After receiving many positive responses to the call for expression of interest for a Core Public Event Vocabulary, the ISA² Programme of the European Commission has decided to launch an open working group for the creation of the vocabulary.
Several ISA² partners in the EU countries have expressed a need for a core vocabulary that describes public events. Such vocabulary would capture data about conferences, summits, festivals, exhibitions, etc.
If you are interested to join the Working Group to co-develop the specification, you are invited to:
- Send your name, affiliation and E-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can inform you about upcoming meetings, publications, etc.
- Follow the GitHub repository https://github.com/SEMICeu/Core-Public-Event-Vocabulary
GitHub will be the platform for communication within the working group, e.g. for proposing use cases, tracking pending issues and discussing ideas about the vocabulary. During the public review phase, external stakeholders will also have the opportunity to create issues on GitHub.
- Create a Joinup account and become of a member of the SEMIC collection: https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/collection/semantic-interoperability-community-semic
- Joinup will be used for communication to the wider user community, for general announcements, for sharing online meeting (webinar) details, for publishing the draft and final vocabulary, etc. The Core Public Event Vocabulary solution is accessible via https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/solution/core-public-event-vocabulary/about.
Sign the ISA² Contributor Agreement by commenting "I Agree" on https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/node/700305.
The first working group meeting (webinar) will be scheduled early February. If you would like to join, please share your availability via https://doodle.com/poll/pb5d8tcx3yrp823p#calendar, so we can find the most suitable date.
During the first webinar, we will discuss the use cases of the vocabulary and existing solutions that we could start from or take into consideration.
