We are pleased to announce that *Dr. Patrick Cassidy* from MITRE 
will be joining us on Thursday, July 13, 2006, to present a talk 
on *Defining Vocabularies, Ontological and Linguistic: A Tool for 
Ontologizing Ontolog*.    (02)

This is the 10th event in the series of events of talks and 
discussions (between April and July 2006) that revolve around the 
topic: "Ontologizing the Ontolog Body of Knowledge" during which 
this community explores 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)

*Conference call-in details*:    (04)

Date: Thursday, July 13, 2006
Start Time:  17:30 UTC / 1:30pm EDT / 10:30am PDT
   (World Time:
Session Duration: ~2 Hours
Dial-in Number: +1-641-696-6600 (Iowa)
Participant Access Code: "686564#"
Shared-screen support will be available    (05)

Topic: *Defining Vocabularies, Ontological and Linguistic: A Tool 
for Ontologizing Ontolog*    (06)

*Abstract*: (by Pat Cassidy)    (07)

For over ten years, study groups have been exploring the 
potential for broad agreement on a common upper ontology as a 
tool for semantic interoperability. The vision of how the upper 
ontology will enable semantic interoperability is usually stated 
in terms of unifying the semantics of multiple databases, or 
mapping multiple domain ontologies through a common upper 
ontology or interlingua. This talk will describe how utility of 
the upper ontology for semantic integration goes beyond these 
scenarios, and will propose the use of an upper ontology in a way 
that may immediately affect the task of ontologizing the Ontolog.    (08)

*About the Speaker*:    (09)

*Dr. Patrick Cassidy* has been involved in building ontologies 
since 1992. He is currently working at MITRE as a Senior 
Artificial Intelligence Engineer. Prior to that, he was an 
ontologist at VerticalNet, one of the pioneers in applying 
ontological engineering to eBusiness solutions. Dr. Cassidy has 
been playing an active leadership role in the ontology community, 
which include his founding and chairing of the ONTAC-WG (Ontology 
and Taxonomy Coordinating Working Group) of SICoP; as well as his 
key contribution in organizing the recent Upper Ontology Summit 
(Mar. 15, 2006). He received his Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1971.    (010)

P.S. This "Ontologizing Ontolog" series will culminate in our 
imminent face-to-face meeting in Northern California, which will 
start with a full-day workshop at Stanford (colocated with the 
9th International Protege Conference) on July 23, 2006. For more
