48 sets of input were received for our "Ontology Summit 2007" 
Survey. Let's give a big "Thank you" to everyone who contributed.    (01)

The survey questionnaire and the responses received are now 
available on the wiki. See: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2007_Survey/Response     (02)

Further analysis and synthesis on these input and the discourse 
on the forum will be made by those who have volunteered and our 
workshop co-chairs.    (03)

To help us move forward quickly to get ready for our Apr. 23 & 24 
face-to-face meetings, we plan to spend some time during our 
Ontolog conference call this Thursday to coordinate that work 
(analysis and synthesis work for Ontology Summit 2007). Please 
mark your calendar now and come join us on Apr-5 (this Thursday) 
if you are interested or would want to get involved.    (04)

Thanks & regards.  =ppy    (05)

P.S. If you are planning to be at the Apr. 23 & 24 meetings and 
haven't yet registered (on-site or remotely), please do so at 
your earliest convenience. See details at:
