    IMRR WG:
    MO TG:​

    Are you willing to hold your session at multiple times to accommodate various time zones?

    Avoid conflict with the following group (1)
    Research data needs of the Photon and Neutron Science community IG

    Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group
    The Materials Data, Infrastructure, & Interoperability (MDII) was founded in 2013 and aims to foster exchange of computational & experimental materials data through shared online repositories, standardized formats/terminologies & open programming interfaces.  The International Materials Resource Registries Working Group focused on developing the metadata standards required to establish a network of IMRRs in key sub-domains and regions.  
    The Materials Ontology Task Group is part of the focus of the Materials Data Interest Group and concentrates on upper level ontology use/best practices/issues for materials as demonstrated in existing domain ontologies.​
