  17. 17. Issues for Work Group WG3.2: Semantic Contextualisation (1) <ul><li>What kind of functionality based on semantic technology do we actually want to enable (have a look at the thoughtlab and develop ideas from there)? Do we want to enable logical inferencing, for instance? </li></ul><ul><li>What source data do we actually have (subject headings, classifications, thesauri) and how well are objects contextualised in source data? </li></ul><ul><li>What kinds of semantic elements will we be able to produce from these via SKOSification or other automated procedures ? </li></ul><ul><li>Which linked data resources will we be using? </li></ul>

SKOS?? OWL??? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>What input does Europeana.Connect (EuCo) WP1 expect from us and when ? </li></ul><ul><li>What do we expect back from EuCo WP1 and when ? </li></ul><ul><li>Any related projects ? Results we can reuse?? </li></ul>
