Convened by the Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA)—and co-sponsored by ICSU-WDS and a number of other important international organizations—the International Workshop on Big Data for International Scientific Programmes took place on 8–9 June 2014 in Beijing, China.

This Workshop aimed at shedding light on the potential role of Big Data in international and interdisciplinary research activities, and as a first, practical step towards focusing attention on this, the Workshop participants and sponsoring organizations have agreed on a Statement of Recommendations and Actions.
