Webinar@AIMS_VocBench 3: some insights on the forthcoming release


Initially developed by FAO of the UN in the context of the NeOn project as a collaborative environment for the development of the AGROVOC thesaurus, later generalized to a SKOS-XLdevelopment platform in the context of a collaboration with the University of Rome Tor Vergata, VocBench is now reaching its third incarnation.

VocBench 3 (or simply, VB3), is the new version of VocBench, funded by the European Commission ISA² programme, and with development managed by the Publications Office of the EU, under contract 10632 (Infeurope S.A.).

VB3 will offer a powerful editing environment, with facilities for collaborative management of OWL ontologies and SKOS/SKOS-XL thesauri. VB3 will surpass its predecessor with native support for OWL, SKOS and SKOS-XL, completely rewritten components for better User Interface, User Management, History Tracking and Validation&Publication Workflow.

This webinar can be a good occasion for being introduced to the platform for the first time or for learning about the improvements that VB3 is bringing over its predecessors.
