The keynote speakers and (near-final) programme for the CODATA 2019 Beijing
Conference, ‘Towards Next-Generation Data-Driven Science 2019 Programme’
have been announced.  The conference will take place at the Friendship
Hotel, Beijing, 19-20 September.

The keynote presentations will explore advances in Big Earth Data; the role
of data science to support the UN landmark agreements (on the Climate
Crisis, Sustainable Development Goals and Disaster Risk Reduction; the role
of UNESCO in advancing Open Science; and, the importance of data and the
concept of ‘urban health’ for resilient cities.

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.

We look forward to seeing you in Beijing!
