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 fields of the applied sciences. 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 aims to apply persistent identification to instrument instances and develop a community driven metadata schema and recommendation for implementing persistent identification of instruments in existing PID infrastructure. During this meeting, we will present a first draft proposal for the metadata schema. The primary objective is to discuss the proposal and obtain feedback from the community.
