Wonderful presentations and discussion today, as usual, in our 
"Ontology Applications & Implementations" Technical Discussion 
Session.    (01)

It was unfortunate that Dr. Denise Bedford felt sick, and was not 
able to join us today. Her presentation is being postponed to a 
later date. ... Get well soon, Denise!    (02)

Kudos to Mr. Duane Nickull (Adobe Systems) and Mr. Kurt Conrad 
(The Sagebrush Group, and Ontolog co-convener) for having 
masterminded, organized and moderated this session. Judging from 
the responses, this promises to be, again, the first of a series 
of discussions we can have. Through this series, our community 
can continue to discover what is out there, in terms of 
ontologically based applications, and with such cases, allow us 
to compare notes, and delve into the success stories, issues and 
challenges they bring.    (03)

Proceedings of today's session are captured at our wiki page, at: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2005_12_15    (04)

In particular, full audio recording of the session (along with 
the panelists' slides) is now available too - see: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2005_12_15#nidHJ8    (05)

Questions and discourse today were almost evenly distributed 
between the theory and the practice of ontologies. For those who 
to find out more about the former, Dr. Leo Obrst from MITRE (and 
Ontolog co-convener), will be presenting again, in a full 
"Ontolog Invited Speaker" session on Thursday, January 12, 2006. 
His talk will be on: "What is an ontology? - A Briefing on the 
Range of Semantic Models." There's going to be a lot in this talk 
for both beginners and veterans alike. Mark you calendars now and 
refer to details on the Ontolog wiki closer to the time.    (06)

Best regards.  =ppy    (07)

P.S. Please note that we will break for two weeks for the Holiday 
Season. Therefore, there will be no conference call on Thursdays 
2005.12.22 & 2005.12.29.
P.P.S. Our next regular active members conference call will be on 
  Thu 2005.01.05 (Kurt Conrad will chair the session), and the 
immediate week after that, we'll be having Leo Obrst's "What is 
an ontology?" session.    (08)

... 'til then, Happy Holidays, everyone!   =ppy
