Next steps - formation of task groups

Dear VSSIG members
Thanks all for interest in the RDA Vocabulary and Semantic Services Interest Group [0], and particularly to those who attended the recent f2f meeting in Montreal [1].
Our cunning plan to steal some extra time from the following break unfortunately foundered on the compulsory seating arrangements at lunch. However, while we did not bottom-out all the actions we had planned for that meeting, we did set up a framework for next steps, which we would now like to proceed with.

Invitation to VSSIG Slack Group

Dear Vocabulary Service interest group member
As discussed in the meeting in Montreal this morning, discussion on the VSSIG work program will continue using the vocabulary-services Slack Group. https://vocabulary-services.slack.com
Many members of this list are not yet members of the Slack group. In order to join the Slack group we need to send an invitation to your e-mail. However, individual e-mail addresses are not available to the chairs through the RDA Portal or through your membership of the VSSIG.

Units of Measure BoF at P10

Apologies for cross posting
On Wednesday Sept 22nd from 3.30 - 5.00 pm in Mansfield 8 at P10 there will be a BoF discussion of the need for formation of a Units of Measure Interest Group.
This BoF has been scheduled because of the need to prioritize units of measure when thinking about interoperable science data and the recently funded NIST grant to create a Semantic Units Repository. Please consider attending to contribute use cases, units/quantities/dimensions representation needs, previous RDA discussions and ideas relative to forming an interest group on the topic.

Re: [vocabulary_services] P10 Montreal meeting of Vocabulary and Semantic Services IG

Also consider guidelines we recently published here RE identifiers and their resolution:
Identifiers for the 21st century: How to design, provision, and reuse persistent identifiers to maximize utility and impact of life science data
I'll be there if comments, questions, criticisms, and look forward to participating!
Cheers, Melissa

RE: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig][vocabulary_services][rda-agrisemantics-wg] TR: Postdoc position on AgroPortal, GACS and ontology alignment in Montpellier, France

Dear collaborators,
We NEED you to help us found a candidate postdoc for this position. Recently the position has been extended to 18 months (rather than 12) but we need a candidate from outside France by beginning of November or the funding will be lost.
Please, transfer this email and send me recommendations. This is crucial for AgroPortal and shall be very good for GACS project.
