Subject: [ubl-ndrsc] [Fwd: Presentation on "Semantics, Ontologies & UBL"]

We are invited!  Please let me know privately if you can't make it, 
just so we know how many people to expect.

Subject: Presentation on "Semantics, Ontologies & UBL"
Date: Wed, 27 Mar 2002 12:21:09 -0800
From: "Peter P. Yim" <yimpp@cim-oem.com>
Organization: CIM Engineering, Inc.
To: ubl-lcsc@lists.oasis-open.org, "Eve L. Maler" <eve.maler@sun.com>, 
   Jon Bosak <jon.bosak@sun.com>, soul-talk@cim3.com

Further to our discussion (and earlier discussions as well) at the UBL 
face-to-face meeting last
week in Barcelona, we have schedule the captioned presentation at a 
LCSC & NDRSC joint phone
conference  scheduled for Tuesdays 9:00-11:00 California Time. This 
will be done prior to LCSC
getting on to its regular weekly meeting agenda.

I have been asking for the opportunity to make this presentation 
(along with friends of mine who
have been working on knowledge representation, ontologies and some 
aspects of the semantic web) in
that I am seeing a lot of parallels in what UBL is doing, to what the 
semantic web people are
trying to get accomplished. I believe understanding what each other 
(UBL members and ontologists)
is doing and having a dialog between the two parties will be 
beneficial to both. The session will
last about 45-60 minutes, with a presentation, followed by some time 
for Q&A. Joining me in this
presentation will be Dr. Leo Obrst (W3C Web Ontology Working Group & 
IEEE Standard Upper Ontology
working group), and Mr. Jack Park (pioneer in XTM work, and 
author/editor of the upcoming, first
book on Topic Maps).

Details of the time and venue --

Date/Time:  Tuesday 2nd April, 2002 between 9-10 a.m California time

The numbers to call are:
954 797 0718 (international)
877 322 9648 (U.S.)
Participant code 956 824

We shall run a NetMeeting & a VNC session in conjunction with this 
call, where the presentation
material will be shared.
For access details consult the message:
(except that the presentation material will be showing up
under  http://ubl.cim3.org/~lcsc/tempMeetingResources/for_2002-04-02_a/
and will be available there by the time of the meeting, for those who 
do not have NetMeeting or VNC
access due to firewalls or other reasons.)

It would be helpful if those using NetMeeting or VNC would connect 5 
minutes prior to the call.
