Re: [rda-legalinterop-ig] Reminder: Legal Interoperability Call - Monday, 20th March -...

20 Mar 2017

Thanks to everyone who was able to make the call today, despite the
last minute telecon glitch. It was certainly interesting to talk with
Carrie Selzer of NSF, Mark Thorley of NERC, and Bob Samors of the
Belmont Forum about plans for the BF e-Infrastructure project and
potential collaboration with our group. I will try to circulate the
slide presentation that Mark Thorley presented in
In brief, the Belmont Forum is looking to existing groups to help
address data management and sharing issues associated with the BF
activities, which involve multi-national research efforts funded by
the many science agencies around the world that support global change
research. They are potentially interested in working with us to
provide guidance on legal issues such as licensing, privacy, and
liability. Ideally, we could develop a plan for moving ahead in the
next few months, in time to provide inputs in September for the next
BF plenary in November. Possibilities include working on a joint case
study/use case, organizing a meeting on key issues, and/or
participating in a policy advisory group that they are thinking of
establishing.
The following Google doc has been set up to exchange ideas on this:

Gail has already started populating it!
Those of you who were on the call should feel free to comment or add
more information.
We will need to aside some time in Barcelona to discuss this. And
speaking of which, we do need to pin down a time for a side meeting in
Barcelona. I will send out a doodle poll with some potential times
shortly.
Cheers, Bob

    Here is the doodle poll for a side meeting on April 5, 6, or 7:
    http://doodle.com/poll/9dbim79nubhrivgp
    Looking at the RDA schedule, I picked a breakfast time 90 minutes
    before the opening session each day, the 1-hour lunch slot at 1 pm on
    Wed/Thurs, and a late afternoon option before the social event or
    dinner on Wed/Thurs. On Friday, I also selected the final breakout
    slot at 11 am (which would conflict with that set of IG/WG meetings)
    and 1:30 pm, after the close of the meeting.
    Please recall that our session is Friday morning at 9 am. We could
    consider picking 2 times for side meetings, one before and one after
    the session.
    Please fill out the poll ASAP!
    Mark Thorley conveyed thanks on behalf of his colleagues for
    participating in today's telecon, and sent this link to the
    presentation:

    He also noted that there is more information on the e-Infrastructure
    and Data Management activity at: www.bfe-inf.org

    Thanks, Bob.
    At the moment it is not clear at all that I can make it to Barcelona. Ihave been so swamped with my teaching this term that I have not even started to plan for the travel. Back to term papers grading. Cheers,

    Dear all,
    Apologies for the mistake and the inconvenient on Monday.
    As Asha explained, our account has expired and I was on leave. I had seen a notification from GoToWebinar that the account needed renewing, but I thought that this pertained to the webinar part of the contract only rather than to the whole bundle and to GoToMeeting as such. It seems not and our account comes under the title of GoToWebinar which I had not entirely realised.
    My apologies for this confusion - I hope, as it seems, that despite this inconvenience, the call was nevertheless useful and productive.
    With very best wishes,
    Simon.
