Super Barbara. Thank you for arranging this.
Is there any chance it can be recorded?
I would normally attend but I have a personal activity that I must attend, so I probably will not be able to be there. Alas.
Everyone take care and stay well, best wishes to you all.

Dear all,
as you all perceive these days nothing is the way as it was a few weeks ago. RDA Plenary 15 is cancelled. But it is possible to have a virtual session instead with the very same agenda as planned.
After talking with all speakers this virtual meeting will take place 19 March Thursday 8:00 – 9.30 UTC PM (or as we are used to communicate 21:00-22:30 CET). Details on the connections will follow soon.
The agenda will include four presentations:
• S. Guru – Why FAIR observable-property vocabularies?
• A. Devaraju – Task 1 – user stories and derived use cases
• G. Moncoiffe – Task 2 – annotation practices – observable property models and terminologies in use (deliverable 1)
• Simon Cox – Task 3 – requirements – first draft
In between we will have structured discussions.
We really hope that many of you will join this session because we think this time slot should enable to participate from Europe, Australia and America, although we are aware that these are unusual working hours.

Take care!
Barbara on behalf of the I-ADOPT co-chairs
