Announcement for the FAIR Convergence Symposium in October 2020

International FAIR Convergence Symposium and CODATA General Assembly, 22-24 October 2020

Please save the date for the International FAIR Convergence Symposium convened by CODATA and GO FAIR on October 22-23 2020; followed by the CODATA General Assembly, 24 October 2020.?

Where: Paris, France

Venue: TBC

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 organise workshop sessions: for example, GO FAIR INs, CODATA TGs and other groups are encouraged to participate and to organise 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.

More information about the event and means of participation will follow in due course.??

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Paris.?
