*Will Web 3.0 Finally Give Developers a Real Model Driven Architecture

In this interactive panel discussion we will explore how the Semantic
Web family of standards is quietly empowering the decades-old MDA
(Model Driven Architecture) community. Despite 20+ years of promises
from the software community, the original vision of CASE (Computer
Aided Software Engineering) seems just as elusive as ever. However,
recent activities in the past 18 months at the OMG (Object Management
Group) indicate that another watershed moment for MDA is upon us. So,
the question remains, can the Semantic Web and Web 3.0 technology like
OWL (Web Ontology Language) and RDF (Resource Description Framework)
substantially improve the ways we conceptualize, design, code, and
generate enterprise software?

Our two expert guests will address these and other questions during
the evening of July 30th at the SDForum Semantic Web SIG. We have the
pleasure of hearing from Dr. Deborah McGuinness, who Chairs the
Knowledge Systems Laboratory at Stanford and Elisa Kendal, the
President and CEO of Sandpiper Software  which is one of the
principal contributors to the OMG's specification for the Ontology
Definition Metamodel, along with IBM, Adaptive Software and others.
