Semantic Web Structured Data Schemas

From W3C Wiki

This page provides a rough agenda and other info for the face to face meeting of Community Groups working in fields related to vocabularies, Semantic Web and related technologies at TPAC 2016. This was initiated by members of groups and the Semantic Web Interest Group to take advantage of the opportunity to meet face to face during TPAC. While all interested parties are welcome the formal room size is small (20), we encourage observers to join in discussions or consider giving up seats for more active participants if needed. We do not expect typical attendees of this meeting to make a dedicated trip to TPAC purely for it; rather it is oriented towards existing TPAC attendees who share an interest in schemas, hence the loose / ad-hoc agenda.


The goal of the meeting is to encourage cross-group discussion about approaches to the collaborative creation, maintainance and evolution of structured data schemas, particularly those designed for wide-scale adoption and iterative development.

The general topics for discussion will be:

  • Vocabulary development - how can W3C better support vocab development and maintenance, allowing for flexibility and agility without diluting stability.
  • Possible future standardization work.
  • Potentially discussion of specific topical schemas, if sufficient parties express interest.


As the meeting occurs on TPAC's final day (see schedule), we can assume that some participants will have to leave early. Rather than arrange a rigid agenda we have built in scope for self-organization and ad-hoc presentations that draw upon the prior week's TPAC discussions. As a W3C TPAC event we must also assume that many relevant parties will have been unable to travel to the event, and that some very interested parties will be overcommitted and needed in other TPAC events happening simultaneously.

Room 0.08, Ground floor, at the far end, down the stairs, turn left and head for the ladies, but swerve right just before you get there, modulo any relevant physical needs


The meeting is public in that anyone may join it, but you need to be registered for TPAC itself. The room capacity is limited to 20 people which we think means it might be a tight squeeze.
