Leo, Peter, and Steve,    (01)

I like Steve's suggestion:    (02)

This is related to a talk I gave in August (abstract below):    (04)

      Extending Semantic Interoperability    (05)

As a shorter title, I would suggest "Semantic Systems".
This is an all-inclusive title that suggests a commitment
to support the semantics of all formats and representations
used in all aspects of systems, old or new.  That includes
the WWW, the databases, the GUIs, the design tools, the
documentation, the programming languages, etc.  Even more
important, it includes the semantics of the world, as
viewed by the people who use all these systems.    (06)

                 Extending Semantic Interoperability
            To Legacy Systems and an Unpredictable Future    (08)

                           John F. Sowa    (09)

Abstract.  This talk discusses issues of semantic interoperability,
the role of ontology, and the requirements for supporting a graceful
migration from legacy systems and for accommodating unexpected
circumstances that may arise in the future.  A central theme is the
role of formal systems of logic, ontology, and knowledge representation.
To provide some perspective on current systems and the potential for
the future, it begins with a survey of some historical developments
in computer science and artificial intelligence.    (010)
