We had a really wonderful session today with our 
invited speaker Dr. Matthew West (Reference Data 
Architecture and Standards Manager of Shell 
International Petroleum Company Limited) presenting his 
invited talk entitled: "From Ontology to Data Model: 
Choices and Design Decisions" as the 2nd session in the 
Ontolog "Database and Ontology" mini-series.    (01)

Our appreciations go out to Dr. West for sharing his
work, experience and insight with us. As always,
a big thank you to all the participants for joining us
and for contributing to the rich discussion we had
during the session.    (02)

Proceedings of the session are captured at our wiki
page, at:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2006_11_16    (03)

In particular, full audio recording of the session as
well as the telephone playback of it is
now available - see:
... Dr. West's talk today is adding another piece to 
the body of knowledge on ontology and ontological 
engineering that our community is building together. 
Thanks again!    (04)

Best regards.  =ppy    (05)

P.S. Note that there will be no call next week, in view 
of the fact that it will be Thanksgiving Day (a major 
US holiday) when we would have expected the call to be 
scheduled. To our US friends, Happy Thanksgiving!    (06)

P.P.S. We had a great Tutorial Session on "A Guide to 
Collaborating at Ontolog: Sharing files, discussions 
and the wiki on the Ontolog collaborative work 
environment" given by Mr. Peter Yim (CEO of CIM3) today 
too. Details are available at the session wiki page at:

> An ontology describes the types of things that exist, and rules that
> govern them, a data model defines records about things, and is the
> basis for a database design. Not all the information in an ontology
> may be needed (or can even be held) in a data model and there are a
> number of choices that need to be made. For example, some of the
> ontology may be held as reference data instead of as entity types.
> This talk will explore these choices, with illustrations from the ISO
> 15926-2 data model.
