I agree with the addition proposed by Thanasis.

I'd propose on my side to add the few words between * * in the text 
below belonging to the "What is the idea ?" section.

"CRMsoc can be used to describe **characteristics of individuals or 
groups**, economic transactions, rights held by people and groups, 
historical phases and the description of plans. As a high level 
conceptual framework for data integration the CIDOC CRM and the CRMsoc 
extension will provide interoperability of existing models devoted to 
specific historical subdomains (e.g. political, intellectual, social, 
economic history). "

Further, I propose to validate and publish both sections of the 
introductory text (it can be found here 
—with the proposed additions if validated by the SIG— on the CRMsoc 
extension website – for preventing that it remains empty longer.

About the text concerning the use of OntoME, we're working hard (with 
the available resources) to come to a MVP of the web application: should 
be done by the end of this year.  Some research projects are starting to 
use OntoME for data production and integration (cf. the presentation in 
the APOLLONIS workshop tomorrow Monday). I therefore propose to wait 
until the next SIG meeting to discuss on a possible section about the 
use of OntoME (separate section on using OntoME 

All the best

> What is CRMsoc?
> CRMsoc is a formal ontology for integrating data about social 
> phenomena and constructs that are of interest in the humanities and 
> social science based on analysis of documentary evidence. The scope of 
> CRMsoc is the following areas of analysis:
>     • Characteristics of human beings, as individuals or groups
>     • Social relations, including between people, between people and 
> groups, and between groups
>     • Rights and duties
>     • Economic activities, including relations between people and 
> things, such as financial transactions leading to ownership
>     • Plans, including expressing proposed activities and legislation
>     • Evaluations, including assessing risks and estimating the value 
> of things
> CRMsoc uses and extends the CIDOC CRM (ISO21127): a general ontology 
> of human activity, things and events happening in space-time. It uses 
> the same encoding-neutral formalism of knowledge representation (“data 
> model” in the sense of computer science) as the CIDOC CRM, which can 
> be implemented in RDFS, OWL, in an RDBMS and in other forms of encoding.
