======= Call For Scientific Presentations =======

The 23rd International CODATA Conference

"Open Data and Information for a Changing Planet"

October 28-31, 2012, Taipei


Submission Deadline: June 15, 2012

Never before have scientific data and information played such a major
role in addressing the problems and challenges facing our planet.
The calls for freely available, publicly accessible data are gaining
a stronger voice. Nurturing an open environment for data and information
is crucial for disseminating research results to a wide audience and
allowing thorough, collaborative analysis.

The theme of the 23rd International CODATA Conference is "Open Data
and Information for a Changing Planet". The conference will bring
together stakeholders from industry, research and academia who will
highlight, debate and address open data and information issues over
a three day period. It will provide an international forum where
these stakeholders, in collaboration with the ICSU and CODATA
international networks and other networks, can create a dialogue on
legal, economic, and technological challenges; evaluate societal
impacts; and put forward possible solutions that can in turn benefit
the planet.

The CODATA International Conference is held once every two years, and
is organized by CODATA (The Committee on Data for Science and Technology)
under the auspices of ICSU (International Council for Science). The
past three CODATA International Conferences were held in Beijing (2006),
Kiev (2008), and Cape Town (2010). The 2012 CODATA International
conference will be held in Taipei on October 28-31.

The conference is devoted to quality, reliability, management and
accessibility of data for science and technology. Abstracts and
Session Proposals are solicited on, but not limited to, the following

* e-Science and e-Science Networks
* Information Science and Computational informatics
* Data Mining and Knowledge Management
