About the workshop

On 12 November 2014, the ISA Programme of the European Commission will host the Workshop “Core data models for public administrations”. The workshop invites e-Government experts to share their views on how Europe can maximally benefit from core data models, which are defined as foundational data models that capture the fundamental characteristics of data entities in a context-neutral fashion. In the last decade, several core data models have been created by public administrations to foster cross-domain semantic interoperability. These initiatives include among others:

Additionally, standardisation organisations have created core data models that are being used in information exchanges by public administrations. These include among others:

Core data models can be extended in order to be applied in specific application domains and are thus the starting point for agreeing on new domain models and information exchange models. The use of core data models guarantees a minimum level of cross-sector and/or cross-border semantic interoperability.

The European Commission promotes cross-domain semantic interoperability with the Interoperability Solutions for European Public Administrations (ISA) Programme. Within Europe we see countries that are already mature and countries that are less familiar with creating and using core data models. The workshop intends to capitalize on this trend and bring together different stakeholders from different Member States in order to discuss the following questions:

  • Creation: Which core data models exist? Why and how are they created?
  • Use: How to use? What is the real use? How to measure conformance?
  • Maintenance: How are they maintained? What are the benefits? What are the costs?
  • Coordination: How to coordinate and align? Should we create a community of practice or an observatory on core data models? Should we operate a common metadata register?

Remote teleconference facilities would be very helpful. There is much work on NIEM and IMI and more that we could discuss/present. Also the CAMeditor project (available in Joinup and also Sourceforge) provides open source tools.
