RDA 9th Plenary Joint meeting: IG RDA/CODATA Materials Data, Infrastructure & Interoperability, WG International Materials Resource Registries

Meeting title

Building Consensus on Materials Science Vocabulary and Identifying Partnerships

Groups: IG RDA/CODATA Materials Data, Infrastructure & Interoperability, WG International Materials Resource Registries

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

The IG Materials Data, Infrastructure, and Interoperability (MDII) was founded in 2013 and aims to foster exchange of computational & experimental materials data through shared online repositories, standardized formats/terminologies, & open programming interfaces. 

The WG International Materials Resource Registries (IMRR) aims to link the growing number of materials resources that exist or are being developed (datasets, websites, repositories, registries, etc.) in a way that makes it easier for the mat'l community to find and share relevant information and data. The group was founded and endorsed by RDA in 2016

Meeting objectives

The objectives of the meeting are:
* Analyzing the draft MatSci Vocab and identifying gaps.
* Building consensus within various subgroups of international materials community.
* Identify partners for an International Resource Registry Federation. 

Meeting agenda

Agenda (moderators: Laura Bartolo, Chandler Becker
1. Short introduction of the groups results and problem description (Laura Bartolo/Chandler Becker) 20 minutes 
2. Discussion to identify gaps (all participants) 40 minutes 
3.Discussion to identify federation partners (all participants) 20 minutes 
4. Summary of the results (Laura Bartolo/Chandler Becker) 

Audience: 

International materials community members involved with the development,dissemination and use of materials data (datasets, websites, repositories, registries, etc.).
The draft MatSci will be posted on the IMRR WG site by March 1 as well as links to the pilot NMRR. Participants are asked to review the draft vocabulary and the pilot registry to take part in the discussions & recommendations.
