Greetings to the SKOS team:
 
I know we (Prof. Wright and myself) are delinquent in reporting on the results of the SKOS-TMF workshop last month at the TKE conference in Copenhagen. For those of you are are not familiar with TMF, it is the common name of an ISO standard (number 16642) that contains requirements for a format to qualify as a TML (terminology markup language).  SKOS does not presently qualify, but we believe that it could if supplemented by a suitable set of extensions. We hope to enter into discussion with the SKOS team soon.  For the moment, I am wondering what are the areas of emphasis of SKOS team members. That is, who is focused on thesauri, who is focused on OWL, etc.  Are there any other terminologists on the team?
 
Cheers,
 
Alan K. Melby, BYU Translation Research Group and member of the US delegation to ISO Techical Committee 37 (from whence came TMF)

Hi all,

Just to give a quick update, last week was DC2005 where we had a plenary presentation [1] and a tutorial [2] on SKOS Core. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive, although there are clearly a number of issues still to straighten out, especially relating to multilinguality, and the interaction between SKOS Core and OWL.

Wrt the 2nd review, Ralph's told me he's almost completed his review of the changes proposed at [3], so I hope we can tie that up asap.

Hope you're all well :)

Cheers,

Al.
