> <https://codata.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/idw2021-scaled.jpg>Call
> for Sessions – SciDataCon 2021, part of International Data Week 2021
> Proposals are invited for sessions at International Data Week’s
> SciDataCon 2021: Data to Improve our World.
> SciDataCon 2021 is an integral part of International Data Week 2021,
> which will be held *both virtually and onsite* in Seoul, Republic of
> Korea, on 8–11 November 2021.
> Session proposals should be submitted at:
> http://www.scidatacon.org/IDW2021/. The deadline for proposals is *23:59
> UTC on 31 March 2021*.
> If you have not already done so, you should sign up and create an account
> on the SciDataCon website. Needless to say, this is not the same as
> registering for the conference. Conference registration will be available
> in due course at http://internationaldataweek.org/
> About International Data Week and SciDataCon
> International Data Week 2021 comprises two founding events: the 18th RDA
> Plenary and SciDataCon 2021. SciDataCon is a conference for peer-reviewed
> research and practice presentations, which covers all aspects of the role
>  of data in research, society and policy. As well as the core themes of
> data science and data stewardship, Open Science, and FAIR data and
> services, SciDataCon shares high-level themes with International Data
>  Week.
> SciDataCon 2021: High-level Themes
> The overarching theme of IDW 2021 and SciDataCon is *Data to Improve our
> World*. In our post-pandemic future, humanity has an opportunity and
> obligation to address major challenges, including climate change,
> sustainable development, and disaster risk reduction. The digital revolution
> and the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’, the methods and practices of Open
> Science, and of FAIR data and services, give humanity the tools to do so.
> Embracing these possibilities requires engagement with society, rigorous
> research methods, and good practice in data science and data stewardship.
> The theme *Data to Improve our World* explores the nexus of these issues.
> The high-level themes of IDW 2021 and SciDataCon include:
>    1. Data to Improve our World: The role of data to address global
>    challenges
>    2. The State of Open Science Globally
>    3. Research Transparency, Accountability, and Reproducibility
>    4. Data, Research and Industry: The Interface between Data-intensive
>    Research and Innovation
>    5. Science and Society: Engagement and participation
>    6. Empowering and Enabling Society: Data Science and Stewardship
>    Education and Data Literacy
> Session proposals addressing these themes are *particularly* welcome.
> SciDataCon 2021: Themes
> Also in scope are session proposals addressing any of the below core,
> persistent themes of data and research typically addressed in SciDataCon.
> Further detail and examples of topics are provided at
> https://codata.org/events/conferences/international-data-week-2021/call-for-sessions-scidatacon-2021/
> *Data and Research: *Data issues in relation to major research questions.
> This can include, for example, the availability, findability,
> accessibility, interoperability, and reusability of data in different
> fields of research; the challenges of combining and integrating data; and
> the challenges of effective analysis. The discussion of such data issues
> should relate concretely and directly to specific research questions.
> *Data Science and Data Analysis: *Frontier scientific, technical, and
> epistemological challenges associated with data in research.  Topics
> relating to data science and data analysis in particular research domains,
> or across domains.
> *Data Stewardship: *Advances in sustainable, long-term data stewardship.
> This could include good practice, organisational and institutional aspects,
> and topics related to the FAIR, TRUST, and CARE Principles.
> *Policy and Practice of Data in Research: *Data policies and practices,
> as well as the role of data in scholarly communications. Data policy and
> practices can include their development and harmonization, in addition to
> issues around legal interoperability, rights management and privacy; the
> value and sustainability of research data infrastructure; and data
> publication, metrics, credit, and attribution.
> *Data and Education: *Educational and training responses to the digital revolution.
> This can include mobilizing capacity in areas such as data science and
> data stewardship; addressing needs and gaps in data skills, especially
> for the modern workforce; as well as formal education and curricula
> development to increase data literacy.
> *Data, Society, Ethics, and Politics:* The broader dimensions of data and
> data-driven research in relation to society. This can include any issues
> concerning the social, legal, and ethical dimensions of data and research;
> for example, data sovereignty, the Digital Divide, data openness and
> availability, and digital empowerment.
> *Open Data, Innovation, Industry and Development:* The interactions among
> industry, innovation, and data. This could include collaborations and
> partnerships with the private sector around any of topics already mentioned
> above, and especially concerning data-driven innovation and development.
> Please note 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.
> SciDataCon Sessions
> 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.
> Sessions may be structured around a set of invited speakers and
> presenters, or they may be open sessions on a given theme that then
> requests presentation submissions. *Whether a session is by invitation or
> open to submissions should be clearly stated.*
> Suggested session types:
>    - Research Presentations (state clearly if invited presentations or
>    open to submissions)
>    - Practice Presentations (state clearly if invited presentations or
>    open to submissions)
>    - Mix of Research and Practice Presentations (state clearly if invited
>    presentations or open to submissions)
>    - 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)
> Proposing a SciDataCon Session
> Please take into account the following considerations when preparing your
> proposal for a SciDataCon 2021 session.
>    - Sessions will be 90 minutes in duration.
>    - Session proposals should explicitly address one or more of the
>    conference themes outlined at
>    https://codata.org/events/conferences/international-data-week-2021/call-for-sessions-scidatacon-2021/
>    .
>    - Session proposals should clearly describe the format and ‘type’ of
>    the session: see above and
>    https://codata.org/events/conferences/international-data-week-2021/call-for-sessions-scidatacon-2021/
>     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.
> 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, or state clearly that it is an open session,
>    actively soliciting presentations (i.e., that the purpose of the session
>    proposal is to address an important topic and create a space on the
>    programme to which papers on this topic may be submitted).
>    - Be no shorter than 300 words and no longer than 900 words.
> Next Steps and Timescales
> The deadline for session proposals is *23:59 UTC on 31 March 2021*.
> Selected sessions will be notified *by 1 May 2021*.
> The Call for Sessions will be followed by a general Call for
> Presentations, which will open *on 1 May 2021* with a deadline of *23:59
> UTC on 30 June 2021*.
> The Call for Presentations will invite:
>    1. Presentations specifically for sessions approved from the current
>    call.
>    2. Presentations submitted independent of approved sessions to
>    ‘General Submissions’ (which, if selected, will be organised into thematic
>    sessions by the SciDataCon Programme Committee).
> It is the responsibility of the organisers of an accepted session to
> ensure that invited speakers for the session submit their abstracts by the
> deadline.
> The SciDataCon Programme Committee may allocate paper(s) from the general
> Call for Presentations to a session if appropriate and with the agreement
> of the session organisers.
> Selected presentations will be notified by *31 July 2021,* when we hope
> also to publish an outline programme.
> Summary of Key Dates
> 15 December 2020 Release call for sessions
> 31 March 2021 Deadline for session proposals
> 1 May 2021 Release call for presentations
> 30 June 2021 Deadline for presentations
