Virtual Meeting of 23 June 2011    (07)

The EC was informed about the standardization initiative ISO TC37/SC3 - OntoIOp 
("Ontology integration and interoperability").
The EC confirmed that, although it does not take position toward single 
standards, it is important to set up a standardization coordination committee 
to stay connected with these efforts.
A "charter" for the standardization coordination committee will be prepared and 
discussed after the summer.    (09)

The EC acknowledges that the IAOA committees and SIGs are not actively using 
the mailing list and web site.
It is recommended that  that the EC members involved in Committees and SIGs 
help kickstart the process (agreed to in recent Draft ByLaws discussions) so we 
can more actively engage our membership. A message to the EC and the Chairs 
will be prepared.    (010)

The President will consult with some members of the Advisory Board on the role 
IAOA can play in the biomedical ontology community to provide value and impact.    (011)

Giancarlo Guizzardi and Maureen Donnelly, Programme Chairs for FOIS 2012, are 
working on the conference organization.
The call for paper for FOIS 2012 is being prepared. The EC agrees to organize 
joint sessions and/or panels with the co-located conference ICBO.    (012)

The EC will complete the analysis of the bylaws by the summer and soon after 
will distribute the draft to the IAOA members.    (013)

A review of the "IAOA virtual panel session[1]" hosted at Ontolog Forum on 
26-May-2011 was made. Full proceedings of the session will be available on the 
IAOA website, so anyone can get a more updated presentation of the Association.
