Dr. Steve Ray from NIST will be will be delivering a presentation 
entitled "NIST's Semantic Approach to Standards and Interoperability" 
during our Thu 2004-02-12 conference call.    (01)

He will be talking about the application of formalized ontologies in 
the development of data standards.  Ultimately, by using this 
approach, official normative standards would be defined formally, such 
as with first-order logic, with natural language descriptions handled 
as informative annexes.    (02)
