Task Group Proposals 2021
Task Group Proposals 2021
Form to submit TG Proposals in preparation for the 2021 General Assembly. Proposals will be reviewed by the CODATA Executive Committee and by external experts. Recommendations will be presented to the CODATA General Assembly which will vote on and select the Task Groups on 12-13 November 2021.
Are you seeking renewal of an existing Task Group or proposing a new one?

Short summary of objective(s) of the Proposed Task Group
All Principal Proposers, Proposed TG Members and Suggested Referees agreed that their data is submitted to CODATA and processed for the purpose of the 2021 Task Group selection.
Note that in line with Data Privacy regulations a consent from all Principal Proposers, Proposed Task Group Members as well as Referees needs to be secured prior to filling in the his form. The proposal can't be accepted by CODATA unless this has been fulfilled and confirmed by the submitter.

Scientific merit of the proposed work and how does it contribute to CODATA’s mission and objectives as laid out in the Decadal Programme.
Uploaded file should address the following questions: What is the issue that the TG will address? Why is this significant and important? What are the outputs that the TG will produce (tangible things the TG has done or published)? What will the outcomes of this activity be (i.e. what is the impact and effect of these activities and how precisely will this advance the CODATA strategy, what will change as a result of the TGs work)? PAGE LIMIT: Up to 3 pages.
Summary of outputs to be completed by the 2023 General Assembly.
Provide details of planned outputs: Articles in the CODATA Data Science Journal https://www.codata.org/dsj or other refereed Journals. Reports, white papers, other publications, technical proposals etc. Data products, web resources, software tools etc. Conferences, workshops, meetings and associated reports. Other products or accomplishments.
Organization and schedule of proposed Task Group activities
This should cover key milestones leading to deliverables, meetings/workshops, teleconferences, the organization of any subgroups etc. Be sure to specify due date for each proposed activity/output, who is responsible and who would participate.

Budget Request from CODATA International
CODATA designates part of its budget for Task Groups and at the discretion of the Executive Committee provides a small amount of seed funding: historically this has ranged between 1K and 10K euros per year. In recent years, allocations of 4-8K euros per year have been most common. Such funding must be used to achieve tangible TG outputs. For example, directly supporting the drafting, publication or testing of TG outputs, convening a workshop or similar is within scope; speculative attendance at a conference is not. Indicate financial request from CODATA International and justification, costings.
Financial support from sources other than CODATA International (indicate if committed or expected)
Grants, contracts, travel expense support, etc. In kind support (equivalent salaried effort, infrastructure)
Other organizations or programs sponsoring or participating in the Task Group and their expected role(s)
Summary of outputs and outcomes since the 2018 General Assembly
Highlight outputs (e.g. publications, particularly those in the CODATA Data Science Journal, reports, white papers, workshops etc and tangible activities such as meetings, workshops etc). In this report, Task Groups should also describe the broader impact and outcomes achieved and how the TG has contributed to the CODATA Strategy (i.e. what has been the effect of what you have done, what has changed?).
