We really nead to make sure our meeting in Minneapolis progresses the already defined work. I am afraid that what you are proposing would significantly impact on that work. I think you might be better off to have an ontology meeting outside of the Minneapolis meeting, as I am not sure that we can spare the resources..

> (2) Three separate sessions with individual sub-committees
> (a) with Library Content SC
> (b) with Naming & Design Rules SC
> (c) with Context Methodology & Context Driver SCs
> (3) A gathering of a sub-group of UBL members who

> (a) brainstorm and to map out what should be done
> (b) discuss how we should approach and continue

> (c) get organized (propose forming an SC;

> (d) make formal proposals on institutionalizing
> continuing activities.

> (i) a 1.5-hour working lunch session on day-1 (Mon
> 03-Jun-02) with the entire UBL membership,
> (ii) say, 1 hour, within the day-2 morning (9:00-12:00)

> (v) continued work in developing examples of ontological

> within LCSC during days-3 & -4
> (vi) Day-5 9:30 - 10:00 (Fri 07-Jun-02) pre-closing
> plenary presentation of onotological
> analysis as applied to UBL.
> 3. Due to other unavoidable conflicts, both Leo and myself

> (i) do 1 (a+b), and even some 2 (b+c) during the day-1
> lunch session,
> (ii) do 2(a) during day-2 morning,
> (iii) do 3(a+b+c) during day-2 lunch,
> (iv) do more 2(b+c) if necessay during day-2 afternoon,
> (v) do 4 during day-3 & day-4.
> (vi) do a presentation of the week's work & 3(d) during
> the day-5 morning session.
> 5. I've also requested with Tim, earlier, for phone
