The central objective of the CORES project is to encourage the sharing of metadata semantics. CORES will address the need to reach consensus on a data model for declaring semantics of metadata terms in a machine-readable way. Consensus on the ground-rules for declaring standard definitions of terms, as well as local usage and adaptations, will enable the diversity of existing standards to "play together" in an integrated, machine-understandable Semantic Web environment.
