Minutes of Meetings

1. Short introduction of participants
Presentation of participants were given – name, company and relation to ISO 15926 for all.

2. Available information sources

  1. Existing OWL DL versions available from PCA web - https://www.posccaesar.org/wiki/ISO15926inOWL
  2. The simplified representation in ISO 15926-8 https://www.posccaesar.org/browser/PCAmembersArea/standards/15926/008%20TS%20publication
  3. OWL 2 version for EPIM’s ReportingHub (not available yet, but will be made available)

Other existing sources of information where not suggested during the meeting, but can be considered later if others need to be added. The way of working will influence the relevance of information sources.

3. High level requirements and design choices
See project description for more details: https://www.posccaesar.org/svn/pub/ISO15926asOWL/20110923_ISO15926_OWL2_Native_V2.pdf

Other requirements and design choices can be added later, but this is the starting point. Additional sources were not suggested during the meeting.

4. Discussion
Several topics were up for discussion and some clarifications were made. Topics discussed can be covered in more detail in future meetings;

  • How to deal with informal objectives (e.g. that it should look simple and easy to work with) in addition to the formal ones? Can they be combined? We need to be able to describe complex relations, which does not conflict with existing part 7-9
  • ISO15926-2 and description logics are highlighted as necessary for tool support and need to be a baseline for the work.
  • Should alignment/mapping to other upper ontologies be part of the project? DOLCE was mentioned as one basic formal ontology, and is an upper ontology that is acknowledged in the RDF community and could therefore be used as an ontological basis. Are there others that should be considered too?
  • Scope needs to be clarified – what is in and what is not to be included?
  • Focus on representations of Part 2, and content according to Part 2. native real semantics so that it fits at the OWL level
  • Part 8 covers the separation of taxonomy and dictionary
