Research Data Alliance (RDA)
2nd Working Group Collaboration Meeting
November 13 – 14, 2014
This meeting was a continuation of a meeting series that was started in Garching last February. The next of these will be held in Karlsruhe in June of 2015. The objective of these meetings is to have a detailed update from and focused discussion among Working Groups, something that has proved elusive at the busy Plenary meetings, and to generate discussion on how the WGs can work together to improve overall RDA outputs. The focus of the Garching meeting was on the Data Foundations and Terminology WG and the focus of this meeting was on the Metadata WG, on the relationships among the Working Groups, and the evolving notion of the Data Fabric as a framework into which the WG outputs would fit.
The presentations are linked to the schedule below. Rough notes were taken by one of Jane Greenberg's students (thanks Jamie) and should be considered memory joggers and not a stand-alone record of the meeting.
