Hello Dimitri and All,
Thank you and all of those who were able to participate in the group
session yesterday. As Dmitri said, it was a great session with such great
energy throughout the session.
For those members who were unable to participate, here is the short summary
of the session:
*”The session continued our group’s monthly call, it started with a short
introduction to the group and group activity. 80% of session time was
contributed to the discussion of the working draft Ten simple rules for
data repositories/catalogues to improve data discoverability
Participants contributed valuable ideas and suggestions to shape and
advance this work.”*
*We gathered many ideas and contents to advance the work on ten rules. We
will focus our efforts for the next 6 (monthly) calls, aiming to have a
ready version for the next plenary #21 in October. *
*The group has a regular monthly call on the third Wednesday of each month,
starting 12pm UTC, for an hour. The next one is the19th April. *
*We will send a reminder email of the meeting a couple of days ahead of
each meeting. *
*In between the calls, we encourage you, especially those who were unable
to join the monthly calls, to add your ideas and suggestions to the
above **Google

*Kind regards,*
*Kathleen, Fotis and Ming*
