Dagstuhl workshop, 22 October, 2012
Various stages of the DDI lifecycle, including (but not limited to):
Alistair Hamilton, ABS
From Canberra meeting:
a) Development of a bare-bones model - Wendy Thomas volunteered to outline this model, and Jay Greenfield has volunteered to compare that to his existing NCS use cases
b) Review paper on existing standards that might form a starting point for DDI (or that DDI could provide external reference to) - Herve, I'm not sure if you indicated you could work on this??
c) Development of a set of detailed use cases for process metadata requirements across various DDI "user types".
- Data archives (UKDA/ICPSR/ADA) to develop a common "archive processing" use case, based on Herve's initial email
- NSIs, based around recent work on GSIM
- "Data lifecycle" usecases - eg. "data collection", "longitudinal data", "administrative data" - from those with a particular interest in these sections of the lifecycle
d) Development of a working paper outlining the broad requirements of a DDI process model and relevant elements - Requirements, Possible Usecases and Potential Solutions (integrating a-c)
e) Establishment of a formal DDI working group - Steve to discuss with Mary Vardigan
