List of attendees     (6)

1. Housekeeping     (7)

  • bad link to SWAO official website from IAOA SIGs page (and misnamed)     (7A1)
  • add SWAO SIG to the list in the body of the page     (7A2)

[Action] Leo will help resolving the bugs - contact Oliver.     (7A3)

1.2 SIG Wiki landing page     (7B)

  • Suggestion: the landing page for the Wiki instead of being the current call would be something else, for example a listing of previous meetings and a notice saying when the next meeting is.     (7B1)
  • Suggestion 2: list other events and things of interest potentially (High level events e.g. workshops).     (7B2)
  • Consensus: One-off ("interesting") meetings - we want those linked to from the SWAO web page, as a one-off link and doesn't need to use the query on the wiki. These would have other attributes e.g. name and place.     (7B3)

[Action] Mike Bennett will suggest something for the landing page.     (7B4)

  • Discussion on using using the query facilities that exist in the mediaWiki to automate the update of the SWAO events page.     (7B5)
  • Suggestion: have the same query embedded on the SWAO web page as well.     (7B6)

[Action] Ken will see about the automated update of the list of meetings.     (7B7)

  • Discussion: for future meetings, email thread and link, or (as for Sept) have nice notes on the wiki page?     (7B8)
  • Suggestion: send out an email which points to the minutes, and have the minutes themselves nicely formatted in the wiki page.     (7B9)
  • Consensus: preference is to have the minutes on the wiki and the email is just a pointer to these, but the volunteer can choose to do this simply by sending an email to the list.     (7B10)

[Action] Elie to capture the minutes of this meeting and try to upload them on Wiki.     (7B11)

1.3 Migration of the old wiki content     (7C)

[Action] Ken will be creating meeting pages for the previous meetings (Then the minutes for those previous meetings could be simple links to email in some cases; others have been written up as a document which can be extracted). [Note] First meeting is the only one that's different - was in a different format and is on a different page. [Note] In the minutes on the wiki, the action items are tagged with "Action Item"     (7C1)

2. Education     (8)

  • Education committee is interested in coordinating.     (8A)

[Action] Leo to drop a note to Education committee     (8B)

  • Suggestion: Talked about proposing Book as a possible activity for the Summit.     (8C)
  • Consensus: need co-ordination among SWAO, IAOA, OS Organizing Ctee; Ontolog Board of Trustees.     (8D)

3. Brainstorming of things we as a SIG want to bring to the Thursday Ontology Summit     (9)

  • Suggestion: a book to mine the 'embedded' knowledge in the Ontolog e-mail and Ontology Summits     (9A)
  • Discussion: anticipate generating slideware as training material through the Ontology Summit (OS) and the Book follows?     (9B)
  • Note: Bear in mind the main OS deliverable is always a Communique.     (9C)
  • Suggestion: OS virtual sessions might constitute the basis of tutorial material for SWAO, that would become eventual chapters of the Book.     (9D)
  • Discussion: Book structure: = structure of OS and Book Content = tutorial SWAO and then => book chapters.     (9E)

[Action] All, use 9 Oct 2014 OS meeting as an opportunity for to make these distinctions and encourage folks to get involved in this SIG.     (9F)
