Issues for Procedure for the Specification of Web Ontology (PSO)

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

Issues: Scope (cont.)


There are two comments related with the scope of this part



This part first considers the ongoing work on 11179
-
3 (3rd Ed.)


from Canada for the Wuhan meeting, August 2009.



This part considers the ongoing work on 19763
-
3 (2nd Ed.)


from the Wuhan Study Period meeting

Issues for Procedure for the Specification of Web Ontology (PSO)

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.)

Issues for Procedure for the Specification of Web Ontology (PSO)

Wuhan Meeting

Korean Suggestion

We will use the words build, guidance,
etc. and try to avoid the words
specification and standard as they relate
to this document.

Korea decided to use “
build”
instead of

“specify”
.

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

15

Issues for Procedure for the Specification of Web Ontology (PSO)

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)
