On Thursday, February 7th, 2008, the highly productive launch of this year’s Ontology Summit took place. Detailed minutes of the launch can be viewed at http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2008_02_07, supplemented as usual with a full audio recording of the event (see http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2008_02_07#nid18Z2).


At the launch, four committees that have been formed to support the summit were introduced. Their principal responsibilities are:


·         Organizing Committee, charged with the overall responsibility for the summit

·         Content Committee to manage the ongoing discussion beginning with the launch and lasting until the face-to-face meeting in April

·         Logistics Committee overseeing the arrangements for the face-to-face meeting

·         Advisory Committee responsible for outreach and liaison with other relevant organizations


The five initial discussion threads were also identified, along with those responsible for tracking and synthesizing the discusions:


       Communiqué and Mission Statement

       Synthesis by the Organizing Committee

       Ontology Repository Architecture

       Synthesis by Michelle Raymond and Ravi Sharma

       Ontology of Ontologies

       Synthesis by Michael Gruninger and Pat Hayes

       Quality / Gatekeeping

       Synthesis by Barry Smith (co-champion was solicited)

       State of the Art Repository Work

       Synthesis by Frank Olken


There was strong involvement from those on the call, and everyone is encouraged to join in the ongoing technical discussions that will be taking place on the [ontology-summit] mailing list.
