About International Data Week and SciDataCon
International Data Week brings together a global community of data
scientists and data stewards; researchers from all domains; data,
interoperability and informatics experts from all fields; industry leaders,
entrepreneurs and policymakers.
This event will be an inclusive and celebratory Festival of Data, with
in-person and virtual components, highlighting the opportunities for the
positive transformation of our world in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic
and other global challenges.
IDW 2023 will combine the RDA Plenary Meeting, the biannual meeting of this
international member organisation working to develop and support global
infrastructure facilitating data sharing and reuse, and SciDataCon 2023,
the scientific conference addressing the frontiers of data in research
organised by CODATA and WDS.
IDW 2023 will be hosted by the University of Salzburg through its
interdisciplinary Data Science group and the Geoinformatics department,
supported by the Governor of Salzburg and with assistance from the Austrian
Academy of Sciences – GIScience and the European Umbrella Organization for
SciDataCon 2023: High-level Themes
The overarching theme of International Data Week and SciDataCon 2023 is *A
Festival of Data.*
There are seven themes for SciDataCon 2023:
1. Advancing data through cutting-edge technology
2. Honouring all actors working with data
3. Advocating for Data Ethics
4. Championing Data beyond FAIR
5. Building resilient data in times of crises
6. Celebrating data pedagogy
7. Engaging with SciDataCon Persistent Themes
See an outline of suggested topics under each of the SciDataCon themes:
The detailed listing
intended to illuminate topics tied to the theme, but the topic list is not
meant to be exhaustive or limiting. Please note, however, that the simple
presentation of research results is not in scope. The primary focus should
always be on the data issues in different fields of research.
Also in scope are proposals for sessions, papers and posters addressing any
of the core, persistent themes of data science and data stewardship that
are typically covered in SciDataCon and International Data Week. Remember,
International Data Week 2023 is a Festival of Data, so the intention of the
programme committee is to be celebratory and inclusive of all interesting
aspects of data in research.
*Please note that in contrast to previous editions, for SciDataCon 2023 the
organisers will be accepting proposals of sessions and individual papers
simultaneously. The deadline for submission of proposals is 15 May 2023.
The deadline for posters is 31 May.*
Sessions at SciDataCon explore research and practice. Sessions may include
presentations of original research, of interesting data practices, or a mix
of the two. Sessions may be structured around conventional presentations
and discussion, or they may take more interactive formats, including panels
and interactive workshops. All session proposals will be peer-reviewed.
They should be compelling and of interest to the global data community. The
format, structure, and outcomes should be clearly expressed.
*Submit the proposal at *
Your proposal should:
- Explain the significance of the issues to be tackled in the session.
- Provide a clear description of the approach, structure, format, and
suggested agenda for the session.
- Provide as much information as possible about proposed speakers and
the subject of their papers.
- Be no shorter than 300 words and no longer than 900 words.
Suggested session types
- Research Presentations
- Practice Presentations
- Mix of Research and Practice Presentations
- Panel Discussion
- Ignition/Lightning Talks and Structured Discussion
- Group Discussions (World Café)
- Workshop Session (state format)
- None of the above (you may suggest an alternative format, but you
should describe it clearly)
About SciDataCon Sessions
- Please take into account the following considerations when preparing
your proposal for a SciDataCon 2023 session.
- Sessions will be 90 minutes in duration.
- Session proposals should explicitly address one or more of the
conference themes outlined above.
- Session proposals should clearly describe the format and ‘type’ of the
session: see above for information about the different formats of sessions
that are invited.
- The proposed session structure should allow sufficient time for
interaction and discussion with participants and audience while staying
within the time assigned for each session.
Presentations and posters at SciDataCon 2023
*We encourage you to submit your presentation or poster abstract via this
*Presentation abstracts must be submitted to the ‘Conference Abstracts’
category.* Click [Submit abstract]. In the submission form, you should
select the [Presentation Submissions] ‘session’.
Abstracts will be peer reviewed for individual quality and, if accepted,
will be assigned to an accepted session or grouped into thematic sessions
by the SciDataCon Programme Committee. Accepted abstracts will be
available from the conference website and will form a persistent
collection, so please consider the following recommendations carefully:
- Please submit your proposal of a length appropriate to the
intervention. For example, we recommend that the proposal for a research
paper should be 600-900 words and for a practice paper 300-600 words.
These are guides and please use your judgement. We strongly discourage
proposals of more than 900 words or less than 300 words.
- The proposal should clearly specify the core idea, the context of the
research or practice, and the audience to whom it is relevant.
Insufficiently developed proposals will not be selected.
*Poster abstracts must be submitted to the Conference Posters category. * Click
[Submit poster abstract]. In the submission form, you should select the
[Poster Submissions] ‘session’.
Posters will appear in dedicated virtual and in-person poster sessions.
Posters can often be a more effective way of communicating key technical
features of a paper and providing a visual summary that really engages the
viewer. For a Poster Abstract we suggest 300-600 words and certainly no
more than 900 words in length.
- November 2022, release of call for sessions, presentations and posters.
- 23:59 UTC on 31 March 2023, deadline for submission of proposals for
sessions and presentations.
- 31 May 2023, deadline for posters.
