1. Use Case Q&A, Buttom-up WGs discussions, Updates from Domain (Bottom Up) working groups, if any. Maybe identifying some requirements (8:30 - 9:30am)

2. Report from Top-Down working group (9:30 - 10:30am) Hope to identify technical challenges.

3. Coffee Break (10:30 - 11:00am)

4. Report from the Governance Board (Jim Wilson) (11 - 11:30am)

5. Where are we now? Summarizing where we are now based on the earlier part. Starting of the roadmap discussion. (11:30 - 12:30pm)

12:30 - 1:30pm Lunch, including discussion on Ontologies for industrial data: is there a convincing business case? introduced by Melinda Hodkiewicz (University of Western Australia)

6. Roadmap continued (1:30 - 2:30)

7. Technical Principle (2:30 - 3:30)

Break 3:30-4:00pm

8 Technical principle continued (4:00 - 5:00)

What is the domain dependent ontologies based on the diagram in the charter, should it be within the IOF? If not, how do you govern the usage (maybe this is the licensing issue). There are questions left in the doc. The focus would be to iron out those questions. Some of them are independent from the challenges.

Draft Agenda, Thursday, July 19

0. Arrival and breakfast (8:00am).

1. Challenges discussion (8:30-12:30):

What are the challenges to discuss?

2. Use of existing standards. (Megan)

How to design IOF ontology by leveraging existing standards which may not be ontology?

How to design IOF ontology by leveraging existing ontology?

3. Ontology merging. Will diversity of ontologies in a particular area be allowed? (Barry will give an introduction)

Diversity of ontologies in IOF.

Dealing with diversity outside of IOF.

4. Ontology Merging: How do we resolve conflicts among ontologies within the IOF? Introduced by Dimitris Kiritsis (Lausanne)

5. Should reference ontologies contain axioms that support shared understanding of the concept. If so, how should it be done? E.g., Car has transport function\role. If we want to have that kind of axiom in the reference ontology how it should be done, e.g., Car ‘has intended’ function\role (Chris, Evan, Hyunmin). We will likely need a use case to ground this discussion.

6. Best Practices and and Software Environments for Collaborative Distributed Ontology Development (Chris Will, Stephen Karman)

7. IRI for the IOF.

Lunch (12:30 - 1:30)

8. Challenge discussion continued (1:30-2:30pm)

Break (2:30-3pm)

9. Roadmap (second round) (3 - 5pm)
