We had a great session with Dr. Matthew West from Shell today. 
Dr. West presented his talk on: "Integrating Data or Ontologies - 
A look at the ISO 18876 Architecture" and showed those who were 
present the realities and some alternatives to integration of 
data, data models and ontologies.    (01)

Our appreciations go out to our invited speaker, Dr. Matthew West 
for sharing his work and insights with us. And, as always, thanks 
to all the participants who joined us.    (02)

Proceedings of the session are captured at our wiki page, at:

In particular, full audio recording of the session is now 
available too - see: 
Dr. West's input today adds yet another important piece to the 
collective intelligence and body of knowledge that our community 
is building.    (04)
