Abstract:    (2VQ1)

As a result of the two OOR Architecture and API panel sessions back in Oct & Nov-2010, we have been exposed to a large number of architecture and API candidates for ontology repositories. We have had requirements for the OOR, at least in broad outline form, since the Ontology Summit 2008. We have been running an OOR sandbox based on BioPortal. Most recently, we have forked from the BioPortal code base with the intention of proceeding separately with the development of a reference implementation.    (2VQ2)

At this series of meetings, we are going through the process of producing the actual OOR specification. It will be run as a workshop where the straw man proposal will be discussed and modified as needed.    (2VQ3)

The various architectures and APIs for ontology repositories presented for consideration are available at OpenOntologyRepository_Architecture    (2VQ4)

Here is the straw man architecture: OpenOntologyRepository_Architecture/Candidate03    (2VQ5)

In addition, there is an API of the core services that was obtained from BioPortal, which is not entirely compatible with the straw man architecture, but furnishes a starting point. This API will also be discussed and modified as needed.    (2VQ6)

Here is the API expressed in WSDL:    (2VQ7)

Here is the API expressed in Java:    (2VQ8)

Finally, we need to agree on a plan for completing the development of the specification.    (2VQ9)

Here is the proposed organizing plan: OpenOntologyRepository_Architecture/GettingOrganized    (2VQA)

We encourage all participants to update your candidate contributions to ensure your ideas are known and understood.    (2VQB)

Agenda & Proceedings    (2VQM)

Since we did not have a quorum, it was decided (by the three who were in attendance) to postpone the workshop. We spend some time updating one another on latest relevant developments in the OOR-related world and then adjourned the meeting.    (2W0I)
