Dear Paola,

With respect to the current agenda, I would be happy to give some
updates of the XG during the meeting (item 3), but you cannot expect to
have any useful content in 5 minutes :-( I could only do advertisement
in 5 minutes :-)
If it is relevant, I would need at least 10 minutes to explain what kind
of interoperability problems we try to address and the usefullness of a
common multimedia ontology framework. I understand that item 5 is the
most important one in the agenda. See below.

You probably know that K-Space is developping a general multimedia
ontology, based on MPEG-7, but following a real re-engineering and
formalization process. The result is a nice modular top level ontology,
easily extendable. I would suggest that Richard Arndt from Koblenz
University (the main architect of this ontology) and me present it
during this time slot.

For preparing the following discussion, it would be interesting to
constitute small groups of people (based on the contributors for the
requirements document) that volunteer to take back the requirements they
have expressed, and decide to work on this ontology (or another one) and
see if it now allows to fullfill their requirements, and if not, express
what is missing and what should be added, changed, etc. We could simply
start from the requirement lists nicely summarized in

and examine them one per one by small task force groups.

Best regards.
