Title: Committee on Data for Science and Technology of the International Council for Science


1
Committee on Data for Science and Technologyof
theInternational Council for Science
CODATA
  • http//www.codata.org
  • Join our international mailing list at
    http//www.codata.org/instr.html

2
Who are we?
  • CODATA, the Committee on Data for Science and
  • Technology was established in 1966 by ICSU,
    the
  • International Council for Science.
  • Working on an interdisciplinary and
    international basis,
  • CODATA seeks to improve the quality,
    reliability,
  • processing, management and accessibility of
    data of
  • importance to science and technology.

3
What are our objectives?
  • The improvement of the quality and accessibility
    of data, as well as the methods by which data are
    acquired, managed, analysed and evaluated and
    made available and manageable for everyone in an
    appropriate way.
  • The facilitation of international co-operation
    among those collecting, organising and using data
  • The promotion of an increased awareness in the
    scientific and technical community of the
    importance of these activities
  • The consideration of data access and intellectual
    property issues

4
How do we achieve our objectives?
  • Task Groups
  • National Member Activities
  • International Conferences
  • Electronic Journal
  • Publications
  • Workshops
  • Studies and Reports
  • Co-operation and liaison with other Interest
    Groups

5
Task Groups
  • Data Information and Visualisation
  • Virtual Laboratories in Earth, Physical and
    Environmental Sciences
  • Data on Natural Gas Hydrates
  • Data Sources in Asian-Oceanic Countries
  • Fundamental Constants
  • Global Species Data Network
  • Biological Collection Data Access
  • Preservation and Archiving of Scientific and
    Technical Data in Developing Countries

6
Global Species Data Network
  • The names of organisms are the key to
    biodiversity communications and as such, provide
    access to the accumulated knowledge of all life
    on earth.
  • However, despite the obvious value of a
    catalogue, no comprehensive indexing system yet
    exists.
  • This lack of a widely accessible index, with
    in-built mechanisms for maintenance and updating,
    is a significant constraint on all nations
    wishing to fulfil their obligations under the
    Convention on Biological Diversity.
  • The goal of the CODATA Task Group on Global
    Species Data Networks is to provide a uniform and
    validated quality index of names of all known
    species for use as a practical tool.

7
Preservation and Archiving of Scientific and
Technical Data in Developing Countries
  • The Task Group on Preservation and Archiving of
    Scientific and Technological Data in Developing
    Countries aims to
  • promote a deeper understanding of the needs of
    developing countries with regard to long-term
    preservation, archiving and access to scientific
    and technological (ST) data, and
  • advance the development and adoption of improved
    archiving procedures, technologies, standards and
    policies.
  • Furthermore provide an interdisciplinary forum
    and mechanisms for exchanging information about
    ST data archiving requirements and activities
    with particular focus on the concerns and needs
    of developing countries.

8
Data Science Journal
  • Free, online peer-reviewed journal
  • Focused on the management of data and databases
    in Science and Technology, including
  • descriptions of data systems
  • publication on the internet
  • applications
  • legal issues
  • Editor-in-Chief Professor FJ Smith, Queen's
    University, Belfast, Ireland
  • Papers submitted via e-mail to codata_at_qub.ac.uk

International Conference
  • CODATA holds biennial international conferences
    on the latest advances in scientific and
    technical data issues. They attract approximately
    250 participants from all over the world and from
    all scientific disciplines.

13
Recent CODATA Accomplishments
  • Prominent editorial in Science authored by ICSU
    President Jane Lubchenco and CODATA President
    Shuichi Iwata (September 2003)
  • Emphasizes open access to scientific knowledge in
    the contest of WSIS

14
Science in the Information Society
  • Set of 4 brochures in 3 languages on
  • Universal access to scientific knowledge
  • Decision making governance
  • Policy issues for scientific information
  • Improving education training

15
Collaborative Workshops

16
Potential CODATA Roles in Latin America
  • Facilitate cross-disciplinary discussion and
    collaboration on science data issues (technical,
    scientific, and institutional)
  • Facilitate intra- and inter-regional interactions
    (bilateral and multilateral) on science data
    issues
  • Blend scientific, legal, and policy views on and
    approaches to data management
  • Work directly with governmental,
    intergovernmental, and nongovernmental
    organizations on data policy issues
  • Provide credibility and support to local,
    national, and regional efforts to address science
    data issues
  • Provide specific mechanisms for outreach,
    exchange, consensus development (e.g., workshops,
    e-journal, editorials, newsletter, discussion
    lists, task groups, pilots)
