    2727At this meeting, a general desire is being expressed to achieve some level of interoperability, at least, between [http://www.open-bio.org/wiki/Main_Page OpenBio*] initiatives generally, and more specifically, between [http://www.open-bio.org/wiki/Main_Page OpenBio*] and web services protocols like [http://biomoby.org BioMoby] and [http://www.embracegrid.info/page.php?page=home EMBRACE].

    29 An addition targeted need is simply to harmonize specific ontology pertinent to key interoperability technology. A specific example of such a need (from M. Wilkinson) is the harmonization of [http://www.biomoby.org BioMoby] and [http://www.mygrid.ac.uk myGrid] service ontology.

    3131It is generally agreed that semantics is a hard community problem ("herding the cats") but can be made tractable by "divide and conquer" (witness the relative success of GO and other similar ontology development communities).  Efforts should and generally are, driven by a specific set of practical tasks in the community, on an "as needed" basis. The expectation to create a consensual "mother-of-all-biological-data-models" is most likely unrealistic, but can some agreement on the general principles, process and tools of semantic collaboration be achieved?
