Update on tasks

Objectives of this meeting are:

  • work on tasks and identify new tasks
  • 2024 meeting schedule:
    • frequency: fewer "scheduled" meetings - one every 4 months should be sufficient
    • format: a round table discussion is a meeting
      • where experts gather together in order to discuss a particular topic
      • involving several people who talk about something as equals
      • face-to-face/hybrid
    • duration: has to be e.g. 1000-1600 to make travel worthwhile
  • but still with option for dedicated meetings

Update on tasks

Completed tasks

  • Draft specification for service definitions is open for consultation

Ongoing tasks

Artefacts to describe services
Service Definitions
  • ICAO Job Card progress
    • draft concept is available - it is aligned with our approach
  • supporting material needs identified:
    • can already recuperate some of the Service Design Activities work
    • guidance on registration aspects would be appreciated, taking into account the work of the ICAO Information Management Panel
    • guidance on quality of service and quality of data
      • It is proposed to explain the options available to implementers using supporting material e.g. publishing exact figures or schedules of outages etc.
    • templates - these can evolve from Service Definition Template if any changes are needed
Service Overviews

Service Descriptions

Service Metadata Schema
  • The "candidate" status allows upload without validation so there is no longer a need for a "service candidate schema".

    • quality of data
      • that can serve as start of the supporting material.

  • it would be good to start collecting experiences on service developments from SSCONE-SITCOM members
