[Apologies for cross-postings. Please forward this mail to anyone

W3C Semantic Web Deployment Working Group

Call for Use Cases: Simple Knowledge Organization Systems (SKOS)

Are you currently using SKOS, or considering using SKOS in the near
future? If so, please tell us more by filling in the questionnaire below
and sending it back to us or to public-swd-wg@w3.org, preferably before
January 14th, 2007. 

The information you provide will be influential in guiding the further
development of SKOS towards W3C Recommendation status.

We understand that your time is precious, so please don't feel you have
to answer every question. However, the more information you can provide,
the easier it will be for the Working Group to understand your
requirements. Questions marked with an asterix (*) are more important.
And, of course, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any
trouble answering our questions. A FAQ page will be maintained on
http://www.w3.org/2006/07/SWD/wiki/UCFAQ, and a description example is
available at http://www.w3.org/2006/07/SWD/wiki/ManuscriptsCase.

We are particularly interested in use cases describing the use of
controlled structured vocabularies in distributed, metadata-driven
applications. This includes the use of thesauri, classification schemes,
subject heading systems and taxonomies to facilitate discovery and
retrieval of information. This also includes situations where two or
more vocabularies must be "mapped" or "linked" in order to provide
applications using heterogeneous metadata from different sources.

However, we're not ruling anything out at this stage, and the Working
Group will carefully consider all submissions we receive.

On behalf of the Working Group, thanks in advance for your time,

Antoine Isaac (aisaac@few.vu.nl), Jon Phipps (jphipps@madcreek.com) and
Daniel Rubin (dlrubin@stanford.edu)
