This release makes a few additions based on current experience with CERIF usage. On the other hand, the use of some attributes in the model is deprecated - these attributes will go away in a future release. The more appropriate way of expressing the information now is using a classification or federated identifiers.

See below for a detailed list of changes.

Update on forthcoming euroCRIS events

Three years after our last on-site membership meeting – the Autumn 2019 membership meeting in Münster – we are happy to announce that the Autumn 2022 membership meeting will be held at the Van der Valk Hotel in Nijmegen from Nov 30 to Dec 2, 2022. A draft event website will be released soon and linked from this paragraph. In the meantime an invitation has been sent to euroCRIS members to contribute their suggestions for presentations of the projects they are running in the research information management domain – the deadline for submissions is Oct 31, 2022.

The programme for the membership meeting will provide an update on the ongoing activity in the discipline, with a focus on developments currently taking place in the Netherlands. A session will also be devoted to discuss the recently kicked-off FAIRCORE4EOSC – in whose Advisory Board euroCRIS is represented – and FAIR-IMPACT under the EOSC umbrella.

Earlier this year we already held the mid-May CRIS2022 conference in Dubrovnik (Croatia) as a fairly well-attended on-site-only event. For those RIM community members who weren't able to attend the event, the CRIS2022 presentations have been made openly available in the euroCRIS repository. A selected number of these CRIS2022 contributions will be included in the conference proceedings to be published later this year in a special issue of Procedia Computer Science.
