For those who had missed our call yesterday, we had a great 
meeting. Special appreciation to Steve Ray of NIST for his 
preparation work, leading up to the meeting, and for chairing the 
meeting. Thanks to all who participated, and contributed 
invaluable ideas. Those who attended confirmed the importance and 
timeliness of the need for more work in the Ontology Measurement 
& Evaluation area.    (01)

We confirmed the joint initiative between NIST, Ontolog and NCOR, 
in establishing a small program to tackle various issues in 
Ontology Measurement and Evaluation. This will start in about a 
month and will last for about 6 months, with about 6 events 
(featuring both NIST and others' work) that will be scheduled 
during that time span. NIST (under Steve Ray's guidance) will be 
providing the leadership, and is offering some existing (and 
already funded) work to kick-start the program. They solicit 
other interested parties, especially those who have similarly 
funded tasks, to join forces in this program, to deliver some of 
the desired outcome.    (02)

Proceedings from the 2006.08.22 call is captured (in appreciable 
details) on the wiki already at: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2006_08_22    (03)

Be on the lookout for a schedule of activities relating to this 
project that will be announced within the next few weeks.    (04)

As always, input, suggestion, ideas ... are welcomed!    (05)

Best regards.  =ppy    (06)

P.S. Coming up next Thursday is a similar planning meeting, this 
time, around the recent community-drive initiative on "Database 
and Ontology". The session page for the Thu 2006.08.31 call is 
already up. Please refer to details there: 
RSVP now, and make sure you come join us, especially if you have 
already indicated interest on the subject, or if you do care 
about this very important topic. Please continue to discuss the 
matter by posting to the [ontolog-forum] listserv, or to the 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?DatabaseAndOntology wiki 
page.  Tx.  =ppy    (07)

P.P.S. I will be traveling (starting tomorrow) and will be 
out-of-pocket until next Wed 8/30. Therefore, don't worry if you 
don't hear from me, or see the freeconference 'invitation' until 
very close to the call. Anyhow, call details are already there on 
the ConferenceCall_2006_08_31 session page already! (see link 
under P.S. above.)  =ppy
