Work Package 22: Monthly Status Report

November 2012

Progress and achievements this month

According to the HLEG inputs the IF was refined and the demonstrator implementation was designed. The basic steps of the early demonstrator consist in: a) engaging a small number of content providers( CERN, DANS, FRD, DNB, and others) that have adopted trust PI like DOI or NBN and collecting metadata of objects and authors from their repositories b) introducing ORCID identifiers for the same authors c)mapping such metadata onto FRBRoo ontologies d) generate new semantic relation among objects and authors data managed by different institutions through D2R tool e)providing some atomic services based on SPARQL according to the DE22.2 in f) implementing a final user interfaces to exploit such services This first release of the demonstrator aims to show the validity of the approach and the potentiality of the relations. The second release will deal with the architecture issues to set up a stable exposition of the metadata though the FRBRoo ontology and services development and testing for user satisfaction. The demonstrator results will be presented at International Workshop Interoperability of Persistent Identifiers Systems - Learning how to bring them together - Florence, 13 December 2012

Work Package 25: Monthly Status Report

November 2012

Progress and achievements this month

This month we concentrated on the activities related to D25.1 At first we integrated the material prepared by ESA on semantic interoperability in the domain of Earth Science. Then we enriched the structure of D25.1 (interoperability initiatives, scenarios and challenges, services) and then we identified where each WP participant could contribute. We circulated the new deliverable and now we are receiving contributions from the involved partners. An integrated and consolidated version of the D25.1 will be prepared and circulated soon.

Any delays, problems or risks

Some contributions have not arrived yet. We have contacted them personally and we have set a new deadline for them.

Meetings held (face-to-face or virtual)

Collaboration by email (for collecting the contributions). After completing this round, we will schedule a WP25 MegaMeeting to present the status of the D25.1 and plan the next steps to complete it (hopefully by Christmas).

Status of deliverables

Both (D25.1 and D25.2) proceed according to the schedule. The latest versions are on the wiki page. We expect to have a new version of D25.1 the first/second week of December.
