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.

Session Proposals are invited at http://www.scidatacon.org/2016/ - the deadline is midnight UTC on 14 February 2016

See http://www.scidatacon.org/2016/ for further information about the themes and scope of SciDataCon 2016 and International Data Week, and the types of sessions invited.  

Please note that the Call for Sessions will be followed by a Call for Papers (deadline midnight UTC on 17 April 2016). That second call will invite:
papers specifically for sessions approved from the first call; or
papers submitted independent of approved sessions (which if selected will be organised into thematic sessions by the conference committee).
Additionally, a call will be made that this time for posters and demos.

We look forward to seeing you in Denver, Colorado, USA in September!

With very best wishes,
