Folks,    (01)

Full proceedings from our Thu 2009.06.18 virtual panel session, where
Dr. Nicola Guarino and some of his fellow Executive Council members
presented the newly founded International Association for Ontology and
its Applications (IAOA), is now available on line. You will find the
slides, audio recording, chat transcripts, as well as links other
resources there. The 18-Jun-2009 IAOA session was well attended, with
wonderful presentations and discussions. If you missed it, or wanted
to revisit this great event, see:

I understand from Nicola that more than 280 people has already
expressed their interest in the association by subscribing to the
[iaoa-general] mailing list*, and that the association will soon be in
a position (once the online membership/payment system is in place) to
announce to that list so subscribers can formally join IAOA. ... So,
stay tuned!    (03)
