Subject: OOR-IPR mini-series, and other Ontolog virtual events in Sep-2010
To: "[ontolog-invitation]" <ontolog-invitation at ontolog.cim3.net>


September 2010 will be an exciting month at Ontolog as we will be
rolling our three (3) mini-series sessions to specifically address IPR
(Intellectual Property Rights) issues relating to the "open ontology
repository (OOR)" initiative (which will, invariably, touch upon IPR
issues pertaining to ontology in general as well.)

There will also be two OOR specific sessions, one relating to "Common
Logic (CL) support for OOR" and the other, entitled "OOR-Development -
Take-4."

You are cordially invited to join us at these Ontolog events!

*****************************************************


The "OOR-IPR mini-series" will, hopefully, start a dialog among the
global ontology community, to specifically address IPR issues relating
to the "open ontology repository (OOR)" initiative. The discussion
will, invariably, touch upon IPR issues pertaining to ontology in
general as well. This mini-series is jointly organized by the
OOR-team, the Ontolog-community, NCBO (US National Center for
Biomedical Ontology), CC (Creative Commons), IAOA (the International
Association for Ontology and its Applications) and OASIS (Organization
for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards).

Given the complexity of the issues involved, one can look as this
mini-series to merely be the beginning of a quest, by the
collaborating parties and their communities, to fully understand the
issues, and to get themselves into a position to address them. As a
community, I trust we will, over the course of this mini-series and
subsequent actions and events, address a very important set of issues,
that really have to be cleared, before one can stand up effective open
ontology repositories, and the world can get the most out of the
potentials in science & technology of ontology and semantics. ...
Please also refer to details on the OOR-IPR mini-series at the
program's homepage
at: http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OpenOntologyRepository_IPR

These sessions will be delivered as augmented conference calls
(webinars). Like all Ontolog virtual events, they are open and free of
charge. Anyone who is interested, or (better still) who may have
something to contribute, is welcome. Please refer to event details on
the session page, to which the hyperlink is given above, where you
will find the session agenda, conference call dial-in, slides and
other pertinent information. Feel free to pass this invitation along
to colleagues who may also find these sessions to be of interest.

*RSVP* by emailing Peter Yim at <peter.yim at cim3.com> offline with your
name, affiliation and session you are attending (or add yourself
directly to the session page if you are already an Ontolog or OOR
community member) so that we can prepare enough resources to support
everyone. [Please state clearly the date of the session you are
registering for in your rsvp message.]

These sessions will be recorded and made available in a publicly
accessible archive. Therefore, before participating, please make sure
you are cognizant of our IPR policy (ref:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?WikiHomePage#nid32).
