On Thursday 24-Jan-2008, Dr. Matthew West (Shell International 
Petroleum Company), champion of the Ontolog "Database And 
Ontology" series, presented the 12th and final episode of the 
series. Dr. Holger Knublauch (Vice President for product 
development at TopQuadrant) was our invited speaker for the 
event. Dr. Knublauch gave a talk entitled: "Information 
Integration Intelligence with Semantic Technology" and shared 
with us the capabilities of the wonderful tool suite and client 
applications that he and his TopQuadrant associates have put 
together, in a really wonderful presentation.    (01)

The Ontolog "Database And Ontology" series is a community-driven 
set of activities which  started back in August 2006 on the 
prompt from Professor Tatiana Malyuta (CUNY). A planning session 
came together shortly, which identified a Program & Technical 
Advisory Team comprising Dr. Matthew West (Lead), Dr. Adrian 
Walker, Professor Atilla Elci, Mr. Chris Partridge, Dr. Leo 
Obrst, Mr. Peter Yim, Dr. Susie Stephens & Professor Tatiana Malyuta.    (04)

Through the leadership of Dr. West and the guidance of the 
advisory team, twelve (12) high quality virtual sessions were 
presented between Oct.2006 and Jan.2008. The sessions touched 
upon major facets on the topic of "Database And Ontology" and 
drew some of the top experts in the domain as speakers and
