Subject: SciDataCon 2016: Call for Session Proposals (Part of International
Data Week)
To: esip-all at lists.esipfed.org

Dear colleagues,

Session proposals are invited for *SciDataCon 2016*: *Advancing the
Frontiers of Data in Research*, which will take place in Denver, Colorado,
USA on 11-13 September 2016 as part of *International Data Week*, 11-17
Sept 2016.

SciDataCon 2016 seeks to advance the frontiers of data in all areas of
research. This means addressing a range of fundamental and urgent issues
around the ‘Data Revolution’ and the recent data-driven transformation of
research and the responses to these issues in the conduct of research.

See http://www.scidatacon.org/2016/ for further information about the
themes and scope of the conference, and the Call for Session Proposals.

*Session Proposals are invited at http://www.SciDataCon.org/2016/
<http://www.scidatacon.org/2016/> and the deadline is 14 February 2016

*International Data Week, 11-17 September 2016, Denver, Colorado, USA*

The ICSU World Data System, ICSU Committee on Data for Science and
Technology (CODATA), and Research Data Alliance (RDA) are delighted to
announce that International Data Week 2016 (IDW 2016) will be held from
11–17 September 2016 at the Sheraton Downtown Hotel in Denver
<http://www.sheratondenverdowntown.com/>, Colorado.

Under the theme From Big Data to Open Data – Mobilizing the Data
Revolution, IDW will bring together data scientists, researchers, industry
leaders, entrepreneurs, policy makers, and data stewards through three
complementary events:

*1: SciDataCon 2016: Advancing the Frontiers of Data in Research, 11-13
SciDataCon, is the international conference for scrutiny and discussion of
the frontier issues of data in research.  It is organised bi-annually by
CODATA (the Committee on Data of ICSU, the International Council for
Science) and the ICSU World Data System.  SciDataCon 2016 features
scientific papers from a wide range of perspectives.  The scope is
explicitly broad and inclusive, addressing all aspects of the role of data
in research.

*2: An International Data Forum, 14 September*
This event will be the centerpiece of IDW, bringing together international
researchers, industrialists, policy makers and educators to discuss the
major opportunities and challenges of the data revolution, from ‘Big Data’
to ‘Open Data.’  Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from
world-renown keynote speakers and collaborate with each other regarding the
national and international dimensions of the data revolution, its
implications for research and policy, and the linkages between research,
industry and education that are required for the global community to fully
exploit new opportunities.

*3: The 8th Research Data Alliance Plenary Meeting, 15-16 September*
The 8th RDA Plenary Meeting offers attendees a unique opportunity to
network and collaborate with colleagues and peers in various disciplines,
and make concrete progress in technical and social areas on topics related
to research data sharing and exchange.  Besides keynote talks by leading
members of the community, important features of the RDA Plenary include the
highlighting of organizations who have adopted RDA’s outputs, meetings of
Working Groups and Interest Groups, and ‘Birds of a Feather’ discussions,
which explore new potential working or interest group topics. The Meeting
will also host a marketplace for small and medium enterprises involved with
Big Data. The RDA Europe Early Career Scientist & Researcher Support
Programme is also confirmed for this Meeting, which will offer up to 20
early career domain researchers and data practitioners the opportunity to
attend the meetings, interact with working and interest groups and showcase
their studies.

Look for more details in the upcoming weeks regarding registration, hotel
accommodations, speaker line-up, sponsorship opportunities and calls for
papers and posters at *http://www.internationaldataweek.org/
