    Meeting objectives
    Collaborative session notes:
    The group has worked on the principles of data versioning practices and published a set of principles to describe data versioning use cases and practices. The presentation of the data versioning principles, a community review and discussions at the RDA VP16 showed that the application of the data versioning principles reach further than data management but has implications for attribution, authority, and ethics of data publication and sharing.
    The objectives of this meeting are to re-form as an Interest Group from where the Working Group ended. At this meeting, the Data Versioning IG will constitute its new leadership and work plan until the next plenary. The proposed activities for the Data Versioning IG are planning activities to develop a set of recommendations from the data versioning principles, promote their adoption, and analyze how they can be applied to questions of attribution, authority, and ethics arising from data publication and sharing.
