Thanks to all the contributions and support from the community,
Ontology Summit 2007 has been a real experience.    (01)

Highlight:    (02)

*  the summit was co-sponsored by 49 institutions -- which included
some of the most prestigious organizations in the broader domain. See:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2007#nidT6A    (03)

*  about 400 messages were exchanged on the [ontology-summit] forum
since the 18-Jan-2007 OntologySummit2007 Launch. Another ~1200
messages were exchanged on [ontolog-forum] between Jan~Apr'07. --
Generating a totally unprecedented level of activities (within the
community) in rigorous discourse among some of the best minds in the
field. See, respectively:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/forum/ontology-summit/ &
http://ontolog.cim3.net/forum/ontolog-forum/    (04)

*  52 people responded to the OntologySummit2007_Survey, engaging
participants from the broader community involving some 34
constituencies. See:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2007_Survey    (05)

*   (to date) the OntologySummit2007_Communique has been endorsed by
56 individuals. See:

1.  We'll be devoting some time at today's regular Ontolog operations
planning and review call to do a postmortem, and to discussion some
possible follow-up actions. You are invited to come join us at the
call. See details at:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2007_05_03    (07)

2.  In the last OntologySummit2007 organizing committee meeting (Tue
2007.05.01), a similar exercise was conducted. Anyone interested can
see the proceedings from that call at:

3.  A few suggestions were received to re-open the dialog to further
refine the Summit Communique and come up with a "next version" of the
document. After due discussion it was decided that since this
communique serves well to represent a snapshot position of the summit
conveners, we will (after correcting typos and formatting enhancement
where applicable) just leave it at version 1.0  for now. We would,
however, invite the community to post their comments and further
suggestions, which we can use as a reference for future work. Please
post them to:
