Re: [rda-metadata-ig][rda-datacontext-ig][mscwg] Metadata IG Sessions at RDA P11 in Berlin

Oya,
Yes, it does sound like the groups are addressing similar topics. I (and
perhaps Keith Jeffery) will join the the BoF during
session 3 to understand what extensions which interest that group. The DXWG
of W3C is considering improvements to DCAT. Keith Jeffery will be
presenting the issues in session 8 on Friday. It would be interesting to
see if the extensions of interest to
the BoF are already being considered by the W3C DXWG and we invite you to
session 8 on Friday.
Regards,
Rebecca
