Introduction of all the participants: various expertise domains among which information systems management, ontologies and metadata management, data integration, workflows for data management, wheat data specialists, semantic Web, genomic annotations, phenotypes

Feed-back of Washington: Be careful to take into account what is already done in terms of standards, and well identify data sources. Feed-back from the council about the WG statement: identify at least 3 adoption groups and describe what level of adoption we aim and how we reach it.

Discussion around the charter: the cookbook is perceived as the key thing, should be useful, and function quite well. Maybe some workshops in the adoption plan.

Adoption groups: We identified 4 potential adoption groups : the IWGS consortium, CYMMIT, CSIRO, INRA

For the next meeting, we will try flash meeting:
