Hello Pavithra, (01)
Thank you for the suggestion, and for joining us today - catching the
last two days of the three-months' activities we call
You might note that the theme for this year's summit is "Toward
Ontology-based Standards." (03)
It might be useful for one to check out the details documented at the
summit homepage -
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2009 -- try
looking through our description and goals, check out some of the
earlier exchanges (like:
and the conference call sessions (particularly the virtual panel
sessions of Mar-12, 19 & 26) -- one will probably find that our goal
(today) is less about "discovering what would be a good ontology
project" but rather, about "what could be used to articulate the power
of synergizing the ontology and standards communities in the form of a
communique that will help bring this promising technical area to the
attention of others." (04)
Regards. =ppy (05)
P.S. I believe Steve's message was directed to the champions of the
projects that were discussed today. Unfortunately, solicitation of
project ideas came and went a little while ago. =ppy
