BoF Chemical Data Interest Group Discussion - P6 BOF session

23 September 2015- BREAKOUT 3 - 15:30


This session is designed to bring together researchers in the domain of chemistry for a discussion about the formation of an RDA Interest Group (IG) on Chemical Data.

Preliminary agenda

- Presentation of initial thoughts on forming an IG

Why this is a good idea? Chemistry specific needs?

What’s needed for related disciplines (e.g. biology, medicine, health, safety)?

- Identification of existing projects to connect with the IG

- Invite nominations for chair elect(s) of the IG

- Review of draft IG charter and identification of revisions

- Discussion of alignment with other chemistry groups e.g. IUPAC, ACS, RSC

- Identification/invitation of members to participate in the IG

- Mechanisms to advertise the formation of the IG
