RDB2RDF WG agenda for 2010-11-16 meeting 1700 UTC


Below the agenda for our next week's meeting. We will try to get the 'Direct

permitting, we will have a look at some other requirements regarding R2RML,
based on our charter.

4. R2RML - Mapping to Ontologies

>From our charter http://www.w3.org/2009/08/rdb2rdf-charter:

The mapping language specification SHOULD include guidance with regard to
mapping relational data to a subset of OWL such as OWL QL or OWL RL."

5. R2RML - Linked Data aspects

>From our charter http://www.w3.org/2009/08/rdb2rdf-charter:

The mapping language MUST allow for a mechanism to create identifiers for
database entities. The generation of identifiers should be designed to
support the implementation of the linked data principles. Where possible,
the language will encourage the reuse of public identifiers for long-lived
entities such as persons, corporations and geo-locations.
