Calls are open


Bootstrap your new Vocabulary project: At the carnival you can present your ideas and early stage vocabs to find the right people to get the Vocab discussion going. For this event we use a very open definition of what a vocabulary is. Ontologies, classifications, thesauri, concept and metadata schemes, whatever their format, in RDF or not, are all welcome. We require at least a project web site. 

Submit your Vocabulary to the Carnival!
