at the second RDA plenary from 16. july to 18. July we will have a meeting of the Agricultural Data Interest Group. It will take place on Tuesday 17th September from 9 am to 1 pm at the Conference Venue (Mariott Hotel).
I hope, many of you will be able to participate in person, but we will try to set up a Google hangout to involve also remote participants. I would be good if you could tell (as comments to this post :-), if you will join in person or remotely.
I would like to propose an agenda as follows:
01 Discussion of the group Charter and Goals (should this really be limited to interoperability questions)
02 Discussion of the "Working Group" Wheat data Interoperability
Brainstorming about elements of the survey for data types and data standards
03 Further topics that could be brought on the agenda or on working group level
metadata and terminology
04 How to increase partecipation in the RDA Interestgroup
getting USDA involved
05 Report on related projects (agINFRA, agriXchange.........)
06 How to exploit the possibilities of NSF and Horizon 2020 for data related projects
07 Any other business.
This agenda is only a proposal. Please comment!
