IDCC19 - DMP Common Data Model

At last week's International Digital Curation Conference in Melbourne a whole day was devoted to an unconference. In the unconference, anyone could nominate and run a session with participants voting on which they would like to attend.  One popular session was devoted to looking at the DMP common data model. We had a good discussion looking at the model and how it could support the use-cases of people in the session.

Possible joint session at RDA P12

Would such a proposal for a joint session be of interest?
