We had a very good session with Dr. Timothy Redmond from Stanford 
Medical Informatics today. Dr. Redmond presented his talk on: 
"Developing Applications in Protege: The Protege Plugin 
Architecture" especially for those of us in the community who 
are, or are planning to, develop ontology-based applications. He 
walked us through the range of alternative approaches that are 
available to the developers, and made recommendations as to their 
appropriateness in different applications.    (01)

On behalf of the community, I would like to express our 
appreciations to Dr. Redmond for taking the time to give the talk 
and to have a dialog with us. And, as always, we thank to all the 
participants who joined us today.    (02)

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

In particular, full audio recording (as well as the podcast) of 
the session is now available too - see: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2006_06_29#nidNXC     (04)

Dr. Redmond's input today adds yet another important piece to the 
collective intelligence and body of knowledge that our community 
is building.    (05)

Best regards.  =ppy    (06)

P.S. We already have two exciting events lined up for the 
immediately following two weeks:    (07)

On Thu 06-Jul-2006, Dr. E. Michael Maximilien from IBM Research 
will be moderating our 2nd "Ontologizing Ontolog" discussion. The 
topic will be: "Ontologizing the Ontolog Body of Knowledge - 
Tools, Techniques, and Approaches Panel Discussion". Please refer 
to details at the session wiki page at: ConferenceCall_2006_07_06    (08)

On Thu 13-Jul-2006, Dr. Patrick Cassidy of MITRE will be 
presenting a talk entitled: "Defining vocabularies, Ontological 
and linguistic" providing the perspectives on the matter from the 
vantage point of a formal ontologist.    (09)

Mark your calendars now so that you won't miss them! E-mail me 
offline if you are planning to join us at these sessions.  =ppy

 > 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.    (014)

 > Topic: *Developing Applications in Protege*    (016)

 > *Abstract*: (by Tim Redmond)
 > Protege is a very popular ontology editor. In addition to its 
capabilities as a simple application for viewing and editing 
ontologies, it also boasts a highly flexible plugin architecture 
and a rich knowledge base application interface. In this talk we 
will describe approaches for developing graphical plugins 
embedded in the Protege graphical interface and to develop 
standalone applications based on the Protege knowledge base 
application interface.    (017)

 > *About the Speaker*:
 > *Dr. Timothy Redmond* is a recent addition to Stanford Medical 
Informatics' Protege project team who is taking over the 
responsibilities of the chief Protege architect. He received a 
B.S. in Mathematics from the University of California, Santa 
Barbara (1980) and a Ph.D. in mathematics from Princeton 
University (1984). Since that time, Dr. Redmond has worked in the 
area of formal methods and their application to verifying the 
correctness and security of computer systems. He has extensive 
experience with formal methods including experience using systems 
such as HOL, InaJo and SDVS.    (018)
