Issue 236: RDF file for CRM CORE

Starting Date: 
Working Group: 
Closing Date: 

In 29th CRM-SIG meeting, we discussed about defining an RDF file for CRM CORE in the light of new extensions presented in the following figure 

The CRM-SIG decided 
(1) to produce a subset for things, texts, images, persons, Martin Doerr will describe this thing and he will send it for comments 
(2) to make explicit some simplification rules 
(3) to simplify isA hierarchy without losing semantics 
(4) to start to make the profile and to put as issue in the WEB.

Old Proposal: 
The proposed subset for CRM-CORE expressed in RDF for reviewing can be found here 

The sig discussed about the proposed extensions and the FRBRoo and decided the following: 
(a) consolidation work of FRBR will be reported by Pat 
(b) The CRMsci will be presented in the main conference CIDOC 2014 and as tutorial. 
(c) The CRMArcheo , produced the European Research Infrastructure Project ARIADNE for archaeology having a proposed a draft extension of CIDOC CRM for complete representation or archaeological excavation records will be under review by the CIDOC Archaeological working group. Also it will be presented as a tutorial in CIDOC 2014 conference. 
(d) CRM-SIG approved that the development of CRMSci and its exsention CRMarcheo into CRM compatible ontologies is in its scope. The harmonization of the two models will be a part of the development of version 6 of CIDOC CRM CRM-SIG 
(e) the crm sig aims that CRMSci and CRMarcheo will become models recommended by CIDOC. 
(f) Christian Emil will be deputy chair of crm-sig to CIDOC and will inform the board committee group about our activities and it will ask the general assembly to approve that all these fall in the interest to museum documentation. 
(g) Barry Norton will help about the name spaces 
(h) crm-sig decided to apply the approval procedures about PRESS OO.
