be approved by the* *32nd CODATA General Assembly*
<https://codata.org/events/general-assembly/general-assembly-2021/> which
will be held on 12-13 November 2021, following International Data Week 2021
<https://www.internationaldataweek.org/>, convened by CODATA, the Research
Data Alliance and the World Data System on 8-11 November 2021. Like IDW
2021, the General Assembly will be held in a hybrid format, with both
virtual and in-person participation in Seoul, Korea.

The final *deadline for submissions of Task Group Proposals is 12 July 2021*.
Proposals will be reviewed by the CODATA Executive Committee and by
external experts. Recommendations will be presented to the CODATA General
Assembly which will vote on and select the Task Groups.

Task Groups are approved by the General Assembly for two years. Existing
CODATA Task Groups may apply for renewal and are subject to the same
criteria, as described in the Call for Task Groups document
(also attached).

Decadal Programme Themes and Priority Activities

Pilot activities for the CODATA Decadal Programme ‘Making Data Work for
Cross-Domain Grand Challenges’
<https://codata.org/initiatives/strategic-programme/decadal-programme/> are
now underway and the Programme will be officially launched at the ISC
Virtual General Assembly in October 2021. The overall aim of the CODATA
Decadal Programme is to enable an ecosystem for FAIR data for cross domain
research to be developed and implemented.  To do so, the Decadal Programme
addresses three broad themes.  *Proposals should state clearly and
specifically how the Task Group activities will contribute to the
realisation of one or more of these objectives.*

*Theme 1: Enabling Technologies and Good Practice for Data-Intensive
Science: *Desired activities should aim to identify, define, develop or
validate enabling technologies and good practices for data-intensive
science that is applicable across disciplines.

*Theme 2: Mobilising Domains and Breaking Down Silos:* Desired activities
should promote and progress interoperability of data and related services
within and across the disciplines of science.

*Theme 3: Advancing Interoperability Through Cross-Domain Case Studies:*
Desired activities would seek to develop and apply solutions for
interoperability and reuse of data in cross domain case studies and all
areas of research which rely on combining data from disparate, and often
heterogeneous sources.

The call suggests some high priority topics under each of these three
themes (see the call document for further details). Task Group proposals
addressing these or similar issues are particularly encouraged.  *This does
not mean that Task Group proposals addressing areas not described above
will be considered out of scope: we invite and encourage innovative ideas
from the CODATA community.*

Submission Procedure and Deadlines

Applications should be made by filling out the *form available at CODATA
website *
completely as possible by the deadline of *12 July 2021*. This form is the
principal information source used for evaluating the proposals.

Proposers are encouraged to download a template to pre-fill
<http://bit.ly/TGMembership> proposed membership of the Task Group for easy
upload to the above linked web form when submitting the proposal. We also
attach the template as .xlsx for convenience.

*For existing CODATA Task Groups that are applying for renewal, there is an
additional section required, in which the Task Group should report on its
activities, outputs and outcomes to date.*

Proposers are encouraged to liaise with Simon Hodson, CODATA Executive
Director simon at codata.org as early as possible in the process for guidance,
advice and to ensure criteria are met as far as possible.

Best wishes,


on behalf of the CODATA Secretariat
