Agrisemantics session at IGAD pre-meeting in Berlin

Dear all,
The Agrisemantics working session at the IGAD pre-meeting tomorrow will be dedicated to consolidate the requirements collected through the use case survey and initiate some recommendations. We will take benefit from the expertise of the many participants of IGAD who registered to our session (almost 30!). We already had very good presentations today related to FAIR principles and semantics and many questions and discussions following them.
The agenda for the morning will be:
9:30 - 10:00 Intro - presentation of use case and group org

IGAD at RDA P11: follow the guide

Dear Colleagues,
This year IGAD will focus on the implementation of the FAIR principles during the RDA P11. To this end, we propose a three-step program:
· 19-20 March at Leibniz-Gemeinschaft in Chausseestraße 111, Berlin: the pre-meeting where we will have presentations on institutional use cases, semantics and data models, and examples of implementation of the FAIR principles in research infrastructures. The full Agenda is available at

Dear all,
Additionally I would like to express our gratitude for the support that IGAD and WGs have received from the Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN), the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations to organize these series of events!

meeting today canceled

Dear all,
I am sorry to have to cancel our meeting again.
Too few advances on the use cases analysis have been done recently to justify a meeting. We will come back to you soon with an agenda for our meeting in Berlin on March 20 morning.
Regards,

Re: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig] [rda-agrisemantics-wg] Fwd: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig] Advice on new controlled vocabulary

Hi all,
The UO was created before QUDT existed. As an OBO person, I am naturally
a proponent of the benefits of an OBO-treatment of an ontology. However,
in this particular case it may be better to use a more widely supported
semantic web ontology. The UO does have some useful axiomatization
linking units to qualities in PATO; but this could be transferred to a
bridging ontology that uses QUDT. The UO may also have some specific
terms not in QUDT, but these could be maintained as an extension
ontology.

Re: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig][rda-agrisemantics-wg] Fwd: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig] Advice on new controlled vocabulary

This thread is going a lot of places, so I will keep my input short (ish). Full disclosure, I have a stake in just about everything I mention.
1) The RDA VSSIG [1] has a number of task groups [2] which may be of interest.
2) If you want to use an ontology that is not in AgroPortal or BioPortal, the hopefully straightforward solution is to add the ontology to one or both repositories, that's what they are for. I should note, BioPortal is not constrained to just biomedical ontologies. A third option is ESIP's Community Ontology Repository (COR) [3].

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.

Last Reminder: call for use cases - what are your needs when working with semantics resources?

Dear all,
Thank you to all who have already contributed their use case.. And thank you to those who are going to contribute now! :)
Based on your use cases, the Agrisemantics Working Group will elaborate on where needs are at the community level. For this reason your problems matter!!
We plan on collecting use cases until the end of January, then present preliminary results in RDA P11 in Berlin, coming March.
Please, take a look at the 6 questions we ask: https://goo.gl/u9yrzs and chose your preferred way to answer:
