Subject: RE: 100223_ChrisKreiler_OASIS Quantities and Units of Measure Ontology Standard (QUOMOS) Technical Committee Liaison with ISO/TC 12 Quantities and units
Please accept the OASIS QUOMOS Technical Committee’s regrets for not attending the ISO/TC 12 meeting in Prague. However, I am pleased to report that we have prepared a short Microsoft PowerPoint presentation that is attached for your information and use at the ISO/TC 12 meeting next week.
The presentation is an introduction to QUOMOS and outlines what QUOMOS is attempting to develop, and what it is not trying to do.
We look forward to hearing from you after the Prague meeting. We wish you a very successful ISO/TC 12 plenary.

Dear Mr Kreiler,
Please find attached doc N 850 regarding the request from OASIS for liaison. The decision will be taken at the next plenary meeting which will take place in Prague April 12 and 13, 2010. You are very welcome to attend and to make a presentation of OASIS at the meeting. In the next edition of the agenda OASIS will be added under agenda item 8.3.
With best regards

The Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) Quantities and Units of Measure Ontology Standard (QUOMOS) Technical Committee is seeking a liaison relationship with ISO/TC 12 Quantities and units.
The OASIS QUOMOS Technical Committee is planning to encode existing units and measurements. It is important to note that we do not intend to develop new standards for units and measurement, but merely create ontologies from existing sources. I am attaching a copy of the OASIS QUOMOS Charter for your information. It describes the goals and scope of our committee work.
Additional information may be obtained from the OASIS QUOMOS TC website (http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/quomos/) and the OASIS QUOMOS Wiki (http://wiki.oasis-open.org/quomos). Please note that this effort is just getting underway and the information currently available is limited.
We are looking forward to establishing a working relationship with ISO/TC 12 and await your response.
