"Application Profiles for Linked Data: models and requirements"


Initial agenda

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

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
  • 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?
