SEMIC.EU Newsletter July 2009


Dear Paola Di Maio,

despite Brussels and much of Europe being in the middle of the summer
break, there is much to announce with this newsletter:

among other news, a new SEMIC.EU community on European police
cooperation, a milestone in the repository asset count and interesting
new projects and assets in the "Did you know" section.

On top of that, the Director General for Informatics of the European
Commission, Francisco García Morán, assesses the achievements of
SEMIC.EU in a new welcome statement.

Aldo Laudi, SEMIC.EU Project Officer

New SEMIC.EU community tackles interoperability in European police work


A new cooperative community has been set up at the Semantic
Interoperability Centre Europe: The development of a data framework
for European police cooperation will now be coordinated via SEMIC.EU.

Its work builds on the experience from a pilot project that brought
together law enforcement professionals from the Netherlands, Germany
and Sweden. The new community sets out to develop a "Universal
Messaging Format".

The community is open for participation by interested parties from all
European countries.

User request: A European NIEM-style information sharing network?


Are there any initiatives in Europe similar to the American NIEM
framework, Mr Thomas Knape asks in the forum. NIEM is an overall
information sharing framework complementing the specific data exchange
initiatives in the legal and law enforcement areas.

Mr Knape stresses his interest for the conceptual information sharing
approach taken for the development of NIEM.

If you know of such initiatives or can share experience on related
activities in Europe, please do so by replying to the request!

"XJustiz" – the 200th interoperability asset


There are now more than 200 assets in the SEMIC.EU repository. No. 200
is a building block for fully-fledged electronic legal relations which
has some potential for reuse. It offers standards for data like the
addresses of trial participants and data on scheduled sessions.

Developed by the Commission for Data Processing and Rationalisation of
the German federal government and state governments, the standard is
recommended for use in electronic communication on legal matters
throughout Germany.

Did you know that...


the Committee of European Banking Supervisors provides XBRL taxonomy
representations for its COREP and FINREP reporting frameworks?
an open Community of Practice has been established in the UK to
exchange information on semantic technologies in public
the Austrian SeGoF project develops ontology-based eGovernment forms?

State code lists: Workshop with the German Statistics office


With a workshop in September, the German Federal Statistics Office,
Destatis, authorities and vendors will commence service-oriented
semantic modifications for commonly used code lists.

First up is Destatis' codelist for states, external territories and
citizenship which has been in use for many years.

A special focus will be on historisation, i.e. the representation of
territorial and political changes over time. The country of birth, for
instance, must be representable even if it does not exist in its
former state anymore. The workshop is organised in the framework of
the "Deutschland Online" Standardisation initiative.
