Re: [MMSEM] Agenda 1st February Telecon 1700 UTC

Dear all,

As Vassilis mentioned in today's telecon, we are expecting the following 
two from authors of each use case by Feb 7 for our interoperability 
deliverable [1] :

1) summary of semantic interoperability issue in the use case;
2) and the use case itself (from the perspective of interoperability).

We can leave the solutions completed later after we have some draft 
about the common framework. As for the common framework, we know pretty 
much about what to cover for the syntactic interoperability and layers 
of interoperability, but again need inputs from *each* use case ASAP:

3) common ontology/schema;
4) guidelines on which standard to use for specific tasks related to the 
use cases.

Based on 3) and 4), we can start work on integration and harmonisation 
of individual use case common ontology/schema and provide an integrated 
common/schema. Furthermore, we will provide a simple extensibility 
framework, to allow the support of other related ontologies/schema 
related to the use cases we considered, and possibly some other 
annotation standards that are not yet considered in our framework.

In short, inputs are needed and comments and suggestions are warmly 
welcome :-)
