I am appending here the proposal for our IG kick-off session in Montréal.
Let us know if you have any suggestions. We will submit the proposal
tomorrow evening (CEST). Thanks.
Meeting title: Interest Group Kick-Off Meeting
Short introduction: Following the Denver (P8) and Barcelona (P9) BoF
meetings, this meeting is to kick-off the newly formed Interest Group.
Broadly speaking, this IG aims to advance shared understanding of the
relationship between data and information, primarily in the context of
environmental research infrastructures for observational data and
information about observed environments. Key issues are the distinction
between data and information, in particular observations and derived
information about environmental phenomena not observed directly, as well as
the processes that evolve observational data into information. Our aim is
to provide a platform for discussing and advancing this subject matter.

Meeting objectives: The meeting will kick-off the newly formed Interest
Meeting agenda: The meeting will provide an update of activities since P9
and discuss the next steps for the IG. A proposal is to collect comparable
use cases that describe the evolution of observational data into derived
semantic information in different contexts. We will present other proposals
collected ahead of the meeting. We will also present and discuss a first
draft for a Case Statement for the IG. A more detailed agenda will be
