The last chance to propose sessions for SciDataCon 2016 is fast approaching.  Submissions close on 14 March: http://www.scidatacon.org/2016/

SciDataCon 2016 is part of International Data Week http://www.internationaldataweek.org/ - this will be a landmark event and everyone who cares about issues relating to data in research will be there!

SciDataCon 2016 is the research conference part of International Data Week.  It is motivated by the conviction that the most significant contemporary research challenges—and in particular those reaching across traditional disciplines—cannot be properly addressed without paying attention to issues relating to data.  These issues include policy frameworks, data quality and interoperability, long-term stewardship of data, and the research skills, technologies, and infrastructures required by increasingly data-intensive research.  They also include frontier challenges for data science: for example, fundamental research questions relating to data integration, analysis of complex systems and models, epistemology and ethics in relation to Big Data, and so on.

The transformative effect of the data revolution needs to be examined from the perspective of all fields of research and its relationship to broader societal developments and to data-driven innovation scrutinised.  Taken together these issues form a multi-faceted challenge which cannot be tackled without expertise drawn from many disciplines and diverse roles in the research enterprise.  Furthermore, the transformations around data in research are essentially international and the response must be genuinely global.  SciDataCon is the international conference for research into these issues.

The opportunity to propose sessions at SciDataCon 2016 closes on Monday 14 March: http://www.scidatacon.org/2016/submit/

This will be followed shortly by a call for papers with a deadline of 1 May.
