The CODATA 2019 Conference will be held on 18-19 September 2019 in Beijing,
China. This year’s conference theme is: Towards next-generation data-driven
science: policies, practices and platforms.  *The conference will follow a
high-level workshop, 16-17 September 2019, on ‘Implementing Open Research
Data Policy and Practice’ that will examine such challenges in China and
elsewhere in the light of the emergence of data policies and in particular
the China State Council’s Notice on ‘Measures for Managing Scientific
*CODATA 2019: Towards next-generation data-driven science**: **policies,
practices, and platforms*

Science globally is being transformed by new digital technologies.  At the
same time addressing the major global challenges of the age requires the
analysis of vast quantities of heterogeneous data from multiple sources.
In response, many countries, regions and scientific domains have developed
Research Infrastructures to assist with the management, stewardship and
analysis.  These developments have been stimulated by Open Science policies
and practices, both those developed by funders and those that have emerged
from communities.  The FAIR principles and supporting practices seek to
accelerate this process and unlock the potential of analysis at scale with
machines.  *This conference provides a significant opportunity to survey
and examine these developments from a global perspective.*

The convening organisations are pleased to invite you to contribute to the
program by proposing sessions.  The deadline for session proposals is 15
April 2019: *https://conference.codata.org/CODATA_2019/submit/

All proposals related to open science and open data, FAIR data, research
data management and stewardship, research infrastructures and platforms are
welcomed. The following themes are of particular interest:
*1. FAIR and Open data policies*

   - Open data policies, their implications and implementation
   - FAIR data, its challenges and opportunities
   - Incentives and metrics for data and research contribution
   - Trustworthiness and sustainability for FAIR data, research
   infrastructures, data repositories
   - Co-operation in research data policies and management at
   international, national and institutional levels
   - Data policies towards the next-generation open science community

*2. Advanced research infrastructures for Open Science and FAIR data*

   - Opportunities and challenges in research infrastructures.
   - Disciplinary technical infrastructure for research data management and
   data stewardship.
   - The development of Open Science Clouds, Platforms and Commons: a new
   model for coordination?
   - Successes and models for different aspects of the research data
   management and stewardship infrastructure
   - Institutional research data management and stewardship status, models
   and challenges.
   - Data management technologies and interoperability between human and
   technical processes.
   - Data science education and training.
   - Business models for Open Science, FAIR data, research infrastructures
   and data stewardship.
   - Key data specifications, RDM protocols and research infrastructures
   - Other technologies and standards feature open data issues.

*3. Data driven scientific discovery and decision-making.*

   - Case studies and exploration of science discoveries based on
   data-driven research
   - Data-driven decision-making, from data to evidence
   - Disciplinary data applications
   - Data success stories

*4. Data intensive research for international scientific and global

   - FAIR data, interoperability and data integration in multi-disciplinary
   research areas.
   - Data-driven practices in support of the United Nation’s sustainable
   development goals.
   - Data-driven practices in support of Sendai and disaster risk reduction
   - Data-driven practices in support of Resilient Cities; biodiversity;
   climate change adaptation; agriculture; hydrology and other research areas.


   - *Sessions:* Sessions will be 90 minutes.  Two session formats are
   suggested: 1) papers sessions which may include research papers, practice
   papers or a mixture of these; 2) lightning talks followed by a structured
   panel discussion.  Paper presentations should be a minimum of 15 minutes;
   papers sessions should include a maximum of 4-5 papers.
   - *Keynote speakers:* there will be keynote sessions on the morning of
   each day.
   - Plenary panel discussion: the conference will close with a Plenary
   Panel discussion featuring short presentations.
