Hello everybody.. I'm a new user, a biologist interested in ontologies, 
you can see here my profile: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ClaudioCardone    (01)

First I wanted to write a post to introduce myself, but finally I've 
decided to start directly with a question for the community, so to talk 
of something of useful (at least for me, for the moment!)
In these days I'm trying to understand which information integration 
systems (ontology-based) are currently available. In many papers I've 
read about TAMBIS, but since the 2000 up to now I can't understand 
what's happened: no official papers, no updated website, no mentions 
among the past projects of the Manchester University 
(http://img.cs.man.ac.uk/). This article 
says that it's available at http://img.cs.man.ac.uk/tambis, but nothing 
is there.
Second case: BACIIS. In the BACIIS website 
(http://baciis.engr.iupui.edu/) there isn't anymore online access to the 
system nor software download. Lack of any update information in this 
case, too. The last paper is dated 2005 
Third, and last: SEMEDA. The paper describing SEMEDA 
(http://www.bioinfo.de/isb/2002/02/0021/main.html) says that the system 
is available at (http://www-bm.cs.uni-magdeburg.de/semeda) but, as 
usually, this give back a 404 Error (Not Found). There's another SEMEDA 
website (http://www-bm.ipk-gatersleben.de/semeda) but authentication is 
required. Anyway no explanations about the authentication, subscribing 
etc are given there, neither contacts.    (02)

Might anyone help me to understand what's happened in these cases? Which 
similar information integration systems do you know and/or use?    (03)

Thank you
Claudio    (04)
