W3C RDF Validation Workshop

From: Eric Prud'hommeaux <eric@w3.org>
Date: Wed, 22 May 2013 09:19:52 -0400
To: semantic-web@w3.org, public-lod@w3.org
Message-ID: <20130522131950.GA790@w3.org>
W3C's hosting a workshop on content validation for RDF data.

If you've wanted tools to make sure that your foaf file has a
foaf:mbox OR a foaf:mbox_sha1sum for every foaf:Person, or if you've
wanted to use RDF for purchase orders but wanted to make sure they had
the required fields, you may want to submit use cases.

If you've got great ideas for languages or re-use of existing tools to
solve these sorts of use cases, you may want to submit those as well.

Please read through the CFP and send any questions or comments to me
(eric@w3.org) or the PC (group-rdf-val-pc@w3.org). If you think this
should go to other lists, please forward. Thanks!

     RDF Validation Workshop - Practical Assurances for Quality RDF Data
     10-11 September 2013, Cambridge, MA, USA

While the Semantic Web has demonstrated considerable value for 
collaborative contributions to data, adoption in many mission-critical 
environments requires data to conform to specified patterns. Validation 
in a banking context shares many requirements with quality assurance of 
linked clinical data. Systems like Linked Open Data, which don't have 
formal interface specifications, share these validation needs. 
Development of standards and tools to meet these requirements can 
greatly increase the utility and ubiquity of Semantic Web data.

Most data representation languages used in conventional settings offer 
some sort of input validation, ranging from parsing grammars for 
domain-specific languages to XML Schema or RelaxNG for XML structures. 
While the distributed nature of RDF affects the notions of "validity", 
tool chains need to be established to ensure data integrity.

This workshop combines discussion of use cases for data validation on 
the Semantic Web with development of technologies to enable those use 

If you are interested in presenting, please submit a position paper by 
30 June 2013.

The workshop is hosted by MIT. For further details, please contact Eric
