In August, we had the pleasure of hosting the excellent instructor, Bob DuCharme, as he walked us through an introduction to SPARQL: “SPARQL Queries, SPARQL Technology.” Next week, Bob will join us again, this time to introduce us to SKOS, the Simple Knowledge Organization System standard.


You manage a taxonomy, thesaurus, or some other kind of controlled vocabulary using a proprietary tool or perhaps even by emailing around spreadsheets to each other.

You’ve heard about the Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) standard, but what does it have to do with your vocabularies, and what does it have to do with the semantic web?

Come learn how this W3C standard can help you ease into semantic technology and better manage your vocabularies at both small and large scales.

We hope you are able to join us on Thursday, October 6th at: 2pm (EST), 1pm (CST) and 11am (PST).

Meet Bob in person when he speaks at the upcoming SemTechBiz Conference in Washington DC, November 29-December 1, 2011.
