Introducing VocBench 3, a Collaborative Editor for Semantic Resources

A Collaborative Management System for OWL ontologies, SKOS(/XL) thesauri, Ontolex-lemon lexicons and generic RDF datasets

Initially developed by FAO in the context of the NeOn project as a collaborative environment for the development of the Agrovoc thesaurus, later generalized to a SKOS development platform in the context of a collaboration with the University of Rome Tor Vergata, VocBench has, in 2017, reached its third incarnation. VocBench 3 (or simply, VB3), is the new version of VocBench, funded by the European Commission ISA² programme, its development managed by the Publications Office of the EU, under contract 10632 (Infeurope S.A.). In this talk, we will introduce the platform to newcomers and interested users, present the latest version of VocBench (9.0) and will guide attendees towards the various functionalities of the platform. A look ahead for new directions will conclude the talk.


Armando Stellato, PhD, is Assistant Professor at the University of Rome, Tor Vergata, where he carries on research and teaching in the fields of Knowledge Representation and Knowledge Based Systems. Armando has also been consultant at the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations as Semantic Architect, working on all aspects related to maintenance and publication of FAO RDF vocabularies and on the development of VocBench: an Application for Collaborative Management of RDF Vocabularies. Currently he is leading the VocBench 3 and PMKI projects, both funded by the ISA2 programme of the EU.
