Work Packages

WP11 - Common vision

Prepare on ID1101

WP13 Coordination of common standards

WP14 - Common testing environments

DG said there is a document on WP14 which proposes how we can map the landscapes on different techniques. ACTION ALL Please add details of related projects and how they relate to APARSEN.

WP15 - Internal workshops, symposia and events

DG advised that anyone can edit the action list by following the 'Action Tracker' information. RvH sent an e-mail to DG about how the face to face meeting at the APA conference can be connected to a number of work package workshops. DG pointed out that the draft agenda for the meeting on the 10 November requested ideas for the agenda. ACTION RvH To add an action to the list for everyone to add information on the management web site. ALL Please let DG have ideas for the All Hands Meeting agenda on the 10 November after the APA conference

WP16 - Common tools, software repository and marketplace

WP22 - Identifiers and citability

Angela Fogarolli reported that the goal of survey they circulated to all the partners to understand how they were managing digital objects in their respective organisations and the problems and issues that are important to them. The first analysis was done and, based on this, it was decided to look at the interoperability framework. The document was produced outlining some basic scenarios and it was noticed that there was already a problem about defining the scope of the framework itself. They decided to write some user case scenarios based on the main topics i.e. citability measurements and authenticity and hope to receive a lot of feedback and, as a result, may well end up being re-written. It is anticipated this will be completed by the end of August/beginning of September. ACTION ALL DG uploaded the document on the Wiki in WP22 - everyone to take a look at this and add their input.

WP24 - Authenticity and Provenance

Silvio Salza reported that this deliverable is due in Month 14 but they intend to complete this before that date. They will post the outline on the Wiki in order to get some feedback from the partners - they are especially interested in 'best practice' about handling authenticity and would like to solicit more involvement with partners directly involved in WP24. SS will send out a message tomorrow with an outline of their proposal on the Wiki.

WP26 Annotation, reputation and data quality

WP33 - Peer review and 3rd party certification of repositories

DG reported that the final versions of the standard will be sent to ISO for publication very shortly and will then send the reports to the individual repositories summarising the findings.
