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 in Seoul, South Korea, hosted by the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI), the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science (KRISS), the National Library of Korea, the Korea Institute of Oriental Medicine (KIOM), the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM) and Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU). 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.
