Decision Meeting #7 Goal & Agenda


The dial-in information for this week's meeting is here. The Decision Incubator Activity is intended to explore the use cases and design of a Decision Representation format (e.g. in XML, RDF, OWL…) available on the wiki along with its use by participants in testbed settings for experiments and exercises. Each meeting will be an opportunity to summarize progress & contributions to the wiki, review next steps and action items, and to review the current representation format.

Summary and Action Items from the Last Meeting

At the last meeting (see minutes), Don provided an update on his work developing a situation reporting standard with OASIS. This work can be leveraged as we consider the related Situational Awareness use case for decision-making. Jeff summarized progress on the Information Flow Use case, where he was able to successfully utilize the transition pattern and do the SPARQL unit test, see Don then described the new lab that Mitre is establishing and the opportunity to utilize their planned experiment/exercise in August to explore our decision ontology work. The modeling work continues with Don on Sitational Awareness use case, Eva on Open Linked Data and Jeff on Information Flow.

The core Action Items were to begin modeling on our chosen use cases and report on sample patterns intended to be reused at the next meeting. Eva was going to report on how best to discover and use vocabularies with the open linked data

Goal for this Meeting

At this seventh meeting of the Decision Incubator, the goal is to report progress on modeling efforts on our chosen use cases, including any recommended patterns. Any experiences, issues or lessons learned will be important to note. Jeff has some initial explorations on metrics to report.


The following agenda items will be discussed at the next meeting. The topic, time, summary and discussion leader are provided for each agenda item.

(1) Review of Status, Goals & Agenda Overview (5 min, Jeff)

Initial modeling has begun with the transition pattern and practical experience is being gained on use of Neon with the eXtreme Design plugin and the ontology design patterns. The near-term goal is to build on this experience to model additional decision components.

(2) Review Progress on Chosen Use Cases & Core Components (10 min each, Jeff, Don, Eva)

We'll take a quick look at the progress and status of our modeling efforts for the selected use cases and discuss any issues, challenges or opportunities. Any recommended patterns will be noted and discussed.

(3) Initial Exploration of Metrics with Open Linked Data (10 minutes, Jeff)

Jeff considered the relationship between decision metrics and open linked data sets and SPARQL. His initial explorations are reported here
