Fall 2013 CNI Member MeetingResearch Data Alliance

VisionResearchers and innovators openly share data across technologies, disciplines, and countries to address the grand challenges of society.

MissionRDA builds the social and technical bridges that enable open sharing of data.

breaking down or crossing those barriers across culture, scale, and technology

note that word infrastructure, we must be cautious of it and how it is used. it is not very precise here.

One way to think about it is like how Dan Briklen doesThe RDA Community today: Over 1000 members from 55 countries

First RDA Infrastructure Deliverables in 2014 (1)Data Type Registries WGDefining a system of data type registriesDefining a formal model for describing types and building a working model of a registry.To be adopted by CNRI, International DOI Foundation, and used by the Deep Carbon Observatory and others(working in conjunction with PID group) Scheduled to complete Summer, 2014Persistent Identifier Information TypesDefining a minimal set of types that must be associated with a PID (e.g. checksum, author). Specifying an API for interaction with PID typesAdopted and used by Data Conservancy and DKRZ (working in conjunction with DTR group) Scheduled to complete Summer, 2014

Metadata StandardsCreating use cases and prototype directory of current metadata standards from starting point of DCC directory and stakeholder contributions.To be hosted and used by JISC, DataOne and othersScheduled to complete Fall, 2014

Practical PolicySurvey of policies in production use across data management centers. Test bed of machine-actionable policies (IRODS, DataVerse, dCache) at RENCI, DataNet Federation Consortium, CESNET, Odum Institute. Deployment of 5 policy sets (integrity, access control, replication, provenance / event tracking, publication ) on test beds. Publication of standard policies for use as starter kits.Scheduled to complete Summer, 2014First RDA Infrastructure Deliverables in 2014 (2)Data Categories and CodesOperationalization of ISO language categories for repositoriesAdopted and used by the Language Archive, PARADISECProposal of data categories associated with the CMDI schema as ISO standards.Scheduled to complete Fall, 2014Data Foundations and TerminologyDefining a common vocabulary for data terms based on existing models. Creating formal definitions in a structured vocabulary too which also provides an open registry for data terms.(active input from all RDA WGs)Tested and adopted by EUDAT, DKRZ, Deep Carbon Observatory, CLARIN, EPOS, and othersScheduled to complete Summer, 2014
