(12 Apr 2022) International Data Week 2022, hosted by the Republic of Korea, is now accepting onsite registration. Those wishing to attend will need first to create an account on IDW2022.org. Once an account is made, you can continue to register to attend in person or virtually. If you have already registered to attend virtually, but now would like to attend in person, you can now upgrade that initial registration, by logging in to your previously created account at idw2022.org.
Please note that the early bird fees are available until 20 May. Requests for cancellation will need to be made no later than 7 days prior to the conference to receive a full refund. Cancellations must be submitted in writing and sent via email to [email protected]
Travel restrictions were recently modified by the Korean Government and now allow fully vaccinated attendees to visit with no mandatory quarantine period. Quarantine exemption will be available for those who have completed their third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine or received two doses (one dose for Janssen) at least 14 days prior but within 180 days.
About IDW 2022:
The International Data Week 2021 has been postponed to 20-23 June 2022 for the main conference. Associated events will take place in the period 18-26 June 2022. The conference will be a hybrid format with in-person in Seoul, South Korea as well as virtual participation. IDW 2022 will be hosted by the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI), committed by the Ministry of Science and ICT, Seoul Metropolitan Government, National Library of Korea, and National Assembly Library, with the support of the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science (KRISS), Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU), Korea Institute of Oriental Medicine and the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources.
This landmark event will bring together data scientists, researchers, industry leaders, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and data stewards from disciplines across the globe to explore how best to exploit the data revolution to improve science and society through data-driven discovery and innovation. IDW 2022 combines the 18th RDA Plenary Meeting, the biannual meeting of this international member organization working to develop and support global infrastructure facilitating data sharing and reuse, and SciDataCon 2021, the scientific conference addressing the frontiers of data in research organized by CODATA and WDS.
