    Meeting objectives
    During the RDA 13th plenary, the  ESAD group initiated a discussion on the Ethics in Data Science and Analytics.  Following the keynote by Julia Stoyanovich underlying the challenges of fairness, accountability, and transparency in data science, the group has explored the ethical challenges around IoT, data science, and data analytics in their session. As a conclusion, we have identified a need to develop a reference curriculum for data ethics to support data scientist. A task force of “Ethics Curriculum development” has been established and started working. The task force aims to produce an output which can be adopted in data science programs and training activities in data-centric fields. 
    In this plenary session, we plan to present the current state of the work, get feedback from the community, and focus on specific aspects of the curriculum for specific use cases/ target groups.
