In this paper we show how Conceptual Graphs (CG) are a powerful metaphor for identifying and understanding the W3C Resource Description Framework. We also presents CG as a target language and graph homomorphism as an abstract machine to interpret/implement RDF/S, SPARQL and Rules. We show that CG components can be used to implement such notions as named graphs and properties as resources.

In brief, we think that CG are an excellent framework to progress in the Semantic Web because the W3C now considers that RDF graphs are– along with XML trees – one of the two standard formats for the Web.
