W3C announced today Smart Descriptions & Smarter Vocabularies (SDSVoc) Workshop, 30 November – 1 December 2016, in Amsterdam, hosted by CWI and organized in conjunction with the EU funded project VRE4EIC.
This workshop aims to clarify the steps needed to improve communication between data repositories and applications that use that data, such as virtual research environments. Applications may simply discover data or visualize it, manipulate it, discuss it, correct it, describe it, republish it, etc. The outcome may be a new W3C Working Group chartered to extend "DCAT" and determine how human and machine-readable metadata profiles are defined and made discoverable. A further aim is to explore how W3C can best support vocabulary development for a variety of communities.
W3C membership is not required to participate. The event is open to all, subject to registration and the capacity of the venue. Position statements will be required to secure a speaking slot, due by 9 October 2016.

CWI with support from the VRE4EIC project
The workshop will cover a variety of related issues: how to manage a vocabulary in a collaborative environment, how to define an application profile for human and machine consumption, how to request data using a specific profile and, as a prime example of all this - experiences of using "DCAT" that might lead to its extension.
