  • Planning for the summer meeting
    • Theme: Information and Data Quality
      • SJK: go over TC211 products to set the terminology for discussion, perhaps in tech workshop. Also, have joint workshop with Info Quality (IQ) cluster.
        • Q: Can we legally extract definitions from ISO documentation?
        • A: SJK will look into that
      • Sacrifice some tutorial coverage for intro workshop to quality terminology? No consensus reached yet, given possible scope for tutorial.
      • SJK: several efforts going on in community around quality and related terms:
      • Rob: also look at different dimensions of quality, like geolocation accuracy, instrument accuracy, etc.
      • SJK: would be good to work out Use Cases for information quality
    • Tutorial
      • James: more hands-on. It would be neat if you could put it all on a VM and work away with something that works, or have all the tools on a web site.
      • Judy: suggest renting a Virtual Private Server (VPS), get tools loaded up, build servers (have systems folks load them up). Should be inexpensive (1 month of basic VPS for $20)
      • James: VPS probably easier than VM approach
      • Rob: might have money to support this
      • Judy: would volunteer to help out with VPS solution
      • Q: what is our use case? Projects ontology or something else?
      • Q: what about an application? (no clear answer yet...)
      • R Downs - need some use case to allow them to create, link to other ontology, select from terms meeting criteria; exercise canned , but with a little flexibility.
      • Judy - lots of RDF datasets out on the web; have those ready to load or query against would be easy; also faceted tools.
      • Hook - with more planning could reach an application; may need to compress some steps
      • Judy - survey members to find out where they are in their semantic development?
      • Hook - each one has their own specific application. We could continue Projects example; could work through to the end.
      • Hook: Let's solicit alternatives and run a doodle poll
    • Ontology Working Sessions
      • Brian - too early for casting ontology
      • Q: Are any use cases still using Data and Services ontology?
  • Testbed
    • Kai - added two ontologies for ESIP winter meeting; nothing since
    • Rezgui - can still take reqts request
    • Hook leverage wiki to document testbed back end and discuss reqts requests
    • Possible reqts requests
      • Load in your own ontology
      • Turtle import mechanism
      • Make a VMware engine
    • Rob: need to see if GMU can go ahead and do it
    • Hook: could current testbed be the image to be distributed?
      • GMU will look into that.
    • Hook: should document testbed implementation on the wiki, along with requirements requests.
      • Kai will set up a placeholder page

Resgi - OpenRDF to Jena??? (ask Peter?)

  • Collaborative framework feedback
    • Erin: most people have heard the call; need any remaining feedback by end of Feb.
