IDW 2021 Postponed until June 2022
The founding organisations and the local hosts announce that International Data Week will be postponed to 20-23 June 2022 for the main conference. Associated events will take place in the period 18-26 June 2022. The conference will be a hybrid format with both in-person and virtual participation.
This decision was made in response to the continuing global COVID-19 crisis and its aftermath. In order to bring the international data community together and to ensure that the event would have the maximum impact for our hosts in Korea and internationally, having a significant in-person presence was an important element which would not have been possible in November 2021. Although we are keen to maximise the opportunity for participants to meet in Seoul, the organisers will ensure that the facility for high quality virtual participation remains.
Announcements will be made in due course about the arrangements for IDW 2022 and for some virtual events still scheduled for November 2021. CODATA and WDS will communicate shortly with those people who had already proposed sessions for SciDataCon. RDA will host a global 8-day virtual plenary meeting during the period from 3-18 November 2021 and will share more details on that event in the coming days.
We look forward to seeing you - hopefully in person - in Seoul in June 2022.
