Fwd: [rda-datafabric-ig] 3 DFIG items and one action

22 Feb 2017

Dear all,
Perhaps some of you were as surprised as me to receive this mail with “recommendations on what we should do next”.
I could certainly comment on the contents of the document - e.g. the references to HEP, the EIROforum - but my main issue is process. Is DFIG - of even a subset - tasked to make such “recommendations”?
Maybe I am mis-reading this mail; maybe it is another example of “volunteer” work (and not official); maybe I have mis-read the Council mandate?
Cheers, Jamie

Dear DFIG colleagues,
some of us in DFIG were active and it is now time to present 3 items to you. Please do NOT respond per email, but use the DFIG pages to comment. We will update the pages during the coming days.
1. We were also asked by the European Commission to come up with recommendations of what should be done next. Since there is no such statement from RDA Global or RDA Europe we asked a bunch of people to contribute and to support a joint paper. Much of this comes from the realm of discussions in the Data Fabric IG, but we are sure that there is more to say. We will include the document also on the DFIG pages under recommendations so that everyone can support the document or comment/criticise its content. EC colleagues were rather happy that we delivered come clear statements, but the discussions will continue.

2. We had the first interaction of the GEDE focus are group on PID issues and there are notes which will be shared. We would like to open a PID focus area group within DFIG to continue these discussions also at global level. We will not setup a special email-list but continue the sub-section on the DFIG recommendation/guidelines page. The current version of the notes and the preparation document are attached.
3. A number of us started to collect ideas and comments around Global Digital Object Cloud and Type-Triggered Automatic Processing. It is currently in form of a set of slides (to be short and include graphics) which are not meant for presentation. A special interest is also to see where and how brokering can/will play a role. We will also put things now on the DFIG pages so that everyone in DFIG can comment. The goal is still - as discussed in Denver - to write a new White Paper or so, since the first one of DFIG is outdated. Everyone who contributes should be on the list of "contributors".
As indicated: Do NOT respond to this email, but use the online web page to comment. During the coming days we will update the DFIG pages.
best
Peter

Dear RDA group chairs, TAB and Sec members,
within shortest time frame we had to prepare two documents to the European Commission which might be of general interest for you.
- We were asked to do a self-assessment of RDA Europe in particular with a focus on how well we established interactions with research communities. Within roughly 2 months we tried to come up with a comprehensive document which was also good for us as a kind of basis what we achieved and what not.

Some in the realm of DFIG worked on some ideas around Global Digital Object Cloud which will be updated at the DFIG pages.
We also had a review of the RDA Europe project by 2 experienced external people. We will see how we can summarise the comments to also make it available to everyone.

Subject: [rda-wg-ig-chairs] 7th RDA WG/IG Chairs' Collaboration
Meeting, 12-
14 June, Gothenburg, SE
All,
Based on feedback during the 6th Collaboration Meeting at NIST last
December and the subsequent email discussion we will move from a 'one
full day over two days' schedule to a 'two full days over three days' schedule.
Our Gothenburg hosts, Max Petzhold and Lars Borjesson, have agreed to
accommodate this schedule, for which we are grateful. We will evaluate
the success of the new approach after this meeting.
Also following discussion we will change the meeting emphasis
somewhat, although not completely. As most of you know the original
purpose of these meetings was information exchange and potential
collaboration across Groups, which was hard to manage at the busy
Plenaries. Recent discussions showed a clear desire for the longer
meeting to try to move beyond information exchange towards the more
strategic - use the extra time to get more done. There were a number
of thoughtful suggestions and we will try to combine the information
exchange approach with a gap analysis (thanks to Stefan Kramer for
that suggestion) in which we ask each Group willing to give an update
to also identify the gaps that they see in their domain and/or
technical infrastructure work. Where are you, where are you going, and
what is missing? Out of this we will use the assembled brain power,
again admittedly just a percentage of the total RDA Groups, to produce
a gap analysis in selected areas. Not only do we hope that this can
reveal ways in which the Groups could further collaborate but a number
of TAB members, and we hope at least one of the co-chairs, will be present and we see this approach as providing feedback to them for their work.
Please contact both Peter and I with proposals for presentations as
soon as possible. Nothing more than a willingness to participate fully
is required. We hope to accommodate 8-10 Groups. As before, travel funding is available.
Contact myself (***@***.***) for U.S. participant
support and Kathrin Beck (***@***.*** ) for EU participant support.
Preference will be given to those who feel they can contribute to the
agenda as described above.
The dates of the meeting are 12 June to 14 June, starting at 13:00 on
Day 1 and ending at 12:00 on Day 3. Group dinners will be planned for
the evenings of Day 1 and Day 2 and a side event is being organized
for the afternoon of Day 3. Logistics details to come.
Best,
Peter and Larry=
