=== Monday, May 19th 2008 ===
+
* Our over-arching guiding principle is to keep the Relations Ontology biology driven. This means that any relations proposed must be kept:
 +
** simple, with well-thought out definitions
 +
** example-driven, that is an instance-level definition must exist (see RO paper)
 +
** expressed in a clear, consistent symbol-free syntax

+
* The goals of this workshop are to develop the content of the relationship ontology. By the end of the meeting we hope to complete all of the following:
 +
** All outstanding items on the request tracking system are solved
 +
** All relations in ro_proposed are "blessed" and move into RO proper
 +
** A release of the cross-product (xp) files is generated
 +
** We will produce a new release of the RO

* The leader of each session topic should be prepared to provide a summary of the issues involved and the available choices to be decided upon
 +
* Leaders should recommend papers to read in preparation and send out PDFs for CS folks and biologistsd
 +
* Nomi Harris and Chris Mungall are working to ensure that OBO-Edit2 will be fit to use during the workshop so that we can use it to immediately modify the RO
