6th WG/IG Collaboration Meeting at NIST, Dec 12-13, 2016


This short-lived group contains details regarding the upcoming RDA Collaboration Meeting at NIST, as announced at the event information site.


The meeting will begin at 13:00 on Dec 12 and end at 15:00 on Dec 13, 2016. All RDA Chairs are invited, but registration is required. To register, please go to https://appam.certain.com/profile/form/index.cfm?PKformID=0x32054c1ac


That link is also included in the NIST logistics package, which is included here as an attachment. It also contains the lodging recommendations. For lodging most participants found the nearby Hilton


Hilton Washington DC North/Gaithersburg
620 Perry Parkway, Gaithersburg, Maryland, 20877


to be convenient. It is walkable for those who like to walk, and we will figure out transport for those who find it to be too far.


The agenda will follow shortly.

Arrival Instructions for Registered Attendee for Research Data Alliance (RDA) 2016 | December 12-13, 2016


Those of you who are attending the upcoming Chairs' Meeting next Monday and Tuesday in person should have recently received an email from Karen Startsman with the above subject line and detailed instructions on entering NIST, including the Pass that will get you on to the campus. We are meeting in Lecture Room D in building 101 (the tall one), which I believe is where we met last year, or at least near that one.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you plan on attending in person and DID NOT receive that email.

Thanks and see many of you next Monday.
