Charter of the Semantic Content Management SC

The Semantic Content Management SC was established by the OASIS ebXML Registry TC. The SC will define use cases and requirements for managing semantic content within the ebXML Registry 4.0. It will seek to establish a formal liaison with relevant groups within the Semantic Web Activity (SWA) at W3C. Early in its life cycle, the SCMSC will actively engage the SWA relationship and solicit their help to validate requirements. The requirements must include the ability to utilize ontolgies for classifying RegistryObjects and to enable semantic discovery using ontology based queries.

The SCMSC will identify specific Semantic Web technologies (e.g. RDF, OWL) that are necessary to support the requirements identified for semantic content management.

Ultimately, the SCMSC will deliver the detailed technical specification for adding semantic content management capabilities in the registry. The proposal will address changes to RIM, XML Schema, Relational Schema and Registry Service interfaces that will be necessary to support the new features.
