English abstract

VocBench is an open source web application for editing of SKOS and SKOS-XL thesauri, with a strong focus on collaboration, supported by workflow management for content validation and publication. Dedicated user roles provide a clean separation of competences, addressing different specificities ranging from management aspects to vertical competences on 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. We describe here the main features of VocBench, which will be shown along the demo held at the ESWC15 conference
