Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group: 

Instruments, such as sensors used in environmental science, DNA sequencers used in life sciences, or laboratory instruments used for medical research, are ubiquitous and fundamental to most fields of science. The ability to unambiguously refer to and describe an instrument instance, link the instance with instrument type as well as with the broader context in which the instrument operates is critical, especially for automated processing of such contextual information and for the interpretation of generated data. The PIDINST WG developed a community driven metadata schema and recommendation for implementing persistent identification of instruments in existing PID infrastructure.

Short Group Status: 

PIDINST has completed its work and published its deliverables. The group continues to maintain the schema and is now actively working with the community on adoption of the proposed approaches for persistent identification of instruments.
