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. The focus of PDF IV will be on the polar oceans, enabling the Forum to be aligned with the launch of the UN Decade of Ocean Science and the 2nd Southern Ocean Regional Workshop which will be co-organised during the same week as PDF IV.
PDF IV will consist of a series of workshops and hackathons to build on the development work done during previous meetings, followed by a 2-day plenary conference in support of information exchange.
Full details are on the PDF IV website.
