Abstract     (1F)

OntologyBasedStandards mini-series session-2: "Moving Forward with Ontology-based Standards: Sharing Experiences-II - Exemplars from OMG" ... [ intro slides ]     (1F1)

This is the 2nd session for the OntologyBasedStandards mini-series, a joint initiative by OASIS, OMG, various ISO working groups, IAOA, OOR and ONTOLOG.     (1F2)

This joint initiative is a collaborative effort by the co-organizers to drive the Ontology-based Standards agenda among the Standards Development community, the Ontology community and the Systems community. Moving "Toward Ontology-based Standards" was adopted as the theme for the Ontology Summit in 2009. Some of the projects started back then, plus others that have emerged since, have produced encouraging results. We believe that sharing the experiences gained from some of those projects with the aforementioned communities will go a long way towards helping move the Ontology-based Standards agenda forward and grounding the arguments for the adoption of the "Ontology-based Standards" approach.     (1F3)

We kicked-off this mini-series on 25-Oct-2012 and showcased efforts from the OASIS ICOM TC. At this 2nd session in the mini-series, we will be featuring exemplary work from OMG that is advancing the state-of-the-art of this very important topic of Ontology-based Standards.     (1F4)

Invited Talks     (1F6)

  • Ms. ElisaKendall (OMG; Thematix) - "Semantics and Standards Interoperability at OMG" ... [ slides ]     (1F6A)
Abstract:     (1F6B)
Understanding of the benefits of using ontologies to support interoperability has become increasingly widespread over the last several years, especially in communities attempting to address complex problem spaces that span organizations, systems, and domains. At the Object Management Group (OMG), now that a number of basic technology standards are in place and are maturing -- the metamodel for Ontology Development (ODM), for Production Rule Representation (PRR), for Semantics for Business Vocabularies and Rules (SBVR), and others -- the need for interoperation among the applications, processes, services, and knowledge bases that implement these standards has become more pressing. In this brief overview I will summarize a few lesser known initiatives underway and motivate the talks we will hear in this session.     (1F6C)
  • Mr. MarkLinehan (OMG; IBM Research) - "The Date-Time Vocabulary, and Mapping SBVR to OWL" ... [ slides ]     (1F6D)
Abstract:     (1F6E)
The Date-Time Vocabulary is a new Object Management Group (OMG) specification that describes a business vocabulary for date and time concepts. This sophisticated vocabulary models many aspects of dates and times, including continuous time, discrete time, the relationship of events and situations to time, language tense and aspect, time indexicals, timetables, and schedules. The Vocabulary is defined in the OMG's Semantics of Business Vocabulary and Business Rules (SBVR) standard and is mapped to UML + OCL and partially to Common Logic.     (1F6F)
The Vocabulary will be employed in the upcoming Financial Industry Business Ontology (FIBO) from the OMG and the EDMC (Enterprise Data Management Council). FIBO requires sophisticated date concepts such as business calendars, schedules, and "roll-over" dates where an event scheduled for a weekend or holiday automatically moves to the next or previous business day. Examples include representation of maturity dates and interest rate schedules.     (1F6G)
A general-purpose mapping of SBVR to OWL is being defined by Elisa Kendall and the speaker. This mapping will be used to produce an OWL version of the Date-Time Vocabulary. The speaker will summarize this ongoing effort.     (1F6H)
  • Dr. DavideSottara (OMG; Arizona State U) - "API for Complex Knowledge Bases : proposals and challenges" ... [ [1] ]     (1F6I)
Abstract:     (1F6J)
The need for knowledge intensive systems is growing in different fields, including     (1F6K)

but not limited to the legal, financial, environmental and clinical domains.     (1F6L)

Given their complexity, applications may need complex knowledge bases combining     (1F6M)

a number of models (declarative, operational, predictive, decisional...) and the relative data and meta-data.     (1F6N)

The goal of the API4KB initiative is to define a standardized set of APIs, decoupling     (1F6O)

the access and management of knowledge from its particular nature and format. This presentation will focus on the challenges and potential benefits, outlining some relevant use cases and the architectural approaches which are currently being discussed in the API4KB working group.     (1F6P)

[09:42] David Whitten: Is the VNC shared screen working ?     (1H2AS)

[09:42] Peter P. Yim: @DavidWhitten - yes     (1H2AT)

[09:44] David Whitten: I used but only have a TightVNC link in the page.     (1H2AU)

[09:45] ElieAbiLahoud: Me too, it seems the case when you are behind a firewall? ...     (1H2AV)

[09:45] Peter P. Yim: @DavidWhitten - don't worry about it, just try to download slides and run them on     (1H2AW)

your own desktop, the speaker(s) will prompt everyone to advance slides so people can stay in sync     (1H2AX)

[09:45] Peter P. Yim: slides are accessible at:     (1H2AY)

[09:54] Anatoly Levenchuk: TightVNC not working with Fire Fox but works with MS IE for me.     (1H2AAA)

[09:48] Doug Foxvog: I'm behind a firewall, but the javascript window popped up. [I'm using Firefox.]     (1H2AAB)

I suppose you have to enable JavaScript.     (1H2AAC)

[09:57] David Whitten: Ah. I am using Firefox 16.0.2 - worked fine in Chrome. Maybe Firefox Java is     (1H2AAD)

having problems.     (1H2AAE)

[10:01] Peter P. Yim: @DavidWhitten (& All) ... I just tested the vnc access with Fire Fox 16.0.2 too,     (1H2AAF)

and it worked properly ... one will have to wait a bit (mine took about 12 seconds) for the viewer     (1H2AAG)

to download ... if that wasn't it, then it's probably related to whether java/javascript has been     (1H2AAH)

enabled for your browser     (1H2AAI)

[09:56] anonymous morphed into BillNadal     (1H2AAJ)

[10:07] Peter P. Yim: @BillNadal - welcome ... could you drop me an email with your affiliation please,     (1H2AAK)

so we can get your registered, and keep you apprised on continuing activities of this group -     (1H2AAL)

mailto: peter.yim [at]     (1H2AAM)

[09:53] David Whitten: When Elisa finishes it would be nice to see a link to some of the government     (1H2AAN)

metamodels she mentioned. I think (US) DoD has a good Metamodel work as well.     (1H2AAO)

[10:08] Elisa Kendall: @DavidWhitten -- there are two specifications already available at OMG that     (1H2AAQ)

we've been working on with respect to information exchange standards to meet government information     (1H2AAR)

sharing needs. These include the SOPES specification I mentioned, which stands for Shared     (1H2AAS)

Operational Picture Exchange Services, available at, and the UPDM     (1H2AAT)

specification, which stands for UML profile for DoDAF and MoDAF, available at     (1H2AAU) The latter is quite mature, and the 2.0 version is available on the     (1H2AAV)

[09:56] RosarioUcedaSosa: My question to Elisa was, are there any guiding principles (for design or     (1H2AAX)

evaluation) with respect to the content or lexically (grammar/language/format) on all of these     (1H2AAY)

standards that OMG is currently developing?     (1H2AAZ)

[10:04] Elisa Kendall: @Rosario -- with respect to grammar/language/format, I mentioned that our work     (1H2AAAA)

is based on the language standards already available from the OMG -- the Ontology Definition     (1H2AAAB)

Metamodel (ODM) is available at and SBVR is available at     (1H2AAAC) With respect to methodology, we have some community rules of thumb,     (1H2AAAD)

but nothing aside from general OMG methods from a model driven architecture perspective published to     (1H2AAAE)

date for vocabulary or ontology design/development/evaluation, etc. Having said that,     (1H2AAAF)

DeborahMcGuinness and I are working on an eBook on methodology based on our SemTech tutorial, which     (1H2AAAG)

I anticipate will be available from Morgan Claypool sometime next year. Once the basic starting     (1H2AAAH)

point is done, we're hoping to extend that with a companion eBook focused on the OMG work we're     (1H2AAAI)

doing, and that can be used as guidance for folks developing standard vocabularies at OMG. The first     (1H2AAAJ)

&quot! ;piece" of methodology we're working on at OMG is a standard set of annotations for ontology     (1H2AAAK)

metadata, some of which Mark will talk about as part of what we're doing with the mapping from SBVR     (1H2AAAL)

to OWL. We should have that available publicly in the next several weeks as an architecture board     (1H2AAAM)

recommendation.     (1H2AAAN)

[09:57] Peter P. Yim: == Mark Linehan presenting ...     (1H2AAAO)

[10:00] Anatoly Levenchuk: Relatively fresh OMG drafts of Information Exchange Framework (IEF) and     (1H2AAAP)

Information Exchange Policy Vocabulary (IEPV) --     (1H2AAAQ)

[10:05] Pete Rivett: XML Schema is not Platform Independent     (1H2AAAR)

[10:12] Steve Ray: QUDT ( ) is also a pretty complete model of quantities     (1H2AAAS)

[10:42] Mark Linehan: @SteveRay we are aware of qudt and also qudv; both overlapped our work in time;     (1H2AAAT)

we minimized what we addressed in this area with the idea that someday there should be a much more     (1H2AAAU)

complete quantities vocabulary.     (1H2AAAV)

[10:13] Peter P. Yim: @MarkLinehan - ref. your slides#9 - when we (PatHayes, myself and others) are     (1H2AAAW)

resuming work on the OASIS QUOMOS TC (happening soon), we will definitely look forward to     (1H2AAAX)

collaborating with you on your ongoing related work     (1H2AAAY)

[10:43] Mark Linehan: @PeterYim we are glad to contribute any insights from the Date-Time Vocabulary     (1H2AAAZ)

to QUOMOS or other such efforts     (1H2AAAAA)

[10:43] Peter P. Yim: Thanks, Mark!     (1H2AAAAB)

[10:18] Elisa Kendall: @Steve and @Peter, we are hoping that the work that's being done at OMG for     (1H2AAAAC)

units from this Date Time Vocabulary and from SysML will feed into the QUOMOS activity. Recent OMG     (1H2AAAAD)

work includes aligning what was done in SysML with the Date Time effort, which we think will also     (1H2AAAAE)

resolve some of the representational issues that originally split the QUDV (ESA/NASA/JPL/OMG) and     (1H2AAAAF)

QUDT (NASA/TQ) communities.     (1H2AAAAG)

[10:15] David Whitten: Question for Mark Linehan, does this handle time as identified in a book, where     (1H2AAAAH)

the exact beginning or end of a time interval is identified by "the time a particular line in the     (1H2AAAAI)

story occurs" ?     (1H2AAAAJ)

[10:45] Mark Linehan: @DavidWhitten the start and/or end of a time interval can be identified by     (1H2AAAAK)

situation kinds' or 'occurrences' - I think that does what you want     (1H2AAAAL)

[10:16] Doug Foxvog: I don't see time zones mentioned in the Date-Time slides. Are time zones     (1H2AAAAM)

included in this ontology?     (1H2AAAAN)

[10:46] Mark Linehan: @DougFoxvog yes, there is support for time zones in the Date-Time Vocabulary     (1H2AAAAO)

[10:18] Matthew West: How do you identify the boundaries of a time interval?     (1H2AAAAP)

[10:25] Elisa Kendall: @Matthew -- in the specification, there is some discussion of this in under     (1H2AAAAQ)

8.3.2, when you map a time interval to a specific situation or occurrence, see     (1H2AAAAR) for the current version, although there will be a better one out after     (1H2AAAAS)

the first of the year based on the revision Mark just mentioned.     (1H2AAAAT)

[10:49] Mark Linehan: @MatthewWest - there are 3 ways to identify the "boundaries of a time     (1H2AAAAU)

interval": (1) by events (situation kinds, occurrences); (2) by time coordinates (i.e. literals such     (1H2AAAAV)

as '2pm'); (3) by what SBVR calls 'definite descriptions' (i.e. formulations) such as "2 hours after     (1H2AAAAW)

the close of business"     (1H2AAAAX)

[11:00] Matthew West: @Mark I was concerned about things like the boundary between two days. You said     (1H2AAAAY)

that you had no such thing as an instance in time, so I was wondering how you handled such practical     (1H2AAAAZ)

things as this.     (1H2AAAAAA)

[11:17] Mark Linehan: @MatthewWest Date-Time defines the idea of 'time points', which are concepts of     (1H2AAAAAB)

time intervals that are distinguished by being defined according to a time scale. Time points are     (1H2AAAAAC)

aligned (e.g. to midnight) and have a specific duration     (1H2AAAAAD)

[11:23] Mark Linehan: @MatthewWest (continuing...) the 'boundaries' between two days are the start     (1H2AAAAAE)

and end of the time intervals that instantiate the 'calendar day' time points     (1H2AAAAAF)

[10:19] Pete Rivett: is it really one to many from Occurrence to Kind? A real occurrence such as a     (1H2AAAAAG)

Fire could be an instance of many kinds e.g. Fire, Disaster, High Temperature Event, Insurance Claim     (1H2AAAAAH)

[10:50] Mark Linehan: @PeteRivett: one situation kind may have zero to n occurrences. An occurrence     (1H2AAAAAJ)

may exemplify multiple situation kinds.     (1H2AAAAAK)

[10:22] Peter P. Yim: Mark start presenting the work on Mapping SBVR Vocabularies to OWL2, a joint work     (1H2AAAAAL)

[10:30] anonymous morphed into Tara Athan     (1H2AAAAAN)

[10:31] RosarioUcedaSosa: @Elisa, is it possible to have a copy of the SemTech tutorial materials?     (1H2AAAAAO)

(I won't divulge it and use it as 'under work' materials)     (1H2AAAAAP)

[10:34] ElieAbiLahoud: @rosario: A copy of Elisa's ontology 101 on slideshare :     (1H2AAAAAQ)     (1H2AAAAAS)

[10:36] Elisa Kendall: @Rosario -- we've posted it on our Thematix site, with the latest version at     (1H2AAAAAT)

is more comprehensive with respect to methodology, but doesn't cover the languages so much -- there     (1H2AAAAAV)

are lots of other books that do, including "Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist" by Jim Hendler     (1H2AAAAAW)

and Dean Allemang, which we use when teaching, along with JohnSowa's Knowledge Representation book     (1H2AAAAAX)

for some of the more basic KR background.     (1H2AAAAAY)

[10:59] RosarioUcedaSosa: @Elisa Yes, I'm aware of Jim's work... I'm just trying to collect     (1H2AAAAAZ)

effective ways to measure the effectiveness of an ontology (or semantic model in general) so any     (1H2AAAAAAA)

other references that come to mind will be really useful.     (1H2AAAAAAB)

[10:58] Ram D. Sriram: @Davide. I probably missed the beginning, but which organization are you     (1H2AAAAAAD)

targeting. About ten years ago, we had OMG put out an RFP on Knowledge-based Interoperability, but     (1H2AAAAAAE)

there was no interest from the industry.     (1H2AAAAAAF)

[11:10] Elisa Kendall: @Ram -- the API4KBs RFP was more recent, and was specific to Semantic Web     (1H2AAAAAAG)

technologies originally, but we've expanded the scope to enable richer interoperability. The     (1H2AAAAAAH)

out in 2010. Thales was the main author, but several folks in the Ontology PSIG reviewed it at     (1H2AAAAAAJ)

several points along the way. We will be working on the architecture for two days just before the     (1H2AAAAAAK)

Burlingame meeting (12/8-9), and then there will be follow-up discussions in Reston in March. I had     (1H2AAAAAAL)

hoped Evan would be able to work on this with us, but that doesn't appear possible, aside from     (1H2AAAAAAM)

possibly by phone, depending on his availability. Evan Wallace, Roy Bell, Hugues Vincent, and several     (1H2AAAAAAN)

others including me did look at the original RFP that you all developed, but really wanted to bring     (1H2AAAAAAO)

it forward to address the ontology and classification / rules / predictive analytics / NLP     (1H2AAAAAAP)

interoperability challenges we've been running into. I'd be happy to share more history, etc.     (1H2AAAAAAQ)

offline -- feel free to drop me a note at ekendall [at]     (1H2AAAAAAR)

[11:16] Ram D. Sriram: @ElisaKendall: Thanks for the clarification. I will follow up with you later.     (1H2AAAAAAS)

[11:00] anonymous morphed into Fran Lightsom     (1H2AAAAAAT)

[11:03] Alex Shkotin: CNL4KB should be fruitful.     (1H2AAAAAAU)

[11:10] Julia Bermejo: Need to go. Thank you for a very interesting session. See you in next one.     (1H2AAAAAAV)

[11:14] Peter P. Yim: @Julia - thank you for joining us today ... and, again, welcome back!     (1H2AAAAAAW)

[11:15] Peter P. Yim: == Q&A and open discussion now ...     (1H2AAAAAAX)

[11:16] Peter P. Yim: * Mute control: *7 to un-mute ... *6 to get back to mute again (after speaking)     (1H2AAAAAAY)

[11:15] Elisa Kendall: @Rosario -- Deb (DeborahMcGuinness) and I have been talking about criteria for     (1H2AAAAAAZ)

evaluation, and what we might include in the eBook, but it's a fairly broad topic that probably     (1H2AAAAAAAA)

deserves it's own effort. Criteria really depend on the use case(s) for developing the ontology in     (1H2AAAAAAAB)

the first place, and while the degree to which one can answer competency questions, precision, and     (1H2AAAAAAAC)

recall are the primary metrics from a historical perspective, there may be additional metrics you     (1H2AAAAAAAD)

could consider in the context of some of these more complex applications. If I think of anything     (1H2AAAAAAAE)

else, I'll be happy to drop you a note, or if you find things you'd like to point me to, please do!     (1H2AAAAAAAF)

[11:16] RosarioUcedaSosa: @Elisa, pls, let's start an informal conversation on this. Feel free to     (1H2AAAAAAAG)

drop me a note at rosariou [at]     (1H2AAAAAAAH)

[11:17] Elisa Kendall: @Rosario -- will do.     (1H2AAAAAAAI)

[11:14] Alex Shkotin: @Elisa your url asks login+password:-(     (1H2AAAAAAAJ)

[11:17] Elisa Kendall: @Alex -- if you can't get to it directly, please drop my partner, Larry Smith,     (1H2AAAAAAAK)

a note, and I'm sure he will provide access. Larry's email is lsmith [at]     (1H2AAAAAAAL)

[11:17] Alex Shkotin: @Elisa, thank you.     (1H2AAAAAAAM)

[11:18] RosarioUcedaSosa: @Elisa thanks!     (1H2AAAAAAAN)

[11:18] RosarioUcedaSosa: @All, gotta go, but thanks for a great discussion! This was really helpful     (1H2AAAAAAAO)

[11:19] Peter P. Yim: @Rosario - Thanks for joining us and for the contribution today     (1H2AAAAAAAP)

[11:22] Eric Chan: On behalf of the speakers (of 10/25 and 11/08 sessions), I would like to highlight     (1H2AAAAAAAQ)

the call for participation in ontology-based standards activities in OASIS and OMG TCs. Ken, Peter,     (1H2AAAAAAAR)

and I have the following call to action message: ICOM domain is an amalgamation of the data object     (1H2AAAAAAAS)

models (hidden pearls) in disparate standards that address different aspects (such as protocol,     (1H2AAAAAAAT)

operation, encoding, interface) of interoperability between applications. Ontology-based     (1H2AAAAAAAU)

standardization of ICOM harmonizes the data object model for representation and transformation among     (1H2AAAAAAAV)

ontology/programming languages. This work can be further formalized with SBVR and ODM. Further     (1H2AAAAAAAW)

ontology-based standardization of ICOM domain can provide a semantic model of collaborative     (1H2AAAAAAAX)

interactions that permeate through all human activities. We welcome participants to contribute to     (1H2AAAAAAAY)

extend ICOM as a showcase for a community of practice in ontology-based standards. Join us at     (1H2AAAAAAAZ)

[11:25] Peter P. Yim: @ALL: would love to get input from everyone here on how we could move the     (1H2AAAAAAAAB)

Ontology-based Standards agenda forward     (1H2AAAAAAAAC)

[11:26] Peter P. Yim: specifically ... do YOU have recommendations on people and work that we might     (1H2AAAAAAAAD)

feature in upcoming mini-series sessions?     (1H2AAAAAAAAE)

[11:26] David Whitten: (a follow-up on earlier discussions and verbal remarks address to MarkLinehan)     (1H2AAAAAAAAF)

An example of this kind of time ontology, you have a document that states something occurs but     (1H2AAAAAAAAG)

doesn't have an actual time stamp, such as it occurs 1500 time-units (un-specified) after the     (1H2AAAAAAAAH)

beginning, and then the document states that the next thing that happens an unspecified number of     (1H2AAAAAAAAI)

iterations, and then the third thing that happens is known to happen during a particular unstated     (1H2AAAAAAAAJ)

iteration after the start of the second thing. One of the known things is that the events are     (1H2AAAAAAAAK)

mentioned in the document in a particular order, but not that the events occur in that order.     (1H2AAAAAAAAL)

[11:28] Mark Linehan: You can certainly say things like one situation kind occurs after another one     (1H2AAAAAAAAM)

[11:29] ElieAbiLahoud: @All, I have to go - thank you very much!     (1H2AAAAAAAAN)

[11:29] Matthew West: I have to go. thanks.     (1H2AAAAAAAAO)

[11:28] Peter P. Yim: Question to All: who else (working groups) should we be engaging? ... especially those     (1H2AAAAAAAAP)

who are working on a similar (OntologyBasedStandards) agenda     (1H2AAAAAAAAQ)

[11:28] Alex Shkotin: @Peter, what about ISO 15926 overview?     (1H2AAAAAAAAR)

[11:30] Peter P. Yim: @AlexShkotin - we have had several ISO 15926 presentation before, and those are on     (1H2AAAAAAAAS)

archive already (MatthewWest can probably chime in here) ... is there something specific that you     (1H2AAAAAAAAT)

are looking for?     (1H2AAAAAAAAU)

[11:31] Alex Shkotin: @Peter, just how they use OWL:-)     (1H2AAAAAAAAV)

[11:31] Peter P. Yim: @AlexShkotin - I totally agree with you that we should (continue to) engage the     (1H2AAAAAAAAW)

ISO 15926 working group, given the great work they have been doing all along     (1H2AAAAAAAAX)

[11:34] Peter P. Yim: @AlexShkotin - thanks, Alex ... we'll try to follow-up with them (unfortunately,     (1H2AAAAAAAAY)

Matthew has signed off already, otherwise he could probably give a real time response now)     (1H2AAAAAAAAZ)

[11:34] Peter P. Yim: @AlexShkotin - are you on that (ISO 15926) working group?     (1H2AAAAAAAAAA)

[11:38] Peter P. Yim: @AnatolyLevenchuk - yes, please help relay this community request to the WG -     (1H2AAAAAAAAAE)

would love to have members of your group join us in planning how we could move forward with the     (1H2AAAAAAAAAF)

Ontology-based Standards agenda ... plus also, find a time when we could hear about work in OWL from     (1H2AAAAAAAAAG)

you guys (as requested by Alex Shkotin earlier)     (1H2AAAAAAAAAH)

[11:37] Anatoly Levenchuk: ISO 15926 actively developing, there are many news about it.     (1H2AAAAAAAAAJ)

[11:30] Elisa Kendall: @MichaelGruninger -- I'd be happy to talk with you about other ontologies in     (1H2AAAAAAAAAK)

some of our standards. The only one that's been published to date is the Date Time Vocabulary, but     (1H2AAAAAAAAAL)

the Information Exchange Policy Vocabulary will be published early next year and is an ODM/OWL     (1H2AAAAAAAAAM)

ontology. FIBO will also have multiple ontologies as part of the standard, which I think will be out     (1H2AAAAAAAAAN)

sometime next year.     (1H2AAAAAAAAAO)

[11:31] Elisa Kendall: @Michael -- I'll have to check with Craig Stancl and Harold Solbrig on whether     (1H2AAAAAAAAAP)

or not there are ontologies embedded in CTS2     (1H2AAAAAAAAAQ)

[11:34] Mark Linehan: One of the motivation for the Date-Time Vocabulary work is the idea that the     (1H2AAAAAAAAAR)

ontology world needs cross-industry 'foundation' vocabularies/ontologies.     (1H2AAAAAAAAAS)

[11:35] Mark Linehan: It would make a lot of sense to restart the work on QUOMOS or to address     (1H2AAAAAAAAAT)

similar cross-industry needs such as currency     (1H2AAAAAAAAAU)

[11:36] Peter P. Yim: @MarkLinehan - agree ... "currency?" that's a real challenge! ... we'll try     (1H2AAAAAAAAAV)

[11:36] Mark Linehan: FIBO either has currency or would be a good ally in defining it     (1H2AAAAAAAAAW)

[11:37] BillNadal: thanks to all, useful and valuable information     (1H2AAAAAAAAAX)

[11:39] Elisa Kendall: Thanks everyone -- we really appreciate the attention and any of your     (1H2AAAAAAAAAY)

thoughts/feedback would be most welcome. We also look forward to having any of you jump in to help     (1H2AAAAAAAAAZ)

with either initiative.     (1H2AAAAAAAAAAA)

[11:40] Peter P. Yim: great session ... thank you all for the participation and contribution! Stay in     (1H2AAAAAAAAAAB)

touch - on the [ontology-based-standards] mailing list -     (1H2AAAAAAAAAAC)

[11:40] Alex Shkotin: Goodbye all. Thanks!     (1H2AAAAAAAAAAF)
