Meeting title RDA P8 workshop DFT IG Breakout Session

Please give a short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group

Agreed upon terminology, the meaning of terms used in discussion, remains an important aspect of all RDA group work. The DFT IG task has been to continue the discussion evoked by the RDA DFT WG to support continuing RDA efforts regarding basic data concepts & framework models along with their vocabularies. A key aspect of the work is to support broader model and vocabulary agreements for and across these RDA WGs and IGs along with their representative communities and stakeholders.

Please provide additional links to informative material related to your group i.e. group page, Case statement, working documents etc


Please list the meeting objectives

This will help continue the synchronization of RDA conceptualization and enable better understanding within and between RDA groups and provide updates on the term tool operation and functionality.
It will allow newer groups to present their vocabularies and issues to the group and discuss relations to other groups and their definitions

In addition. improvements in the depth of definitions will be discussed to support better synchronize conceptualization, 
enable better understanding within and between communities and
stimulate tool building and terminological services such as mapping between vocabularies and finding similar terms.
