- how can the community best collaborate on development of vocabularies?
- how should profiles be defined for humans and machines, then linked
to, validated against etc. SHACL is an obvious one but maybe others too?
*Negotiation by profile*
- can data, especially metadata, be offered in a variety of profiles so
that a client can request that data in a specific profile? This is
orthogonal to the question of format or serialization.
- experience shows that the Data Catalog Vocabulary, DCAT, needs
extending, so the workshop uses this as a test case for the above.
Those are the headline topics for a workshop being organised by the
VRE4EIC project and W3C on November 30 - 1 December in Amsterdam. The
hope is that this will lead to a new W3C Working Group to standardize,
or at least provide guidance, on these topics.
The VRE4EIC project (http://www.vre4eic.eu) is concerned with scientific
research data and is building a Virtual Research Environment with
multiple capabilities across multiple Research Infrastructures.
Metadata, profiles and interoperability are therefore of central importance.
Short position papers are required in order to participate in this
workshop. These are not academic papers but descriptions of the problem
you’d like the workshop to discuss and the presentation you would like
to offer. ‘Papers’ can be as simple as a short description of a tool or
service to be demonstrated and the technologies used. Each organization
or individual wishing to participate must submit a position paper
explaining their interest in the workshop by 9 October.
