Greetings

As many of you will be attending the EGU it seems like an opportunity meet to discuss some topics that are relevant to FDSN WG III.
Several of you have contacted me about organizing such a meeting and that is the purpose of sending you this email.

Topics that I think are useful are

1. Federation of FDSN Data Centers
- leveraging the FDSN Web services that are installed at several centers, the possibility exists to create a federated service where an outside user can seamlessly access data from all web see vice enabled centers.
- what are the rules about setting priorities concerning which data center is primary for various datasets
- what are expected levels of performance for a data center to be included in the federated system
- I am sure there are many other things that require discussion

2. Status of FDSN DOIs
- lets review how this system is working and get input from everyone

3. Discussion about adding additional services in the FDSN web services suite.

4. Other topics
- Please send me other items that you wish to discuss.

While this will not be an official working group meeting I do think there will be a large number of WGIII members there and we can take advantage of this time to get together and discuss various WGIII related issues.

Please let me know the following by February 26, 2016

1. Will you be able to attend the meeting
2. topics you would like to have discussed.
3. Identify 5 times during EGU when you will be able to meet

Feel free to reply to the WGIII list so all can see the conversation. fdsn-wg3-products<at>lists.fdsn.org

At the end of this month I will draft an agenda and arrange an appropriately sized room for the WG discussions.

Cheers

    Dear all,

    Excellent idea to meet at EGU, if possible. The topics that you list are
    indeed key issues at present.

    RESIF will be present at EGU.

    Best

    Dear Tim and WG III members,

    this is certainly a good idea to meet at the EGU, the topics you
    suggested as mentioned by Helle are indeed among the most important for
    the moment.

    Regarding your questions:

    > 1. Will you be able to attend the meeting

    Yes, depending on the timing also other ORFEUS/EIDA colleagues may attend

    > 2. topics you would like to have discussed.

    - How to proceed with the Task Forces identified at the Prague meeting
    last year in particular #2 Federated Data Centers and #3 Quality Assurance

    - Completeness of the DOI metadata

    - We may touch also the point mentioned by Joachim Saul on the mailing
    list a few days ago (http://www.fdsn.org/message-center/thread/384/) if
    not addressed on the mailing list already by the time of the meeting.

    > 3. Identify 5 times during EGU when you will be able to meet

    This is still difficult at the moment, tentatively I should be there the
    entire week. I would suggest to wait one more week to have a better idea
    of suitable time slots once the meeting programme will be available
    (http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/egu2016/sessionprogramme).
    Nevertheless if you need to fix already the time slot for the meeting
    please avoid the following dates: 20/04 (08:00-19:00) and 21/04 after 17:00.

    Looking forward to meeting you in Vienna.
    Cheers,
    Angelo
