'Singapore Framework' for Dublin Core Application Profiles

Tuesday, September 18, 2007

A main outcome of DC-2007 is the "Singapore Framework", a set of documents that together form the specification of a Dublin Core Application Profile. As presented by Mikael Nilsson at DC-2007, this documentation set puts a formal "Description Set Profile" into the context of functional requirements, domain models, syntax bindings, and user guidelines. The Singapore Framework will guide DCMI Task Groups that are developing Application Profiles and underpins the formal evaluation of Application Profiles by the DCMI Usage Board.
