WG PID Kernel Information RDA 9th Plenary meeting

Meeting title

PID Kernel Information working meeting

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

PID Kernel Information is a small amount of information (metadata) about a data object to which a PID refers. This associated information generally resides within or in close proximity to the PID resolution system, that is, is separate from domain specific metadata usually residing at the repository where the data object resides. The PID Kernel Information WG aims to converge through a series of discussions and a narrowing process on the smallest number possible of profiles of PID Kernel Information, building on top of the power of the combined RDA Recommendations on PID Information Types and Data Type Registries. 
This will be the first official meeting of this new Working Group, continuing several activities within RDA and external to it, particularly the meetings of the Data Fabric IG at P7 and P8 as well as several extracurricular RDA events. The group aims to fulfill its goals within a 12 month timeframe.

Information will be provided through the group page prior to the Barcelona Plenary:

This meeting is a direct continuation of prior meetings at RDA Plenaries:
RDA P7 session on Data Fabric and Common Components, https://rd-alliance.org/ig-data-fabric.html
RDA P8 session on Data Fabric - PID Centric Configuration Building, https://rd-alliance.org/ig-data-fabric-rda-8th-plenary-meeting

Meeting objectives

* Review the profiles gathered so far and get feedback from the wider RDA community
* Determine the next steps to compile one or a very few core profiles
* Ensure potential practical adoption and applicability of group outputs

Meeting agenda

1. Introduction to the group task and overview of work up to this point
2. Presentation and discussion of collected profiles
3. Review and further refinement of the provenance flagship use case and possible implementations
4. Planning of next steps and operation of the group


The topic at hand is of interest to a variety of stakeholders in the areas of data generation, curation and usage. The group’s outputs should be of use to scientific infrastructure providers, client tool builders and scientific users.

Group chairs serving as contacts: Tobias Weigel

Group maturity: 0-6 months
