About IDW2022

International Data Week (IDW) brings together data scientists, researchers, industry leaders, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and data stewards from disciplines across the globe to explore how to improve science and society through data-driven discovery and innovation. International Data Week 2022 (IDW2022) 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).

The overarching theme of IDW2022 is ‘Data to Improve Our World’. In addition to highlighting the need for data education and governance, demonstrating the importance of high-quality research data stewardship, data science, and data infrastructures, and exploring the ‘state of the art’ in all things data, IDW2022 will also emphasise the following subthemes:

  • Research Transparency and Reproducibility
  • Data, Research, and Industry: The Interface between Data-intensive Research and Innovation
  • Empowering and Enabling Society: Data (Science) Education and Data Literacy
  • Transdisciplinary Research and Citizen Science

A draft programme agenda is available here.

IDW2022 will be a hybrid format with in-person events as well as virtual participation. The main conference will be from 20-23 June in Seoul, South Korea, hosted by the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI), committed by the Ministry of Science and ICT, Seoul Metropolitan Government, National Library of Korea, and National Assembly Library, with the support of the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science (KRISS), Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU), Korea Institute of Oriental Medicine and the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources.
