The 2021 CODATA General Assembly will take place on 12-13 November following International Data Week. Like International Data Week, the General Assembly is likely to be held in a hybrid, online and virtual, format. A final decision on the precise format and programme will be made in due course.
The two most important governance activities of the General Assembly are to elect the CODATA Officers and Executive Committee and to select and approve new and continuing Task Groups. The Call for Nominations for two Officer positions (Secretary General and Treasurer) and ten places on the Executive Committee will be released no later than 12 May. The deadline for nominations, by CODATA members, is 12 July. Similarly, the Call for Proposals for new or continuing Task Groups, will be released no later than 12 May, with the same deadline of 12 July.
