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

Proposed deliverables for the SC:
- Slide Presentation: Includes, Use cases, Requirements,
Motivations, Assumptions and Overview of Technical proposal.
- Detailed Technical proposal on Semantic Content Management. This
incorporated into the specs as spec content once approved.
- Paper on "Semantic Content Management using the ebXML Registry".
Venue for submission of paper will be determined later.
