Meeting Preparation

Around the room

 * Add a section for yourself 2 hours before meeting.  * Mark any discussion point that you would like to raise during meeting (with DURING MEETING).  * Otherwise, assume that others will read the rest before meeting.   * Also, please be considerate and read others' discussion points before the meeting starts.



  • Developing aggregation identity algebra based on http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1458484.1458500
  • PML 3 on hold until healthdata is done (tuesday)
  • NCI folks possibly interested in participating in a PML-bio extension to PROV.
  • Downloaded Pubmed mysql dump to poke at with d2rq (RETURN TO)


  • Helping with FUSEnet deployment.
  • Visualization services.



  • lack of human resources is a major issue for PML3 and supporting infrastructure and tools: update regarding meeting with Deborah at DataOne
    • joint RPI/PNNL opportunities with global change (need to follow on that with Curt, Peter and Deb) : revisit deadline for PML 3?
    • joint RPI/PNNL opportunities with DOE (need to follow on that with Lucy and Deb)
    • limited support from NASA (e.g., some of Nick's time)
  • VisKo use of PML3 -- best venue to demonstrate the use of PML3 (Nick will need to have a clear way of learning how current PML2 is translated into PML3)
    • deployed at UTEP, PNNL
    • being deployed at SCI/Utah and ORNL
  • Requirements for PML3
    • Need at least one comprehensive application to validate the PML3 proposal before we release the PML3 document/specification 
    • Again, these kinds of large requirements make the timeline infeasible. The resources vs. objectives aren't realistic.
    • Paulo sounds like the PML 3 customer, not collaborator. Is this true?
  • some open questions:


regrets, meeting with students for Deborah's class.


  • Fuse is dominating development considerations
  • This coming week I will be at datanet/interop and big data
