Date & time: Wednesday 2nd March - 11:00 - 12:30 - Working Meeting Session 4
Meeting title: DFT IG Breakout Sessions expanding vocabulary coverage and services

Agreed upon terminology, the meaning of terms used in discussion, is an important aspect of all group work. The DFT IG task is 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.
We invite all RDA groups to submit and discuss their core terminology and relate these to terms already stored in our Term Tool (TeD-T).
In addition we will discuss the process of vocabulary development and how to make vocabularies useful to the RDA and related communities. Governance plans will also be discussed.

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

This meeting will help continue the synchronization of RDA conceptualization and enable better understanding within and between RDA groups. In addition improvements in the depth of definitions will be pursued to better synchronize conceptualization, enable better understanding within and between communities and stimulate tool building.

The following is the working agenda for the DFT Breakout session at P7
An Overview of the DFT IG, Case Statement & the Breakout Session- 
Explaining additions to the DFT vocabulary & overview of the Ted-T tool to capture vocabularies and alliance with related efforts such as RDA Vocabulary Services IG.
Liaison relation to other RDA IGs and WGs & Solicitation of ideas for additional Use Cases and candidate vocabulary items from: 

MIG and related RDA work
Data fabric 
Practical policy
Data Publishing Workflow

The meeting will include presentations about these and general discussion including plans for expanding vocabularies.

Potentially all RDA groups could be targeted, but especially those completing or where vocabulary issues have been raised such as in the Data Fabric group or within groups where there the concepts of data sets and data collections are important..
We expect to have continued discussion with:
MIG and related RDA work
Data fabric 
Practical policy
Domain Repositories
Data Publishing Workflow groups as well as other groups participating in past sessions.
