As an Early Career Interest Group membre, I was involved in a Working Group reporting process. It was my first experience with this mission and I hope that my participation was positive for all the WG agrisemantic members. For me, it was a great opportunity to be linked with RDA agricltural researchers and I hope new collaborative projects from my participation.

RDA P13 in Philadelphia was excellently organised and many sessions, meeting opportunities and original kind of participation and interaction were offered.
I hereby would like to share some of my experiences there :
A session from the interest group I am co-Chairing (SHARC)
A session from a newly created group on ethics and social aspects of data science
A BoF session on health data
The beginning of April 2019 marked also the week of the 13th RDA Plenary that took place in Philadelphia, USA. Once again, this major biannual event of all research data aficionados attracted 433 participants from 33 countries, who spent their time in more than 60 sessions, working meetings, BoFs and, of course, lots of caffeine-driven discussions in the halls of the Loews Hotel.
The last breakout slot of Thirteenth RDA Plenary Meeting saw a joint meeting between some long-running groups with a shared interest in metadata: the Metadata Interest Group, the Metadata Standards Catalog Working Group and the Data In Context Interest Group.
Plenary 13 in Philadelphia was already (!) my 5th as participant, and 4th as group chair of the Agrisemantics Working Group.
