Dear Yarime,

Thank you very much for circulating this.  It is a very important and interesting topic.  The times are challenging for those outside the Pacific Rim, but I hope colleagues will attend and the recordings will be available.  

I think this would be an interesting topic for the CODATA International Data Policy Committee, and I wonder how that group might engage?

With very best wishes,
