The Data Documentation Initiative Alliance has recently announced the
public review of their new specification, DDI – Cross Domain Integration
(DDI-CDI). In order to introduce potential reviewers to the specification,
webinars will be held on Tuesday, 16 June 2020 at 14:00 UTC and on
Thursday, 18 June at 07:00 UTC. Attendees are asked to register using one
of the links below. The specification will be introduced, followed by a
discussion period, with each the webinar lasting for an hour.

DDI-CDI is a model-driven specification that is designed to provide support
for the wide range of data which are becoming increasingly significant for
the Social, Behavioral, and Economic (SBE) sciences, but often come from
new sources outside the SBE domain, and often use non-traditional data
structures. Such unfamiliar data also demands increased information about
provenance, especially the processes by which they were created. Based on
the DDI 4/Moving Forward work, DDI-CDI is designed to meet these emerging
needs for the integration of data in old and new forms, coming from a
variety of domains.

Cross Domain (Data) Integration is particularly important for grand
challenge research areas that necessarily combine data of many types and
provenance, including infectious disease research, disaster risk reduction,
resilient cities research, climate change mitigation and adaptation and so
on. CODATA  <https://codata.org/>sees great potential in DDI-CDI as a
contribution to the International Science Council <https://council.science/>
-endorsed Decadal Programme ‘Making Data Work for Cross-Domain Grand
Consequently, CODATA through the Decadal Programme will partner with DDI in
the public review process, assisting in getting feedback on the
specification from different domains and use cases.

The DDI-CDI specification is available both as a formal UML model and as an
XML syntax representation of that model and is designed to align with both
existing DDI specifications and other popular standards. Being model based,
it is intended to support a wide range of technology platforms and tools.
This webinar will help potential adopters provide critical feedback to make
sure that it can meet these goals.
