    (Metadata Registry,                       in MDR for the Semantic Web

Goal and Purposes

 The goal of this proposal is
    to provide the Specification support of ontology using the concepts in
     MDR
 The purposes of this proposal are to promote the
  followings:
    Faciliation usability of MDR under the Semantic Web environment
    Building of ontology schema consisting of standardized concepts
      – i.e., well-known concepts or generalized concepts, which are accepted
         by general users as well as domain experts
    Easy and clear understanding of concepts across corresponding
     same or similar application fields
    More formalized building of ontology
    Ease of definition (building) of ontology
    Enhancement of interoperability between ontologies

Scope

 This Part of ISO/IEC 20943
    covers procedures (method or guidance) for the specification
     (building) of ontology based on ISO/IEC 11179 (2nd Ed.)
       – This part is based on only the second edition of ISO/IEC 11179.
    provides just a method to use concepts in MDR for building ontology
      – e.g., How to utilize MDR to define a Concept for an ontology
    This part does not contain ontology building methods by a specific
      ontology description language, such as RDF, RDF-S, OWL, Topic
      Maps, KIF, and so on

Issues: Scope (cont.)

 Korea suggests that with the following reasons, we'd better first
  develop this part 20943-6: PSO based on MDR (2nd Ed.)
    Now there is an effort to harmonize MDR and MFI.
    MDR-3 (3rd Ed.) and MFI-3 (2nd Ed.) are under development.
    We need to support the existing MDR systems developed based on ISO/IEC
      11179 (2nd Ed.)
                                           Standardized

Issues: Usage of “Specification”


                  Wuhan Meeting                                         Korean Suggestion
   We will use the words build, guidance,    Korea decided to use “build”
   etc. and try to avoid the words           instead of “specify”.
   specification and standard as they relate
   to this document.

Issues: Project Title

 Current Title
    Procedure for the Specification of Web Ontology (PSO)
 Canana Input: SC32/WG2 N1291
    Since the proposal deals with specifying Ontologies based on MDR, we
     suggest this should be reflected in the project title.
    A simple change to the existing titles, removing ‘Web’ and inserting ‘MDR-
     based’ gives:
       – Framework for MDR-based Ontology Specification
       – Procedure for MDR-based Ontology Specification
    However, is it the Ontology or the Specification that is MDR-based?
      Perhaps the following would be better:
       – Framework for MDR-based Specification of Ontology
       – Procedure for MDR-based Specification of Ontology
 Suggestion from the Wuhan Meeting, August 2009
    The group suggests a name such as:
      – Guidance for Building Ontologies based on 11179-3 MDR and 19763-3 MFI

          Issues for Procedure for the Specification of Web Ontology (PSO)        15
Issues: Project Title (cont.)

 Korea Suggestion
    We agreed that the word “Web” is removed from the original title
    20943 family is based on ISO/IEC 11179 MDR.
     : 20943 project title is “ISO/IEC 20943, Information Technology --
       Procedures for Achieving Metadata Registry Content Consistency”
    Therefore, we don't need to name using such a modifier “MDR-based” or
     “Based on 11179-3 and 19763-3 MFI“
       – We need to follow the naming rule of 20943 family for providing conisistency


 Titles Suggested:
    Framework for Building of Ontology (-gies)
    Procedure for Buidling of Ontology (-gies)
    Guidance for Building of Ontology (-gies)

Future Plan

 After this meeting, 1st Working Draft will be submitted
    1st Working Draft will reflect the decisions and comments from this meeting


 Submission Deadline?
    After this meeting ~ December 2009
