Good idea. I'm sharing this with our community by way of posting this
thread to the [ontolog-forum].
May I also take the opportunity to request ontolog members to help pass
the word along to
other communities they are involved in (NIST, SICoP, OntoWeb, ...) who
addressing the issue of Semantic Harmonization as well. (06)

Sounds good. Appreciate your playing host to this very important dialog.
... As for whether or not there are "other places", the last time we
were at NIST (joint NIST-Ontolog meeting, 2004-07-09, see:
someone had mentioned that there is (or had been) a similar effort going
that was hosted at NIST not too long ago. Maybe someone from NIST can
jump in and tell us more ... please?
[I guess that's the beauty of open forums ... at least we all get to
know quickly, independent of consensus. :-)] (09)
Thanks again, Jon. Look forward to working with you on this in December,
if not sooner. (010)
