Please note that, as of the end of 2008 following the ICSU General Assembly in Maputo, Mozambique, the Panel on World Data Centers no longer exists and that the World Data Centers will be incorporated into the new ICSU World Data System (WDS) in 2009. A similar procedure will involve members of the Federation of Astronomical and Geophysical data-analysis Services (FAGS) grouping of ICSU. In addition, it is envisaged that additional (i.e. non-FAGS and non-WDC) organizations will be encouraged to join the new WDS. When the WDS has its own web site, this WDC web site will be discontinued. At the time of writing, a Transition Team composed of former WDC Panel and FAGS Council members is discussing how best to organize the transition arrangements to the new WDS without interruptions in the services provided by existing organizations.
