Since early 2020, the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been spreading
quickly through over 100 countries around the world, and millions of people 
have been infected as of May 2020. The outbreak of the pandemic has brought 
relentless challenges to human health and it is still raging. To cope with 
the crisis, many countries have taken urgent measures to safeguard the people, 
while researchers in a variety of scientific areas have been engaged in 
finding a solution.

At the invitation of Committee on Data of the International Science Council 
(CODATA) issued in 1987, "The National Committee for CODATA, Academia Sinica, 
Taipei, R. O. C. (NCCODATA/AST)", or CODATA-Taiwan, was established in March
1989 in Academia Sinica. The Committee members include members of major 
scholarly societies in Taiwan. Data Science has been the main research theme 
for COTATA-Taiwan. During these trying times while the pandemic is still severe, 
we hope to bring together academic research capability related to COVID-19 
from both at home and abroad to contribute our share to the global village.

The Symposium consists of four sessions: (1) Overview, (2) SARS-CoV-2, 
(3) Therapy and (4) Impact on the Society. Through live stream, researchers 
and experts as well as frontline medical professionals in different parts 
of the world are invited to share their research data and invaluable insights. 

This event will be conducted in English and consists of both live and virtual
parts. Registration is required, but is open to all, free-of-charge. The entire
conference is accessible on line to those registered, but we encourage those 
residing in Taiwan to attend the event in person. Seats are plentiful but limited,
so we recommend early registration. More information and registration link can 
be found on the meeting website: https://reurl.cc/Y6WZGD
