*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’
<http://www.codata.org/strategic-initiatives/decadal-programme> and to the
developments of GO FAIR community towards the Internet of FAIR data and
services <https://www.go-fair.org/go-fair-initiative>.

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.


On behalf of Dr. Simon Hodson, Executive Director, CODATA
