We had a great group of participants and a wonderful talk by 
Professor Dr. Asuman Dogac from the Middle East Technical 
University (METU) in Turkey, who presented to the community her 
talk entitled: "Exploiting ebXML Registry Semantics in the 
eHealth Domain".    (01)

Thank you very much, Professor Dogac, for sharing with us your 
work. Appreciations are due to Ms. Monica Martin of Sun 
Microsystems, who extended the invitation to Professor Dogac on 
our behalf. Thanks also, to all who came, participated and helped 
contribute to another successful Ontolog speaker session.    (02)

The digitized (mp3) audio recording of the entire session has
now been posted. That is being archived in our knowledge
repository for reference and download by anyone interested. See
details at:
Professor Dogac's input today adds true value to this collective
knowledge and intelligence that our community is building.    (03)

Thanks & regards.  =ppy    (04)

P.S. Note that our Upper Ontology Summit event is less than 2 
weeks away!    (05)

Wednesday, Mar. 15, 2006 all afternoon EST, upper ontology 
experts and custodians of practically all key public upper 
ontologies from around the world will be convening at this 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 
or our wiki page at: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?UpperOntologySummit for 
more details.    (06)

One must register to attend -- please note the registration 
deadlines of Mar. 6 for on-site and Mar. 11 for remote attendees, 
and make sure you have done that before the deadlines!  =ppy
