On behalf of the Ontolog community, I would like to express our 
appreciations to Dr. Christopher Welty, once again, for joining us this 
morning all the way from Italy, and to give us a very interesting and  
educational session on "An Overview of OntoClean." Thanks, also, to Bill 
McCarthy and Evan Wallace,  for recommending and for inviting Chris over 
in the first place. And, along with Chris, our appreciations also goes 
out to the Laboratory for Applied Ontology (LOA) in Trento, Italy, for 
paying Chris' call. Thanks also, to everyone who participated in the 
session.    (01)

The session proceedings, along with Chris' powerpoint slides (and 
additional resources/links) are available at:

As I was mentioning at the session, we were still experimenting with the 
freeconference recording service. If all goes well, we'll have the phone 
number for call-in replay of the session, as well as the audio files (in 
mp3 format) in a few hours that we can make available persistently at 
our site. So, stay tuned, especially for those who wished they were able 
to come to the talk, but couldn't due to schedule conflict.    (03)

> *Abstract*
> The Computer Science field of Ontology has been progressing in a 
> scatter-shot manner, and there has been little attempt to formalize 
> the techniques used and lessons learned from research. OntoClean was 
> one of the first attempts to build a formal foundation for ontological 
> analysis, which helped identify the most common logical modeling 
> mistakes and the justifications for why they are, in fact, mistakes. 
> In this talk, Dr. Welty will present an overview of the OntoClean 
> methodology for ontological analysis, and highlight the common 
> modeling problems with examples.
