W3C is organizing a
Workshop on the Next Steps for RDF around June 2010; we will announce the exact dates and location as soon as possible.
Since its publication in 2004, the Resource
Description Framework (RDF) has become the core architectural block of the Semantic Web. The standard is now widely deployed in terms of tools and applications. Due to this wide deployment, additional R&D activities, and the publication of newer standards (e.g., SPARQL,
OWL, POWDER, and SKOS), a number of
issues regarding RDF have come to the fore. Workshop articipants
will discuss these issues and help determine whether it is time for a new version of RDF.
W3C Membership is not required to participate
in the Workshop, but each participant must be associated with an accepted
position paper. The deadline for position papers is 29 March 2010; see the Call for Participation for
Updates (including the exact date and location of the Workshop) will be added to the Call for Participation and will be announced on the Semantic Web Activity News Blog.
