ScribeNick: Payam
20:12:42 [Payam]
Holger, we will wait til we have something represantable for the ontology
20:12:51 [Holger]
20:14:57 [Payam]
on page 4, you have a figure, is that the core ontology?
20:18:52 [Payam]
Michael explaining the core ontology from the paper (page 4)
20:20:17 [Payam]
Amit, we can add other ontologies to the core; e.g OWL-time, geo-location
20:20:56 [Payam]
Amit, main dometions are spatial, temporal, and theme
20:22:47 [JohnGraybeal]
I'm confused -- If we get sufficiently atomic, we don't have to model anything -- everything that describes a sensor can be found in some other ontology. ?
20:23:50 [Payam]
Amit, discussing need for an upper ontology and mapping to other concepts
20:24:22 [krp]
No that's right!
20:24:41 [asheth2]
Key issue is how to use an uppoer ontology and specific ontologies that bring in sensor, time, locaction and thematic dimensions-- the framework for this
20:25:45 [Payam]
John, there are multiple ontolgies which are contradictory; depending which ontology we choose, relations between cpncepts will be different
20:25:53 [michael]
20:26:24 [Holger]
ack michael
20:28:09 [Payam]
Michael, the are Unit of measurments, location, etc. ontologies ... which are core aspects which need to there

20:32:43 [krp]
Sounds right for the EU
20:33:45 [Holger]
20:34:13 [Payam]
Holger: Timeslot(s) for telephone conferences
20:45:51 [Payam]
discussion on the timeslot to continue on the mailing list
20:49:24 [Payam]
before discussing extenstion packages on the ontologies; we need to discuss the current status of the ontology
20:51:37 [Payam]
John, whether this core satisfies the use case, and everybody should comment on this - it is on the wiki
20:52:40 [Payam]
Holger: one solution is having a dedicated phone call to discuss this, another solution discussing it in f2f meeting
