This subgroup was formed out of a request from the library content group in the interest of identifying the role of ontological engineering in our work.

We have set aside monday lunchtime for a presentation from Leo Orbst. for those interested in developing this, there will also be a tuesday lunchtime meeting to work up a UBL position paper for this work. a report on this group will form part of the LCSC report to the closing plenary.
We are trying not to interfere with other UBL issues, but there is a sustained opinion that this work is relevant and of immediate benefit to UBL. we just need some face to face discussion to develop this to a point where others can evaluate this position. the proposed agenda attempts to accomodate this and i do not belive it will impact on the other work of UBL teams.
I am confident that we will get value from this and aplogise if it was presented as something distractive to the group.

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..
