ICSU-WDS Establishes Two Working Groups
At its 7th Meeting (held 1–2 November 2012, in Taipei), the WDS Scientific Committee took the historic decision to establish WDS Working Groups (WGs) in order to realize three leading-edge services considered to add value to the wider scientific community:
- A WDS Open Metadata Catalogue
- A searchable WDS Scalable Knowledge Network
- A community-based Data Publication and Curation Service
After polling WDS Members for their feedback on these services, we are pleased to announce that the initial charters and memberships of two WGs—in the first stage, the Open Metadata Catalogue and Knowledge Network WGs are combined—are now available (please click on the relevant link above).
