Dear SEEDIG community members, 

Following up on the two online planning meetings held earlier this week,
we would like to inform you about one change in the planning process for
the 5th SEEDIG meeting (SEEDIG 5): REPLACING THE INDIVIDUAL SESSION
ORGANISING TEAMS WITH A PROGRAMME COMMITTEE. 

This change was brought up a few weeks ago as a proposal on this mailing
list and was later discussed during the planning meetings. The views
were diverse, but there was considerable support (expressed by community
members, SEEDIG supporting organisations attending the meetings, and the
Executive Committee) for giving it a try with a programme committee,
given the challenges experienced with organising teams over the past few
years. An overview of these discussions can be found in the attached
summary report of the planning meetings, which we invite you to read. 

In line with these discussions, a programme committee (PC) will be set
up to assist the Executive Committee in shaping the programme for SEEDIG
5. It is expected that the PC will enable a more streamlined and
effective planning process as well as bring more cohesion and
consistency to the overall SEEDIG meeting programme. 

Concerning the next steps, the Executive Committee will continue to work
on a draft programme for SEEDIG 5, which should be published for public
comment by early January. A call for volunteers to form the PC will also
be launched in January, and more details about the responsibilities and
work of this committee will be shared then as well. Meanwhile, we would
like to clarify that the overall SEEDIG community will continue to be
involved in the planning process and provide input to the PC and the
Executive Committee during their work. 

Finally, we thank you for the valuable comments provided before and
during the planning meetings. And we look forward to continuing our
collaborative work. 

Best regards, 

Sorina 

(on behalf of the SEEDIG Executive Committee)
