DC 2006 – International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications

by Alistair Miles

I’m at DC-2006, lots of interesting papers and presentations, very nice location too – Manzanillo, Mexico.

I presented “SKOS: Requirements for Standardization” (the presentation is here, the full paper is here). Defining concrete requirements for SKOS is the initial task for the Semantic Web Deployment WG, which is kicking off October 10, so this presentation and paper is intended to suggest an initial direction and discuss trends in the use of controlled vocabularies for retrieval.
