    Meeting objectives
    The meeting will present recent work in respect of the following:

    Use Cases, Architecture, Requirements, and a Conceptual Model for a Brokering Framework
    Recommendations for a framework implementation: syntactic and schematic transformations
    Recommendations for a framework implementation: semantic transformations. This work is based in large part on the work being done by the SEMAF project in Europe, and neeeds to be shared/ validated by a larger community.

    We also need to attend to adminsitrative tasks – specifically confirming co-chairs for the working group during its last phase of work.
    During the meeting, participants will be asked to comment and rank recommendations via a formal process, and they will be able to add general comments during a discussion session at the end of the process.
    The comments and fornal feedback will be used to inform the final set of recommendations in time for Plenary 18.
