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 primary objective of the conference is to bring together a large and
representative part of the global data community. IDW 2016 and 2018 were
huge successes, and we want to continue that trajectory and increase
impact. These are important times in the world of data and we seek local
partners and a venue that will help us communicate that excitement, mission
and urgency.

Two more editions are being prepared:

   - IDW 2022, 20–23 June 2022, Seoul, Republic of Korea
   - IDW 2023, 23–26 October 2023, Salzburg, Austria

International Data Week is a global and inclusive event. The founding
organisations are keen to engage with cities and countries where they have
not held an IDW or related meeting before. Proposals from Low and Middle
Income Countries (LMICs) are strongly encouraged; proposals from the High
Income Economies should show how they will work with the founding
organisations to maximise participation from LMICs. Wherever the proposal
comes from, it will be important to demonstrate how the partnership will
advance the missions of the founding organisations, ensure the impact of
IDW, and enhance membership of and engagement with the three organisations.

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 simon at codata.org
   - Hilary Hanahoe, RDA Secretary General, at
   hilary.hanahoe at rda-foundation.org
   - Bonnie Carroll, Interim WDS Executive Director, at WDS-IPO-ED at utk.edu
