Call for Participation in Restaurant Ontology Community Group

The Restaurant Ontology Community Group has been launched:

The mission of this group is to create a new ontology to describe restaurants, and reservations to those restaurants. The ontology will support queries such as:

  • Find an Asian restaurant for a business meal, near my job place.
  • Schedule a meal with friends, and add it to my calendar.
  • Find a restaurant with good reviews of people I trust.
  • Find a cheap restaurant near a cinema where I can see the last movie of my favorite director (yes, we need an ontology for cinemas too!)

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account. Please note, however, that W3C Membership is not required to join a Community Group.

This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2015-04-01 by Cyril Otal. The following people supported its creation: Cyril Otal, Michael Petychakis, Mark Matienzo, David Deering, MikaĆ«l Labrut. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.

The group must now choose a chair. Read more about how to get started in a new group and good practice for running a group.

We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please email us at

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
