Smart Descriptions & Smarter Vocabularies (SDSVoc)

30 November - 1 December, CWI, Amsterdam Science Park


*Vocabulary Development & Management*

- how can the community best collaborate on development of vocabularies?

*Application profiles*

- how should profiles be defined for humans and machines, then linked 
to, validated against etc. SHACL is an obvious one but maybe others too?

*Negotiation by profile*

- can data, especially metadata, be offered in a variety of profiles so 
that a client can request that data in a specific profile? This is 
orthogonal to the question of format or serialization.

*Extending DCAT*

- experience shows that the Data Catalog Vocabulary, DCAT, needs 
extending, so the workshop uses this as a test case for the above.

Those are the headline topics for a workshop being organised by the 
VRE4EIC project and W3C on November 30 - 1 December in Amsterdam. The 
hope is that this will lead to a new W3C Working Group to standardize, 
or at least provide guidance, on these topics.

The VRE4EIC project (http://www.vre4eic.eu) is concerned with scientific 
research data and is building a Virtual Research Environment with 
multiple capabilities across multiple Research Infrastructures. 
Metadata, profiles and interoperability are therefore of central importance.

Short position papers are required in order to participate in this 
workshop. These are not academic papers but descriptions of the problem 
you’d like the workshop to discuss and the presentation you would like 
to offer. ‘Papers’ can be as simple as a short description of a tool or 
service to be demonstrated and the technologies used. Each organization 
or individual wishing to participate must submit a position paper 
explaining their interest in the workshop by 9 October.
