All,    (01)

1. We don't have an event today, but the regular weekly 
conference call for active members will still be on. We 
won't have a heavy agenda today (as some of those who 
would usually show up are traveling), and the call will 
probably be less than 1 hour. Besides the usual 
sync-up, we could spend some time on looking back at 
2006, and discussion on what else would be interesting 
to do in 2007. I would also encourage new members to 
join us at the call, just to say 'hello' and to get a 
feel for the 'virtual meeting' setting. Please refer to 
details at: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2006_12_07     (02)

2. By the way, for those who are unfamiliar with the 
routine, our regular weekly time slot for meetings and 
events is 1~2 hours starting 10:30am PST / 1:30pm EST / 
7:30pm CET / 18:30 GMT/UTC (or its daylight saving time 
counterpart.) Proper announcements will go out for 
scheduled events (like invited talks, panel 
discussions, etc.) and probably no announcements for 
the regular weekly conference calls for active members 
(unless it's a cancellation.) I'd encourage you to mark 
your calendars, and block out this time slot, as a lot 
of us do (if you haven't already.)    (03)

3. We'll have several exciting events coming up in the 
next two weeks before we retire for the holidays:    (04)
