussing the major opportunities and challenges of the data revolution, from ‘Big Data’ to ‘Open Data.’

 

8th Research Data Alliance Plenary Meeting

making concrete progress in technical and social areas on topics related to research data sharing and exchange.

  2. A Plenary Session, which will provide a formal mechanism for membership consultation, and where membership issues can be discussed.

To facilitated the preparation of this meeting, we would appreciate if you could pre-register here.

SciDataCon 2016

SciDataCon is the international conference for scrutiny and discussion of the frontier issues of data in research.  The scope of SciDataCon covers policy matters and the place of data in the scientific endeavour and scholarly communications; the opportunities of the data revolution for the global research enterprise; innovations in data science and data stewardship; and the challenge of developing a sustainable data ecosystem, including the role of education and capacity building.  

SciDataCon 2016 seeks to advance the frontiers of data in all areas of research. This means addressing a range of fundamental and urgent issues around the ‘Data Revolution’ and the recent data-driven transformation of research and the responses to these issues in the conduct of research.

International Data Forum

This event will be the centrepiece of IDW, bringing together international researchers, industrialists, policy makers and educators to discuss the major opportunities and challenges of the data revolution, from ‘Big Data’ to ‘Open Data.’  Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from world-renowned keynote speakers and collaborate with one another regarding the national and international dimensions of the data revolution, its implications for research and policy, and the linkages between research, industry and education that are required for the global community to fully exploit new opportunities.

8th RDA Plenary Meeting

The 8th RDA Plenary Meeting offers attendees a unique opportunity to network and collaborate with colleagues and peers in various disciplines, and make concrete progress in technical and social areas on topics related to research data sharing and exchange.  Besides keynote talks by leading members of the community, important features of the RDA Plenary include the highlighting of organizations who have adopted RDA’s outputs, meetings of Working Groups and Interest Groups, and ‘Birds of a Feather’ discussions, which explore new potential working or interest group topics. The Meeting will also host a marketplace for small and medium enterprises involved with Big Data. The RDA Europe Early Career Scientist & Researcher Support Programme is also confirmed for this Meeting, which will offer up to 20 early career domain researchers and data practitioners the opportunity to attend the meetings, interact with working and interest groups and showcase their studies.
