    Important dates:
    July 31, 2015: Early Bird Registration Ends

    September 1, 2015: Publication of the final program with defined session description, objectives and agenda
    1. Preparation
    As the number of sessions at P6 are constrained, it’s a good idea to try and move material out of the sessions to free up some time. A good candidate for this is anything that is one-way information flow (such as an update on what the group has been doing). Consider placing this material on your RDA group site and explain that you will assume people have read this prior to coming to the session. You should also consider holding preparatory audio/video conferences ahead of the meeting to both plan the session and answer any common questions. Finally, any documents to be shared should be sent out as early as possible. This allows people who are attending to prepare for the sessions, and those who can’t attend to provide their thoughts in plenty of time.
    2. Understanding your audience
    This year, we will be colour-coding the WG sessions in the program to indicate whether they have been going 0-6 months, 6-12 months, or 12-18 months. We hope this will manage expectations a bit better for those who turn up. It might still be useful to ask at the start of each session who is new, and point them to your materials in your group area on the website so they can get up to speed.
    3. Supporting those who can’t be there
    Of course, not everyone who cares about the work of your group can be present in Paris. We are still working out how best to support remote access (more on this closer to the event), but you should arrange to have someone take notes about the session and any actions arising, and place these in your group area for the benefit of those who couldn’t attend (or who had a clash!).
    4. Working, not presenting
    We’d like to encourage you to use the time in Paris to get work done. In particular, try to avoid overuse of presentations – place these online prior to the meeting and ask people to review them. Think about how best to structure your sessions to discuss issues, achieve consensus and assign tasks. And, this year, there will be additional unbooked rooms in each session that you can request from the conference organisers if you need more time around a table to plan the next 6-12 months.
    5. TAB wants to help!
    And, of course, your TAB liaisons are ready to help you with this in any way possible. Please contact them with any questions.
    Many thanks and kindest regards,
