    • Peter: for time being please use the [oor-forum] mailing list (caption it with [nsf07061-proposal]) as the working platform, and only use the Friday calls for sync-up purposes (don't wait till Friday to do the work) ... a separate (password protected) list - [oor-nsf07061] (to be updated to [oor-nsf07601]) - will be created for use by the proposal team     (1F18H)
    • Leo: suggest everyone writes up their own "activities" as well as "reasons and rationale (relative to their contribution)" that they will be contributing ... that should form the basis of the 7-page description, which is the key portion of the prelim-proposal     (1F18I)
    • Bruce: we need a vision and how we can see this work (repository) can be sustained     (1F18J)
      • Frank: sustainability plan will be important ... expecting real data collections (on top of metadata and ontology) ... pick two areas as examples? (not to be too narrow)     (1F18J1)
    • Bruce: participating principal players (and organizations?) needs to be formally "on board" and in a specific capacity     (1F18K)

    • Ken will notify people of this collaborative effort and let all on the OOR team know, so that others could participate - done! ref.     (1F18Q)

      • (candidate participants') should send in a short write-up of their thoughts on how this proposal could go, their vision, their contributions, the activities, personnel involved, etc.     (1F18Q2)
      • send the writeup to Ken Baclawski & K_Goodier) by end-of-day Wed 2008.10.15, so they can be synthesized by Thursday (and come back to us with a strawman for the approach and content of our joint proposal) which we could, then, discuss, as a team at the next conference call on Fri 2008.10.17     (1F18Q3)
    • note that NSF US participants only - we should include this too when letting the rest of the OOR-team know     (1F18R)
    • Peter will create a separate archived mailing list (with a password protected archive) - [oor-nsf07061] - for this project (-done / ppy 2008.10.14-10:00am PDT) - (to be updated to [oor-nsf07601])     (1F18S)
      • this list will be exclusively for those who are involved in the joint proposal; the archive will be password protected; and will have a "team only" caption; the list archives is not intended to be opened to public access now or in the future     (1F18S1)
      • further proposal work will be transacted on this list; things that can be shared with the rest of the oor-team will be posted by the co-leads to the wiki or the [oor-forum] list     (1F18S2)
      • personal and confidential information (like salaries, etc.) should not even be posted to the list (despite the fact that the archives is password protected) and should only be sent to Ken Baclawski alone (as team co-lead), who will be doing the synthesis and compilations on behalf of the proposal team.     (1F18S3)
      • turns out the solicitation number should have been NSF 07-601 (wrongly shown as 07-061 previously) ... therefore all reference (e.g. mailing list, etc.) need to be re-done to reflect a [oor-nsf07601] (or similar) label! =ppy/2008.10.15-17:25     (1F18S4)
  • Discussion (today)     (1F20)

    • Peter: [oor-nsf07601] team workspace now in working order     (1F20D)

    • on project vision and approach:     (1F20F)
      • Bruce: refer to what NIH-NCI has done ... caBIG (bioinformatics grid) ... node on a grid ... sustainability based on people's self interest     (1F20F1)
      • Neil & Ken: federated ... similar to the above     (1F20F2)
      • Mark: the domain (NSF's ... not NIH's)     (1F20F3)
      • Peter: ontologies as the next generation standards ... and hence the need for an OOR     (1F20F4)
    • Mark: for this nsf solicitation, the emphasis is on the data ...     (1F20G)
  • the data collection we will be picking     (1F21)
    • Neil: biological, environmental, ... (encyclopedia of life, ...)     (1F21A)
    • John: data collections? ... not immediately ... oceanographic, possibly     (1F21B)
    • Mark: biomedical content (the bio and not medical contents) ... also developing technogy here not funded by other programs (to avoid conflicts)     (1F21C)
  • the [oor-nsf07601] mailing list will be the prime platform for project communications ... the weekly conference calls should only be used to help sync everyone up.     (1F23)
