VocBench 3 day, 22nd November 2016, UniversitätsBibliothek of Göttingen,
Germany, co-located with the 10th International Conference on Metadata and
Semantics Research (MTSR 2016) 


Funded by the ISA2 program of the EU, VocBench 3 (aka VB3) is an effort to
develop a platform for collaborative editing of OWL ontologies, SKOS and
SKOSXL thesauri, and other datasets based on information models of the RDF
family, with particular emphasis on collaboration and multilingualism.

VocBench 3 follows the path led by its previous incarnations: VocBench,
originally developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United
Nations (FAO of the UN) for maintenance of the AGROVOC thesaurus, and
VocBench 2, developed by University of Rome Tor Vergata - jointly with FAO -
as a general purpose platform for collaborative editing of SKOSXL thesauri. 

VocBench 3 will be developed by University of Rome Tor Vergata, with an
entirely new user interface and a largely revised backend architecture: VB3
aims at improving the capabilities of its predecessors, with an
unconstrained RDF editing environment, dedicated support for the OWL, SKOS
and SKOSXL standards, more agile user interaction and an extensible

The objective of the VB3 day is to bring together existing stakeholders and
new interested users, expose the roadmap which has been laid down for the
project, detailing established modeling and technological choices, show a
first demo of the system and gather further precious feedback for the future
of the platform The meeting will also be a networking event for people and
organizations developing thesauri and ontologies, allowing them to share
their knowledge and experiences, and an occasion for interacting in person
with the VocBench team.

The VocBench 3 day will be co-located with the 10th International Conference
on Metadata and Semantics Research (MTSR 2016) as a pre-event on the 22nd of
November. The meeting does not require a registration fee, but can host only
a limited number of attendants. We thus ask interested participants to
register as soon as possible through the workshops web page in order to
facilitate the organization of the workshop.
