The theme of this year's conference is Embracing the ‘data revolution’: opportunities and challenges for research. We are in the midst of a ‘data revolution’. The evolving landscape of data, including the growth of digital ‘big data’, open data, and open science, presents opportunities and challenges for social science, digital humanities, and related disciplines. What does this mean for researchers? What impact is there on data infrastructures, technology, standards, best practices, tools, services and training? What are the current research needs and trends?
