Call for Participation:
9th International Open Forum on Metadata Registries (Open Forum 2006)
The Main theme for Open Forum 2006 is
The Open Forum will be held in Kobe, Japan March 20 - 22, 2006. This is the ninth forum in a series of international conferences about topics related to metadata registries.
Participants will explore the capabilities, uses, content, development, and operation of registries and related technologies. Semantics management - for concepts and terminology - is becoming especially important, so the emphasis for Open Forum 2006 is on the confluence of terminology and metadata registry standards.
ISO/IEC 11179 Metadata Registries
ISO 704 Terminology work - Principles and methods
ISO 12620 Computer applications in terminology - Data categories
International Standards on language resource management covering for instance feature structure representation, morphosyntactic annotation framework, linguistic Annotation Framework, lexical markup framework, etc.
Other types of metadata registries such as XML registries, business object registries, etc.
Metamodel framework which enables the registration of models and metamodels
Metamodel which describes Ontologies
Metamodels or Catalogues for Production Parts
Extensions to metadata registries to enable registration of complex semantic structures such as ontologies
Ontology Lifecycle Management
Use of metadata registries as semantic resources for semantics-based computing
Provision of semantic services for data grids and the semantic web, and
Questions of the granularity and composition of metadata into core components /elements (and their possible de-composition)
These technologies help enterprise managers to manage their data, information systems, and information services. They lead the way toward semantics management and knowledge management. The technologies are important not only for managing the content of databases and XML data transfers, but also lay the foundation for a coming wave of semantics-based computing. Semantic interoperability is essential for a very broad range of capabilities from traditional applications to the semantic web. The conference will gather standards developers, software developers, and practitioners together to demonstrate accomplishments and to discuss current and future efforts
