Our invited spearker session on "Pattern-based Ontology Design" is
almost here. It is scheduled for (tomorrow) Thursday, 5-Feb-2009
starting at 10:30am PST / 1:30pm EST / 7:30pm CET / 18:30 UTC.

Again, speaking on the topic will be Mr. Aldo Gangemi and Dr.
Valentina Presutti from the Semantic Technology Laboratory of the
National Research Council (CNR) in Rome, Italy. For those who are
researching into, or who are professionally engaged in ontology design
or its design process, you probably don't want to miss this session.

Please refer to details on the session page at:

This is a virtual event (in the form of an augmented conference call).
You will only need your phone line and access to the Internet to
