Overall, the aim is to have various revisions done before the end of January. PROV-O plans to be discussed in greater detail at the forthcoming telecon. PROV-O editors were encouraged to aim having all PROV-DM constructs represented. PROV-AQ editors will discuss with Tim Lebo the handling of provenance "pingback" mechanism and whether that gets included in the next working draft. 16:05:26 <pgroth> prov-aq 16:05:33 <pgroth> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-prov-wg/2011Dec/0232.html 16:06:05 <Zakim> + +44.238.059.aacc 16:08:31 <pgroth> +q 16:08:36 <pgroth> ack pgroth 16:08:38 <pgroth> q? 16:08:50 <Paolo> target for resolving issues on prov-aq: one week prior to F2F2 16:09:12 <tlebo> q+ #16:09:17 <Zakim> +pchampin 16:09:21 <pgroth> ack tlebo 16:09:52 <Paolo> Tlebo: issue of advertising where to find provenance 16:10:12 <Paolo> Pgroth: to be addressed after 2nd WD 16:10:43 <Paolo> Tlebo: why so elaborate? one paragraph should suffice 16:11:01 <satya> satya has joined #prov 16:11:22 <Paolo> Pgroth: GK thought it may be too much for this version of the draft. 16:11:27 <pgroth> +q 16:11:29 <pgroth> ack pgroth 16:11:37 <Paolo> Tlebo: GK and I have scheduled a discussion for Jan. 16:12:07 <Paolo> Pgroth: anyone from PROV- primer?

"objects" captures what is common to entities, activities, agents 16:27:17 <Paolo> jcheney: events are instantaneous but they can have attributes as well, so they are objects as well 16:28:19 <Paolo> jcheney: (presentation on semantics) 16:28:44 <Paolo> jcheney: not clear whether time interpretation is needed. GK suggested to avoid time, which may be possible and simpler 16:29:34 <Paolo> jcheney:: some things may hold "at any time" (see complementOf) 16:30:00 <Paolo> others depend on time if the mapping ids- >object is independent of time, then fewer things will depend on time in the model 16:30:02 <pgroth> q? 16:30:13 <Luc> q+ 16:30:28 <pgroth> ack Luc 16:30:38 <Paolo> del/others depend on time 16:31:19 <Paolo> Luc: this helps understanding the DM. what's the best way to discuss about specific points? 16:32:23 <Paolo> jcheney: email the list. use actual issues for specific things 16:32:35 <pgroth> q? 16:32:37 <satya> q+ 16:32:42 <Paolo> jcheney: e.g. the recent complementOf discussion was appropriately on the list 16:32:43 <pgroth> ack satya 16:33:47 <Paolo> satya: time invariant/time dependent interpretations -- -DM is based mostly on events. are events going to replace time in -SEM? 16:34:09 <pgroth> Zakim, who's noisy? 16:34:24 <Zakim> pgroth, listening for 11 seconds I heard sound from the following: ??P5 (4%), +44.238.059.aacc (60%) 16:34:43 <pgroth> P5 can you mute? 16:34:46 <zednik> zednik has joined #prov 16:34:50 <Paolo> jcheney: time instants are arbitrary partial order. total order not needed. this maybe close to the notion of events in -DM 16:35:49 <Zakim> + +1.518.633.aadd 16:35:57 <Paolo> jcheney: ex: use, generation, activity start and end are events in -DM -- so events are associated with the specific relations and properties used in -DM 16:37:11 <satya> @James- yes, that is something I would like to be considered and discussed 16:37:15 <pgroth> q? 16:37:21 <Paolo> jcheney: there is an assumption that events are instantaneous, however they may span a temporal interval. This would make them similar to activities, possibly those that cannot be decomposed. but this is premature 16:38:21 <Paolo> jcheney: need feedback before moving on to additional sections 16:39:14 <Paolo> jcheney: complementarity is what it was prior to the latest discussion. It may not necessarily match the draft. 16:39:39 <Paolo> jcheney: also added sections on the viewOf/foobar relations and tried to give them a formal meaning 16:40:21 <Paolo> jcheney: viewOf anti-symmetric, lifetime containment, and relationship amongst the sets of attributes of the two entities 16:40:53 <pgroth> type it 16:40:59 <Paolo> jcheney: foobar (now changed to alternateOf) 16:41:16 <Paolo> jcheney: also being updated 16:43:30 <Paolo> jcheney: mismatch between a property like "two entity IDs describe the same entity" vs "two entity IDs are associated with two entity records about the same real world thing, but which give different characterizationss" 16:43:56 <Paolo> jcheney: need further discussion over email 16:44:02 <pgroth> q? #16:44:21 <Zakim> -pchampin 16:44:43 <Luc> q+ 16:44:49 <pgroth> q- 16:44:54 <pgroth> ack Luc 16:45:03 <Paolo> jcheney: new recent changes in -DM regarding IDs of entity vs entity records should now be taken into account 16:46:04 <Paolo> Luc: in -DM we have 3 levels: things in the world, entities, and entity records. Their distinction is important. In the -SEM doc the same distinction ought to be made. #16:46:45 <Zakim> +pchampin 16:46:55 <Paolo> jcheney: yes that pushes -SEM in the direction of having 3 levels rather than 2 (as it is now in -SEM) 16:47:32 <pgroth> q? 16:48:29 <Paolo> pgroth: discuss identifiers or accounts? 16:48:40 <pgroth> Topic: PROV-DM Identifiers <pgroth> summary: editors of PROV-DM presented their recent changes that clarify the role of identifiers and how they relate to accounts. PROV-O team members were asked to see if this approach maps naturally to RDF named graphs and if so how. Tim Lebo said he would look at how the account examples map. #16:48:40 <Zakim> -pchampin 16:49:20 <Paolo> Luc: in -DM entities have identifiers, entity records include the ID of the entity, but we do not identify the entity record /itself/ using that same identifiers #16:49:55 <Zakim> +pchampin 16:50:26 <pgroth> q? 16:50:49 <pgroth> q+ 16:52:28 <Paolo> pgroth: id of an entity record -> account + entity Id. what's the implication from an access point of view? there is no URL direclty for the entity record 16:52:59 <Paolo> Luc: there should be no impact on the PAQ 16:53:43 <Paolo> entity records must be searched possibly across multiple accounts. this has always been the understanding of how access works 16:54:11 <Paolo> pgroth: now we only indirectly reference an entity record 16:54:14 <pgroth> q? 16:54:18 <pgroth> ack pgroth 16:54:41 <tlebo> pgroth, an "entity record" is a chunk of an RDF abstract graph. An entity is mentioned and described in that graph. 16:54:45 <Paolo> Luc: there was never a direct way to refer to entity records. it was always in the context of a given account 16:54:48 <pgroth> q? 16:55:17 <tlebo> +1 to avoid naming entity records. 16:55:28 <pgroth> q? 16:55:32 <Paolo> Luc: we have never been keen on minting new IDs for every entity record created.
