ICSU-WDS Co-sponsors CODATA Big Data Workshop

To further our close collaboration, the World Data System  is co-sponsoring a Workshop organized by our sister organization under the ICSU umbrella, the Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA). Held on 08–09 June 2014 in Beijing, China—and with the theme 'Big Data for International Scientific Programmes: Challenges and Opportunities'—the Workshop is designed to provide a better understanding of what ‘Big Data’ means for major collaborative scientific projects, including for ICSU-sponsored programmes such as Future Earth and Integrated Research on Disaster Risk, as well as other international initiatives.
