Initiative proposed by PaolaDiMaio - pending migration of this effort to an Ontolog community project.

DRAFT (feel free to discuss/propose changes)- PaolaDiMaio/2007.09.05

Project Keywords (towards a thesaurus)


To make a list of tags to associate with our resources

  • Such list should be structured and should reflect where possible the framework
  • Such list should also serve as possible launch pad for new ideas to be incorporated in the framework at a later date (keywords not in the framework can be used )
  • The purpose of the list of tags is to start forming a semantic structure against which we can map existing and forthcoming resources
  • Quality of the list: The terms used should be unambiguos and well defined
  • We can use synonyms where more than one choice of term is possible
  • The keywords produced on this list can be used/merged with other related efforts

This project shall end when we have enough keywords to map our resources against our domain (likely to remain ongoin)


A flexible, evolving set of key terms stemming from the framework that can be used to tag the resources

Suggested Process

Phase one

1) make an initial list of Framework Keywords that define the framework (extract these from the framework statment and diagrams (paola volunteers to do this first step)

2) ask the author of each document on the wiki to extract the keywords from their document/presentation/slides onto the keywords of the framework

Phase two

set up discussion as required Merge/evolve the set of keywords using other sets of keywords produced by related efforts

Phase three

Produce a working document (deliverable)

Launch date and Meetings

As of today, 5 Septemeber - ongoing? Meetings: Online anytime, via skype, messnger etc

I am also happy to work asynch

I have opened a skype chat room (feel free to add more resources)


  • PaolaDiMaio (skype blogconthai) starts extracting Frameworkkeyterms from the FrameworkDocuments
[1], Ken Baclawski > is championing a similar exercise for artifacts collected from the

please Ontotaxo group point to the latest list of tems extracted, at least we can start looking at it? Shall we continue this thread on the ontologizing list to keep the coordination going? --PDM/2007.09.05


o " " space also causes text to appear in a monospaced font where spaces are significant (V5)

o ":" colon causes text to be indented (V6)

o "=" equals - followed by a space - creates a heading, a trailing "=" - preceded by a space - is required (V7)

o "*" asterisk creates a bulleted list (V8)

o "#" hash creates a numbered list (V9)

o ";" semicolon creates a definition list, a ":" colon is required subsequently on the same line (XP)

Repetition of the first character on the line generally increases the indentation or emphasis (VA)
