This external project run through ONTOLOG, a community that has
worked with OASIS since EBXML, may be instrumental in defining what the higher
order abstractions/contracts for oBIX should look like. It is the hope of the
BSP group that this project also becomes the basis for standard definitions of
building services from within NBIMS/BuildingSmart as well.

Kickoff Conference Call
******************** Headlines ********************
Postponement of "The Building Service
Performance" BSP Project Kickoff meeting
There has been great response in support
and suggested collaborations for the BSP
Project, but difficulty with the fast approaching
date of June 16 for a Kickoff meeting
Therefore, expect an announcement of the new
official kickoff date to be sent out early next week.
In the meantime, Monday 16 June 2008,
10:00 am PDT / 1:00 pm EDT will become a
standard BSP project pre-kickoff meeting. As
an emerging Ontolog project, this is an open
meeting. The details and agenda for the meeting
will be modified shortly and posted at
We look forward to inviting you to the kickoff
session and to your participation, now, then or
in the future development of the BSP Project.
