Thursday Afternoon (1:30-6pm)

  • Info model & service interface integration discussion (Ellen Stokes and Tom Maguire, 1.5 H)
    • Motivating example
    • The subject is really about the linkage between the services we define in OGSA (of course as guided by the reference model) and the information model that is exposed through those services. In general this has been addressed in the way that SNIA and DMTF build Profiles. Terminology is a bit overloaded here... the way we (OGSA) use profiles is in the WS-I sense. Profiles in the SNIA and DMTF are about refining information models to instance based models (cardinality restrictions on relationships, required and optional properties, etc) and the tie of those instances to tasks (service interfaces). We should consider how we are going to accomplish the same thing in OGSA.
  • EMS architecture scenarios (Andreas Savva, 1 H)
    • final document review
  • EMS roadmap discussion (Andreas Savva, 1 H)

Group Dinner


Bahama Breeze

  • it's next door to the Holiday Inn Express - within walking distance from the Doubletree. It has good food and outstanding drinks, plus some good live entertainment on the deck. I'm sure you will find it a fun place to relax after a hard day of "thinking" (Fred Brisard).
  • I can definitely recommend the Bahama Breeze - have had dinner there yesterday evening! (Michel Drescher)
