Hey Ontolog Forum!    (01)

After a very successful first session we had last year, this is the second
time we are doing a panel discussion on Ontology Applications and
Implmentations. In his session, entitled "Ontology Applications &
Implementations (Take-II)", we will, again, invites experts and all
participants to join us in exchanging insights on implementation issues
pertaining to ontologies and semantics.   Dial in information is at the
bottom of the page.    (02)

The session is comprised of four small presentations (10 minutes each)
discussing aspects of real world implementation of Ontological and Semantic
applications. Each presenter will follow their talk with a strictly limited
5 minute minor Q&A. At the end of the fourth Q&A session, a larger general
Q&A will take place and evolve into a free form conversation.    (03)

The gist is to learn what approaches are being used in the field to solve
some of the ontology concerns in today's IT world. Presenters will
generously share their experiences including issues they encountered and how
they solved them. Talks will also be open to what might be in the future.    (04)

# DuaneNickull / KurtConrad (Co-Moderators)    (RIU)    (05)

    * Abstract: Ontology and Semantics are subjects that often get discussed
in the theoretical world. Many people who read the work are left with
questions such as "How can I implement this" or at least wonder what some
concrete first steps might be. This session will tackle the issue of
implementation by having speakers share their experiences in terms of the
problems they faced and the solutions they chose to solve their ontological
and semantic problems.    (06)

Speakers: Mr. Peter O'Kelly - Burton Group    (07)

    * Title: Data Modeling is Underrated: A Bright Future Ahead in the Grand
    * Abstract: Logical data modeling is often misunderstood and underrated,
in part because of limitations in related techniques and tools. This talk
will briefly summarize some historical challenges, review some reasons why
logical data modeling is more relevant than ever before, and project how
logical data modeling and ontology-related modeling have a complementary
relationship.        (08)

Mr. John McGrath - Fast Search    (09)

    * Abstract:    TBC    (010)

Gunar Penekis - Adobe Systems    (011)

    * Title: The XML Metadata Platform (XMP)
    * Abstract: (placeholder) Gunars talk will be on XMP as a metadata
serialization format based on RDF and XML. Gunar will explore what XMP is,
it's relationship to RDF (look at code), and schema support, partners, SDK
4.0. The XML Metadata Platform was designed to aide with Ontological and
semantic implementations in mind and strives to be standards compliant.
People looking at implementing some form of semantic or ontological
declarations might wish to review the open source software development kit.    (012)

Roger Sippl - Above All Software    (013)

    * Title: Composite Applications Built from Real World Enterprise
Ontologies in SOA Environments
    * Abstract: The advent of SOA and composite applications has resulted in
a new requirement for ontology and semantic implementation to help
understand resources. Ontology's have proven imperative to sharing
information across multiple taxonomies. Above All software CEO Roger Sippl
will share his company's experience in sorting out a methodology to meet
these requirements.    (014)
