Meeting title

First meeting to discuss forming a WG on Persistent Identification of Instruments

Short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group: 

Instruments, such as sensors used in environmental science, DNA sequencers used in life sciences or laboratory engines used for medical domains, are widespread in most field of applied sciences. The ability to link an instrument (instance) with an instrument type and with the broader context in which the instrument operates (including generated data, other instruments and platforms, people and manufacturers, etc.) is critical, especially for automated processing of such contextual information and for the interpretation of generated data. A possible direction for this group is to focus on obtaining agreement on a profile that complements existing schema (e.g. SensorML, TML, StarFL, etc.) for metadata about instruments, a mechanism to register metadata with PID infrastructure, and a mechanism to resolve an instrument PID to a landing page with further information about the instrument and supporting content negotiation.
