Registry Community Workshop

Novotel, York

Friday 24 July

Programme | Venue | Workshop home page


Welcome - Coffee/Pastries
1000-1040 Mapping the metadata registry environment - reporting back on a survey of the current state of the art for metadata registries, present developments, the range of use cases that have arisen, and the interoperability needs for registry developers.
1100-1230 A look at current metadata registry software and approaches to metadata management (Round-robin - participants are welcomed to introduce their involvement/interest in the area in a brief presentation)
1230-1300 A straw man discover each other's content, and use it to develop connections - how far does machine-to-machine level reuse take us, confronted with issues such as internationalisation and localisation?
Lunch and informal discussion
1415-1600 Another straw man / discussion We'd ideally like to transition this into a brief discussion of peoples' requirements and priorities, so that this can be turned into a set of recommendations and perhaps some practical engagement in terms of setting up test beds and the like.
Pauses for coffee, tea and other refreshments will be worked in throughout the day!
