Agenda clash (W3C Technical Plenary and ISWC2007)

Filed under: Semantic Web,Work Related — Ivan Herman @ 12:04

The W3C Technical Plenary Day has been announced (this is a public day, part of the W3C Technical Plenary Week). It is really a pity I cannot be there (the W3C day is in Boston, and I go to ISWC2007 in Korea a few days later; the two events are just too close to one another for a person living in Amsterdam…). Some (all?) sessions are relevant to the various aspects of the evolution of Semantic Web: maybe not technically, but certainly socially. How should W3C groups be organized with respect to openness vs. member confidentiality? How should we handle extensibility based on URI-s (we’ll hit this issue with respect to HTML5 vs. GRDDL and RDFa at some point)? Just two of the obvious examples… There will be public slides, of course, but that is not the same:-(

Oh well… one cannot get it all, right? I am looking forward going to ISWC2007, but I will miss being at this event, that is for sure!

  1. As the AC rep for our company (BoaB interactive) I had the same decision to make. Ultimately I will be going to ISWC2007 as well, but it would be good if there could be better seperation between these important events. By the way, I am in Australia so it isn’t as far as Amsterdam. We just joined the W3C so I was looking forward to the meeting in Boston.
