Big Meeting at RDA tomorrow

Hi everyone,
Tomorrow the RDA Vocabulary and Semantic Services Interest Group will meet from 9:00 to 10:30 AM CET (GMT+1, I believe), in B95 (second floor, between the 2 straight staircases).
We co-chairs and supporters have been scrambling to get ready for the call, as our chair-among-co-chairs, Simon Cox, was unable to travel at the last minute. I am sending this email both as an update and a last reminder.

RDA VSSIG Ontology Metadata Task Group Survey

Dear RDA WGs,
I transfer this to this 3 groups that I know and sometimes participate in, but feel free to transfer this to other metadata/standardization/ontologies related WGs.
Thanks
-------------------
Dear all,
[Apologies for multiple receptions - this announcement has been sent to multiple mailing lists of the ontology/semantic Web/linked data/standardization communities.]
If you are somehow familiar with the use of ontologies, please consider answering this survey.

INSPIRE Best Practices / Guidelines for registers & register federation

Dear colleagues,

I just came across this group and, reading the charter proposal, I think the best practices and guidelines developed for INSPIRE (the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe) for registers (= vocabularies), registries (= vocabulary services) and register federation could be useful: https://inspire.ec.europa.eu/id/document/tg/registers-and-register-feder...

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 :-)

Reminder: vocabulary task groups are meeting via Slack

Just a reminder to those who may not have checked in recently: the Vocabulary and Semantic Services Interest Group has five task groups, each of which is meeting (semi-synchronously) on a continuous basis via Slack. If you had intended to be involved with any of these please check for current activity over at

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
doi:10.1371/journal.pbio.2001414
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.
