UpperOntologySummit Joint Communique Preparation Meeting - Tue 2006-03-14     (1)

Session Details     (1A)

  • Shared-screen support (VNC session) will be started 5 minutes before the call at: http://vnc2.cim3.net:5800/     (1A6)
    • view-only password: "uos"     (1A6A)
    • if you plan to be logging into this shared-screen option (which the speaker may be navigating), and you are not familiar with the process, please try to call in 5 minutes before the start of the session so that we can work out the connection logistics. Help on this will generally not be available once the presentation starts.     (1A6B)
    • people behind corporate firewalls may have difficulty accessing this. If that is the case, please download the slides linked to the respective agenda item below and runing them locally. The speaker will prompt you to advance the slides during the talk.     (1A6C)
  • This session, like all our other events, is open to the public. Non-UOS-Conveners are welcomed to attend as observers.     (1A8)
  • Please note that this session will be recorded, and the audio archives is expected to be made available as open content to our community membership and the public at-large under our prevailing open IPR policy.     (1A10)

Agenda     (1D)

Tue 2006-03-14     (1D1)

7:30 - 8:15am -- UOS-conveners to congregate at the continental breakfast (see map below), we can all head over to the meeting room together.     (1D2)

8:30 - 10:00am -- Session 1:     (1D3)

Opening: LeoObrst and PatCassidy (15 min. total) - slides     (1D4A)
Upper Ontology custodians (15 min. each) the issues (feasibility, utility, ...) from their perspective with respect to an interrelated-UO, joint communique and beyond. - part-1     (1D4B)

10:30 - 12:00 noon -- adjourn to allow everyone to participate at the Plenary session of the NIST interoperability Week event (session details)     (1D7)

1:00 - 5:00pm -- Session 2:     (1D8)

1:00~1:05pm Opening for the afternoon session (LeoObrst)     (1D9)
1:05~1:50pm     (1D10)
Upper Ontology custodians (15 min. each) the issues (feasibility, utility, ...) from their perspective with respect to an interrelated-UO, joint communique and beyond. - part-2     (1D10A)
NicolaGuarino (also representing AldoGangemi's contribution) - slides     (1D10A2)
1:50~3:50pm Review major technical issues and address them; also consider technical next steps. - All UOS-conveners     (1D11)
Opening for this segment (LeoObrst)     (1D11A)
Address top issues (4~6) - 90 minutes total - 5 minutes to frame issue, then discuss, then 5 minutes to draw conclusion     (1D11B)
    • DagobertSoergel: In preparation for mapping one could dissect an ontology into ever smaller pieces, possibly down to individual axioms. Each piece would have to be packaged with the minimal context needed for its proper interpretation, where context would include basic assumptions, scope (pragmatic assumptions, as pointed out particularly by Doug Lenat), axioms or other ontology elements on which the given element depends, and perhaps more. These contexts could in turn be arranged in modular packages for ease of specification.     (1D15A)

to DOLCE and would like to see this work extended to other ontologies. The task of 'dissecting' is itself proving to be a very valuable exercise, since it forces connections to be made explicit that otherwise might not be. Thus there is a lot of interesting work between the ontology-as-a-whole and the individual axioms. Subtheories of ontologies seems to be a very profitable grainsize for serious (i.e., semantic) mappings (i.e., theory morphisms). . . . See the examples jumped over briefly in my talk earlier today at the UOS on such modular specifications. Increasing that modularity still further would be very valuable and something we'd like to support.     (1D16)

Discuss next steps (2) - (30 min. total)     (1D18A)
(a) mapping, intersecting and/or relating UO's to each other, and     (1D18A1)
(b) UOS event summary and issues white paper for prospective publication (FOIS 2006 Conference, Applied Ontology journal, etc.) - all conveners     (1D18A2)
Break (10 min.)     (1D19)
4:00~5:00pm Adopt the final joint communique, discuss programmatic next steps (funding opportunities, continuation of this work, etc.). - All UOS-conveners     (1D20)
