    2. Possible ontology sessions
  4. Documentation
  5. Enabling multiple identities with vCards? (Christian)


Conference schedule (Mike)

  • Ideas for unconference sessions:

  • Ontology task force members are uncomfortable with the schedule for unconferences. All-unconference slots would be prefered to not compete with prepared sessions. General concern with the conference schedule.  Competing with prepared sessions is a problem.  Ontologists will write emails to conference planners.  Try to find times to meet that are not in competitition with prepared sessions.

  • Ideas: Day 2 before the poster reception (Ralph)

  • Meet during lunch (Tatiana)

  • Day 1 in between the workshops (Christian)

  • Shortening the lunch breaks (Ralph)

  • Idea: Asking for complete re-scheduling. Compress the prepared-material-sessions to a three track conference. (Mike)

Sprint 1 (Javed)


  • VIVO.owl task was completed and merged

  • Checking vCard ontology finished and reviewed.

  • Identify candidate ontology modules for possible removal.

  • Reworking the firsttime approach should be discussed by the developer call. It’s maybe no longer necessary as a caching solution

  • Mike used Wilma because it’s the default theme

  • Ralph: tenderfoot should not be used. Everything should be tested with Wilma.

Enabling multiple identities with vCards (Christian)

  • 2 different objectives:

    • reproducing the authorships as a text string “as published” in the original publication

    • enabling people to have multiple identities

    • Mike: Data preserving idea

    • Ralph: Why not keeping multiple identities (list of a.k.a.)

    • Mike: We had also know as in the early VIVO days

    • There is a data property namePublishedAs that can be associated with the authorship

    • Behaviour of the system should be improved. A.k.a. should be integrated in the researchers profile

    • Mike: Getting names right is important to the people who have names. And that’s all of us.
