Background

The first Relation Ontology meeting, organized by Mike Bada, Larry Hunter, Chris Mungall and Barry Smith, was held in Denver in 2008. Through a series of preparatory phone calls and then the two day meeting in October, we propose to make progress on these issues. Your participation, including in defining the goals and tasks of the group, would be welcome.

This ten-year anniversary meeting is designed to draw on the lessons learned in the intervening years in order to review progress on the current RO and suggest a plan for the future. The meeting, organized by Larry Hunter and Barry Smith, is part of the series of meetings organized by the Protein Ontology Consortium. Groundwork for the meeting will be laid in a series of pre-meetings, both online and in the form of teleconferences. Those wishing to participate in these pre-meetings and/or in the face-to-face meeting in Denver should contact Barry Smith.

Goals

The goals of this meeting are:

  • 1. To review the current treatment of relations in the OBO Foundry and to establish a strategy to establish the Relation Ontology on a firmer footing, with a core, consisting of the relations used in a wide range of ontologies, and a well-curated collection of modules extending the core, wherever possible using standard ontology engineering techniques so that more complex relations are defined in terms of more primitive relations in the RO Core.
  • 2. Harmonizing the many alternative sets of relations used by various OBO ontologies.
  • 3. Providing a set of paradigm RO use cases, for example:
providing a set of relations sufficient for expressing the relations among OBO terms denoted by statements in biomedical journal articles.
providing a set of relations sufficient for capturing the relations between PRO terms and terms in other OBO ontologies.

Pre-Meetings

Teleconferences will be scheduled in conjunction with the OBO-Coordinators calls at noon to 1pm Eastern on the following dates:

July 17
