Printable Summary

The GOCDB data model is comparable to a sub-set of the GLUE2 specification. A current GOCDB requirement is to render the GOCDB data in a GLUE2 compatible format. To achieve this, we have engaged with the GLUE2 working group to help advance the GLUE2 XML rendering. We will provide a status update of this work. In addition, we will also assess the feasibility and requirement of the Regional-Publishing GOCDB model that would involve publishing of EGI scoped data to a parent GOCDB; its main use-case is to allow customisation of the Local scoped data. With the introduction of a GLUE2 rendering, we would like to explore the overlap (if any) between GOCDB and other information systems. We would also like to explore any avenues for interoperability between the different information discovery systems.
