Robert and I have discussed how to organize the TMQL meetings on the
Wednesday and Thursday, and agreed on the following.


N492: <URL: http://www.y12.doe.gov/sgml/sc34/document/0492.htm >

Decide for yourself what you think is important in a topic map query
language, and perhaps also which parts of the different proposals you

===== WEDNESDAY 0900-1730

 1. intro presentation to TMQL process   LMG
 2. TMPath presentation                  Dmitry
 3. tolog presentation                   LMG
 4. Toma presentation                    Rani
 5. AsTMa? presentation                  Robert
 6. Language comparison session          all

Goal for the day:

 - everyone to understand all proposals,
 - common terminology, and
 - hopefully agreement on TMQL evaluation model.

Lunch will be had between two presentations; exact timing not yet

===== THURSDAY 0900-1730

 1. Proposal construction session
      Attendees form 3 groups
      Create TMQL proposals from bits of existing proposals
      Can make up new things there and then, of course


 2. Groups present proposals

 3. Free-for-all discussion of proposals

The goal is to end up with a rough TMQL proposal, either by choosing
the best result from the working groups, or by cobbling together bits
of them. The editors will then be left to create a first TMQL proposal
from all of this.

Feedback welcome, of course.

See you in Amsterdam!
