I'd like to add my encouragement that folks who might be interested in joining in on any of these 1-2 day projects add their names to the "Individual Contributors" list at http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2013_Hackathon_Clinics#nid3O1R .  (This is kind of far down in the quoted email below, so I wanted to call extra attention to it).  

I've added myself, and I hope to see other willing individuals toss their names and skills into the pot. A lot of the energy, motivation, and innovation in hackathons, vocamps, and comes from the combination of people who aren't already working together, and/or new mixes of people and projects. This extended community is diverse and talented, so we have the ingredients. If you're willing and able, throw yourself into the mix!

Dear ALL,

A whole bunch of us had a very useful meeting today. See full
proceedings (including the audio archive and chat-transcripts, etc.)
under: http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2013_Software_Environments_For_Evaluating_Ontologies_CommunityInput#nid3NYL

Please review and follow-up accordingly ...

In particular, here's where we stand (wrt projects initially
identified on Feb-21):

[7:45] PeterYim: Summary of slide#5* project status ... [*see:

[7:45] PeterYim: HACKATHON

* develop/align OOR, Ontohub and OOPS! webservices/API, so that OOPS!
capabilities can be used on ontologies that are hosted on the OOR or
Ontohub ontology repository (MariaPovedaVillalon,
MariCarmenSuarezFigueroa, KenBaclawski, TillMossakowski, OliverKutz,
et al.)
-- Ontohub-OOPs! - ON

* develop/integrate "gatekeeper" functionality and API into OOR
workflow module to support verification, validation and other policies
(KenBaclawski, MaximoGurmendez, et al.)
-- OOR-KEEPER - ON; proposal received;

* develop an ontology-driven OntologySummit2013 "website" on
OntologPSMW (MarcelaVegetti, KenBaclawski, AliHashemi, PeterYim et
-- ON - could be (a) website diagnostics or (b) website applications,
if website is already up by the time of the hackathon

* develop tools (queries; psmw templates) to slice-and-dice the
collected Ontology-Software-Capabilities inventory data in the survey
(KenBaclawski, MichaelDenny, et al.)
-- ON (has to be after survey data is collected)

* implementing the "General Ontology Evaluation Framework (GEOF)" as
SADI compliant web services (JamesMichaelis & JoanneLuciano)
-- ON - will turn in proposal, but looking for contributing developers

* developing an app that will deliver Ontology Summit content to
mobile devices (YuriyMilov)
-- this one is OFF; had suggested another idea, but did not get much response
-- will submit a new proposal before the deadline, one related to
integrating two online resources:
http://attempto.ifi.uzh.ch/webapps/acewikisandbox/ and my test with
Pellet reasoner on the Google App Engine

* developing "ontology evaluation" enhancements on the .15926 editor
(VictorAgroskin, AnatolyLevenchuk)
-- this one is OFF;
-- will submit an ONTOLOGY CLINIC proposal instead; will need
collaborators with Ontology verification and evaluation tools ... can
also offer collaboration infrastructure in Moscow (F2F) if needed


[8:08] PeterYim: Summary of slide#7* project status ... [*see:

[8:08] PeterYim: ONTOLOGY CLINIC

* (A) evaluate some FIBO ontology module (MikeBennett,
JesualdoTomasFernandezBreis, AstridDuqueRamos, et al.)
-- will submit proposal by deadline, MikeBennett: need to identify
which ontology modules to be used in the exercise
-- OOPS! & OQuaRE will be the tools used for the exercise [ ... need
to have OOPS! folks confirm their participation]

* (A) evaluate some eGov ontologies, like those at: (JeanneHolm et al.)
** http://oegov.org/
** http://www.w3.org/TR/vocab-org/
** http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/details/vocabulary_cgov.html
-- ??? TBA (not sure at this time whether a proposal is forthcoming)

* (B) sending BFO, DOLCE, PSL, SUMO and/or CYC through Ontology
Evaluation tools (like OOPS!, OQuaRE, etc.)
-- ON ... OQuaRE is on (so far limited to OWL supported only) [...
need to find out about OOPS! participation in this]

-- ON - proposal already received


[8:27] PeterYim: Summary of slide#9* project status ... [*see:


* develop, evaluate and refine an ontology of "ontology evaluation"
based on what has transpired in Ontology Summit 2013 (MichaelDenny,
KenBaclawski, AmandaVizedom, et al.)
-- as a starter we have some "ontology" developed for the survey and the website
-- AmandaVizedom will make an attempt to articulate what could be done
wrt an "ontology of ontology evaluation" and why/how it would be

* Finance Industry Applications - EDMCouncil (MikeBennett)
-- TBA ... [MikeBennett will follow-up and let us know]

* Earth Science Applications - ESIP (PeterFox/RPI), EarthCube (?), SOCoP (?)
-- TBA ... [JoanneLuciano will follow-up and let us know]
--- [posted after the meeting] this is OFF (JSL/PPY: response received
from PeterFox already)

* Manufacturing / Process Industry Applications (DavidLeal)
-- TBA from DavidLeal
-- VictorAgroskin: our ONTOLOGY CLINIC proposal will be applicable to
this category as well
-- [new] JoelBender will turn in a proposal by the deadline

* Biomedical Applications (?)
-- JoanneLuciano is considering putting in a proposal (from CTG Albany) - TBA

Again, note that the proposal deadline is 2013.03.08 (this Thursday)
... you don't have to the proposal fully completed (gaps are
acceptable - just state what you need to fill them.) Anyone who needs
an extra day or two to turn in the proposal, please writeme
<peter.yim@xxxxxxxx> offline ... although, we much rather have all the
proposals early, that way, we can have more time to tweak and merge
the proposals, team people up, and so on.

Please continue to discuss proposal issue, and exchange thinkings with
your potential collaborators via this [ontology-summit] list (please
prefix your subject line with {hackathon-clinic}). By the time to get
to work on details of the "hackathon," we will defer the discussion of
low-level stuff to the [ontolog-dev] mailing list (let me know too, if
anyone wants to get subscribed to that list too.)

Thanks & regards. =ppy
