*Future of Semantic Web Technology at DARPA*
  by Mark Greaves    (06)

*Abstract*:    (07)

MarkGreaves: In this talk I will review the status of the DARPA's DAML 
program -- the flagship semantic web R&D program in the United States. 
DAML-funded researchers were key players in the development of OWL, 
OWL/S (OWL for Services), and SWRL (Semantic Web Rules Language), and 
they have created a large library of high-quality open source tools 
accessible at <http://www.semwebcentral.org>. The DAML program ends this 
year having exceeded its original goals. I will conclude with a 
discussion of the requirements for a new semantic web program at DARPA, 
and an invitation to the Ontolog community.     (08)
