  • WED, Dec 4:

-- Logo: David sends around 2 proposals and then the better is chosen via voting
-- Titi presented the paper by Dieter - the result of communication is evolving ontologies?..
-- Ying presented the survey on ontology library systems by Ying and Dieter - Perspectives: management, adaptation, standartization
-- Holger presented the state of the art survey on Semantic Web portals - evaluation scheme: three basic layers of architecture - are boxes, e.g. "user interface", components or activities or features? - they are ways to evaluate a portal! !!Collaboration and collaborative groups!! We should look at this, especially that this has been overlooked and ignored in current portals. - OntoWeb site discussion: after introducing SW technologies, the info became hard to find and the site became difficult to access (i.e. offline) - Real time collaboration and integration of components should be just as everything else, such as metadata structure and ease exchange and reuse in ontologies
-- Organization: we should not wait 15 minutes and watch software fixing to start a meeting - responsible persons take care. - The slides should be distributed before the meeting and printed out for everybody - ontology in Protege exists, a paper about it should be written and distributed - Holger takes care - possible collaboration with Monteca - at Dec 31 we get a paper on existing community portal comparison -- by Stefan and Ina - at Dec 31 commercial portal provider comparison - technologies offered - Han - evaluation of groupware - collect 2-3 papers - Holger, 18 Dec -- Michael presented content analysis - the paper on it is located on BSCW - now ontology in for the portal, not really for the community -- or is it now a crazy mixture... e.g., person is subclass of user - how would you treat this? OntoWeb is said to be a community portal, but it has the same structure. But it is a horrible way of modeling!! Application or domain ontologies? Maybe build two ontologies??
