fyi. Of particular relevance over here, Dan Connolly's going to
present on GRDDL, getting RDF data out of microformats etc. Everyone
There will be a :
Semantic Web Interest Group meeting
at W3C Technical Plenary
Thursday, 2nd March, Cannes Mandelieu, France.
Agenda : below
As Dan Brickley said in his pre-announcement , the SWIG is a fairly
informal public group, the closest we have to a membership list is
subscription to semantic-web at w3.org. (danbri's the chair of SWIG but
won't be available, so I'm standing in). So although the meeting won't
be restricted to W3C Members, we will want to know in advance who will
attending for room logistics etc. The web forms aren't yet set up for
this, details will follow as soon as they become available.
The meeting will be a varied mix of short and medium-length
talks/presentations plus a few very short lightning talks, and some
open discussion. There's a snapshot of the provisional agenda below.
The lightning talks have proved interesting, useful and fun in
previous years. So if anyone would like to present something,
anything, but *very quickly*, please let me know. Right now the agenda
says "max. 10 minutes", if we get a few more of these that time slot
will have to narrow, and the challenge goes up...
