********************* Details ************************    (010)

This is our 7th Ontology Summit, a joint initiative by NIST, Ontolog,
NCOR, NCBO, IAOA & NCO_NITRD with the support of our co-sponsors. The
theme adopted for this Ontology Summit is: "Ontology for Big Systems."
In an earlier planning session last month, the community and
subsequently, the summit organizing committee members brainstormed on
the choice of theme and how best to frame the issues. These inputs
were carefully reviewed and synthesized by the Ontology Summit
Organizing Committee and its leadership. It is this plan and program
that we will be discussing with everyone during the launch event.    (011)

The general format of the Ontology Summit comprises of a series of
both virtual and face-to-face activities that span about 3 months
(January through March or April each year). These activities include a
vigorous three-month online discourse on the theme of the Summit,
virtual panel discussions, research activities, and so on, which will
culminate in a two-day face-to-face workshop and symposium at NIST in
Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA in April. Each year, we publish a Summit
Communiqué to offer a message from the Summit participants to the
world-at-large as a signature activity of the Ontology Summit series.    (012)

These sessions, like all Ontolog virtual events, are open and free of
charge. Anyone who is interested, or (better still) who may have
something to contribute, is welcome. Please refer to event details on
the session pages, to which the hyperlink is given above, where you
will find session agenda, conference call dial-in, slides and other
pertinent information. Feel free to pass this invitation along to
colleagues who may also find these sessions to be of interest.    (013)

*RSVP* by emailing Peter Yim at <peter.yim@xxxxxxxx> offline (or add
yourself directly to the session page if you are already an Ontolog or
Ontology Summit community member) so that we can prepare enough
resources to support everyone. [Please state clearly the date of the
session you are registering for in your email.] ... All respondents
will be subscribed (if they aren't already so) to the
[ontology-summit] mailing list so they are participate in the virtual
discourse.    (014)

These sessions will be recorded and made available in a publicly
accessible archive. Therefore, before participating, please make sure
you are cognizant of our IPR policy (ref:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?WikiHomePage#nid32).    (015)
