Event date:
Published on: 11/05/2021



As part of the revision process of the , we are delighted to invite you for our second webinar dedicated to the Core Vocabularies taking place on the 20/05/2021 from 10:00 to 12:00 AM (CET). 

As part of the revision process of the ISA² Core Vocabularies initiated by the SEMIC Action , preparatory work for a major release has been performed for the following Core Vocabularies : Core Person, Core Business, Core Location as well as Core Public Organisation Vocabulary.

In total, more than 60 issues have been reported on the different GitHub repositories of each Core Vocabulary. Whether these issues were specific to one vocabulary or related to the harmonisation of the different vocabularies, propositions have been presented to the community with a view to addressing these issues.

Two webinars were therefore organised on the 23rd of April 2021 and on the 20th of May 2021, allowing the community to discuss the propositions and reach consensus around the proposed changes.
