methods for auto-generating structured metadata

Hi Kaylin,
The Metadata Enhancement Task Force, a sub-committee of the Research
Data Alliance Data Discovery Paradigms Interest Group, is investigating
methods for auto-generating structured metadata. Enhancing the metadata
records associated with research data improves search and supports
automation services such as data processing workflows.
The Task Force is currently developing a survey to collect information
on methods and tools for auto-generating metadata, including related

Re: [rda-metadata-ig][domain-repositories-ig][vocabulary_services] methods for auto-generating structured metadata

I refer the group to the related work of the W3C Data Exchange Working
Group. [1] I think the move towards being able to explicitly define
profiles of such metadata provides useful opportunities to control the
quality and interoperability of such metadata.
This group has a Use Case and Requirements document First Public Working
Draft out for comment. Please engage :-)

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.

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.
