As I pre-announced it Monday, the Web Ontology Working Group has
published a set of 5 Last Call Documents about OWL, a Web Ontology
Language based on RDF:
"""The OWL Web Ontology Language is designed for use by applications
that need to process the content of information instead of just
presenting information to humans. OWL facilitates greater machine
readability of Web content than that supported by XML, RDF, and RDF
Schema by providing additional vocabulary along with a formal semantics.
OWL has three increasingly-expressive sublanguages: OWL Lite, OWL DL,
and OWL Full."""

The only properly normative document is OWL Reference
(http://www.w3.org/TR/owl-ref/) and that would be the one on which our
review should focus, if any. Interestingly for us, this set of 5 LC is
completed by a WD with test cases for OWL.
The Last Call review ends on May 9.

Another Last Call has been published by the Vocie Browser WG, "Semantic
Interpretation for Speech Recognition":
"""This document defines the process of Semantic Interpretation for
Speech Recognition and the syntax and semantics of semantic
interpretation tags that can be added to speech recognition grammars to
compute information to return to an application on the basis of rules
and tokens that were matched by the speech recognizer"""

The Voice Browser WG was one of the groups to which we presented our GL
during the last technical plenary, and with which we had a short joint
meeting on their test efforts. It would be a good occasion to pursue our
liaison with them to comment on their draft. The Last Call periods ends
on May 2nd.

Please have a look at these documents and feel free to volunteer even
before next telecon on Monday ;)
