    Hi all,
    Firstly. Thank you about the Gaborone sessio of the RDARI IG. Again we
    had more slides than we had time to present. Time went to the discussion
    about interesting things.
    For thos who had not possibility to participate International Data Week
    and RDA plenary, Rossella Aversa has made the meeting notes here:

    Thank you Rossella!
    Couple of things:
    1. Next plenary session
    RDA has opened the call for sessions in next RDA Plenary to be held in
    Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from 2nd to 4th April 2019.
    Caal has opened on 16 November 2018 and it will close 5 January 2019.
    This means that we have make some decisions about Philadelphia.
    2. Theme for the Philadelphia session
    If we are going to apply the session in Philadelphia, we need topic. We
    will build the programme for the session based on this topic. Our topic
    in Gaborone was ”Storage architectures, challenges, and use cases”.
    We will discuss about this on next web meeting, but I propose that we
    make discuss about this issue via email also. Which topic you like to
    discuss in Philadelphia?
    3. Next web meeting.
    I have prepared the Doodle to solve when we can arrange the next web
    meeting: https://doodle.com/poll/ecw83xefz3vheqs3
    Please make your choises before end of this month (30th November).
    Short agenda proposal:
    – Shor Gaborone recap
    – Governance survey and news from Gaborone (James participated in
    Gaborone the meeting of the IG working on questionnaires)
    – Prepairing the Philadelphia session application
    – Topic for the Philadelphia
    – RDARI IG co-chair issues
    4. The new co-chair of the group
    As I informed in Gaborone, we have two empty seats for new co-chairs of
    the IG (but unfortunately no for Europeans, because me and James comes
    from there).
    Keith Russel from Australian Research Data Commons has voluteered to act
    as co-chair. Keith has been active member of the IG and I think it is a
    good idea that he would act as co-chair.
    I propose that we discuss about co-chair issue also in next web meeting
    and if there is not any obstacles (like more than 2 new co-chair
    candidates), we can confirm the new co-chair for the RDARI IG.
    This also means that if you are interested in to act as a co-chair of
    the group, please inform us.
    Have a nice weekend!
    With the best regards,
    Ville
