As we have for the past two years, we are planning on
holding a face-to-face meeting of the ontology community at NIST in the spring
of 2008. We are ironing out some logistic details, but it is looking like a
likely date is late April.
The purpose of this email is to solicit ideas for the topic
we tackle this year, and then undertake an online discussion culminating in the
meeting. One possibility is to arrive at a resolution by the community to
support an online ontology repository somewhere. This topic is going to be
discussed anyway at the January 3rd Ontolog Forum conference call –
you may want to call in. There are numerous other possibilities for the
Ontology Summit – please submit your favorites.
