Scope of Workshop :

The Workshop will focus on recent topics of interest in the field of scientific data, which are attributed to play a crucial role in global trend on accelerating "Open Science" and "Open Data". Contributions from all scientific disciplines are welcome, including life and bio science, social and human science, as well as polar science. Inter-disciplinary orientated topics on data management are especially encouraged.

Presentations will be given that span the entire range of topics of effective scientific data management by individual data center; from management planning and policy, to submission of metadata and actual data, to share the data so as to facilitate new inter-disciplinary science, to long-term preservation and stewardship with global and social perspectives.
Topics on data citation, data publication and data journal are strongly encouraged in terms of "Open Science" for the retrieved and archived data. Contributors will report on successes and challenges recently encountered, best practices learned, and what must yet be done to ensure the past data legacy. Fruitful discussions on data publication issues between multi-branch of science are expected to give a new horizon on data management and to achieve inter-disciplinary linkages.

By this Workshop, it is expected that mutual understanding on data activities in different fields of science could be obtained, and future activities are progressed, such as a promotion of new inter-disciplinary sciences and new research collaboration using multi-disciplinary data, as well as a contribution to global data activities based on facilities provided by the Joint Support-Center for Data Science Research of ROIS.
