From the announcement:
The Forum will examine potential near-term actions and outcomes that can serve as a focus for community efforts toward a global organization for the exchange of scientific data, initially referred to as the Data Web Forum (DWF). The BRDI Forum will facilitate discussion of the following questions:1. What useful short-term efforts and deliverables could a global scientific community organization take on that would facilitate data-driven interoperability? Are there any low-hanging fruits or some common elements or approaches that should be addressed early in the process?2. What stakeholder communities are essential to success or to the implementation of the deliverables raised in #1? (see  below) What could be done in the near term by such an organization to promote effective participation by these communities?
On the day of the event, a link will be posted on the National Academies website (www.nationalacademies.org). Webcast listeners will be able to listen either through Windows Media Player or through RealPlayer.
