- Eric Rozell
- Line Pouchard

- Marshall X Ma
- Robert Downs
- Ruth Duerr
- Eric - Determine state of ToolMatch application framework
- Line - Contact Stanford about BioPortal and keep Peter posted
- Peter & Line - follow up on role of BioPortal in ESIP
- Peter - contact a few people before next call to "convince" them to do more research on ontology governance
- Peter - contact Info Quality cluster lead to participate in their telecoms
- Chris, Eric, Peter - sync up on "rules" presentation for winter meeting
SW hackathon session topics
- ToolMatch Talkoot
- Need an application framework
- At this point, Eric hasn't worked on back-end since
- Need to define/partion
- UI for adding triplestore
- Simple query interface (given a dataset, what tools work, etc.)
- Some tools can only be "enumerated", but this should not be an issue
- Get a framework up and running, do a dry run, then virtual Talkoot
- Training session for BioPortal (remote?) from Stanford Group
- Line will reach out to Stanford contacts about this
- (Potentially) Annotations/Quality Control "hack-a-thon" session for Ontology
- This would not require specific expertise in ontology portal?
- But, if the SW cluster prioritizes what we want for Winter Meeting, that can go into the ESIP Products & Services proposal
- i.e., experts sessions
- what advanced topics are people interested?
- Rule sets for tool datasets
- Chris will be able to provide grounding examples
SW hands on
- i.e., cross cluster sessions
- Info Quality
- Preservation & Stewardship
- Energy & Climate
- Dalia (coordinator for Ontolog) is not on this call (no updates)
- Notes missed, discussion of EarthCube and ESIP relationship?
Ontology governance by cluster
- Functions; ticket, comment, tracking update
- What's put into Portal and by whom
- Curation guidance
- With all ontologies, there is some ownership (e.g., JPL for SWEET)
- ESIP has governance responsibility for SWEET
- If SWEET is put in some other repository (not-ESIP) JPL may not recognize comments, if it is the ESIP portal (which will be curated), then the changes will be made.
- What's put into the portal and by whom?
- This is not a "dumping ground" for random ontologies, paying attention to quality, annotations, etc.
- We should get the initial portal to a point it can be released
- Set up a sub-group in SW cluster to discuss guidelines for content of ontologies in Portal
- Ruth is interested in the results of this, would play reviewer role
- Are there any existing guidelines/best practices that we could adopt?
- Mostly interested in: what types of ontologies should go in this? how should hack-a-thon sessions be targeted? etc…
- Namespacing issues still need to be resolved (should an ESIP ontology be in a UAH namespace etc.)
- Not discussed
