International Symposium “Global Collaboration on Data beyond
Disciplines”, 23-25 September 2020, Online Conference

Conference web-site:

Background and Scope :
 The Joint Support-Center for Data Science Research (DS) of the
Research Organization of Information and Systems (ROIS) and the
Committee of International Collaborations on Data Science of the
Science Council of Japan (SCJ) are organizing a symposium to share
information on current international research data activities
addressing Open Science, data-centric science, and interdisciplinary
data-driven science. A key step in making science open lies in
improving data quality and transparency so that researchers can easily
share their work, and this necessitates a robust and global-scale
infrastructure. The symposium will be a remarkable opportunity to
discuss the future development of such data-oriented infrastructure in
the Open Science era, and thus ensure the long-term preservation and
equitable provision of quality-assessed research data. The World Data
System (WDS) of the International Science Council (ISC) and its
partner organization Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) are
leading global initiatives that can galvanize the community to find
solutions to these data-related issues, and at the same time work with
the community to improve data discoverability and interoperability for
effective data reuse.

Session Themes:
- Opening Session:Opening Addresses, Keynote Talks, 10 Years Event of
the International Programme Office of the World Data System (WDS-IPO).
- WDS Forum 2020:The initial idea of this evening session is to share
information on current activities of WDS among WDS Members and general
participants having interest in the endeavor of WDS. This part will be
led by the Scientific Committee (SC), International Programme Office (IPO)
and International Technical Office (ITO) of WDS.
- Regional Activities on Data in the Asia & Oceania Area:Sharing
information on data-oriented collaborations on data in the
Asia-Oceania area, e.g. plans of collaborating platforms have been
going on in Australia and Malaysia and discussions in the series of
WDS Asia and Oceania Conferences, etc. Principal Organizers are WDS
and Regional Office of Asia and Pacific (ROAP).
- WDS-ORCID Strategic Workshop: Discussions on future
collaborations between WDS and ORCID. The workshop format might
include ‘breakout rooms’ and group discussions to make the online
session more interesting, with WDS and ORCID both chairing these.
- Sharing of the COVID-19 Data:Sharing information on data involving
COVID-19 pandemics for all related branches of disciplines, including
social, genome and biological aspects. As this session focuses on
international interest involving the pandemics, all related topics on
COVID-19 data issues are welcome.
- Forum of Early Career Data Scientists in the Asia & Oceania Area:A
forum of young-generation data scientists in the Asia-Oceania area to
identify current problems and future plans. This part will be led by
the WDS ECR Network.
- Promotion of Multi-Disciplinary Data Analysis:Presentations on
research projects based on multi-, and/or inter- disciplinary data use
and data-led innovation of technology. Themes of space-weather data
analyses are also included.
