BoF proposal relating to the CODATA International Science Council Decadal Programme ‘Data for the Planet: making data work across domain boundaries’
This BoF session seeks to engage existing RDA Groups and the RDA community with the International Science Council’s Science Action plan and the Decadal Programme ‘Data for the Planet: making data work across domain boundaries’ that CODATA is preparing as part of that initiative. It is hoped that RDA groups can contribute to the programme.
The target audience is:
Scientists and data experts with an interest in cross-domain global challenge research, including but not limited to, the Sustainable Development Goals, Disaster Risk Reduction, infectious and non-infectious diseases (SDG3), resilient cities (SDG11), biodiversity, agriculture and nutrition.
Experts in metadata specifications, vocabularies, taxonomies and semantics relevant to any of these areas.
Existing RDA Groups on SDGs, domain interoperability and so on.
RDA discipline focussed-IGs/WGs
We may look to initiate an Interest Group if that is felt to be a useful means of furthering engagement and collaboration on the Data for our Planet Decadal Program.
For these reasons we would prefer to avoid clashes with:
Sessions to avoid conflict with:
RDA for SDGs IG
Earth Space and Environmental Science IG
The Social Science Interest Group
And also the Data Quality Assessment joint meeting; Vocabulary Services Group.
