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 (e.g. AnnoSys-GBIF integration, FilteredPush-Symbiota integration), and annotation-related activities in the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).  Of particular interest are annotations as sets of assertions concerning quality of biodiversity data.


  1. Reports on data annotation systems in production use in the biodiversity community.
  2. Discussion of activities in the W3C Web Annotation Working Group https://www.w3.org/annotation/.
  3. Updates on a Task Group for an applicability statement concerning the W3C activities.
  4. Expressing data quality assertions in the Framework for Data Quality as annotations.

New participants in the Annotations Interest Group are encouraged.
