Topic: *Exploiting ebXML Registry Semantics in the eHealth Domain*    (05)

*Abstract*:    (06)

ebXML registry is capable of storing semantics about the registry 
objects. This semantics is restricted to classification 
hierarchies with properties. However it is possible to represent 
some Web Ontology Language (OWL) constructs in the registry and 
through stored procedures it is possible to make the registry OWL 
aware. I will first discuss how to make ebXML registries OWL 
aware and then through an application in eHealth, I will discuss 
how this semantics can be exploited.    (07)

*About the Speakers*:    (08)
