CALL FOR APPLICATIONS TO HOST INTERNATIONAL DATA WEEK 2025
In consideration of revised timescales, and to better allow for the preparation of proposals, the founding organisations have decided to extend the call for proposals to 31 January 2022.
THE FOUNDING ORGANISATIONS ARE INVITING PROPOSALS TO HOST THE FIFTH EDITION OF THE INTERNATIONAL DATA WEEK IN SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2025.
Two more editions are being prepared:
- IDW 2022, 20–23 June 2022, Seoul, Republic of Korea
- IDW 2023, 23–26 October 2023, Salzburg, Austria
Applications should demonstrate that local hosts have access to both a suitable physical venue and a virtual conference platform; to strong support from local organisations and government; to good connections to universities, industry, and research organisations in the country and region; and to solid financial support.
We envision IDW 2025 as a four-day event that integrates the activities of a SciDataCon international conference and an RDA Plenary Meeting. IDW includes both research sessions and focused working meetings, as well as broad plenary sessions of general interest. The days before and after each event will be set aside for the business and governance meetings of CODATA, RDA, and WDS, and potentially other co-located meetings.
Applications should be sent by email to all of the IDW founding organisation representatives listed below no later than 31 January 2022 in electronic format based on the details and template at the end of the IDW 2025 Call for Applications document.
Applications should be addressed to:
Simon Hodson, CODATA Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hilary Hanahoe, RDA Secretary General, at hilary.hanahoe@rda-foundation.
Bonnie Carroll, Interim WDS Executive Director, at WDS-IPO-ED@utk.edu
