Ideas and Draft Plans for the Joint OpenOntologyRepository-OntologySummit2008 Panel Sessions     (1)

Panel Discussion Session - Thu 28-February-2008     (1A)

  • Format: opening by co-chairs; each panelists has 15 minutes to present a brief; 45 minutes Q&A and open discussion among all participants     (1A6)
  • Initial questions (for preparation purposes) for the panelists:     (1A7)
    • (a) describe the technology/infrastructure that you are bringing to     (1A7A)

the table for the OOR project?     (1A8)

teams are bringing to the table ... you can start on this during the talk, but this should be the focus of the ensuing discussion.     (1A10)

Panel Discussion Sessions - Thu 27-March-2008 & Thu 03-April-2008     (1B)

  • Session Title: An Open Ontology Repository: Rationale, Expectations & Requirements     (1B1)
    • updated - previously :     (1B1A)
      • "Requirements and Expectation in an Open Ontology Repository" ... and then,     (1B1A1)
      • "Why We Need an Open Ontology Repository?"     (1B1A2)
    • this is a session for ontology developers and stewards telling us their requirements & expectations in an OOR     (1B1B)
  • all speakers are requested to send in a 2-slide summary of their brief (in addition to the slide deck they use during the briefing) for use in a presentation that the OOR-team will be making at the Ontology Summit 2008 face-to-face workshop        (1B4)
  • All speakers and participants please note that these session will be recorded, and the audio archive as well as the entire proceedings (slides, discussions, etc.), are expected to be made available as open content to our community membership and the public at-large under our prevailing open IPR policy.     (1B5)
  • Initial questions (for preparation purposes) for the panelists:     (1B6)
    • The basic question is what would you want/expect from an Open Ontology Repository (OOR) from your perspective?     (1B6A)
    • Peter P. Yim: My first thoughts will be for each panelist to:     (1B6B)
      • (a) tell us about the "ontology(ies)" they develop or are custodians of that could be hosted in the OOR (if one gets developed, be it central or federated), and whether they have an ontology that could be hosted as a early adopter example for alpha and beta purposes.     (1B6B1)
        • (a.1) what it is (name, technology it is based on etc.)     (1B6B1A)
        • (a.2) why would an OOR be good for it     (1B6B1B)
        • (a.3) how is it used (for people or for machine-agents; show application and use case(s); if it is already available)     (1B6B1C)
        • (a.4) how is it maintained (how updated; continued development done locally or in a distributed fashion)     (1B6B1D)
      • (b) what are their expectations and requirements for an OOR, as a developer or steward of the ontology     (1B6B2)
      • (c) expectation or requirements from the user perspective (be they people or machine)     (1B6B3)
      • I'm sure there will be a lot of duplications among panelists, therefore, we might want to do something to (ameliorate) mitigate the time wasted on the redundancies.     (1B6B4)
    • Ken Baclawski: we should ask the panelists for their use cases too [already added to the above. =ppy]     (1B6C)
  • all speakers are requested to send in a 2-slide summary of their brief (in addition to the slide deck they use during the briefing) for use in a presentation that the OOR-team will be making at the Ontology Summit 2008 face-to-face workshop        (1B7)
  • Format: opening by co-chairs; each panelists has 10 minutes to present a brief; ~45 minutes Q&A and open discussion among all participants     (1B8)
  • Session-1:     (1B9)
  • Date / Time: Thu 2008.03.27, ~2.5 Hr session starting 10:30am PDT / 1:30pm EDT / 6:30pm CET / 17:30 UTC     (1B10)

      • Remarks (--EvanWallace / 21 Mar 2008 17:43:09 -0400): regarding OOR-content - Specific content for this repository is to be determined. The intent is to provide reliable availability of reusable semantic models in various forms related to OMG standards. These would be include:     (1B16B1)
        • ontologies based on any of the logic languages supported by ODM metamodels such as Common Logic, OWL, and RDFS;     (1B16B1A)
        • vocabularies based on the Semantics for Business Vocabularies and Rules specification and Topic Maps; and     (1B16B1B)

taxonomies in OOR"     (1B25)

but want to bring up the questions for developers to think about).     (1B27)

knowledges. However they may have a looser control in terms of hierarchical relationships. A related issue in terms of reuse is the encoding -- thesauri can use SKOS easily rather than OWL. It is more economical.)     (1B29)

        • 2, Concept mapping in relation to the reuse of contents in an ontology repository (Currently various registries/repositories and terminology services usually do not provide concept-based mapping when one looks for a reusable piece of ontology to create a new or aggregated ontology.)     (1B30A1A)

    • PatHayes - "Describing Concept Relationships"     (1B30C)
    • MalaMehrotra - "Exposing and Capturing Mapping Relationships across OOR resources"     (1B30D)
      • here are the top two questions I will be addressing for the panel discussion:     (1B30D1)
        • What are the various types of relationships that would be useful to discover across resources in OOR?     (1B30D1A)
        • What do we need in our knowledge representation formalisms to capture such relationships?     (1B30D1B)
    • RobRaskin - "SWEET 2.0 Ontology" - [ SWEET 2.0 ontology ]     (1B30E)
  • Additional input received from candidate panelists who weren't able to join us:     (1B31)
    • NigelCollier - [ BioCaster] - My very brief thoughts on our expectations are really rather on a technical level than a philosophical one. ... I don't have a strong expectation     (1B31A)

at this time beyond being able to provide shared access to our ontology on the web and a secured list of people who can have permission to edit it. Just to contribute my ten pence worth: if asked to think a bit further the working model that comes to mind is something that could build up eventually to a kind of source forge for ontologies - with edit permissions, discussion lists and so on as well as some minimum agreed level of quality in terms of system up time and response time over different geographic areas. This later requirement is quite a strong one as our development teams are geographically dispersed. I don't have any particular line at the moment on standards for ontologies although within Bio Caster we are basically trying to keep within those set out by the OBO guidelines. Again this comment is very superficial - we apply quality control beyond that at both the design stage and at the population stage. The reviewing process I have in mind that a future OOR system might provide is also somewhat similar to that within source forge - where the registered developers take responsibility for ensuring that the ontology is fit for purpose for whatever task they had in mind and the open community at large can provide feedback and review. It's rather pragmatic I'm afraid and just a personal view. (--NigelCollier / 21 Mar 2008 14:48:24 +0900)     (1B32)

due a prior engagement. However I support your effort and we will make all the ontologies we develop available for your repository. (--AsumanDogac / 21 Mar 2008 14:53:07 +0200)     (1B34)

monitor the discussion, however, and contribute where and what I can. (--BillAndersen / 21 Mar 2008 12:40:34 -0400) ... [which he did] see: the post Bill made shortly thereafter.     (1B36)
