Following the 24 June OA Data Model Rollout at the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom, a face-to-face meeting of the OA Community Group will be held. This meeting will take place Tuesday, 25 June, 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM at Manchester. The meeting will be a working meeting focusing on next steps for the Group now that Community Draft 2 of the Open Annotation Specification has been released.
The meeting agenda will include the following topics:
- Should rdf:List be a mix-in rather than referenced object for oa:List?
- Should we just use Alt, Bag and List directly making oa specific classes, e.g., oa:List, unnecessary?
- The oa:SemanticTag as a class is still ugly, is there a better solution?
- Can we offer a mapping to prov for specific resources (e.g. for time)?
- Rather than stick with our current arm chair list, should we provide more clarifications and validation for Motivations?
- Should we spin off specific resource and selectors to its own independent group?
- When would/should we move to a Working Group?
- What will we do about cnt if we go to a Working Group, as it’s not going to be stable?
The goal is not make major changes to the specification but rather to develop best practices and provide clarifications that will facilitate adoption and proliferation of the data model. This meeting will be led by Community Group Co-Chairs — Paolo Ciccarese and Rob Sanderson. The meeting is open to all registered Participants in the Open Annotation Community Group, ensuring that those attending have agreed to the W3C Community Contributor License Agreement. Please RSVP by email to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) by no later than 20 June.
When you RSVP, I’ll forward you additional logistics details, including recommended hotel. Full final agenda will be posted to the Community Group listserv a week in advance of the meeting.
