ODaF report on St-Helena, CA Meeting (Sep 13-15)

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

A strategic ODaF meeting was held on September 13-15, 2007 at Director Bob Glushko’s St. Helena Conference Center (California, USA). The intent of the meeting was to discuss current work and brain-storm ideas for future projects.

Due to limited space, only Directors, Advisors, and Managers were invited to the meeting, along with a few presenters from outside the organization. The event was attended by participants from Adobe, the Dutch Data Archive (DANS), the Canada Research Data Centre (RDC), the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Swivel, the UK Data Archive (UKDA), along with directors, advisors and managers of the Open Data Foundation.

The meeting agenda and report can be downloaded below. Note that the minutes do not capture all of the discussions which took place, but attempt to describe the course of the meeting and to list ideas and action items for follow-up.

ODaF wishes to express its thanks to Director Bob Glushko, who – in addition to giving us his insight as a director – made the meeting possible by giving us the use of his conference center, providing food and drink, and in all ways acting as a gracious host. Everyone was suitably impressed with the facilities and surroundings, which provided an excellent working atmosphere.
