After hearing from 13 of you, the surprising result is that we have the fewest “No’s” for this coming Friday, February 1st. So, with apologies to Barry Smith, Matthew West, and Leo Obrst, I think that is the best course of action. We will strive to take good notes so that a wider audience will be able to see what transpired. The added advantage is that this date gives us enough time to prepare prior to the launch of the official Summit (offline portion) on February 7th.


Peter Yim will be sending out a notice with the customary call-in information. Michelle Raymond will be chairing, with involvement from us all, I’m sure. Talk to you on February 1st.

Subject: Kickoff conference call for the Content Committee - finding a suitable time



                Those of you who participated in the Ontology Summit planning meeting held on January 22nd (see http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2008_01_22)  will know that at that call we agreed to create two committees to help shape the Summit of 2008: a Content Committee and a Logistics Committee. The Content Committee will concern itself with fleshing out the different aspects and issues surrounding the main theme of the Summit (“Toward an Open Ontology Repository”), while the Logistics Committee will work on setting up and launching the on-line discussions on those topics as well as other threads such as the previous Summits, culminating in this year’s face to face meeting scheduled for April 28-29, 2008 in Gaithersburg, MD.


As the subject line implies, this email is to find a good time for a kickoff conference call for people who would like to participate in the Content Committee and help to shape the discussion around an open ontology repository. Here are some proposed alternatives for such a call:


A)     Friday, February 1, 1:30-3:00pm EST

B)      Monday, February 4, 11:30am-1:00pm EST

C)      Wednesday, February 6, 11:30am-1:00pm EST


Please reply with your preferences on these three choices, and I will try to pick the best time.


In preparation for the call, you may want to check out a strawman set of topics at http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2008/Idea#nid18BA.
