Pascal and I decided to go with the following title for our session
'Heterogeneity-preserving Data Interoperability: Methods and
Challenges'. We are still discussing the panelists/presenters but Werner
Kuhn, Giancarlo Guizzardi, Mark Gahegan, and others come to mind. The
problem is not to find good names but the right combination of covered
topics. For instance, we would still like to have somebody present work
on alignment. More updates soon.
