Hello everyone,
I'd like to suggest kinds of vocabularies / use cases that I might be 
able to contribute.

I am working with three different groups who are developing or 
compiling vocabularies/ontologies:

(1) The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) is a 
professional organization representing the radiology imaging 
community who is developing a terminology for the radiology field 
called RadLex with the goal to standardize communication of imaging results.

(2) The Biomedical Informatics Research Network (BIRN) is an 
NIH-funded research network who are developing a terminology called 
BIRNLex for neurobiology with the goal to integrate diverse data in 
their field.

(3) The National Center for Biomedical Ontology is creating a 
repository of biomedical ontologies with the goal of creating a 
publicly-accessible library of ontologies and tools for working with 
them (visualization, indexing/search, alignment, quality assessment, etc).

The first two groups have interest in disseminating their 
terminologies broadly for use in annotation projects and computer 
applications; each of those could be separate use cases since they 
have different needs/goals. NCBO could be an additional interesting 
use case since there could be a use case developed to publish one or 
all of the ontologies it hosts according to standards that would be 
developed in this WG.

Regards,
Daniel
