Report on the First WSMO SDK meeting, Wiesbaden, Germany,
March 15th 2004
The first WSMO (http://www.wsmo.org)
meeting chaired by Chris Bussler and Dieter Fensel took place
in Wiesbaden on March 15th, 2004 (http://www.wsmo.org/events.html#News).
About 50 members of DIP,
were present at this very successful meeting. After an introduction
a series of presentations were given that introduced the audience
to various deliverables of WSMO and WSMX, including the modeling
ontology, languages, editors, reasoners and implementation.
During and after presentations many discussions took place that
discussed the deliverables in more detail clearly demonstrating
the interest and uptake of the audience. Besides WSMX, Net Dynamics
(Fred platform) as well as the Open University (IRS-II prototype)
announced that they will provide first implementations of WSMO
in the near future.
On the next day a major DIP meeting commenced. DIP decided
to uptake WSMO as the modeling ontology and to use WSMX for
first use case implementations and validations. The various
use case discussions throughout the day and the architecture
discussion at the end of the day related their requirements
to WSMO concepts.
