Issue 422: Phases

Starting Date: 
Working Group: 

In the 43rd joint meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG and ISO/TC46/SC4/WG9; 36th FRBR - CIDOC CRM Harmonization meeting, the crm-sig decided to merge the discussions took place in the issues issues 369, 329 in the CRMsoc forming  a new issue. 

Heraklion, March 2019

Current Proposal: 

In the 44th joint meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG and ISO/TC46/SC4/WG9; 37th FRBR - CIDOC CRM Harmonization meeting, there are numerous, competing understandings on how to proceed on the states and situations issue. Issues 369, 329 and 414 involve the question of states and indicate contradictory positions of states-related classes. The question whether the crm should declare states and, if yes, which model specifically (CRM, CRMinf, CRMsoc, CRMsci), remains unanswered. This situation is represented in this diagram.
The crm-sig decided that more effort is to be put into teasing apart the different types of “states-like” entities, based on their inherent properties. 
HW: FB is going to try and reconcile the different arrangements of states proposed thus far, aided by AG, RS, GB and SS. 
HW: RS will be sharing relevant data that best capture states-like situations.

Dear All

In attachment a proposition (in the sense of a graphical representation of open questions) concerning phases -> HW on  issue 422:

A link to Issue 245: Start/End vs Period of Existence should be added in my opinion at the bottom of issue 422 for the sake of documentation of former discussions.

For the current discussion about Phases see Issue 369 Timed relations.  Issue 414: CRMsci O14 initializes .

All the best
