Dear members of the Ontology-Lexica Community Group (resending this 
email with an appropriate Subject),

First of all, the chairs would like to welcome to everybody on this 
list. We have by now 29 members in the group, which is very nice. I 
think it would be nice if everybody could write a brief email 
introducing themselves and mentioning sth. about their background, what 
they are working on and why they are interested in this group. This 
would help everybody to get a feeling for the members of the group.

Further, we have started to produce some preliminary material for the 
group. As you know, there is a wiki (MediaWiki) that we can all use to 
work together.

i) You will find the statement of the mission of the group here: 

ii) You will find a proposal for a schedule that we can use to structure 
our work. This needs to be thoroughly discussed at one of our first 
telcos. The proposal of the chairs and other involved people is to start 
defining use cases from which we can derive requirements on the model 
later. I think this is a very pragmatic way of kicking of the work that 
will help us to stay focused and concrete.

iii) We have already added a few use cases that I think are relevant and 
that the ontology-lexicon model should support: 
comments are of course welcome. If you have comments on the format of 
the use case descriptions, please let me know. I think it is important 
that we have some common format for these use case descriptions and I do 
think that it is important to make these use cases as concrete as 
possible (also with concrete examples) to facilitate discussion.

Our plan is to have a first teleconference to kick-off the work of this 
group. We will arrange this for end of October/early November at the 
very latest.

In the meantime, I would really appreciate if everybody could introduce 

Best regards,
