Subject: Kickoff conference call for the Content Committee - finding a
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:
Friday, February 1, 1:30-3:00pm EST
Monday, February 4, 11:30am-1:00pm EST
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.
