International Data Week 2018
Description:

International Data Week 2018 (IDW 2018) was hosted by the Botswana Open Science and Open Data Forum. It brought together data scientists, researchers, industry leaders, entrepreneurs, policymakers and data stewards from all disciplines and geographies across the globe.

Co-organized by the ISC World Data System (WDS), the ISC Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA), the Research Data Alliance (RDA), University of Botswana (UoB) and the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf), IDW 2018 combined the 12th RDA Plenary Meeting, the bi-annual meeting of the research data community, and SciDataCon 2018, the scientific conference addressing the frontiers of data in research.

In a hyper-connected world where the Internet is pervasive and web technologies are driving major changes in our lives, research has become more than ever before digital and international. With the theme of ‘The Digital Frontiers of Global Science’, the event was a rich week of science and data, featuring renowned keynote speakers, plenary panels and discussions, and the presentation of high quality research and practical working sessions for international collaborations. Focus topics included:

  • Research issues in a global and digital age
  • Applications, progress and challenges of data intensive research
  • Data infrastructure and enabling practices for international and collaborative research

Research Data Alliance Eleventh Plenary
Description:
The 11th RDA Plenary Meeting will take place from the 21st to the 23rd March 2018 in Berlin, Germany. Under the theme "From Data to Knowledge", the Plenary meeting welcomes the participation of all data scientists, experts and practitioners engaged in the advancement of data-driven science and economy. The Research Data Alliance and the 2.5-day Plenary meeting provide the ideal, neutral and trustworthy forum to discuss the opportunities and challenges of a global data ecosystem of best practices, standards and interoperable data infrastructures fostering cross-disciplinary knowledge and innovation.

Geo-Data Informatics 2011: Exploring the Life Cycle, Citation and Integration of Geo-Data
Description:
The workshop will bring together the requisite scientists, information specialists, librarians, computer scientists and data managers who specialize and generalize in a broad variety of geo- discipline areas and applications, with the primary objective to: to substantially advance discussions and directions of data life cycle, data integration and data citation, with strong emphasis on end-use, and to provide a state-of-the-field report to NSF and the USGS of the geoinformatics community’s capabilities and needs that could in turn ultimately benefit from an academic-multi-agency community-focused set of development activities. Additional deliverables would include: a) Readiness assessment and identification of gaps for both technology and education around geo-data informatics and their priorities, b) Grand challenge opportunities as well as immediate next steps, c) Identification of additional stakeholders and means to include their inputs. The time is right for a series of discussions across the various geoscience discipline communities. The proposed workshop is a forum for this discussion and is an important component of the conversation, which must occur immediately. It is very likely that a highly distributed implementation will be required and these will rely upon a number of focused and coordinated efforts.
