All,    (01)

For those of us who were at FOIS-2006 and attended the 
NCOR plenary meeting there (evening of 09-Nov-2006), 
you might remember Steve Ray mentioning that NIST will 
be hosting their "Interoperability Week" again in 2007, 
and it is tentatively scheduled for the week of 
23-April-2007 at Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA.    (02)

Following the success of the "Upper Ontology Summit" 
that Ontolog and NIST co-organized for the same 
occasion earlier this year (Interoperability Week - 
Mar. 2006) we are planning to put together another one 
for April 2007.    (03)

Steve Ray, Leo Obrst and I had briefly discussed the 
matter (while we were all at the FOIS conference) and 
decided that we will not be limiting ourselves to just 
addressing upper ontology issues this time. We also 
agreed that we wanted more than the 1.5~2.0 months 
worth of virtual discussion among the conveners, prior 
to the face-to-face event, to allow us to gather more 
input from the community and to better plan the program.    (04)

This is a call for suggestions and participation. 
Similar to our last event (please refer to: 
we would want to form a team of "conveners", comprising 
(besides the organizers), key-participants and 
co-sponsors. If you are interested, please drop us 
(Steve, Leo and I) a note off-line indicating your 
interest. We will start a separate mailing-list shortly 
to engage this group to help put this event together.    (05)

In particular, if you were one of the conveners of the 
Mar.2006 UpperOntologySummit, we look forward to your 
continued participation. Also, if your institution or 
company endorses the type of work we are doing, please 
start trying to convince them to be our co-sponsor.    (06)

Anything else ... Steve? Leo?    (07)

We look forward to hear from as many of you as 
possible. RSVP now.    (08)

Thanks & regards.  =ppy
