On Thursday 25-Jan-2007, we had a really thought provoking Panel 
Discussion session on the subject: "Ontology Applications in 
Emergency Response."  The expert panel included Mr. Rex Brooks, 
Professor Bob Smith, Ms. Michelle Raymond and Professor Kenneth 
Baclawski. The event came to being after months of planning and 
design by our co-organizers Mr. Rex Brooks and Professor Bob 
Smith. The briefings by the panelists were excellent; and that 
was followed by enthusiastic discussions that carried the session 
into overtime.    (01)

Our appreciations go out to our event co-organizers, to all the 
panelists, and as always, to everyone who participated at the 
session.    (02)

Proceedings of the session are captured on our wiki
page, at:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2007_01_25    (03)

In particular, full audio recording of the session is
now available - see:
... our panelists insights and the ensuing discussion in this 
session now makes another significant contribution to the body of 
knowledge on ontology and ontological engineering that our 
community is building together. Thanks again!    (04)

Best regards.  =ppy    (05)

P.S. On Thursdays 8-February-2007, Dr. Matthew West will be 
presenting us the 4th Event in the "Database And Ontology" 
Mini-Series. Mr. Martin O'Connor, a Researcher from the Stanford 
Medical Informatics will be our invited speaker for that session. 
He will be giving a talk on "Efficiently Querying Relational 
Databases using OWL and SWRL."  Mark your calendars now, and be 
on the look out for the official announcement of the event which 
will be coming out soon.  Tx. =ppy
