Notes on the Mon 2010.01.04-11:00am EST conference call     (1B)

Conference call details:     (1B1)

Notes for the Call: [ audio archive ]     (1B6)

  • preparing for the Jan-21 first OASIS QUOMOS TC conference call     (1B6B)
  • Progress/status review from deliverable champions - (deferred to the Jan-7 community session)     (1B6C)
    • Pat Hayes - see preliminary notes at: UoM_Ontology_Standard_CLIF_Draft ... and like to discuss:     (1B6C1)
      • 1. I've introduced a new idea into the ontology, of 'measurement event', to try to deal with the VIM meta-issue of whether 'real quantities' exist and the ubiquity or otherwise of errors and estimates. I'd like to outline the motivation for this and get feedback, especially negative.     (1B6C1A)
      • 2. So far, I can see no rational way to distinguish the concepts of [dimension] and [quantity kind], and so propose to identify them (ie treat these as synonyms.) Again, I would like feedback/discussion, especially negative.     (1B6C1B)

Notes on the Mon 2009.12.07-11:00am EST conference call     (1D)

Conference call details:     (1D1)

Notes for the Call: [ audio archive ]     (1D6)

  • Review and adopt agenda     (1D6A)
    • this will be a technical work session; it is suggested that admin issues be deferred to next week's call     (1D6A1)
  • Discussion: dealing with "institutionalized vagueness" in QUOMOS     (1D6B)
    • Pat: use of the category "reference" ... and utilizing that to preserve vocabulary?     (1D6B2)
      • Steve: in favor of preserving the VIM as far as possible ... but not disguising the hollowness of the concept     (1D6B2A)
      • Peter: I am totally in favor of Pat's suggested use of the "reference" category to preserve vocabulary. I think this is an important approach too, and can help us get buy-in's from legacy standard bearers, assuming our vision is to have every natural language standard has an "ontology" counterpart as part of that standard.     (1D6B2B)
      • Hans-Peter: ... properties ... (please insert your key points here after the call ... thanks, =ppy)     (1D6B2C)
      • Steve to Pat: any examples of how other ontologies handle cases like this? ... Pat: haven't seen similar cases (like this, which is somewhat of a political compromise.)     (1D6B2D)
      • Steve: optimistic that Chuck Ehrlick will engage ... Pat: can we get copies of his earlier presentations if he had talked about it?     (1D6B2E)
      • Peter: great if we could have Chuck and others who represent different sides of this political position to give a talk, that would be great. Our Jan-7 community session will be a good time.     (1D6B2F)
  • Pat: another issue - how much of the VIM is in our scope     (1D6C)
    • e.g. error, measure techniques, ... metrological concepts would be beyond our scope     (1D6C1)
    • our scope for QUOMOS (at least for now) would mainly be in the VIM's Clause-1     (1D6C2)
  • any preparation for the First QUOMOS TC Meeting - tentatively, 21-Jan-2010     (1D6D)
  • discussed possibilities of HansPeter_de_Koning's participation in the QUOMOS TC, be it as a representative from ESA, OMG, or individually. Also considering if Hans-Peter can be our point person for the OWL editorial group.     (1D6G)
