    Dear RDA secretariat
    Thank you for accepting our proposed session.
    However, could I draw your attention to the fact that the title of this session is Place-based Open Science Joint Session not Plant-based Open Science? (see below in yellow)
    It is correct on our web page, but I fear your internal lists many have it incorrectly listed:
    Take care

    Dear Chairs of the Physical Samples and Collections in the Research Data Ecosystem IG, International Indigenous Data Sovereignty IG and RDA for the Sustainable Development Goals IG,
    The Technical Advisory Board (TAB) has completed its review of session applications for the RDA Virtual Plenary 18 (VP18) and has accepted your application titled Plant-based Open Science Joint Session. Please consider this your official notification of acceptance. Congratulations!
    TAB has asked the Secretariat to communicate some suggestions to you for improving your session: TAB recognises the value of bringing these groups together to discuss common issues, however the objectives of this session do not clearly capitalize on this potential value. They would like you to please clarify the meeting objectives to draw in additional attendees.
    If you have any questions or concerns regarding these suggestions, or prefer to discuss them with TAB, please contact your TAB liaisons, Jeremy Geelen, Isabelle Perseil and Jeremy Geelen (copied in this email).
    At this time, the Secretariat is scheduling all approved sessions and the draft programme will be published on 24th September. Any requests for changes should be made by 1st October and the final detailed programme with your session time and link to your session page will be published by 8th October 2021 on the RDA website.
    For this meeting, Zoom will be used for your session and further information and access details will be provided in due course.
    Going forward, please begin planning for your session. As a reminder, there will be some individuals who attend your session who are unfamiliar with your group’s work. We encourage you to keep your session page updated with information about your group, your session and opportunities attendees will have to engage with you and others during the session.
    Please contact us at ***@***.***, or your TAB liaison (as indicated above), if you have any questions about your session.
    Registration for VP18 is now live, please see here for details together with an outline of the registration fees. Please bear in mind that RDA is not in a position to offer free speaker admissions or single-session rates. Registered participants have access to all programme components, including recordings of all meetings.
    Should you wish to submit a poster for VP18 please remember the deadline for submission is Wednesday 15th September 2021 23:59 UTC . Please see here for further details.
    We look forward to your participation at VP18, and on behalf of the RDA TAB and Secretariat, thank you for your ongoing engagement with the RDA.
    All the best,
    RDA Secretariat
