CfPs: International Conference on Data Sharing and Integration for Global Sustainability (SciDataCon 2014), 2-5 Nov, at JNU Convention Centre

International Conference on Data Sharing and Integration for Global Sustainability (SciDataCon 2014)
2–5 November 2014
Venue: Jawaharlal Nehru University Convention Centre, New Delhi, hosted by the Indian National Science Academy.

Organizer: The Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) and the World Data System (WDS), interdisciplinary committees of the International Council for Science (ICSU)

Call for Papers (Deadline: 16 June 2014)
Addressing the theme of Data Sharing and Integration for Global Sustainability, SciDataCon 2014 will feature four main tracks: (A) Dynamic Planet, (B) Global Development, (C) Transformations Towards Sustainability, and (D) Data Science and Services.  This structure is intended to bridge cross-cutting data themes and research themes of Future Earth, an international research programme on global sustainability coordinated by ICSU and its partners and starting in 2015. By focusing on the intersection of data issues and scientific research challenges—and by advancing data science and developing international data services—SciDataCon will also amplify the message of like-minded global data initiatives promoting data sharing and interoperability, such as the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) and the recently established Research Data Alliance (RDA).
SciDataCon will provide a unique platform bringing together international experts and practitioners in data sciences, technologies and management; researchers from the natural, social, health, and computer sciences; research funders and sponsors; and policy makers and advisors.

Abstracts for Oral Presentations
