Congratulations Nancy! I was looking for any information online about the standard and could not find a landing home page or any documentation. Naturally, I turned to Wikipedia and had a look there and two articles already mention LAF/GrAF: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO/TC_37 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_National_Corpus

Maybe we could consider creating a Wikipedia page about LAF/GrAF as a web reference? Recently, I started to collect use cases and possible compatible formats for NIF and when I made a section for LAF/GrAF, I was not sure which page or publication I should point to. So I left the section empty :( http://wiki.nlp2rdf.org/wiki/Use_cases_and_requirements#lafgraf

Normally, a Wikipedia page (if not directly usable for citation) lists among the first places on the reference list the publications which provide the best overview.

What do you think about? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LAF/GrAF See below for a rough guideline, what you need to observe, when creating an article. I included all the mailing lists (also nlp2rdf list) in case people want to join in writing the article ;)

All the best, Sebastian

Some useful Wikipedia guidelines

Conflict of interest: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Conflict_of_interest http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Plain_and_simple_conflict_of_interest_guide (Best to state your bias right away on your user page, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:SebastianHellmann )

WP has a starting an article page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Starting_an_article) and also an Article Creation Wizard: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Article_wizard which is good, because it points you to their Notability guideline: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability This is normally what is checked strictly when new articles are created. I didn't find anything specific about ISO standards.
