Dear all,

I was thinking of organizing a coordination meeting in Innsbruck on 
FOAF/SIOC/ExpertFinder to discuss planned next steps of these 
initiatives and get a bit more "spin" into the ExpertFinder initiative 
(http://www.rdfweb.org/topic/ExpertFinder) again.

ExpertFinder sees itself in a role to complement efforts like FOAF and 
SIOC and wants to provide the “glue” to plug together missing existing 
and vocabularies for getting a more complete picture to tackle problems 
especially in the domain of personal profile annotation and expert 
finding. We have in mind to do so, mainly by integration with the Rules 
and SPARQL world, in a very much down-to-earth/bottom-up approach.

Note that there is also a workshop organized by the ExpertFinder 
initiative approaching, to be held at ISWC in Korea, more information is 
available at:

Still, it would be good to get together with people around already in 
Innsbruck to discuss ideas.

If there is interest in such a meeting, I would propose June 6th 
evening/afternoon with people who are around in Innsbruck
for ESWC. Please let me know about interest/availability and I will set 
up details!

best regards,
Dr. Axel Polleres
