Potential joint session for P10

19 Jun 2017
Groups audience: 

Dear Chairs of the ELIXIR Bridging Force IG,
Following up on the Call for Sessions for the upcoming RDA P10
(https://www.rd-alliance.org/rda-10th-plenary-call-sessions), I would like
to initiate a discussion regarding a potential Joint Session between the
BioSharing WG and the Data Discovery Paradigms IG (DDPIG -
Within the overall context of the FAIR ("Findable, Accessible, Interpretable
and Reusable") Principle in Research Data , DDPIG focuses in particular on
the "Findable" aspect of Research Data, providing a forum where
representatives from across the spectrum of stakeholders and roles
pertaining to data search can discuss issues related to improving data
discovery. There are several Task Forces in place under the umbrella
organization of DDPIG; "Relevancy Ranking", "Use Cases, Prototyping Tools
and Test Collections" and "Best Practices for Making Data Findable" have
been up and running for the past six months, whereas "Metadata Enrichment"
and "Cataloging Common API's for Data Query" have just been launched.
Given that the ELIXIR Bridging Force IG is formed to serve as a bridge
between ELIXIR and relevant RDA Interest Groups, we believe that a joint
session between the two groups may provide some interesting insights into
the data discoverability processes focusing particularly in Life Sciences,
including best practices for meta-data and relevancy ranking.
Just as a gentle reminder, the deadline for submissions is this Friday June
Kind regards,
Fotis E. Psomopoulos
