The markup language IFF incorporates ideas from other knowledge representation languages such as RDF/S, OKBC, OIL, CGIF and CycL. IFF has a principled model-theoretic foundation, based upon the logic of Information Flow and expressed in terms of category theory. IFF is the sequel to the markup language pair OML/CKML.
