We had a wonderful turnout and a really great invited speaker 
session earlier today.    (01)

Thank you very much, Ms. Martin, for showing us the landscape of 
Business Process technology and standards, as well as sharing 
your insight on the opportunities for semantic reasoning in 
Business Processes and the broader domain of eBusiness and 
eBusiness standards. Thanks are due, also, to all who joined us 
at the session, and contributed to a very lively discussion.    (02)

Material from Monica's talk is available on our session wiki page 
at: http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2005_05_26    (03)

... in particular,    (04)

1. Monica has updated the slides and have added an additional 
reference slide with all the links to the references she promised 
she will be providing. See: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2005_05_26#nidCNQ     (05)

2. She has also posted a reference presentation from Sun 
colleague, Ronald Ten-Hove, entitled: "Orchestration, 
Choreography and Collaboration in Web Services and ebXML". For 
those who are interested, see:

3. the digitized (mp3) audio recording of the entire talk and the 
ensuing discussion has also been posted. That will be archived in 
our knowledge repository for reference and download by anyone 
interested. Additionally, for the next 10 days, telephone 
playback will also available. See details at:

Thanks & regards.  =ppy    (08)

P.S. Our invited speaker for June will be David Whitten & Chris 
Richardson from WorldVistA/OpenVistA projects. David and Chris 
are among the leadership of this charitable organization / open 
source community that is making VistA (the largest integrated 
hospital software package in the world, originally developed for 
the US Veteran Affairs Hospitals) as well as healthcare 
information technology in general, more affordable and more 
widely available both within the United States and 
internationally. They will be presenting on Thursday, June 16,

> *Abstract*:
> Business is looking for ways to squeeze dollars and increase operational

> integration and business process management are gaining momentum, with 
> evolving standards in tow. Foundational and composed services are being 
> developed and advanced capabilities in the Business Process Management 
> (BPM) space are gaining momentum, following on the tails of large 
> corporate technology investment (and marketing dollars).
> Process automation and integration are being approached in many ways:
>   *  Through computable languages
>   *  Through messaging
>   *  Through logical entities and abstractions
> With new and advanced capabilities, abstractions and constraints 
> (context, policy, quality of service, etc), the complexity brings many 
> challenges. Emerging technologies are embracing mathematical and 
> semantic building blocks to enable future BPM solutions (such as 
> semantic variables, conformance typing systems, process matching, etc). 
> Taking a pragmatic iterative approach, new conceptual building blocks 
> are being developed to lay the groundwork for use of semantic reasoning 
> as part of the ongoing progress and success of BPM. This brief will 
> harvest a few examples evident in emerging technologies.
