    Metadata vocabularies, which can be regarded as manifestations of ontologies, provide the critical semantics required for automated information processing. Their representation in a machine processible format is key to the realisation of the SemanticWeb. However for systems to communicate in an open and meaningful manner requires some level of agreement on the concepts and terms to be used. We describe the work of the SCHEMAS project in promoting ontology convergence within domains. One major means of achieving this objective was the development of a knowledge base for metadata vocabularies, also known as a metadata registry.
