Meeting 2, 20 DEC 2018.  Attendees: Athanasios, Jakub, Don.

[Shall we number meeting bullets for each meeting?  For example, this meeting is 2.1, 2.2 etc.]

2.1. Athanasios drafted a slideset to help guide our discussions.  This was very fruitful.

Athanasios Malamos has invited you to edit the following presentation:
Semantic X3D
I think its a good idea to have a common whiteboard to sketch our thoughts.
Here I am trying to structure a catalog of requirements and solutions in 3D scene semantics. You may work on this presentation applying your thoughts.

We got a lot of good progress together.  Thanos invites further collaboration.

2.2.  We took a good look at Leslie's most impressive website.

	3D Modeling Ontology

We are hoping that an upcoming meeting might be scheduled when Leslie might present.

Of potential assistance is that Don will be in Seoul time zone for Korea Chapter meeting 21-25 JAN.  Perhaps we could meet Sunday 20 JAN? afternoon (Poland, Crete) and evening (Australia, Korea)?

3. Thanos showed us some amazing work demonstrating visual queries at

	3D R-tree for X3DOM Scenes

Wow!  A lot is here.  Suggestion: perhaps record a demo video and we post it online!

Poznan University will continue to build additional references for their project, and also how the working group shares knowledge.  Web3D has excellent infrastructure which we can use, but it also always good to build on successful approaches.  So, how to best proceed?

Next meeting: we plan to meet together at the same time in 2 weeks, Thursday 3 JAN 2019.  We will continue meeting weekly.


Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday and a happy New Year.  Having fun semantically with X3D!  8)
