Subject: Proceedings: Joint OpenOntologyRepository - 
OntologySummit2008 Panel Discussion Session - Thu 2008.02.28    (01)

We had one of the most wonderful discussion session on Thursday, 
28-Febuary-2008. The event was a Joint 
OpenOntologyRepository-OntologySummit2008 Panel Discussion, 
co-chaired by Dr. LeoObrst (Ontolog, MITRE) and Dr. FrankOlken 
(NSF) during which the participants surveyed some of the 
"Ontology Registry and Repository Technology & Infrastructure 
Landscape." On the panel were: Mr. Bruce Bargmeyer (XMDR, LBNL), 
Mr. Mike Dean (DAML, W3C, BBN), Professor Mark Musen (NCBO, 
Stanford-BMIR), Mr. Farrukh Najmi (OASIS ebXML RegRep, Wellfleet 
Software) and Mr. Peter Yim (Ontolog, CIM3).    (02)

The briefings from the speakers were followed by enthusiastic and 
thought provoking discussions. We would like to send a huge 
"thank you" to the co-chairs, the panelists and everyone who 
participated at the session.    (03)

Archives of this session is now accessible from its session page 
... where one will find the proceedings, all the slides, as well 
as the audio recording (mp3). The audio archive is available via 
telephone playback as well as podcast too.    (04)

The depth and breadth of the material covered, the knowledge and 
insights shared, and the collaborative attitude shown at this 
event really exemplified what an open community of practice is 
all about. What we learned from the session will be tremendously 
valuable to the OpenOntologyRepository and the OntologySummit2008 
initiatives.    (05)

Thanks again, everyone!    (06)

Regards.  =ppy    (07)
