The DMA2ICal Agent provides a translation service between the DAML Meeting Agenda Ontology and the Hybrid RDF Calendar Ontology (or ICal Ontology). Both ontologies can be used to mark up Meeting Agendas and Schedules on the Semantic Web. Agents such as the Retsina Calendar Agent (developed as part of the CMU DAML effort), which reasons about schedules marked up using the ICal Ontology, can utilize translation services such as the DMA2ICal Agent to access and "understand" schedules marked up using other ontologies.
The DAML Meeting Agenda Ontology was particularly designed to accommodate shuffling and resizing of talks during meeting planning (by specifying durations rather than actual times), and to provide an archival record of the meeting (by providing links to speakers and briefings). The following examples are taken from past DARPA DAML meetings, and include the html markup (generated by Mike Dean'sGenHTML WWW Form Interface).
|DAML Meeting Agenda Markup||ICal Markup||HTML|
|DAML Nashua PI Meeting, 2001||Using DAML2ICal||Using genhtml|
|Semantic Web for Military Users 2, 2001||Using DAML2ICal||Using genhtml|
|DAML Tampa PI Meeting, 2002||Using DAML2ICal||Using genhtml|
You can use this form to translate an agenda marked up with the DAML Meeting Agenda Ontology into an agenda marked up using the ICal Ontology. You can the post the result to your project/meeting web site, or use the CGI interface dynamically.
