My apologies if you receive this from multiple mailing lists. The following is a part of the announcement of "SciDataCon 2014" - a conference to be held in New Delhi, India, during November 2-5, 2014. The call for papers is out now, and session proposals and paper abstracts are due June 16, 2014. See http://www.scidatacon2014.org/ for more details.

"Research data are essential to all scientific endeavours. The emerging cultures of data sharing and publication, open access to, and reuse of data are the positive signs of an evolving research environment. Nevertheless, several cultural and technological challenges are still preventing the research community from realizing the full benefits of these tendencies.

The Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA)<http://codata.org/> and the World Data System (WDS)<http://www.icsu-wds.org/>, interdisciplinary committees of the International Council for Science (ICSU)<http://www.icsu.org/> are together advancing this agenda by actively promoting effective data policies and good data management practices in the research community, to produce better science, which ultimately benefits society.  As a major contribution to this effort, the two organizations are co-sponsoring and organizing a high profile international biennial conference, which will examine, in an integrated way, the data issues at the heart of the global research questions and in a manner that will have tangible benefit for research and society.

SciDataCon will provide a unique platform bringing together international experts and practitioners in data sciences, technologies and management; researchers from the natural, social, health, and computer sciences; research funders and sponsors; and policy makers and advisors."
