The Data for Policy conference series is the premier global forum for multiple disciplinary and cross-sector discussions around the theories, applications and implications of data science innovation in governance and the public sector. Its associated journal, Data & Policy, published by Cambridge University Press has quickly established itself as a major venue for publishing research in the field of data-policy interactions. Both the conference and the journal receive valuable support from their sustainer partners: the Alan Turing Institute, the Office for National Statistics and UCL.
 
Convening for the sixth time in September 2021, the International Organisation Committee for the conference invites Paper and Panel Session proposals at the conference to be also considered for potential post-conference publications in Data & Policy (subject to peer-review). We are planning for a physical conference and we hope that presenters will be able to join us in person. We understand that this may be difficult, or even impossible, and we will adapt the conference proceedings accordingly to accommodate virtual presentations where this is necessary.
 
There are six broad, interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral areas of interest, which form the standard tracks of the conference. Following the momentous events of 2020, the International Committee and organisers wish to recognise the additional focus on data throughout the whole of society as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the opportunities this creates for learning about and developing data and policy interactions. This focus should not be seen as limiting, and we welcome submissions across domains, sectors and applications. In addition to the standard tracks, nine Special Tracks have also been shortlisted this year (Special Track 9 added to the original eight on 1st Feb).
