hi all,

As part of the Semantic Web Best Practices Working Group at W3C[1],
members of the Applications and Demos Taskforce[2] have been experimenting
with different ways of collecting information about Semantic Web
Applications and Demos. We've settled on creating a simple
list in the ESW wiki[3] of DOAP[4] files describing applications and
demos, and then examining and adding them to the list we're
maintaining[5]. Of course there's no reason why others should not take the
list and create their own view on it using RDF tools.

If you'd like your application or demo to be considered by the taskforce
for inclusion in [5], please

 - Read the critera to make sure you're app or demo is suitable (see
 - Create a DOAP file (there are several tools for this linked from
http://esw.w3.org/topic/SemanticWebDOAPBulletinBoard, e.g. doap-a-matic [6])
 - Link it from your app or demo's homepage like this:

        <link rel="meta" title="DOAP" href="mydoap.rdf" type="application/rdf+xml"/>

 - Add your DOAP file to
http://esw.w3.org/topic/SemanticWebDOAPBulletinBoard for consideration.

Criteria for inclusion

 - Only applications and demos with their own DOAP descriptions
will be included. The DOAP description should normally be created by the
author of the application or demo. The DOAP descriptions must be specific
to a particular application or demo, which must exist and be made
available via the doap:homepage location

 - Only freely downloadable applications and demos will be included
unless they are products of a W3C member (free as in beer, although we are
also particularly in interested Open Source software which developers can
take and use).

 - For the time being only RDF, RDFS and OWL applications will be

Looking forward to finding out what's really out there :)
