The 2nd FAIR Convergence Symposium
<https://codata.org/events/conferences/fair-convergence-symposium-2022/> is
organised by CODATA and GO FAIR on 24 – 26 October 2022 in Leiden, The
Netherlands, as part of the Week Focused on FAIR

This years’ edition will concentrate on smaller, high-priority, strategic
and working meetings to encourage convergence on and implementation of
FAIR. The meetings are being organised as hybrid events, allowing for both
in-person and online participation.

An initial *overview of the FAIR Convergence Symposium programme* is
available at:

Please note that the programme is subject to change. We encourage
colleagues to check that page for new iterations.

Most of the Symposium events are marked as Open sessions. To attend these
events a registration should be completed at:

Registration for in-person participation closes on 14 October, 12:00 (pm)
CEST. The seats are limited, thus we encourage early registration.

Registration for virtual participation will remain open till 21 October,
12:00 (pm) CEST or until the virtual participation capacity is reached.

All sessions will  be recorded and the recordings will be made available
via CODATA Vimeo shortly after the event. Unless you plan to join the
session virtually, please kindly leave the ‘seat’ to another colleague.

While detailed descriptions and announcements of the individual workshops
and sessions will be published in the coming days, these events may be
worthwhile highlighting.

*CODATA International Data Policy Committee (IDPC) Workshop: Mon 24
October, 13:00 – 16:30 CEST*

*The role of data policy in times of crisis*

*Data policy is required for ensuring smooth interdisciplinary
collaboration in disaster or disruptive situations that threaten lives and
the public wellbeing. This workshop will explore the important role of data
policy in relation to crisis situations and the importance of developing
proactive data policy to generate effective, evidence-based understandings
that can provide for responses and solutions to complex global challenges.
Through a series of expert presentations and discussions, we aim to provide
the groundwork for a multi-disciplinary approach to developing data policy
for crisis situations.*

*WorldFAIR Workshop: Tue 25 October, 12:00 – 15:30 CEST*

*FAIR Implementation Profiles in WorldFAIR: what have we learnt?*

*The WorldFAIR project is exploring FAIR Implementation Profiles (FIPs)
with 11 domain and cross-domain case studies.  In this workshop we will
reflect on the experience and explore our findings. What have we learnt
from the process? Has using FIPs helped us describe practices around FAIR
in the case studies? Has it helped identify any gaps or areas which would
benefit from further attention? Will the outcomes of the FIPs assist the
project in the development of a Cross-Domain Interoperability Framework and
recommendations for more domain-sensitive FAIR assessment? Has the process
identified ways in which the FIPs methodology and the tools around it can
be improved?*

*FAIRConnect Demo & Discussion: Tue 25 October, 16:00 – 18:00 CEST*

*FAIR Connect is a new initiative, an Open Access publishing platform for
the development and dissemination of good practices for professional
FAIR-Data stewardship. A collaboration platform for professional,
practising data stewards, where authoritative descriptions of FAIR Enabling
Resources (FERs) like FAIR Implementation Profiles (FIPs), metadata schema,
vocabularies and ontologies, and data stewardship plan templates, can be
published, described, peer-reviewed, and made reusable. Demonstration of
the channel  is planned as part of the FAIR Convergence Symposium, followed
by a discussion with the attendees of this session. *

*The publishing platform will be hosted by IOS Press, and is being
developed and launched in partnership with the GO FAIR Foundation. The peer
review will be conducted by community members under the auspices of GO FAIR
and potentially also CODATA.*

*ENVRI-FAIR Session: Wed 26 October, 09:00 – 11:00 CEST*

*Catalysing Convergence in ENVRI-FAIR using FIPs*

*In 2019, as part of its FAIR assessment activity, ENVRI-FAIR collaborated
with GO FAIR to develop the FAIR Implementation Profile (FIP) approach to
technology landscaping and FAIRness level improvement of data and services.
Since 2019, the FIP approach has been used for ENVRI FAIR assessments
annually. This session will explore the limitations and opportunities of
the FIP approach, focusing on its importance in the promotion of FAIR
awareness and as a decision support service for the community. We will
describe how the FAIR assessment exercises have impacted the ENVRI
implementation plans and how this can lead to practical FAIR convergence.
Lastly, the potential role of the FIP in FAIR Digital Objects (FDOs) will
be explored, first as metadata for the FDO, and then as a catalyst for
driving convergence on the use of FDOs by existing infrastructures.*

The FAIR Convergence Symposium will also feature a number of ‘Wheel
Meetings’. These are interactive workshops in which a FAIR Enabling
Resource (FER) is presented and discussed. The name comes from the idea
that the FERs under discussion *may* be Wheels that don’t need to be
reinvented. The topics to be addressed during the FAIR Convergence
Symposium will be announced shortly and registration for these events
opened at that point.
