Register now to attend the international conference on data sharing and integration to address major global research issues!
SciDataCon 2014 is motivated by the conviction that the most significant research challenges – and in particular the pressing issues relating to global sustainability – cannot be properly addressed without due attention to various issues relating to data. SciDataCon aims to make explicit the connection between concrete and specific challenges to ensure environmental protection, economic prosperity and social well being along with the research questions that arise from these challenges and the necessary role of data policy, management and analysis in addressing these research questions. The effectiveness and credibility of research findings rely on the widest possible availability of quality-assessed and interoperable datasets.
Accordingly, with the ambition of building a bridge between important research concerns and related data issues, the programme is structured around four tracks which correspond to the research themes of ICSU's flagship Future Earth programme, while also taking into account the challenges of data science and services.
