International FAIR Convergence Symposium

International FAIR Convergence Symposium convened by CODATA and GO FAIR: change of format and dates

The International FAIR Convergence Symposium will now take place as a fully virtual event from 27 November to 4 December. 

    The International FAIR Convergence Symposium is convened by the Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA; WDS Associate Member) and GO FAIR. It 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 or the COVID-19 pandemic. Outcomes will directly link to the CODATA Decadal Programme ‘Data for the Planet: making data work for cross-domain grand challenges’ and to the bottom-up developments of the GO FAIR community towards the Internet of FAIR data and services.

    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.

    We would like to bring special attention to the following parallel session at 11:00–13:00 UTC on 2 December, organized by the CODATA–WDS Task Group on Citizen Science for the SDGs:
