Dear WG!

Four weeks ago I received ACTION-93:

  "Will initiate work on the OWL 1.1 Full semantics, 
  with a draft posted to the wiki 
  a week prior to the next F2F meeting"

Since then, I have build up a Wiki, which will serve the Full-TF (which
AFAIK does not yet officially exist :-)) as a development environment for
OWL-Full, and which hopefully makes it easier for the rest of the WG to
monitor the ongoing work. You find the start page of the wiki at


The main part of this wiki is the list of pages, which define semantics for
the different language constructs:


I have grouped the new OWL-1.1 features into 15 categories. There is one
Wiki page dedicated to each category. There are also pages for certain
OWL-1.0 features, although not for all. You are free to have a look at each
of these pages, but only those ones, which I have marked as "ready", are
meant to be ready for review by the WG. (But feedback is welcome for
everything, of course.)

Currently, there are 10 ready categories, and for several other categories
work is in progress. For some other categories, no work has started yet in
the Wiki, but for most of them I have already done some work outside the
Wiki. So there will be visible progress soon, too.

In the last four weeks, I came across several difficulties. I plan to tell
the WG about these issues at the F2F2, where there will be a slot for

So to conclude: I am far from finished, but I think the "initiation process"
has been completed successfully. And this was actually my action. 

The plan for the future: Of course, I will continue to work on this.
Realistically, I believe that it will take me another month to get the whole
proposal of semantics completed. Afterwards, after some reviewing by the WG,
I would start to integrate the content of the Wiki into an editor's note.
