the following session at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly
2017 may be of interest to those combining PID topics with geosciences
and related disciplines. Submission deadline is January 11.
Apologies for cross-postings.
ESSI 2.3 - Developing Persistent Identifiers for Future Applications and
Persistent identifiers are well established as means for identifying
literature and data on the web. More uses for persistent identification
(persons, specimens, …) are emerging. Persistent identifiers can also be
used anchor points in the semantic web and thus aid discovery of
research resources. When using linked data beyond reasoning about
concepts, but for reasoning about concrete identifiable objects,
persistent identifiers are crucial for unambiguous identification of
these objects. Furthermore, persistent identifier metadata should hold
information about how they relate to other objects. This "cross-linking"
has been a feature of some persistent identifier systems for more than a
decade, but only now is cross-linking between identifiable objects being
Potential topics for this session could be:
- There’s more than landing pages: making PIDs machine actionable.
- How mature is the semantic web? If URLs for objects break, how stable
are URIs in vocabularies, ontologies and schemas? Who is going to be
responsible for their maintenance? PIDs claim persistency, but what is
required to reap their benefits for the Semantic Web?
- New uses for PID in workflows and provenance tracking, software
publication, identification of physical specimens, identification of
instruments and sensors, PID in Virtual Research Environments
- Fresh ideas for persistent identification: Blockchain concepts, Magnet
Links, the world beyond HTTP.
