Update from Co-Chairs

04 Feb 2019

Dear Legal Interop Colleagues,
Happy New Year to you all!
Co-Chairs Christoph Bruch, Robert Chen, and I have been working as a small subset to reconsider the IG's aims in preparation for submitting a revised IG charter outlining our future aims and continued work.
Please join our soon-to-resume weekly Friday telecon discussions as we finalize the Group's revised charter. CODATA will be sending around the details for these calls shortly.
We have also submitted a proposal for a session at Plenary 13-Philadelphia and are waiting to hear back on approval. The objective of this program is to
(a) finalize the IG charter
(b) discuss a relevant case study regarding multipart research data objects
There is much need for guidance on implementing the Principles of Legal Interoperability, our Sept 2016 output.
Looking forward to hearing from you all and re-booting the IG's efforts after a temporary lull.
Best wishes,
Gail P. Clement
Head of Research Services & Librarian for Geological and Planetary Sciences
