Best OASIS - Director, Technical Operations 978.667.5115 x206 karl.best@o... http://www.oasis-open.org Name of the TC HumanMarkup Technical Committee Statement of purpose The HumanMarkup Technical Committee is set forth to develop and promote the Human Markup Language and related efforts. These recommendations function to allow the conveyance of human characteristics through XML. HumanML is set forth to be an XML Schema and RDF Schema specification, containing sets of modules which frame and embed contextual human characteristics including cultural, social, kinesic, psychological, and intentional features within conveyed information. Other efforts within the scope of the HumanMarkup TC include messaging, style, alternate schemas, constraint mechanisms, object models, and repository systems, which will address the overall concerns of both representing and amalgamating human information within data. The result will be proposed specifications which have the potential to reduce human misinterpretation and allow much deeper human expression. Applications include, but are not limited to Virtual Reality, Conflict Resolution, Psychotherapy, Art, Workflow, Advertising Systems, Cultural Dialogue, Diplomatic Communication, Business Negotiation, and various other disciplines and functions.
