We are pleased to announce that Dr. Matthew West from Shell is 
returning on Thursday, June 1, 2006, to present a talk on ISO 
18876 - integration of industrial data for exchange access and 
sharing (IIDEAS). This will provide an architectural framework 
for integrating/federating and what it involves.    (02)

This is a part of the series of events (talks and discussion 
sessions) between April and July 2006 that revolve around the 
topic: "Ontologizing the Ontolog Body of Knowledge" during which 
this community will explore the "what's" and "how's" to the 
development of a semantically interoperable application, using 
the improved access to the community knowledge of Ontolog as a 
case in point.    (03)
