content coordination best practices.     (1D)

As facilitators of the Summit Content Committee, our purpose is to invigorate discussion within the OntologySummit2008 and assure that the community can effectively explore, debate, deliberate and capture that content through our online discourse, between the Feb-27 Launch Event and the Apr-28 & 29 (2008) face-to-face workshop.     (1E)

Ties to the Program Planners and F2F-Program Agenda     (1J7)

    • Michelle:     (1J9A)
    • Need to talk about time each group needs at the F2F for content summary and discussion.     (1J9B)
    • Suggestion from the Organizing Committee is at least half of the time be for discussions, based on breadth and depth of discussions.     (1J9C)
    • Champions can summarize or minipanel approach for presentations.     (1J9D)
    • For OOR Architecture Michelle's (and Ravi agrees) suggestion is that we present a couple of different frameworks and related architecture issues as examples.     (1J9E)
    • Concern that a panel approach may rehash thread conversations instead of bringing together concenses.     (1J9G)
    • Leo suggested:     (1J9H)
    • Short synopsis and starting position modified slightly by session chairs would help start off a Topic Session.     (1J9I)
    • On the second day if there are session "recaps" given by the session chair, those will feed into a final version of final document of Summit and may be a way of reaching consensus.     (1J9K)
    • While individuals are updating the Topic Wiki Page's with individual contributions from the group, provide not just threads but a summary. The summary in the Wiki can be incorporated in the Communique'     (1J9M)
    • The summary needs to be ready earlier than the F2F, by a week.     (1J9N)
  • F2F Session lengths and starting time     (1J10)
    • Michelle:     (1J10A)
    • How much time should be used for each of the 4 major sections presentations?     (1J10B)
    • The F2F draft agenda has different lengths of time for different topics. The first session is squeezed into 1 hour.     (1J10D)
    • This is due to a NIST policy of not being able to serve refreshments until a conference has started. It can be served at a break, but not prior to the start.     (1J10F)
    • Start at 8am instead of 8:30 am and thus have time for a longer session before the "break" and refreshments.     (1J10H)
    • Action: Peter will ask Steve Ray about having an 8am start time.     (1J10I)
  • Communique     (1J11)
    • Will contain four Sections of intellectual content and one for Second day OOR summary. That takes us through what we have done towards realizing an OOR.     (1J11B)
    • The Topic summaries and sections need to be ready earlier than the F2F, by a week.     (1J11C)

Peter Summarized the rich variety of upcoming events on 03/27, 04/03 and 04/10 that will be very varied and with rich presentations that will also have 45 minutes of Q&A time. See details here.     (1J12)

Fabian: Different Perspectives on Ontologies - agreement on all types of ontologies amenable to repositories, therefore discussion summary document is required.     (1J13)

Michelle: Mainpage Ontology of Ontologies specifically added on main Summit page. Awaiting marching orders from Leo and Mark.     (1J14)

4. New Issues:     (1J15)
