The EC invited Ali Hashemi - newly confirmed co-chair the of the IAOA 
Visibility and Public Relations Committee - to join the meeting to discuss how 
to improve the visibility and the public relations of the association. The EC 
recognized that the Association needs to make an extra effort to publicize its 
view, activities and initiatives. One important goal in this effort is to 
familiarize the community on the goals of the Association, ongoing work and 
ways to interact.
The EC has decided that Ali Hashemi will be regularly invited to the EC 
meetings with the specific task to help us (re)designing and implementing our 
visibility and communication strategy, and immediately convert into 
communication and visibility actions what the Association does.    (09)

The EC also encourages members to be active on the IAOA member mailing list and 
on other channels (e.g. social networks) to spread ontology news and 
discussions.    (010)

The Standardisation Coordination Committee reported that the proposed standard 
initiative on Ontology Integration and Interoperability (OntoIOp) was formally 
accepted as an ISO/TC37/SC3 new work item (during the June 2011 meeting in 
Seoul, Korea). This work - identified as ISO/TC37/SC3 NP 17347 - will soon 
commence.    (011)

On behalf of IAOA, the EC welcomes this exciting news. While IAOA does not 
endorse specific standards, IAOA may help inform standardization activities and 
provide guidance when it comes to specific issues, like those relating to the 
definition or the role of ontologies. The Association will do so, as need be, 
through the Standardisation Coordination Committee.    (012)
