1-2 October 2012
Washington, D.C, USA
A worldwide interaction of various data practitioners from the US, EU, Australia and other areas has been started to harmonize data access and interoperability solutions. The interactions also includes stakeholders such as NSF, the EC and other research agencies. Two acronyms have been used for this broad bottom-up organized process: DAITF (Data Access and Interoperability Task Force) and DWF (Data Web Forum) both referring to the same intentions - yet it is not clear what name finally will be used and what the governance structure will look like. A first meeting with global participation took place in Copenhagen in March (see www.daitf.org) with about 40 experts from many areas of the world. The first follow-up meeting to the Copenhagen meeting will take place in Washington, D.C. October 1-2, 2012. For all content issues about this Global Data Meeting please look at www.daitf.org.
We have received so much interest in participation that we are afraid of reaching the limits of our space capacities for this next Global Data Meeting very quickly. We will process all registrations until we have reached the capacity limits, but we need to also reserve a few places for the colleagues who were already engaged in Copenhagen and who still may be on vacation. We will inform you as soon as possible whether your registration can be acknowledged.
Please feel free to stay for the Data Consortium: Coming Together Around Data (Data2012 Part 2) meeting that will be held October 2-3, 2012 at the same location. For more information see http://d2i.indiana.edu/data2012/
