An unfortunate clash in the schedule for P10

06 Sep 2017

Members of the RDA DMP interest group & the DMP working groups:
I and the the other group co-chairs are looking forward to joining
some of you at the forthcoming plenary in Montreal, and particularly
to the joint session on Wednesday with the domain repositories IG.
Unfortunately it seems we have a clash with what appears to be
a pertinent BoF session. I didn't spot this clash early enough to ask
the RDA Secretariat to reschedule one or other session.
The BoF in question is titled "Data Management Records and Persistent
identifiers". Its premise is that DMPs are static documents, but
should instead be active machine-actionable objects and that PIDs are
a necessary component of them. This will be familiar to members of
this group. The BoF case statement says it has overlap with the
Active DMP IG but I'm not aware of where that overlap is - can anyone
here clarify?
The session description for the BoF is here:
