The group started in Jan 2017 and will close on June 2018. 

The goal of the Agrisemantics WG is to gather community-based requirements and use cases for an infrastructure that supports appropriate use of semantics for data interoperability, with special focus on agriculture.

The outputs of the WG will be:

  1. A report on semantics landscape for agricultural data,
  2. A set of use cases and requirements,
  3. A document on recommendations for the future of semantics for agricultural data - software, functionalities, semantic assets to enhance data interoperability in agriculture. 

Ongoing activities

  1. preparation of the first deliverable, on a landscape of the use of semantics for agricultural data. Current draft will be made available shortly. 
  2. bi-weekly calls. Register to the group to keep abreast of developments. 

Some shared resources

  1. A poster on semantics in agriculture - a visual introduction! Feel free to print it out and hang it to your door :) 

Upcoming group-related events:

  1. Hackaton @Montpellier
  2. workshop IN-OVIVE

Past group events:

  1. IGAD RDA Pre-meeting: 10' presentation of WG first results
  2. RDA P9 - Joint Session of IG Agricultural Data, WG Wheat Data Interoperability, WG Rice Data Interoperability, WG Agrisemantics: Results of the IGAD Pre-Meeting RDA P9 adopting RDA outputs
  3. RDA P9 - WG Agrisemantics: Landscaping the support of semantics for data interoperability in agriculture 
  4. panel @MTSR

Hi all,
My name is Alexandra Strick and I am excited to be a member of the Agrisemantics working group.
I wanted to reach out as I saw in the minutes from the IGAD/RDA Pre-meeting that one of the main goals of the working group is to establish a means of interoperability of data standards, as well as the confidential sharing of data.

News from RDA in Barcelona and next steps

Dear all,
We had a very good time in Barcelona! Great presentations and rich discussions thanks to all participants of the Agrisemantics sessions (and others) during the IGAD pre-meeting and the RDA Plenary... and also during lunches, dinners, and coffee breaks. All these moments were opportunities to meet and share ideas and experience.
We hope that you enjoyed it too. We want to thank you all for attending the Agrisemantics sessions and contributing to the group's work.
... and we welcome newcomers!

EMBL-EBI Industry Workshop ‘Ontologies in Agriculture, Food and Nutrition’

Dear all,
I am enclosing to this email the agenda of a workshop, on Ontologies in
Agriculture, Food and Nutrition, that will happen in a couple of weeks at
the EBI.
As you will see in the agenda, several people of the Agrisemantics
community, some attending the IGAD in Barcelona, will also be there.
I will be great to link the results of that workshop to IGAD (and viceversa
of course).
best regards,
Erick
