Working Group Collaboration Meeting Karlsruhe

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology 
Kaiserstraße 12
76131 Karlsruhe, Germany
Campus Süd, 
Präsidiumsgebäude 11.30, Senatssaal

This is a continuation of a working meeting series that was started in Garching in February 2014 and in Gaithersburg in November 2014. 
The objective is to have focused discussion among participants:  something which has proved elusive at the packed RDA Plenary meetings, and to generate discussion on how coordination amongst WGs can achieve
more coherence and can improve overall RDA outputs. 
The foci of the June meeting will be on 
  • interaction between the Data Fabric and Data Publishing coordination groups and their related WGs and IGs
  • facilitate adoption questions from amongst IG attendees 
  • build connections between the technically oriented data provisioning and data consumer groups, and social/policy oriented data provisioning and data consumer groups
This format will allow for a detailed update from the next wave of working group outputs:  those of RDA/WDS Data Publishing coordination group.  Additionally, each participant will be invited to update on the current status of the represented group(s) in relation to the above topics.
Note that RDA/US has limited funding to support U.S. participant travel to these meetings. Contact Larry Lannom ( to request support.
