Hi Alistair,

I have viewed the slides and read the article but one question still remained not absolutely clear. As I understand it, DC defines metadata to describe resources and SKOS is a language for representing thesauri and other knowledge organization systems, but what is the principal connection between DC and SKOS, which, as I assume, must have been the focus of the presentation and of the paper?

Thanks
Ilya

Hi all,

I presented "SKOS: Requirements for Standardization" at the Dublin Core conference, the slides are at:

http://isegserv.itd.rl.ac.uk/public/skos/press/dc2006/presentation.pdf

... the full paper is at:

http://isegserv.itd.rl.ac.uk/public/skos/press/dc2006/camera-ready-paper.pdf

... in case you're wondering about the "it will all end in tears" bullet, that's a *joke* :) ... I began the talk with a story about a project I worked on a while ago where everybody would argue all the time, sometimes getting extremely frustrated - the point of the story was just to say that, in my experience, most disagreements are not disagreements at all, and arise because people are actually trying to solve different problems or answer different questions - the moral of the story being that we need to be absolutely clear about what problem we want to solve with SKOS!

Cheers,

Alistair.
