[iaoa-swao] IAOA SWAO SIG Monthly Meeting n.08, 05 June 2014

To: "'IAOA SemanticWeb-AppliedOntology SIG'" <iaoa-swao@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
From: "Frank Loebe" <frank.loebe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Date: Tue, 1 Jul 2014 23:27:35 +0200
Message-id: <00fa01cf9573$4ab11290$e01337b0$@informatik.uni-leipzig.de>
Dear all,    (01)

please find below edited notes from the June session (Jun 05, 2014). They
comprise action items for Mike Bennett, Naicong Li, and Frank Loebe.     (02)

If there are any comments or modifications, please let me know.    (03)

My apologies for the extreme delay in providing the notes. I'll comment on
this in another message, also regarding the next meeting.    (04)

Please note that I don't distribute these meeting notes to the [iaoa-member]
mailing list, since the content appears rather technical to me and thus of
low interest for the overall readership of [iaoa-member], except for the
news of Andrea's stepping down as co-chair. However, that news will also be
part of a Public Report of the IAOA-EC meeting of Jun 16, 2014 and thus
reach the membership. If anyone for any reason prefers differently regarding
the forwarding to [iaoa-member], please feel free to do so yourself or just
let me know.    (05)

I apologize for the delay,
best regards,
Frank    (06)
