The Annotations Interest Group will hold a working session to examine advances in annotation technologies over the last year including use of annotations in the wild in the biodiversity community, and annotation related activities in the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).  Of particular interest are annotations as sets of assertions and their metadata made on biodiversity data by some consumer of that data.

Agenda: (1) Discussion of data annotation systems in production use in the biodiversity community. (2) Discussion of the W3C Open Annotation Data Model Community Draft (OA) and the new W3C Web Annotation Working Group. (3) A charter for a Task Group for an applicability statement concerning the W3C activities. New participants in the Annotations Interest Group are encouraged.
