    Dear all,
    as we have seen a few new members join the WG over the past few weeks I
    would like to use this email to
    – welcome the new members!
    – inform all of you that we’ve submitted a request to hold a session
    at the next RDA Plenary (March 21-23 in Gothenburg), which I hope
    will be granted to get all of us together again to discuss the
    recommendations, new adoptions, questions and challenges identified,
    and any support needed.
    With this in mind I’d like to invite anybody who has been / is currently
    / is planning to implement the recommendations in their infrastructure,
    or who has identified any challenges, questions, etc. to let us know,
    either Mark and myself personally, or via the mailinglist, so that we
    can pick these up.
    Also, if you would like to present something at the next plenary, or add
    an item to the agenda, please let us know! We would also like to
    continue the Webinar series where we share specific adoption cases,
    pilots, etc. Again, let us know if you would like to share yours.
    Apart from that, I’d also like to point to the current set of
    information material available on the recommendations, specifically:
    – The WGDC Recommendations in the short form of a 2-page flyer:
    – An extended Description of Recommendations is available at:
    Bulletin of the IEEE Technical Committee on Digital Libraries,
    12:1, 2016.
    – A comprehensive review of the recommendations, the wide range of
    reference implementations as well as a survey of all adoptions
    reported over the years has recently been published in
    Rauber, A., Gößwein, B., Zwölf, C. M., Schubert, C., Wörister, F.,
    Duncan, J., … Parsons, M. A. (2021). Precisely and Persistently
    Identifying and Citing Arbitrary Subsets of Dynamic Data.
    Harvard Data Science Review, 3(4).
    – The recordings of our Webinar series, plus slide decks and supporting
    papers by adopters presenting their experience in implementing the
    recommendations are collected at the RDA WGDC webinar page at
    Looking forward to hearing from you!
    best regards,
