IPR workshop: draft documents for download

The draft documents for peer review at the SCA IPR and Licensing Excellence Gateway Workshop on Monday 3 November 2008 have now been removed as they will undergo further revision following the peer review session.

Further documents will be available here shortly. If you have specific comments or enquiries relating to the SCA and IPR please contact Naomi Korn at naomi@naomikorn.com

Upcoming peer review workshop: SCA Standards Guide

A peer review workshop for a new SCA Standards Guide will be held on Wednesday, 3 December, 10.30-15.00 at the JISC Meeting Rooms in London. The event will bring together some of the UK’s leading experts in this field – providing an opportunity to share ideas and network in addition to being a “critical friend” to the guide.

The guide has been developed to add context to the JISC Information Environment Standards Catalogue generally and some key standards that affect cultural heritage, health, education/research and public service broadcasting specifically. A DRAFT copy of the guide is available and it would be appreciated if you could consider sending a standards expert to peer review the document. This will include identifying any gaps and recommending any additional supplementary work in this area. The SCA will, in cases where delegates cannot fund travel, reimburse standard class rail travel and economy class flights to London. A buffet lunch and light refreshments will be provided.

OKS workshop on finding and re-using public information

The Open Knowledge Foundation is holding a workshop on finding and re-using public information on 1 November 2008 at the London Knowledge Lab. Co-organised with the Office of Public Sector Information (OPSI), the Power of Information (POI) Taskforce and mySociety, this informal, hands-on workshop will bring government information experts together with those who are interested in finding and re-using government information. In addition to focused discussions about legal and technological aspects of re-use, government information assets will be documented and tagged on CKAN, a registry of knowledge resources.
