  • Authorised an interim executive committee
  • Determined a tentative schedule of meetings for 2012
  • Moved forward with the definition of the modeling framework
  • Formalized two task forces to begin the modeling work so that example models can be presented at the next meeting
  • Recognized the formation of a Glossary Group (lead to be announced)
  • Agreed to plans for utilizing existing tools to rapidly develop and test a candidate reference model and to create a small group of example CIMI models that build on the reference model work
