[09:31] John Bateman: @Werner: yes, you should hear stuff if you are connected to the telephone conference line     (1C2T)

[09:34] John Bateman: @Werner: did you find the conference line number on the     (1C2U)

[09:35] WernerKuhn: yes, found the number - if i dial it on skype, how do i enter the conference id then?     (1C2W)

[09:36] John Bateman: @Werner: you have give the code number in: 4389979# on the Skype keypad     (1C2X)

[09:36] Nicola Guarino: @werner: there is a dial option in Skype somewhere... it is under the Window menu     (1C2Y)

[09:37] Laure Vieu: didn't know i could call with skype, i'll try that next to avoid high fees to my lab     (1C2Z)

[09:38] Nicola Guarino: @Laure: call the US number, most EU numbers don't work with Skype     (1C2AA)

[09:38] Laure Vieu: ok thanks     (1C2AB)

[09:53] Peter P. Yim: there are some rough edges about keying in the "conference ID" from the skype keypad     (1C2AC)

- if you run into problem, check this out -     (1C2AD)

[09:59] Peter P. Yim: @Werner - are you on the voice call yet?     (1C2AF)

[10:05] WernerKuhn: yes, i am connected thru a land line, thank you     (1C2AG)

[10:16] Peter P. Yim: @Leo - the next time you speak, you might prompt people who are on the call to     (1C2AI)

join us at the chat-room (there are quite a few who aren't in the chat yet)     (1C2AJ)

[10:30] Fabian Neuhaus: [ref. OntologySummit2011_Communique] number of endorsements < number of advisory committee ???     (1C2AN)

[10:30] Peter P. Yim: unfortunate!     (1C2AO)

[10:31] John Bateman: @Fabian: good point; I guess not all the votes are in yet!     (1C2AP)

[10:31] Peter P. Yim: actually we have closed the endorsement (as of May-19) already     (1C2AQ)

[10:34] Fabian Neuhaus: @ Peter, John: Maybe we should revisit membership of the summit advisory committee     (1C2AR)

[10:34] Hasan Sayani: can't hear the speaker     (1C2AS)

[10:33] Peter P. Yim: @Giancarlo - please speak up     (1C2AT)

[10:35] GaryBergCross: What are the mechanisms for joining a SIG like the Conceptual Modeling SIG?     (1C2AU)

[10:36] Nicola Guarino: @Gary: just send a message to the chair(s)     (1C2AV)

[10:37] Laure Vieu: @Gary: join the association too!     (1C2AW)

[10:43] Giancarlo Guizzardi: @Gary - please check the SIGs registration page at     (1C2AY)

[10:43] Giancarlo Guizzardi: @Gary - please also check the previously mentioned workshop at     (1C2AAA)

[10:45] Ram D. Sriram: @Michael -- How are you going to get buy in from organizations such as ISO, OMG, NCBO, etc...     (1C2AAC)

[10:49] Michael Grüninger: @Ram: At this stage, we are not looking for "buy in" at an organizational     (1C2AAD)

level. We want to focus initially at the different technical groups that are already participating     (1C2AAE)

in ISO, OMG, etc and help facilitate and coordinate the applications of ontologies to these efforts     (1C2AAF)

[11:00] anonymous morphed into Dalia Varanka     (1C2AAG)

[11:01] GaryBergCross: Does IAOA have active involvement with the OOR effort? Does it support     (1C2AAH)

building up a usable repository in some way?     (1C2AAI)

[11:03] Peter P. Yim: @Gary - you have posed a few very good questions in this chat-room ... would you     (1C2AAJ)

verbally ask them and try to get a discussion going, please?     (1C2AAK)

[11:05] Fabian Neuhaus: there is overlap between people involved in IAOA and OOR, e.g,     (1C2AAL)

[11:11] John Bateman: @Gary: The Ontology registry and repository committee is also the structural     (1C2AAN)

position within the association where this involvement is anchored. And, as Nicola emphasises, the     (1C2AAO)

role is to support OOR activities in general: promoting openness.     (1C2AAP)

[11:12] GaryBergCross: I seem to have trouble being heard although the tele voice says that I am     (1C2AAQ)

un-muted. But Peter is making my point on the value of IAOA having some content that might attract a     (1C2AAR)

following.     (1C2AAS)

[11:14] GaryBergCross: Connecting this to the SIGs makes sense.     (1C2AAT)

[11:17] Nicola Guarino: @all: remember to renew your membership (or to join as new members)!     (1C2AAU)

[11:18] Peter P. Yim: -- session ended: 11:18am PDT --     (1C2AAV)
