1. AO Special Edition Actions

Details are in the working Word document for these.

Several papers now appear to be in the “System” but have not appeared in the Editors Queue

There are about 14 reviews still to do (on 6 papers).

Two papers may or may not have been submitted and are not in the Editor's Queue (resubmissions by Ken and by Till)

Action: MB to email Till about resubmission

Action: MB to email Ken about resubmission x2

One paper submitted today (resubmission, Andrea); we have the number. Not yet in Editors Queue

One paper submitted about 2 months ago (Bennett, Hackathon) and has not surfaced in the Editors queue. Was not a resubmission.

Action: MB to email AO editors about missing (x2) and potentially missing / expected papers (x3).

Todd: Is the Bennett paper on Methodology, one that can be submitted separately to the Journal?

On discussion, it sounds like it does belong in this edition.

Action: MB to send slides on this (as presennnted at Atlanta etc) to Todd.

2. Housekeeping, Blog etc.

Recorded on SoapHub chat log, below

MikeBennett: Housekeeping

MikeBennett: Main page for the SIG on IAOA still points t old stuff.

MikeBennett: Reason: they are still in the process of porting the IAOA site over.

MikeBennett: Do we have a blog page?

MikeBennett: The ones we had for the Summit we pre-created by Ken

MikeBennett: So we are none the wiser in terms of how to originate a blog page

MikeBennett: This and the lack of a link from the IAOA main page are not dependent on each other.

MikeBennett: So how soon can we learn how to originate a blog page for this SIG?

MikeBennett: This is one for Ken.

MikeBennett: Andrea may have originated such a blog page after all.

MikeBennett: This was created juste this minute. IT is at

MikeBennett: http://ontologforum.org/index.php/Blog:SWAO_Blog

MikeBennett: Although some of those are a bit old now.

MikeBennett: AoB?

MikeBennett: None
