BOF on Structured Data in HTML, San Francisco, June 8, 2011, at 12:30

Update: See notes from the BOF:

Organized at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square hotel, 333 O'Farrell Street, at the SemTech 2011 Conference

We would like to invite all interested parties to take part at a BOF, organized during the SemTech 2011 conference, on Structured Data in HTML. The questions arising have been around us for a long time, but the recent announcement of made the discussion more timely.

Here are the questions that we propose to discuss (but any participant is welcome to raise additional questions):

  • We see lots of interest in vocabulary development: companies like Facebook, the New York Times, ITPC, Best Buy,, Dublin Core, and others. How do we combine and connect community-based and company-based vocabulary management?
  • We currently have two major formats for generic structured data on the Web: RDFa and Microdata, and we also have microformats for more specific cases. In simple cases, they use very similar mark-up for the same facts. What can a convergence story in for these simple case look like?

The BOF takes place on Wednesday, June 8, 2011, at 12:30, in room Franciscan A. If you are not registered for the conference already, you should register for the conference exhibition; that costs 0$.

There is a projector in the room if needed.

Food is not served, bring your own!

See you there!
