The CODATA 2019 Conference will be held from 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 from 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 Data'.


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.
