The opening of research data is – next to the open publishing of scientific
papers – a central aspect of Open Science. Research data is recognized as
one of the key outputs of the scientific process.* Properly managed data is
a valuable resource for scientists, who can then freely use, re-use and
combine it.* Open data benefit the society as a whole, enabling novel forms
of scientific inquiry and non-scientific data usage, facilitating
engagement in citizen science, and accelerating economical development.

​The conference will take place in Warsaw, Poland, on May 28–29, 2015. It
is organized by the Open Science Platform — an initiative of the
Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling at
the University of Warsaw.
