W3C Launches POWDER Working Group for Retrieving Metadata

W3C is pleased to announce the launch of a new Protocol for Web Description Resources (POWDER) Working Group in the Semantic Web Activity. Phil Archer (ICRA) will chair the group which is chartered through 31 March 2008 to develop a way for structured metadata, called "Description Resources," to be authenticated, applied to groups of Web resources, and retrieved independently of the resources. The group's first teleconference is 9 March. W3C Members may use this form to join the Working Group. Visit the Semantic Web home page. (Archivio News inglese, italiano)
