SPARQL 1.2 Community Group

The SPARQL 1.2 Community Group is a forum for discussion and refinement of SPARQL 1.1. It will document features found as extensions to available triple stores and also document common needs from the user community. The CG aims to create consensus and understanding of the impact of new features with special emphasis on features that leave existing SPARQL 1.1 queries and systems unchanged. The CG will build a collection of such features leading to a CG report on use cases and requirements.

Note: Community Groups are proposed and run by the community. Although W3C hosts these conversations, the groups do not necessarily represent the views of the W3C Membership or staff.

This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2019-03-29 by Andy Seaborne. The following people supported its creation: Andy Seaborne, Ruben Taelman, Adrian Gschwend, Willem Broekema, John Snelson. 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.
