We had one of the best attended Ontolog sessions today, Feb. 2, 
2006, with Dr. Nicola Guarino from the (Italian) National 
Research Council -  Institute for Cognitive Sciences and 
Technologies, Laboratory for Applied Ontology (LOA) in Trento, 
Italy, who presented to our community his talk on: "Making basic 
ontological assumptions: the DOLCE experience". The presentation 
was absolutely brilliant.    (01)

Thank you very much, Dr. Guarino, for sharing with us your work 
and insight. Appreciations are also due to Ontolog co-convener, 
Dr. Leo Obrst of Mitre, who had made the invitation to Dr. 
Guarino on behalf of our community and helped co-organize this 
event. And, as always, thanks to all who came, participated and 
helped contribute to yet another great Ontolog session.    (02)

The digitized (mp3) audio recording of the entire session has
now been posted. That will be archived in our knowledge
repository for reference and download by anyone interested. See
details at:

Dr. Guarino's input today adds true value to this collective
knowledge and intelligence that our community is building.    (03)


Thanks & regards.  =ppy    (04)

P.S. Our major upcoming events already lined up, will include:    (05)

Thursday, Mar. 2, 2006, Professor Dr. Asuman Dogac from the 
Middle East Technical University (METU) in Turkey will be 
presenting to the community. Her talk is entitled: "Exploiting 
ebXML Registry Semantics in the eHealth Domain" ... Please refer 
to details on the wiki session page at: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2006_03_02    (06)

Wednesday, Mar. 15, 2006 all afternoon EST, where custodians of 
key upper ontologies and basic ontologists from around the world 
will be convening at our Upper Ontology Summit event. This Summit 
is co-organized by Ontolog, NIST and SICoP (and its ONTAC/COSMO 
Working Groups). The event will be featured both virtually (like 
our nominal augmented conference call events) as well as 
physically, on-site at the US National Institute for Standards 
and Technology (Gaithersburg, MD, US). See our wiki page: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?UpperOntologySummit for 
more details, and be on the lookout for further announcements.    (07)

Mark your calendars now so that you won't missed these great 
upcoming events.  =ppy
