We had a really wonderful session today (21-Dec-2006), 
for Session-2 of the NIST-Ontolog-NCOR mini-series on 
"Ontology Measurement and Evaluation." Dr. Steven Ray 
(NIST) presided over the session with invited speaker, 
Professor Barry Smith (NCOR) giving us a brilliant talk 
on: "The OBO Foundry - A Gold Standard Approach to 
Ontology Evaluation."    (01)

Our appreciations go out to Professor Barry Smith for 
his great lecture, to Dr. Steven Ray for championing 
this mini-series, and, as always, to all the 
participants for joining us and for contributing to the 
rich discussion that followed the talk.    (02)

Proceedings of the session are captured on our wiki
page, at:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2006_12_21    (03)

In particular, full audio recording of the session is
now available - see:
... Professor Smith, Dr. Ray, and everyone's remarks 
today resulted in another key contribution to the body 
of knowledge on ontology and ontological engineering 
that our community is building together. Thanks again!    (04)

Best regards.  =ppy
