... some of the items on the page now are from the previous call(s), and will be updated as we progressed on this meeting.     (1E30)

  • IPR issues and the planning of an "IPR" Panel Session for both OOR & BioPortal that we will scheduled into the not-too-distant future     (1E32)
    • Cameron Ross will be joining Mark, Dave Rubenson and Peter P. Yim to help get these session organized     (1E32A)
    • John Bateman: Open question: has the IPR issue been discussed with respect to the content of the OOR yet? I would think that ontologies, ontology modules and links between modules (in the form of more or less complex bundles of mappings) may need to be fixed with ownership/distribution and use licenses despite the first O in OOR... is this considered?     (1E32B)
  • OOR-work Progress at NEU:     (1E37)
    • Ken: students have produce a few hundred use cases (lots of duplicates, of course) -- not exactly OOR, but related, with emphasis in gatekeeping ... project is actually called "Keeper"     (1E37A)
    • Ken: students are interested in getting their work licensed and published/released.     (1E37B)
      • have instructed student to consider picking some Creative Commons or Open Source Licence     (1E37B1)
    • Ken/2010.04.16: use cases description ontology now online     (1E37C)
    • Ken/2010.04.16: gatekeeping codes will be ready fairly soon     (1E37D)
  • OOR-work Progress at Raytheon-BBN:     (1E38)
    • Jim: reported on progress with federation work ... (Jim, Dan or Mike: please elaborate here, if you can get around to it.)     (1E38A)
      • Jim's development OOR instance is able to federate from oor-01f (as the remote host) ... it works pretty well (and updates every minute!)     (1E38A1)
      • Jim will be presenting their work on Feb-19     (1E38A2)
    • Mike / Jim: we could offer this back to the BioPortal folks, and this could be discussed during the Feb-19 session     (1E38B)
    • Mike/2010.03.19: Jim and Dan has left BBN, therefore no new development for a little while     (1E38C)
      • next move is to migrate the BBN SVN content to semwebcentral (but probably not within the next two weeks)     (1E38C1)
    • Todd/2010.04.16 - still need to stand up an instance at Raytheon ... can't quite access the BBN instance yet     (1E38D)
  • SIO Project     (1E43)
    • try to come up with more clarity as to what should be discussed under SIO and/or OOR (ONTOLOG too, for that matter) and possibly even start a fix meeting schedule for SIO-dev work     (1E43A)
    • Cameron: we probably should wait till we have the SIO Mission Statement from John F. Sowa before trying to make this conversation     (1E43B)
    • Peter: since [sio-dev] is intended for implementation level conversation, and we aren't quite implementing things yet, maybe most of the discussions that are going on at [sio-dev] now actually belongs to [ontolog-forum] (those specific to OOR may possibly be on [oor-forum]) and then we should only start using [sio-dev] after we have started to implement things (similar to the case on how [oor-dev] is being used.)     (1E43C)
