09 Sep 2021

Dear Chairs of the Research Data Architectures in Research Institutions IG,
The Technical Advisory Board (TAB) has completed its review of session applications for the RDA Virtual Plenary 18 (VP18) and has accepted your application titled Challenges in improving interoperability within your research institution. Please consider this your official notification of acceptance. Congratulations!
TAB has asked the Secretariat to communicate some suggestions to you for improving your session: They would like you to provide a clear definition of interoperability in the session description. TAB also suggests reaching out to the Data Fabric Interest Group that is concerned with many of the same issues.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding these suggestions, or prefer to discuss them with TAB, please contact your TAB liaison, Karin Breitman (copied in this email).
At this time, the Secretariat is scheduling all approved sessions and the draft programme will be published on 24th September. Any requests for changes should be made by 1st October and the final detailed programme with your session time and link to your session page will be published by 8th October 2021 on the RDA website.
For this meeting, Zoom will be used for your session and further information and access details will be provided in due course.
Going forward, please begin planning for your session. As a reminder, there will be some individuals who attend your session who are unfamiliar with your group’s work. We encourage you to keep your session page updated with information about your group, your session and opportunities attendees will have to engage with you and others during the session.
Please contact us at ***@***.***-foundation.org, or your TAB liaison (as indicated above), if you have any questions about your session.
