Deadline for P15 Group Session Submissions Fast Approaching

Dear Group Members, 

The deadline for group session submissions for Plenary 15 is 28 November 2019, midnight UTC – just two weeks away.

If your group is interested in submitting a session for a working group, interest group or joint meeting session, submissions will only be accepted from your group chairs, so be sure to coordinate with them to ensure proper communication of the submission.   

If you are a chair and submitting for a joint meeting session, all chairs involved in that joint session must be notified of the submission.

[FYI] A few updates

Dear all,
we had yesterday the group's wrap-up session at P14 in Helsinki and
with this the WG has transitioned into "maintenance mode". In the

run the group will work on adoption, in particular with institutional
instrument providers but also with PID infrastructures.
We have now published the P14 slides on the RDA website:

Identifiers for instruments?

Hello all,
I look forward to working with this group to try to encourage and facilitate adoption of identifiers for instruments. During the discussions I think some existing examples of metadata for instrument identifiers were mentioned. i think some of these were from DataCite…? If my memory is correct, it would be great to pull together these examples to identify good examples that might help us with guidance materials.
