   Future of Web Applications" on Thursday, 24 April. A press

Last Call: Cool URIs for the Semantic Web

   The Semantic Web Education and Outreach (SWEO) Interest Group has
   published the Last Call Working Draft of "Cool URIs for the Semantic
   Web." The Resource Description Framework (RDF) allows users to
   describe both Web documents and concepts from the real world —
   people, organizations, topics, things — in a computer-processable
   way. Publishing such descriptions on the Web creates the Semantic
   Web. URIs (Uniform Resource Identifiers) are very important to the
   Semantic Web, providing both the core of the framework itself and
   the link between RDF and the Web. This document presents guidelines
   for the effective use of URIs in the context of the Semantic Web.
   Comments are welcome through 28 March. Learn more about the Semantic
   Web Activity.


Call for Review: XML Base (Second Edition) Proposed Edited

   The XML Core Working Group has published the Proposed Edited
   Recommendation of "XML Base (Second Edition)." This document
   describes a facility, similar to that of HTML BASE, for defining
   base URIs for parts of XML documents. All changes to the document
   are recorded in the XML Base Errata document. Comments are welcome
   through 30 June. Learn more about the Extensible Markup Language
   (XML) Activity.
