registration is now available for the Symposium that marks the conclusion of
our 3-month Ontology Summit 2010 - Creating the Ontologists of the Future. As
most of you know, it will be held at the National Institute of Standards and
Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, MD, USA on March 15-16, 2010.
The registration page is at http://www.nist.gov/public_affairs/confpage/100315b.htm.
Please note that registration closes on March 9th, a policy requirement
because NIST is a U.S. Government facility. So please don’t delay in
registering – there is no charge for this meeting.
You can find plenty of information about getting to NIST, including
nearby hotels, at http://www.nist.gov/public_affairs/visitor/visitor.htm.
Many of the hotels offer corporate and association discounts, so be sure to
ask. Typical rates are around $150/night.
And of course, you can always keep updated on our ongoing
discussions, surveys, and progress, at http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2010.
Our Summit surveys, which are a critical piece of collecting input from you,
close on Thursday, February 25, 2010 (the day after tomorrow!), so please visit
if you haven’t already.
We are looking forward to what promises to be another
productive and visible Ontology Summit. See you there!
Steven R. Ray and Barry Smith, Co-Chairs
Ontology Summit 2010
