Registration Deadline: Ontology Summit 2010 - Creating the Ontologists of the Future
Free registration is now available for the Symposium that marks the conclusion of our 3-month Ontology Summit 2010 - Creating the Ontologists of the Future. As most of you know, it will be held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, MD, USA on March 15-16, 2010.
The registration page is at http://www.nist.gov/public_affairs/confpage/100315b.htm. Please note that registration closes on March 9th, a policy requirement because NIST is a U.S. Government facility. So please don’t delay in registering – there is no charge for this meeting.
You can find plenty of information about getting to NIST, including nearby hotels, at http://www.nist.gov/public_affairs/visitor/visitor.htm. Many of the hotels offer corporate and association discounts, so be sure to ask. Typical rates are around $150/night.
And of course, you can always keep updated on our ongoing discussions, surveys, and progress, at http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2010. Our Summit surveys, which are a critical piece of collecting input from you, close on Thursday, February 25, 2010 (the day after tomorrow!), so please visit http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2010_Survey if you haven’t already.
We are looking forward to what promises to be another productive and visible Ontology Summit. See you there!
Steven R. Ray and Barry Smith, Co-Chairs, Ontology Summit 2010
