I think a focus on GUIDs for ecological and environmental montitoring
and experimental data would be good.  Ricardo wrote to me about this
topic before but I was unable to respond at the time.  Nevertheless, I
would be happy to participate in such a group, and even take some
responsibility if others are interested.  Anyone else interested in this

>     Dear GUID-1 Workshop Participants,
>     On the 2nd day of our workshop, we are planning on having two
> breakout groups to discuss in parallel the specific needs of different
> data domains regarding GUIDs. So far we have two breakout groups planned:
> - Taxonomic Names and Concepts, to be convened by Jessie Kennedy (thanks
> Jessie for kindly accepting our invitation!), and
> - Specimen and Collection Data, to be convened by me.
>     So I have some requests regarding the breakout groups:
> 1) Please choose the group you would like to participate based on your
> work and affinity. I will make a headcount (probably via a show of
> hands) on the first day of the workshop so we can allocate the
> appropriate room for each group.
> 2) We need volunteers to take notes about our discussions and the
> decisions we make during the breakout and the main sessions. We need at
> least one volunteer for each breakout session and one or more to take
> notes during the main sessions. We need to know who the volunteers will
> be before the meeting.
> 3) If you feel that we should have additional breakout groups to discuss
> specific needs of other data domains (ecological, observation, and
> genomic data, for example), please let me know as soon as possible, so
> we can discuss the possibility and make the appropriate arrangements
> (recruit a convener, a secretary, and participants, allocate a room, etc).
>     Thank you very much for your help.
>     Best regards,
