This working group (members) for CDI concerns a broadly defined and broadly applicable set of technology (the "stack of technology") that can be used to promote the ability of project-level workers to manage and use data and processing services and tools that are readily found and used by others. Part of this effort is to promote interoperability between individual services in order to help scientists pursue more integrated science.
