******************** Details ************************    (07)

You are cordially invited to join us at the upcoming Ontolog (virtual)
panel discussion session.    (08)

This online session, like all other Ontolog events, is open and free
of charge. Anyone who is interested, or (better still) who may have
something to contribute, is welcome. Please refer to event details on
the session page, to which the hyperlink is given at the top of this
message, where you will find session agenda, conference call dial-in
and other pertinent information.    (09)

Two parallel initaives are ongoing in the community, revolving around
the theme of "Open Ontology Repository". On the one hand, a working
group under the auspices of the Open Ontology Repository (OOR)
Initiative, and on the other, the discourse (and essentially a
discussion group that culminates in a two-day workshop) conducted as
the main focus for Ontology Summit 2008.    (010)

It is at the intersection of these two initiatives that this panel
discussion session is being held. The OpenOntologyRepository team is
taking the opportunity to have some of its members who are bringing
technology and infrastructure to the table to present them
side-by-side, and to discuss how these can all fit nicely together.
The OntologySummit2008 folks, on the other hand would want to take the
opportunity to survey (at least a subset of) the technology &
infrastructure landscape to gain insight into the state-of-art in
Ontology Registry and Repository.    (011)

Besides hearing from the panelists, we are setting aside ample time
after their briefings, for some good Q&A and discussions among all who
be participating in this session.    (012)

Please refer to details at the respective project homepages of the two
initiatives at:
