RDF Calendar Workspace

This is a workspace for RDF calendaring work, starting with emphasis on representing iCalendar (RFC 2445) in RDF. The main result so far is:

The schema and test data live here; we're using the ESW Wiki for use cases, meeting summaries, notes on calendar applications/user-agents, documenting emerging semantic web patterns and the like.

This workspace stems from a discussion at the calendaring workshop in October in Bristol.


While we have started to use the ESW Wiki for usage notes and such, the following are still maintained in this workspace:

At the Bristol workshop, we agreed, roughly...

If the last modified dates below are more than a few months old, active developments have likely ceased. If things ever actually stabilize, we'll change this status message.

Some details (such as the address of the workspace) were refined in discussion of 19 December.

We'll integrate contributions made to the www-rdf-calendar mailing list on a best-effort basis.

Time Zone Data

The public domain tz/zoneinfo database used in open source libc implementations has been converted to .ics format via an Olson -> VTIMEZONE Converter. We ran those files (taken from evolution debian package, Version: 1.2.1-3, which uses libical) thru ical2rdf.pl and put the results under the tzd/ directory. For example, America/Chicago. We give the timezone component a name distinct from the RDF document; e.g. http://www.w3.org/2002/12/cal/tzd/America/Chicago#tz


We meet occasionally in the #rdfig IRC channel on freenode (formerly OpenProjects). Meetings are announced to www-rdf-calendar (archives); the IRC logs and weblogs generally serve as meeting records.

Many of the meetings are described in RDF calendar entries in the test data.

The time and date web site is handy for scheduling meetings across timezones.
