  • Members of our group have suggested that, at this meeting, we might extend further our discussions of previous years, in which we have begun to articulate the sorts of collaboration activities, partnerships, shared services and infrastructures, and beyond that would further support and enhance our training activities.   Points of this discussion, and those prior, will be drawn into an agenda for our 2016 meeting, at DH2016 in Kraków.  Please be in touch with Ray Siemens (siemens@uvic.ca) with agenda items for the 2016 meeting.
