F2F6 will be hosted by DERI Innsbruck, in Innsbruck, Austria, on June 2-3, 2007.

The hotels in Innsbruck are expected to fill up quickly, so you are encouraged to book your hotel as soon as possible.

See Registration List.


The overall objective of the F2F is to prepare the release of WD2 as soon as possible.

Beyond fixing some problems that we have in WD1 (e.g. wrt the abstract syntax), our objectives for RIF CORE WD2 are to extend WD1 to:


To make RIF CORE implementable and usable requires at least an XML syntax, and that we address access to data, actions in CORE, as well as built-ins, meta-data and some more. Which, in turns, require that we address the extensibility mecanism.

Hence the agenda:

June 2


June 3
