Membership StrategyStatute 3.1 – MembershipModify: 3.1 CODATA shall be composed of seven kinds of members:

Add

:f) Affiliate Member. An Affiliate Member shall be an international organization, an academic institution, or a research institution having an interest in data science and a desire to work with CODATA in support of CODATA’s mission. Affiliate Members shall pay annual dues and receive benefits as determined and updated periodically by the Executive Committee.

Activities with other organizationsThe Secretary General gave a summary to delegates on various CODATA activities that took place since the 27th CODATA General Assembly in collaboration with other partner organizations in particular its work with:

ICSU/OECD on

NanomaterialsGroup on Earth Observations in particular with the Data Sharing Task ForceThe ICSU World Data SystemIntegrated Research on Disaster RiskInternational Society for Digital EarthICSU Committee on Freedom and Responsibility in ScienceDetails of these activities and others can be found in the presentation in Annex Eight.The Delegates emphasized the importance of reaching out to new partners and developing new activities. Concerning interaction with ICSU- and in particular Future Earth- the new 10 year programme on integrated earth system research for global sustainability established by ICSU, ISSC, the Belmont Forum, UNEP, UNESCO, UNU and WMO as observer http://www.icsu.org/future-earth a brief discussion took place on CODATA’s involvement in the initiative as it evolves. This was strongly encouraged. CODATA and WDS have an important role to play in addressing the data challenges that will inevitably arise as the initiative develops. Hard lesson can be learned from the IPY experience in this area.Slide6

CODATA Strategic PlanThe Secretary General of CODATA gave a detailed presentation of proposed Strategic Plan 2013-3018, including a review of the 2006-2012 Plan. (Annex Nine for details). The plan was well received by delegates and some discussions centered on the importance of strengthening collaboration with the ICSU WDS as both organizations evolved. Reference was made to the SCCID recommendations in this regard.

Moving forward the following resolution was adopted:

“The 28th CODATA General Assembly sincerely thanks Dr. Robert Chen and the Strategic Planning Committee for its work on the Draft Strategic Plan 2013-2018 as presented to the delegates. The delegates approve the draft document subject to the Strategic Planning Committee updating the Plan to reflect the discussions at the Assembly and submit same to the 58th Executive Committee for final ratification. It further directs the Executive Committee to put in place the relevant mechanisms necessary for implementation”Slide7

Data Science JournalThe 28th CODATA General Assembly thanks Prof. Gojobori for the report of the Journal Working Group and the presentation of alternative options for the Data Science Journal (DSJ) developed in consultation with Prof. Iwata. The General Assembly also sincerely thanks Prof. Iwata and the Japanese National Committee for CODATA for their continued support of the DSJ and willingness to explore new ways to achieve CODATA's goals with regard to the journal.

The 28

th CODATA General Assembly is especially excited about the potential for enhancing the visibility and stature of the DSJ by partnering with a major publisher such as Nature Publishing Group, Wiley-Blackwell, or the Public Library of Science (PLOS). The General Assembly asks the Executive Committee to work with the Journal Working Group* to define basic and desired criteria for such a partnership and then initiate more direct discussions with interested publishers, bearing in mind the need for flexibility in financial models for readers and authors. The Executive Committee is authorized to determine how the Journal will be published for the next four years.* Takashi Gojobori, Shuichi Iwata, Robert Chen, Mark Thorley and Sara GravesSlide11

Future Earth: Global Earth Change Community WorkshopCODATA and WDS participated in November at the Future Earth: Global Earth Change Community Workshop held in UNESCO in Paris. We Co-Chaired a Data Management Break-out Session within the workshop. This discussed data management requirements and challenges of Future Earth. A report on the Session was presented to

plenary:

http://www.icsu.org/future-earth/whats-new/events/gec-project-workshop. CODATA and WDS are now discussing submitting a nomination  for the Future Earth Scientific Committee as follow up to the Call for Nominations circulated by  ICSU regarding same. We also had a number of informal meetings with ICSU regarding data issues within the initiative as it evolves.Slide12

Application to ICSUCODATA in December submitted a grant application to ICSU under its Grants Program 2013. If successful this will build on the Nano Material activities commenced last year and discussed in Taipei. It will focus on The Description of Materials on the Nanoscale

.

This activity is taking place in collaboration with many of the ICSU Scientific Unions. The Core Team of the CODATA/VAMAS Working group, who are leading this project, is scheduled to meet at CODATA Headquarters in May 2013.Slide13

FutureNanoNeedsCODATA is currently working with the Centre For BioNano Interactions (CBNI) School of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, University College Dublin- the lead organization- on a European funding application

focussed

on FutureNanoNeeds  (Note CODATA is but one of many partners in this consortium). We are now in phase 2 of the proposal process. Will keep you posted on how this evolves.Slide14
