It is with great excitement that I am writing to let you know that
Protégé is about to enter its second decade. It was during
1987, when I was a Ph.D. student at Stanford University, that the
first incarnation of the Protégé system was completed and when it
run for the first time. Implemented in Interlisp-D on a Xerox
workstation, the first version of the system, which we called
enabled us to build an ontology of a cancer clinical trial, acquire
instances of that ontology, and run the clinical-trial knowledge
on a special using the ONCOCIN technology that Samson Tu had been
working on at the time.
This summer is going to be great experience for Protégé
We will be marking the 20th anniversary of the first Protégé
We will be hosting the tenth annual International Protégé Conference
http://protege.stanford.edu/conference/2007/). And we will mark
the 75,000th registered Protégé user!
These are very exciting times as we look back over the past two
decades of Protégé development and think forward to the new
architecture for Protégé version 4.0.
The 10th International Protégé Conference takes place July 1518,
2007, in magnificent Budapest. You can register for the
directly at our Web site:
Please plan on joining the entire Protégé development team,
die-hard user community, and lots of friends and fellow users who
interested in Protégé, in ontologies, and in semantic technology
See you in Budapest for the celebration!
