INSPIRE Hack

Dear all,
Plan4all will again organize INSPIRE Hack. This is Hackathon focused more on professionals, than students and this group. See the concept http://ijsdir.jrc.ec.europa.eu/index.php/ijsdir/article/download/481/429.
This is the third year of the INSPIRE Hackathon. The workshop aims to present the hackathon results and award the best projects. The hack will start before the conference already in July 2018. The hackathon itself and the team work will be done remotely.

Agricultural Data & Information Technologies: SciDataCon opportunity

Hello all,
Hopefully relevant and useful for IGAD members and colleagues, I'd like to
warmly invite participation in a New and Emerging Technologies in
Agriculture session at SciDataCon - during International Data Week
alongside RDA P12. We are seeking contributions *from those engaged in
research or projects using agricultural data and information technologies
(e.g. ICTs, semantic technologies, FIMS, drones, etc.) to collect, link,
and distribute agricultural data and information.*Session summary below.

Hi Valeria,
Thanks so much that's really helpful! I'm not anyone who could/should be
contributing but rather on the tech-user end - definitely interested in
using the output of semantically interlinked URIs. Is there an estimated
timeline on that effort and/or somewhere public we could follow progress or
even I guess your output would be announced on this list hopefully?
Context for my question was a recent small gathering of people in the USA
interested in open tech for Ag had a sub-group looking to apply

Re: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig] Publication and alignment of authoritative vocabularies for...

If you are interested in that particular GODAN group, I suggest
contacting Ruthie Musker at GODAN (cc'd) and/or Matthew Lange at UC
Davis (cc'd) who runs IC-FOODS (https://www.ic-foods.org/)---getting on
the email list via the GODAN website is...elusive...at best at this
point.
As far as publications go, a list of GODAN reports are available here:

Publication and alignment of authoritative vocabularies for food - Working Group?

Is anyone here involved in this GODAN project?
http://godan.info/working-groups/publication-and-alignment-authoritative...
Looks like it began Nov 2017 so probably too early to see any
recommendations/publications but I was wondering if there were any public
mailing lists/repos perhaps?

RDA VSSIG Ontology Metadata Task Group Survey

Dear RDA WGs,
I transfer this to this 3 groups that I know and sometimes participate in, but feel free to transfer this to other metadata/standardization/ontologies related WGs.
Thanks
-------------------
Dear all,
[Apologies for multiple receptions - this announcement has been sent to multiple mailing lists of the ontology/semantic Web/linked data/standardization communities.]
If you are somehow familiar with the use of ontologies, please consider answering this survey.

Advice on new controlled vocabulary

Hi all,

I'm involved in a project to establish a global network for long-term agricultural experiments (experiments running for >10 years). One aim of the project is to improve access to and interoperability of datasets from these experiments. In most cases I think existing ontologies/vocabularies can be used, but experiment names, fields and plots are not represented by any controlled vocabularly. Clearly creating a concept ID for a name means an experiment, field or plot can be umabiguously referenced, e.g. in DOI metadata.
