*REMINDER*    (02)

The subject session is coming up tomorrow Thursday 19-Oct-2006 
(starting at 17:30 UTC / 6:30pm BST / 1:30pm EDT / 10:30am PDT).    (03)

This joint NIST-Ontolog-NCOR initiative on the crucial subject of 
"Ontology Measurement and Evaluation" will be kicking-off 
tomorrow. Anyone who is, or believes that he/she will be 
implementing ontology-based initiatives, would want to join in 
and explore the subject matter with other participants of this 
mini-series. The series is expected to span the next 6 months or 
so. The best way to start this is to come tomorrow to this 
kick-off event!    (04)

... RSVP (by e-mailing the sender offline) if you are planning to 
attend and haven't already responded. We need the information to 
prepare enough resources to support everyone.    (05)

We look forward to having you at the session.    (06)

Regards.  =ppy

> *Abstract*:
> by Dr. Christopher A. Welty, IBM Watson Research Center
> One of the guiding principles of the web and its machine 
> interpretable successor the semantic web is to "let a million 
> flowers bloom." HTML was based on technology nearly two decades 
> old at the time (Hypertext), for which a research community 
> concerned mainly with Human-Computer interaction was 
> investigating what the "right way" to use hypertext for effective 
> communication was. The vast majority of early HTML pages 
> completely ignored this and yet the web thrived. Still, as the 
> web became a serious medium for dissemination, institutions for 
> whom effective communication was critical did begin to take this 
> research seriously and today's highly visible web pages are 
> designed by people with experience and training on how to "do it 
> right". The progress and evolution of the semantic web should 
> follow the same path - the semantic web standards (RDF, OWL, and 
> RIF) are based on decades-old technology from Knowledge 
> Representation and Databases, and there has been for about 15 
> years a research community associated with this field that has 
> studied what the "right way" to use these systems is. This field, 
> which I will call "ontology engineering" for this talk, is 
> concerned among other things with ontology quality and its impact.
> In this talk I will discuss research on characterizing ontology 
> quality and measuring the impact of quality on knowledge-based 
> systems.
