Polar Data Forum V

October 30 - November 3, 2023
Cambridge, UK

The Polar Data Forum (PDF) is a place where polar data holders get together and make more use of data. The Forum has two main components: the Conference, where the border between funding, policy and data is explored through presentations and posters; and Workshop Sessions & Hackathons, where the Polar Data Community opens the dialogue to make progress on their shared objectives.

Polar Data Forum V (PDF V) will be hosted by the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) from October 30th through November 3rd, 2023 and will be held both at the Aurora Innovation Centre in Cambridge, UK and online. The Forum follows International Data Week (IDW) to be held in Salzburg Austria October 23-26, 2023.

The meeting is co-organized by various polar partners, including the Standing Committee on Antarctic Data Management (SCADM), Sustaining Arctic Observing Networks (SAON), the Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS), and the World Data System, among others.

The focus of PDF V will be on improving large-scale data exchange and interoperability – between organisations and at the international level.

PDF V will consist of a series of workshops and hackathons on October 30th, followed by a 3-day plenary conference to be held 31st October to 2nd November. On 3rd November there will be meetings of the Arctic Data Committee (ADC) and the SCAR Standing Committee on Antarctic Data Management (SCADM)

For more than 100 years AGU has been opening science—opening pathways to discovery, opening greater awareness to address climate change, opening greater collaborations to lead to solutions and opening the fields and professions of science to a whole new age of justice equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging.

This year, as we convene >25,000 attendees from 100+ countries in San Francisco for AGU23, our theme is: Wide. Open. Science. 2023 might be the official year of Open Science but we also see it as an opportunity to affirm AGU’s overarching values and beliefs. It is message for all of us to carry as we come together to share, inspire, collaborate, engage and most of all rededicate ourselves as a united community grounded in wide open science.
