Re: Ontology Summit 2007 - Ontology, Taxonomy, Folksonomy:
Understanding the Distinctions    (01)

First of all, I would like to thank everyone who has already 
provided input through the survey. Since we have not had a chance 
to hear from everyone yet (especially those who are subscribed to 
the [ontology-summit] mailing list (whom we definitely want to 
hear from ... everyone of you), I am extending the deadline on 
this input collection process to tomorrow (27-Mar-2007).    (02)

Therefore, if you still have not returned your survey - it's at: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/file/survey/summit72.html - kindly do it now!    (03)

I'd also like to thank some of you (Barry Smith, Michael Uschold 
John Sowa, Paola Di Maio, Tim McGrath, ... in particular) for 
your  suggestions on making the survey clearer to the 
respondents. Please look at it again ... I believe it should be a 
lot less confusing now.    (04)

Anyhow, we need all your input to help us reach the summit's goal 
of helping the broader community understand the distinctions 
between terms like ontology, taxonomy, thesaurus, folksonomy, 
conceptual model, schema, etc. With that, hopefully, everyone can 
better deal with the different types of "semantic structures" 
that fall broadly within that spectrum, when comparing or 
applying them.    (05)

After collecting the terms, meanings and representative 
artifacts, we will be soliciting the help from some of you (who 
have kindly volunteered or confirmed your support) to help 
champion the synthesis and consolidation of these input into a 
framework from the perspectives of the various constituencies 
involved. We need as much help in this part of the process as we 
can; therefore, if you are in a position to help (between now and 
the Apr-23 & 24 conference), please e-mail me off-line.    (06)

Thanks & regards.  =ppy    (07)

P.S. by the way, for those who are planning to join us at the 
Apr-23 & 24 workshops and symposium (either on-site at NIST 
(Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA) or remotely (via telephone 
dial-in), please note that you will need to register for the 
event(s). Please refer to registration information at:
