THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED: New submission deadline 30. April 2013
Mutually agreed interface descriptions laid out in standards help to reduce a system’s complexity in manifold ways. Standardised processes will simplify governance, increase service delivery quality and enable collaboration beyond system boundaries. Major standards in use today were set up by raw consensus (e.g. http) with others being established by a more conventional standardisation gremium (e.g. GSM). Standards get erected by jurisdiction, by industrial agreement or because of long-lasting, widespread and habituated usage, assigning different roles and meanings to actual standards usage and enforcement patterns.
- requirements, costs & benefits as well as evaluation of existing standardisation efforts in DACH and Europe with a focus on Metadata and naming schemes (URI-concepts)
- publication process and hand-over from internal departments of public administration to OGD portals
- technical requirements and expectations of the developer community in relation to the status quo of OGD portals and the
The Workshops goal is to give answers, identify missing expertise and sketch a process model to the following questions:
- Would OGD in a DACH/pan-European/global context benefit of a standardisation process on the technical layer or does the promise of Linked Data suffice to agree on the semantic layer?
- What is the current status quo of standardisation in different countries?
- Which organisational processes are in place in those countries to support OGD standardisation?
- Would the topic of OGD benefit of a cross-country standardisation approach? Would an European, overarching approach help to quicker realize the promised benefits of OGD (economic growth, strengthen democratic institutions, more informed thus qualitative decisions)
- Standards now and in the future: Which importance will the ongoing standardisation efforts of OGD have in the future?
