International FAIR Convergence Symposium & CODATA General Assembly

Save the Date!

Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA; WDS Associate Member) and GO FAIR will convene the International FAIR Convergence Symposium on 22–23 October 2020 in Paris, France, followed by the CODATA General Assembly on 24 October 2020. 

The International FAIR Convergence Symposium will provide a forum for advancing international and cross-domain convergence around FAIR. The event will bring together a global data community with an interest in combining data across domains for a host of research issues including major global challenges, such as those relating to the Sustainable Development Goals. Outcomes will directly link to the CODATA Decadal Programme 'Data for the Planet: making data work for cross-domain grand challenges' and to the developments of GO FAIR community towards the Internet of FAIR data and services.

Participation is open to all researchers and data experts, particularly those with an interest in participating in the CODATA Decadal Programme and in the GO FAIR Community. There will be a mechanism for participants to organize workshop sessions: for example, GO FAIR Implementation Networks, CODATA Target Groups and other groups are encouraged to participate and to organize sessions.

The two-day Symposium will be followed on 24 October by the CODATA General Assembly which will see the election of new Officers, Executive Committee and Task Groups.
