OpenOntologyRepository: "OOR Strategy, Tactics and Action Planning" Discussion Session - Tue 2012_12_04    (3IUO)

This is a regular monthly OOR Team meeting. Besides covering the nominal team status review and planning, we will continue the "OOR Strategy, tactics and action planning" discussion, and pick up from where we left off at OOR/ConferenceCall_2012_12_04, but in particular, we might focus our discussion today on what we can do at the upcoming OntologySummit2013    (3IUP)

	[07:36] MichaelGruninger: strawman for OntologySummit2013 tracks    (3JI5)
	1. Dimensions of Ontology Evaluation
	- addresses notions of verification, validation, quality, ranking, ...    (3JI6)
	2. Evaluation and the Ontology Application Framework
	- looks at the problem of ontology evaluation from the perspective of
	the applications that use the ontologies. This Framework was one of the
	outcomes of Ontology Summit 2011.    (3JI7)
	3. Best Practices in Ontological Analysis
	- focuses on the ontology evaluation based on the ontology itself, such
	as logical criteria (consistency, completeness, modularity) and
	ontological analysis techniques (e.g. OntoClean).    (3JI8)
	4. Requirements for Ontologies
	- how do we specify the requirements against which we evaluate
	ontologies?    (3JI9)
	5. Lessons from Software Engineering
	- what are best practices for evaluation that we can adapt,
	particularly with distributed open-source software development?    (3JIA)
	[07:37] ToddSchneider: How does an ontology lifecycle differ from a system or engineering lifecycle?    (3JIB)
	[07:41] PeterYim: let's ask: what does OOR has to offer, and what can OOR gain from this upcoming Summit?    (3JIC)
	[07:44] MichaelGruninger: OOR can give a presentation during one of the sessions on Best Practices    (3JID)
	[07:47] MichaelGruninger: OOR spin -- if you want to find good ontologies, look in an OOR instance, because 
        OOR enforces best practices through the implementation of ontology evaluation techniques    (3JIE)
	[07:49] MichaelGruninger: Can OOR become the github and SourceForge for the ontology community?    (3JIF)
	[07:52] MikeDean: There was a series of EON workshops on Ontology (and tool) evaluation, 
        e.g. It might be worth reviewing their results and perhaps encouraging 
        some of participants (mostly in Europe) to participate in the summit.    (3JIG)
	[08:01] MichaelGruninger: Contact MariCarmenSuarezFigueroa and possibly YorkSure as Track Champions    (3JIH)

	[08:11] KenBaclawski: The sodata community wiki is at    (3JIK)
	[08:27] MichaelGruninger: OOR-related hands-on event at the Symposium    (3JIL)
	[08:28] ToddSchneider: Ken, how fast can you code?    (3JIM)
	[08:39] PeterYim: an audacious idea: extreme programming of "evaluation" features onto OOR 
        (ontohub? colore? bioportal? oor-sandbox?) culminating into a integrated demo at the symposium?    (3JIN)
	[08:44] PeterYim: (as most of us would otherwise be "double-booked") we might consider not doing 
        standalone OOR meetings, but merging the OOR discourse into OntologySummit2013-related discussions/sessions, 
        while the Summit is in session. We'll try to figure this out a bit more as the Summit program becomes clearer.    (3JIO)
