It’s hard to believe, but International Data Week (IDW) 2018 is only five
weeks away!  Hopefully, you will be joining us in beautiful Botswana for a
data-filled week of great conversation, networking and collaboration. If
you aren’t sure yet, don’t be deterred, there is still time to book your
travel and register for the event.

Here are a few reminders about deadlines and other important information:


   *The organizing committee of International Data Week 2018 and the
   Botswana Ministry of Tertiary Education, Research Science and Technology
   are pleased and honoured to announce that the Botswana President - His

   <http://internationaldataweek.org/registration-costs>*Note: we have been
   advised by the local organisers that if you attempt to register for IDW
   using a credit card and your transaction is not approved, it is likely that
   you are using a card that is not enrolled in 3D Security, which requires
   processing through sending a one-time pin. In the case of this occurring to
   you, the local organisers advise that you follow up with your card/issuer
   for corroboration of this possibility. For this payment gateway in use, it
   is a standard security feature. If no card alternatives exist supporting
   this security feature for you, a bank transfer may be the best option
   (details given in the payment option step of the registration process).*

   Be sure to submit your poster this week to ensure your spot at IDW’s
   Poster Sessions
