SWAO SIG Mission     (1C)

The Semantic Web Applied Ontology SIG aims to bridge the gap between the Semantic Web and the IAOA communities. This SIG's goals are to actively support communication and collaboration and to promote the use of applied ontology, with our colleagues in the Semantic Web (including Linked Data) community. In addition, we want to better understand how the Semantic Web community��s problem spaces impact applied ontology. And conversely, how applied ontology can enhance the efforts of these communities and others. (We view applied ontology as using ontological analysis methods and reasoning to address real-world problems.)     (1C1)

Often the two communities perceive that they have little in common, whereas potentially there is much in common - including goals, techniques, technologies, and interest in well-engineered ontologies and their uses. Many of us in IAOA promote and use Semantic Web technologies. Similarly, many in the Semantic Web community advocate more rigorous and principled ontologies (based on ontological analysis), and use semantic technologies and reasoning to address many issues such as dealing with vast amounts of heterogeneous data on the Web. Our goal is to assist each side in bringing their perspectives to the table, and thus facilitate two-way collaboration and technology integration.     (1C2)

In order to promote communication, this SIG is event-focused. We are concentrating on bringing together the individuals, techniques and technologies of both communities for mutually beneficial interchanges. Our activities focus on organizing and supporting joint workshops, collaborative authoring of journal articles across the communities, and hosting related activities such as participation in summer schools in both communities, and joint tutorials which would help build bridges.     (1C3)

      • Unfamiliar with how to do this on Skype? ...     (1G1B2)
        • Add the contact "joinconference" to your skype contact list first. To participate in the teleconference, make a skype call to "joinconference", then open the dial pad (see platform-specific instructions below) and enter the Conference ID: 843758# when prompted.     (1G1B2A)
        • you may connect to (the skypeID) "joinconference" whether or not it indicates that it is online (i.e. even if it says it is "offline," you should still be able to connect to it.)     (1G1B2B)
      • Can't find Skype Dial pad? ...     (1G1B3)
        • for Windows Skype users: Can't find Skype Dial pad? ... it's under the "Call" dropdown menu as "Show Dial pad"     (1G1B3A)
        • for Linux Skype users: please note that the dial-pad is only available on v4.1 (or later; or on the earlier Skype versions 2.x,) if the dialpad button is not shown in the call window you need to press the "d" hotkey to enable it. ... (ref.)     (1G1B3B)
    • instructions: once you got access to the page, click on the "settings" button, and identify yourself (by modifying the Name field from "anonymous" to your real name, like "JaneDoe").     (1G2A)
    • You can indicate that you want to ask a question verbally by clicking on the "hand" button, and wait for the moderator to call on you; or, type and send your question into the chat window at the bottom of the screen.     (1G2B)
    • thanks to the folks, one can now use a jabber/xmpp client (e.g. gtalk) to join this chatroom. Just add the room as a buddy - (in our example case here) ... Handy for mobile devices!     (1G2C)
  • Discussions and Q & A:     (1G3)
    • Nominally, when a presentation is in progress, the moderator will mute everyone, except for the speaker.     (1G3A)
    • To un-mute, press "*7" ... To mute, press "*6" (please mute your phone, especially if you are in a noisy surrounding, or if you are introducing noise, echoes, etc. into the conference line.)     (1G3B)
    • we will usually save all questions and discussions till after all presentations are through. You are encouraged to jot down questions onto the chat-area in the mean time (that way, they get documented; and you might even get some answers in the interim, through the chat.)     (1G3C)
