Candidate Recommendation for the Simple Knowledge Organization System Reference

News from the W3C Semantic Web Deployment Working Group.
The W3C Semantic Web Deployment Working Group is pleased to announce the publication of a Candidate Recommendation for the Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) Reference.

A new Working Draft of the accompanying SKOS Primer has also been published.

The Working Group now calls for implementations.

We would like to hear of any vocabulary (thesaurus, classification system, subject heading system, taxonomy or other KOS) or mapping between vocabularies that has been published in the Web as machine-readable data using SKOS, and/or has been made available via programmatic services using SKOS.

We would also like to hear of any software that has the capability to read and/or write SKOS data, and/or can check whether a given SKOS dataset is consistent with the SKOS data model.
