One of the most important issues facing science today is the organization, preservation, and access of scientific data. This need is not new, but with the constant acceleration of technology, combined with the need to maintain publicly-funded research results freely available and accessible, the how to do this is more important than ever. Hence, Open Research Data and Open Science are increasingly becoming hot topics in international academy/science policy fields as found in events of establishment of ICSU-WDS (2008), G8 Open Data Charter (2013), deployment of Research Data Alliance (2013), OECD Global Science Forum's research projects (2016), G7 Science Ministers' Communique on Open Science (2016), and so forth.

Open Science also envisions a change of styles of how science is conducted. Digitally connected data infrastructures over the globe may enable all researchers to accelerate research process, for example, by accessing any scientific papers, and datasets used in past studies (and also new datasets too sometimes), working with international colleagues using computing and storage facilities shared with each other. Such a dream (or a nightmare?) are, if we focus on datasets, based on datasets in interoperable format with interoperable metadata, with digital identifiers (e.g., DOI), with appropriate licensing.

Another key element of Open Science is new information tools and data infrastructures. Now in Europe, Japan, Australia, and in the United States, various enterprises are emerging aiming at improving the data availability in various disciplines including Solar (Virtual Solar Observatory), Earth (IUGONET, SPASE) and Planetary Sciences (NASA-PDS4, GIS technologies, Europlanet/VESPA...).

Jointly organized between JpGU and AGU this session will covers subjects discussed above, and also a wide range of relevant topics of Open Science policy, experiments, development of infrastructures and systems, and so on.
