"Application Profiles for Linked Data: models and requirements"
- Joint meeting, DCMI Architecture Forum and W3C Library Linked Data Incubator Group
- Chairs/Convenors: Tom Baker, Emmanuelle Bermès, Antoine Isaac
- Friday, 22 October 2010
- Part of DC-2010 conference, 20-22 October 2010, Pittsburgh
- Description in conference program
- Preparation of this meeting is taking place on the following mailing lists:
This two-part meeting will look at current approaches to application profiles -- methods for documenting usage patterns in descriptive metadata to promote the design of compatible metadata applications and maximize the coherence of metadata in a Linked Data environment. Starting with a review of the approach based on the DCMI Abstract Model, including the Description Set Profile constraint language and Singapore Framework for Dublin Core Application Profiles, the meeting will also consider other emerging approaches to specifying and documenting metadata usage patterns. By taking a fresh look at requirements in a rapidly evolving environment, this meeting aims at identifying and prioritizing areas where future work may be needed.
Part 1 (14:00-15:30): Review of DCMI Abstract Model, brainstorming on requirements
- DCMI Abstract Model and Singapore Framework for Dublin Core application profiles - a review: Tom Baker and Pete Johnston (remotely)
- Application profiles expressed in OWL2 and rules languages (RIF): Jeff Young and Michael Panzer
- EPrints/SWAP (as an example) in UML/OWL/XML Schema, compared to expression as DC Application Profile
- Background reading:
Part 2 (16:00-17:30): Emerging models and new uses for application profiles
- Application profiles for subject domains (FRSAD): Marcia Zeng, Gordon Dunsire, Maja Zumer
- Background: FRSAD model in graphs [4 slides http://nkos.slis.kent.edu/FRSAR/FRSAD-DCAP2010.pdf] |
- [Other information: final report, presentations, papers on FRSAD http://nkos.slis.kent.edu/FRSAR/index.html]
- How formally (or informally) has this style of application profile been defined?
- In what ways are application profiles for subject domains different from APs for descriptive metadata?
- Lightning presentation on FRBR in OWL and ISBD in DCAP: some issues
- Requirements for application profiles and open questions (1h)
- Do RDF and Linked Data need standard appraches to "application profiles"?
- For expressing a metadata realm and communicating this to others for purposes of sharing or harmonization?
- For providing a basis to validate metadata?
- How formally does an application profile need to be defined?
- Can we identify distinct scenarios for different types of application profiles?
