RDF Schema for Topic Maps
Moderator: Lars Marius Garshol, Ontopia
Date: Monday, March 11 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm
The goal for
this workshop is that the participants will come out of it with
a proposal for an RDF Schema for topic maps. The workshop will
begin with a short introductory presentation setting out the goals
for the session (in order of priority):
- to define
an RDF Schema for topic maps;
- as far
as possible the schema should not redefine concepts that have
direct equivalents in RDF (for example, perhaps rdf:type can
be used for );
- the schema
should allow individual properties and classes from > that schema
to be reused in other RDF applications;
- to understand
the relationship between RDF terminology and topic map terminology,
- to see
to what extent public subjects can be made interoperable between
topic maps and RDF, so that a public subject, once defined,
can be used with both.
will follow a set of slides setting out the constructs to be modelled
in RDF based on the infoset data model for topic maps (which is
to form the basis of the ISOs Standard Application Model), as
well as issues related to them. The slides are intended as a means
of structuring the discussions of the workshop.
on each slide will continue until the participants are satisfied
with the solution, at which point what has been agreed upon will
be captured, and the workshop will proceed with the next slide.
The goal is that at the end of the workshop a complete, if possibly
rough, schema for topic maps will have been proposed. This can
then be reviewed via email by the participants and published on
the web once complete.
course of action, if any, will be discussed among the participants
of the workshop.

groups) to meet the week before or after Knowledge Technologies
2002. We will be happy to work with you.
