I spent a few days in Ottawa last week participating in CANARIE’s Network-Enabled Platforms Workshop.
As the pre-workshop agenda indicated, there’s a fair amount of activity in this area already, and much of it originates from within Canada.
Now that the workshop is over, most of the presentations are available online.
In my case, I’ve made available a discussion document entitled “Evolving Semantic Frameworks into Network-Enabled Semantic Platforms”. This document is very much a work in progress and feedback is welcome here (as comments to this blog post), to me personally (via email to ian AT yorku DOT ca), or via CANARIE’s wiki.
Although a draft of the CANARIE RFP funding opportunity was provided in hard-copy format, there was no soft-copy version made available. If this is of interest, I’d suggest you keep checking the CANARIE site.
