Hi Ghislain,

Yes, I think it is a good idea to have an event-based approach to model parliamentary proceedings documents, as each document is indeed an output of an event, the Parliamentary meeting.

I am considering it as a future work. For now, I am focusing on how to represent each document. As I already said the previous project, PoliticalMashup, did a great job by making implicit structure and semantics of the Dutch parliamentary proceedings explicit. Since I have not found any specific vocabulary for my needs, I will reuse already identified concepts and will translate them into an RDF model.

Best regards,

What happen if you model meetings as "Events" with the "what", "when",
"who" views...Let say:
   -for meetings/event, you could reuse lode onto [linkedevents.org/]
for defining different type of meetings
   -for the "what" view reusing the bibo onto has mentioned
   -for the "when" view with the time onto and any appropriate
   -The "who" view will be attached to the agent, role and organization
   -for the scenes, directions, you could reuse the buildings and room
onto [http://vocab.deri.ie/rooms]


   Other pointer of interest:
   * The project Documents onto [http://vocab.deri.ie/pdo] at DERI.

I hope this also helps,
