Abstract     (1E)

This session is a culmination of the community input received during the following recent community planning sessions:     (1E1)

From the above input, a strawman program of ONTOLOG events for the rest of 2013 has been crafted; and it looks something like the following. This will provide a starting point for our deliberation during the session. We will also take the opportunity to get community input on potential panelists for each of these panel sessions.     (1E6)

see developing Master Event Calendar at: MeetingsCalls     (1E7)

We will aim at defining the events, fitting the above into the rest our Ontolog 2013 event calendar, and postponing some sessions till after OntologySummit2014. Hopefully, by the end of this session, we would have confirmed the content and champions for each of the virtual panel sessions (between now and end-Dec 2013), in a way that will give the community a strong and coherent program of events. We will also take the opportunity to get community input on potential panelists for each of these panel sessions, as recommendations to the session chairs.     (1E29)

[10:38] GaryBergCross: DC is in the midst of a storm so I may lose power and thus internet...     (1G5AK)

[10:47] Benjamin Grosof: Correction: There's a typo in the calendar: it should be Thur. 12/19 not     (1G5AM)

Thur. 12/17. [Thanks, Benjamin ... now corrected. --ppy]     (1G5AN)

[10:39] Benjamin Grosof: wrt schedule for the RulesReasoningLP etc. miniseries: 10/17 I have a     (1G5AO)

probable conflict.     (1G5AP)

[10:41] Benjamin Grosof: Suggestion: therefore, how about we swap the topics of the 10/24 and 10/17     (1G5AQ)

sessions? I.e., do RulesReasoningLP Session 1 on 10/24?     (1G5AR)

[10:54] Peter P. Yim: [consensus] we will swap the 10/17 and 10/24 dates - so: we will now have:     (1G5AS)

2013_10_24 - Thursday: RulesReasoningLP - session 1     (1G5AU)

2013_10_17 - Thursday: OntologyBasedStandards - session 4     (1G5AV)

[10:59] Peter P. Yim: @Elie - it's "session 4" - as 3 prior sessions on this mini-series has already     (1G5AAB)

[11:03] anonymous morphed into Tara Athan     (1G5AAD)

[11:04] Michael Grüninger: @MikeBennett: we can't hear you     (1G5AAE)

[11:05] Mike Bennett: I've had to drop off for another call.     (1G5AAF)

[11:05] Michael Grüninger: @MikeBennett: ok, we'll come back to you in 5 minutes?     (1G5AAG)

[11:05] Mike Bennett: Will remain lurking here on the chat, but not on the audio - apologies.     (1G5AAH)

[11:08] Mike Bennett: We are pretty flexible I think. Will have to co-ordinate with BillMcCarthy     (1G5AAI)

also. I have a holiday penciled in for week of 24th but otherwise I'm OK.     (1G5AAJ)

[11:07] Peter P. Yim: ref TaraAthan's question - the standard start-time for the Thursday sessions are     (1G5AAK)

12:30pm EDT and it will last 1.5~2.0 hours (generally 2-Hours when we have a panel session with     (1G5AAL)

multiple panelists)     (1G5AAM)

[11:08] Michael Grüninger / Ken Baclawski: S6. Ontologies for Social Networks [KenBaclawski, EricChan]     (1G5AAN)

- propose to move to next year (after Ontology Summit)     (1G5AAO)

[11:09] Adam Wyner: I'd be very interested in this topic. Please put me on the list for this: S7. How     (1G5AAP)

ontologies can help with the formal specification of the natural language standards     (1G5AAQ)

[11:09] Adam Wyner: There is a lot going on in NL and ontologies.     (1G5AAR)

[11:10] Adam Wyner: Also Lemon.     (1G5AAS)

[11:10] Adam Wyner: There could be some clarification of what this subject means.     (1G5AAT)

[11:07] Michael Grüninger: @MikeBennett: do you have a preferred date for your session? - S4.     (1G5AAU)

Ontology-based Financial Standards (e.g. ISO 15944, FIBO) [MikeBennett, BillMcCarthy, ElieAbiLahoud]     (1G5AAV)

[11:10] Michael Grüninger: @MikeBennett: make a random choice between November 7 and December 12 :-)     (1G5AAW)

[11:11] Mike Bennett: @Elie do you have a preference between those dates, as you're also on the hook     (1G5AAX)

for this one?     (1G5AAY)

[11:13] ElieAbiLahoud: I suggest Nov-28 or Dec-5, what do you think ?     (1G5AAZ)

[11:15] Michael Grüninger: @ElieAbiLahoud: those dates are already allocated. For your session, we     (1G5AAAA)

need to decide between November 7 and December 12     (1G5AAAB)

[11:16] ElieAbiLahoud: @Michael, misunderstood the meaning of "between" - Semantics!     (1G5AAAC)

[11:15] Mike Bennett: Dec 12 is less ideal for me.     (1G5AAAD)

[11:16] Michael Grüninger: Ok, let's go with November 7 for S4 (Ontology-based Financial Standards)     (1G5AAAE)

[11:16] Adam Wyner: Mention of the ACE OWL-NL input and output tool as being useful. I'd be     (1G5AAAF)

interested if there has been progress with this tool. Last time I used it, the output from an     (1G5AAAG)

ontology to NL was rather suspect. But, the intention is in the right direction.     (1G5AAAH)

[11:16] Mike Bennett: BillMcCarthy votes for Dec 12 (via email). So let's go with that and I'll make it work.     (1G5AAAI)

[11:16] ElieAbiLahoud: @MikeBennett, I have no preference then, I'll adapt     (1G5AAAJ)

[11:19] Peter P. Yim: @MikeBennett, BillMcCarthy & ElieAbiLahoud - we already have something scheduled     (1G5AAAK)

for Dec-12 - the S7 (S7. How ontologies can help with the formal specification of the natural     (1G5AAAL)

language standards) team just reserved that date - does Nov-7 work for you guys?     (1G5AAAM)

[11:20] Mike Bennett: Nov 7 works for me, checking again with Bill now (he had voted for 12th).     (1G5AAAN)

[11:27] Mike Bennett: BillMcCarthy can do Nov 7 as well - so I can confirm we are all 3 on track for     (1G5AAAO)

the Nov 7 session.     (1G5AAAP)

[11:17] Adam Wyner: Mention of some of the literature on ACE for NL to FOL representations, e.g.     (1G5AAAQ)

health rules and policy.     (1G5AAAR)

[11:17] Tara Athan: @Adam - where do standards come in, in the case of ACE, for example?     (1G5AAAT)

[11:21] Adam Wyner: @Simon. Thanks. I know that paper. I did something similar for regulations.     (1G5AAAU)

Reading the details, there are significant issues to resolve in using ACE (and I'm very pro ACE).     (1G5AAAV)

[11:21] Adam Wyner: @Tara - I'm not clear what the phrase "How ontologies can help with the formal     (1G5AAAW)

specification of the natural language standards" means, so would appreciate the authors of the     (1G5AAAX)

phrase to clarify.     (1G5AAAY)

[11:26] Ken Baclawski: @Adam - Standards are nearly always specified using a document written in a     (1G5AAAZ)

natural language. The term "natural language standard" in this context means "standard whose     (1G5AAAAA)

definitive document is written in natural language".     (1G5AAAAB)

[11:34] Adam Wyner: @Ken - OK. That interpretation. That is different from 'standards of natural     (1G5AAAAC)

language', which seems to me another reading, but not the desired one.     (1G5AAAAD)

[11:20] Benjamin Grosof: wrt NL session: I too am very interested, and this is related to     (1G5AAAAE)

[11:21] Benjamin Grosof: wrt financial-area session: I too am very interested, and this is related to     (1G5AAAAG)

FIBO's rules area which I co-lead.     (1G5AAAAH)

[11:22] Benjamin Grosof: The session dates we're talking about work for me for NL (12/12 - good) and     (1G5AAAAI)

financial-area (11/17 - OK).     (1G5AAAAJ)

[11:23] anonymous morphed into Thomas Getgood     (1G5AAAAK)

[11:24] Adam Wyner: The NL date of 12/12 does not work for me. Conference 12/11-13.     (1G5AAAAL)

[11:26] Peter P. Yim: == Peter P. Yim moderating Open discussion-II: Scheduling the RulesReasoningLP sessions     (1G5AAAAM)

[11:35] Peter P. Yim: Benjamin Grosof / Peter P. Yim: a lot of the background/tutorial material can be     (1G5AAAAO)

recorded offline and made available (hosted in the Ontolog archives) as "mandatory" reading for the     (1G5AAAAP)

session participants     (1G5AAAAQ)

[11:39] Tara Athan: @Benjamin - that sounds fine to me.     (1G5AAAAR)

[11:39] Harold Boley: With input from Mike Dean and all, Adrian Paschke and I could help organizing R3.     (1G5AAAAS)

Common Logic, RuleML and RIF.     (1G5AAAAT)

[11:39] Benjamin Grosof: Suggestion: RulesReasoningLP session 1 title/description: I would add ",     (1G5AAAAU)

including Concepts and Foundations of Rulelog, Logic Programming and Semantic Web Rules". ...     (1G5AAAAV)

[response - Peter P. Yim: the original title actually expands to "Ontology, Rules, and Logic Programming     (1G5AAAAW)

for Reasoning and Applications (RulesReasoningLP): Survey and Introduction" and the session is     (1G5AAAAX)

intended to lay out the scope for the entire mini-series, survey the technology landscape, and cite     (1G5AAAAY)

use cases and applications to motivate the sessions that will follow (as     (1G5AAAAZ)

you and Leo can deliberate on the final title when you two planning out the session in detail. ...     (1G5AAAAAB)

Note also, that we have had presentations on Common Logic and Rulelog in the Ontolog archives     (1G5AAAAAC)

[11:40] Benjamin Grosof: I would be glad to help with organizing RulesReasoningLP sessions R2-R4 as     (1G5AAAAAE)

well as with session R1.     (1G5AAAAAF)

[11:40] Benjamin Grosof: Adrian Paschke would be good as a co-lead for R3. Mike Dean is out on medical     (1G5AAAAAG)

work leave currently.     (1G5AAAAAH)

[11:41] Benjamin Grosof: A good R5 (or R6) session would be on Natural Language (NL).     (1G5AAAAAI)

[11:43] Benjamin Grosof: wrt R3: Tara would indeed be a good panelist.     (1G5AAAAAJ)

[11:44] Benjamin Grosof: wrt R1: I think it makes most sense for me to speak at R1, hence maybe not     (1G5AAAAAK)

be a chair of the session esp. while presenting.     (1G5AAAAAL)

[11:45] Benjamin Grosof: wrt R1 scope: cover use cases and tools as well as concepts and foundations.     (1G5AAAAAM)

[11:46] Benjamin Grosof: wrt R2: Pascal Hitzler would be good to ask as a panelist. I'm not sure he's     (1G5AAAAAN)

up for being a co-chair but we can see.     (1G5AAAAAO)

[11:49] Peter P. Yim: Leo should contact Pascal to confirm his availability     (1G5AAAAAP)

[11:50] Benjamin Grosof: wrt R1: Henson Graves also feels that we should present use cases - incl. as     (1G5AAAAAQ)

challenges as yet not satisfactorily solved as well as past ones already "done".     (1G5AAAAAR)

[11:51] Peter P. Yim: Henson Graves and Ken Baclawski need to touch base offline some time soon too (since     (1G5AAAAAS)

we weren't able to get a mutual consent from both of them here.)     (1G5AAAAAT)

[11:52] GaryBergCross: Have to drop off call now but will check email for any updates.     (1G5AAAAAU)

[11:42] Peter P. Yim: Henson Graves - request that we have a dedicated mailing list for RulesReasoningLP     (1G5AAAAAV)

[11:53] Benjamin Grosof: wrt R1-R4: little plan for action items is the ff. Peter, please create     (1G5AAAAAW)

mailing list of people, send that out to Benjamin G, Henson G, Harold B, then we'll take it from     (1G5AAAAAX)

there to coordinate with Leo and the other proposed session chairs/panelists.     (1G5AAAAAY)

[11:54] Peter P. Yim: [action] Peter will create the new mailing list and auto-subscribe those who were     (1G5AAAAAZ)

at the 7/25 brainstorm ... and invite those who we will potentially engage as panelists     (1G5AAAAAAA)

[11:58] Peter P. Yim: join us again, next Thursday Sep-19, for the Ontology Summit 2014 Topic Brainstorm     (1G5AAAAAAB)

will start early (see details on session page)     (1G5AAAAAAD)

[11:59] Adam Wyner: Thanks bye.     (1G5AAAAAAE)

[11:59] Peter P. Yim: great session - we accomplished practically everything we meant to get done at     (1G5AAAAAAF)

this session!     (1G5AAAAAAG)
