Specifications language for mapping relational data and relational database schemas into RDF and OWL, tentatively called the RDB2RDF Mapping Language, R2RML:  http://www.w3.org/2009/08/rdb2rdf-charter

4.1 Deliverables (1st phase)

Pinning down the scope of mapping support expressible in our target R2RML language
*       Model to support vendor extensions to SQL data types
*       Finalizing the list of serialization format that will be supported
*       Decide on rule engine and RIF support
*       Decide on which OWL subset to be supported
*       Decide on what is needed to support linked data principals
4.2 Schedule (1st phase):

* Review/presentations to some of the existing RDB2RDF implementations by late November/early December, 2009.
* Producing a document sharing the WG position from the above open issues - TBD (say by end of March 2010).

4.3 Background reading:

*       The RDB2RDF XG report: http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/rdb2rdf/XGR-rdb2rdf-20090126/
*       There will be series of presentations from existing commercial/research implementations, and there will be relevant documentation made available from every speaker (http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/rdb2rdf/wiki/Initial_Round_of_Presentations) around a week before their presentation.  Current scheduled speakers includes, but not necessarily in that order :
*       Tripify (Soeren)
*       OpenLink Software (Orri)
*       D2R (Richard)
*       Metatomix (Howard)
