status: Recognised & Endorsed

Chair (s): brandon whitehead, Caterina Caracciolo, Sophie Aubin

Group Email: [group_email]

Secretariat Liaison: Stefanie Kethers


The group started in Jan 2017 and should close shortly. 

The goal of the Agrisemantics WG is to gather community-based requirements and use cases for an infrastructure that supports appropriate use of semantics for data interoperability, with special focus on agriculture.

The outputs of the WG will be:

  1. A report on semantics landscape for agricultural data,
  2. A set of use cases and requirements,
  3. 39 Hints to Facilitate the Use of Semantics for Data on Agriculture and Nutrition: Recommendations from the RDA Agrisemantics Working Group (for community review, please send your comments)

Ongoing activities

  • We are considering pathways for the adoption of the recommendations by the targeted stakeholders (data managers, semantics profesionnals, software developers, and policy makers and funders): paper; conferences, GO FAIR IN, institutional projects, and services etc.
  • We are considering the future of the group in RDA and outside

Some shared resources

  1. A poster on semantics in agriculture - a visual introduction! Feel free to print it out and hang it to your door :)

Feedback wanted on a FAIRsFAIR report re (semantic) interoperability

by Sophie Aubin

Dear all, I hope my email finds you well. This is just a reminder that feedback is requested by FAIRsFAIR on the following reports which deals much with semantic interoperability. Deadline is in 2 days from now. This report will feed the works on EOSC interoperability layer so it is particularly important that the requirements and recommendations of our community are reflected. Take care, Sophie Feedback Invited: FAIRsFAIR Requirements for Persistence and Interoperability and Preliminary Policy Recommendations
