Hi Corey:
Just saw your message on ontolog.
I hope your ears weren't burning because Christian Huemer and I were just talking about you last week.  Not for your standards acumen, but for your dancing with Nita Sharma at the closing of ebXML at the City Hall gathering in Vienna.  His university was having a ball nearby featuring the same kind of Viennese waltzes you were doing.  Not a bad idea I guess when you count Johann Strauss as an alumnus.
Our UN/CEFACT work is proceeding well, and I am also working with ISO open-edi.  Someday, I hope to make it back to OMG to try to align with BP efforts there, but I am a little overwhelmed at present.
Whatever happened to Carsten Riemer?
all the best,
Bill McCarthy

Subject: [ontolog-forum] OMG Architecture Ecosystem Initiative

This is a public notice for a new activity of the Object Management Group (OMG), the Architecture Ecosystem SIG (AE SIG), to provide for improved definition and integration of models and modeling languages within an ecosystem where modeling tools and languages can be used together more effectively.  Modeling in this context includes all forms of structured knowledge representation, including: Business Models, Vocabularies, Ontologies, Object Models, System Models, SOA Models, Data Models, Schema, Process Models, Domain Specific Languages, etc.


This effort should be of particular interest to the Ontology & Ontolog community, the experience and background of this community is very welcome in the AESIG effort.  There is ongoing debate as to “how formal” language definitions should be and the best ways to represent both formal and informal modeling languages in an ecosystem.  Please see and contribute to the wiki for a better understanding of the goals of the group and the solution options that have been presented thus far.


The summary charter for the group is as follows:

The mission of the Architecture Ecosystem SIG (AE SIG) is to work with OMG domain and platform task forces, other relevant OMG SIGs, external entities and related industry groups to facilitate the creation of a common architectural ecosystem. This ecosystem will support the creation, analysis, integration and exchange of information between modeling languages across different domains, viewpoints and from differing authorities. In particular the need for business and enterprise level architectural viewpoints must be better integrated with the technical viewpoints that define systems to address enterprise needs. The AE SIG will focus on the capability to define and integrate languages and models in various viewpoints and support other groups that will focus on the specific viewpoints required for their specific domains. The set of viewpoints, supporting models and supporting technologies will comprise the ecosystem.



This notice is being sent to groups that may have interest or expertise in this area, your participation is invited.  Full participation is limited to OMG members but the community at large may monitor the group and have access to the wiki and mail list (see below).  Instructions for obtaining a wiki ID for write access is on the wiki.  The AE SIG membership feel there is substantial pent-up user demand for better integration of their tools and languages and that tractable solutions are available.  We look forward to working with other individuals and groups in this endeavor.  Please do not hesitate to contact either of the chairs for additional information.
