====================================================================

*ABOUT THE WEBINAR:*

VocBench is a web-based platform for the collaborative maintenance of
multilingual thesauri. VocBench is an open source project, developed in the
context of a collaboration between the Food and Agricultural Organization
of the UN (FAO) and the University of Rome Tor Vergata. VocBench is
currently used for the maintenance of AGROVOC, EUROVOC, GEMET, the
thesaurus of the Italian Senate, the Unified Astronomy Thesaurus of Harvard
University, as well as other thesauri.

VocBench has a strong focus on collaboration, supported by workflow
management for content validation and publication. Dedicated user roles
provide a clean separation of competencies, addressing different
specificities ranging from management aspects to vertical competencies in
content editing, such as conceptualization versus terminology editing.
Extensive support for scheme management allows editors to fully exploit the
possibilities of the SKOS model, as well as to fulfill its integrity
constraints. VocBench has been open source software since version 2 -- open
to a large community of users and institutions supporting its development
with their feedback and ideas.

During the webinar, Dr. Caracciolo and Dr. Stellato will demonstrate the
main features of VocBench from the point of view of users and system
administrators, and explain in what way you may join the project.
