The founding organisations, the International Science Council’s Committee on Data (CODATA) and World Data System (WDS), and the Research Data Alliance (RDA), and the local hosts announce that International Data Week 2021 will be postponed to 20-23 June 2022 for the main conference. Associated events will take place in the period 18-26 June 2022. The conference will be a hybrid format with in-person in Seoul, South Korea as well as virtual participation.

This decision was made in response to the continuing global COVID-19 crisis and its aftermath. In order to bring the international data community together and to ensure that the event would have the maximum impact for our hosts in Korea and internationally, it was felt important to have a significant in person element, which would not have been possible in November 2021.

Although we are keen to maximise the opportunity for participants to meet in Seoul, the organisers will ensure that there remains the facility for high quality virtual participation.

Announcements will be made in due course about the arrangements for IDW 2022 and for some virtual events which will still take place in November 2021. CODATA and WDS will communicate with those who had already proposed sessions for SciDataCon. RDA will host a global eight-day virtual plenary meeting during the period from 3-18 November 2021.

We look forward to seeing you – we hope in person – in Seoul in June 2022!

Please check the International Data Week website for up-to-date information. 

IDW 2022 will be hosted by the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI), committed by the Ministry of Science and ICT, Seoul Metropolitan Government, National Library of Korea, and National Assembly Library, with the support of the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science (KRISS) and Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU).

This landmark event will bring together data scientists, researchers, industry leaders, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and data stewards from disciplines across the globe to explore how best to exploit the data revolution to improve science and society through data-driven discovery and innovation. IDW 2022 combines the 18th RDA Plenary Meeting, the biannual meeting of this international member organization working to develop and support global infrastructure facilitating data sharing and reuse, and SciDataCon 2021, the scientific conference addressing the frontiers of data in research organized by CODATA and WDS.

Conference logistics and accommodation information will be available on the Conference Website.
