We are very proud that today, during the 'Semantic Treehouse gebruikersmiddag' in Utrecht, we officially launched the new Semantic Treehouse website. By launching this new website, a long-cherished wish to work towards an own, unique look-and-feel has been fulfilled. The first step is now taken by the design of the Semantic Treehouse (STH) website, but the STH platform and its community implementations itself will, in the near future, also evolve into this new style.

The new website contains several improvements, including:

  • User-oriented content to better align with their desire to know how Semantic Treehouse can be used for publishing and maintaining a standard, engaging a user community, and examining implementations technically.
  • Our own story, namely the genesis of STH, with a focus on how we have incorporated our own experiences and struggles with developing and managing standards as functionality into the STH suite.
  • Customer stories from the various standard development communities that use STH in which they showcase the added value STH offers them.
  • Extensive documentation for users, but also developers, community managers and administrators.
  • A blog with the latest updates, news items, deep dives in one of the STH components, research topic, our roadmap, talks, etc.

Many thanks to Simon from Friendly Pixel for designing and collaboratively developing the new website.

Today we had the opportunity to present our applied research activities in the field of semantic interoperability in data spaces to the PLDN community. PLDN is the community of linked data experts in the Netherlands. In my presentation I positioned the importance of semantics, shared ontologies and a Vocabulary Hub in realizing semantic interopability in a data space.

The slides I used for my presentation can be downloaded here: Slides PLDN presentation

Position paper

To read more about the topic of semantic interoperability in data space, please take a look at our position paper The Vocabulary Hub to configure data space connectors

In this position paper we propose a wizard-like approach for data space connector configuration, where data consumers and data providers are guided through a sequence of steps to generate the specifications of their data space connectors, based on the shared vocabularies in the vocabulary hub. We illustrate this with our own implementation of a vocabulary hub, called Semantic Treehouse.

Op 17 maart 2011 had ik samen met collega's mijn eerste SETU-overleg. Op dat moment ben ik twee maanden werkzaam bij TNO, net afgestudeerd en een groentje als het gaat over data-delen. Aangenomen als junior adviseur IT-governance, was mijn betrokkenheid bij het SETU-project bedoeld als een klein uitstapje waar ik mijn adviesvaardigheden kon ontwikkelen. Nietsvermoedend dat het onderwerp data-delen en data-standaarden de rode draad en mijn expertise zouden worden in de ruim 10 jaar die volgden.
