On Thursday 11-October-2007, we had another very well attended 
virtual session, where Dr. Timothy Redmond from the Stanford 
Center for Biomedical Informatics Research (BMIR) Protege project 
team and Mr. Peter Yim of CIM3 presented, respectively, on their 
jointly offered "CODS - Collaborative Ontology Development 
Service and Infrastructure" and on "Distributed Ontology 
Development with Protege," as the second episode to a 2-part 
session on "Distributed Collaboration in Ontology Development 
with Protege." Ontolog co-convener, Mr. Kurt Conrad chaired the 
session, and Professor Mark Musen, head of Stanford BMIR was with 
us to introduce the speakers.    (01)

Mr. Yim provided details on the infrastructure on which CODS is 
hosted. Dr. Redmond delved into some of the intricacies of the 
Protege Server, and shared with the community his insights into 
distributed ontology development using the Protege Client/Server 
mode. On the occasion, the CODS service and infrastructure was 
offered to the Ontolog and Protege communities, and members of 
the community are invited to run their open collaborative 
ontology development projects on it.    (02)

Three specific open solicitations were made:    (03)

(i)  members with open projects to run on CODS are welcomed to 
contact Peter Yim <peter.yim@xxxxxxxx> (to get their projects 
started) and to sign up for the newly created [cods-user] mailing 
list.    (04)

(ii) a small team of CODS-administrators needs to be formed, and 
volunteers are solicited. Anyone interested should also e-mail 
<peter.yim@xxxxxxxx>.    (05)

(iii) it has been observed that an improved infrastructure for 
open public ontology repository and registry is need, for the 
industry at large. Our plan is to gather enough interest and 
support so that a world-class infrastructure can be put together 
collaboratively by all concerned. Suggestions for candidate 
organizations and individuals who could be enlisted to form an 
organizing committee for this initiative are welcomed.    (06)

Again, thank you, Dr. Redmond, Mr. Yim, Professor Musen and Mr. 
Conrad for another very informative Ontolog session.  And, as 
always, our appreciations go out to all who joined us at the 
event; especially for their contributions to the rich discussion 
we had during the last segment of the session.    (07)

Proceedings of the session are captured on our wiki page, at:

the podcast of it, is now available - see:

... This event contributes to yet another useful piece to the 
body of knowledge on ontology and ontological engineering that 
our community is building together. Thank you again, Dr. Timothy 
Redmond and everyone!    (010)

Best regards. =ppy    (011)

P.S.    (012)
