RE: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig][rda-wdinterop-wg][rda-agrisemantics-wg][rda-rice-wg][on-farm-data-sharing-wg][metrics-indicators-agriculture][agriculturecapacitydev] News about the IGAD chairs

Dear Imma, all,
It's been a great and rewarding experience being part of the Interest Group on Agricultural Data and following the various working groups.
Unfortunately, like Imma said, due to incompatibilities with the characteristics of my work as an academic researcher, I have to interrupt it, for the respect that I give to the role of being a co-chair and the expectancies that it implies.
I want to thank personally Imma, Patricia and Esther for being such a wonderful team to work with. And, obviously, the warm community that has gathered around this group.

News about the IGAD chairs

Dear IGAD Community Members,
It is time to express our gratitude to the IGAD co-chairs Esther Dzale and Armando Stellato, for their valuable contributions to this community during the last two years. Due to their tight agendas and portfolios, Esther and Armando's involvement as co-chairs of IGAD are unfortunately coming to an end, but they will continue very much involved in the RDA activities around agriculture and semantics.

Drones and Data Flight week

Hi all,
For those of you planning on being at IDW the RDA Drone Data Group is
running a flying hackathon the preceding week that I think would be of
interest to some here. We've themed it along: Earth Science, Agriculture,
and Conservation, and are planning on testing sensors and data analytics
tools over some novel flora and fauna biomes, and working on the broader
drone-data management questions. See the webpage
for more information
and the application form but in brief
*When:* October 28 to Friday, November 2, 2018.

Is anybody attending the AgriGHG 2018 meeting (International conference on
