Events at OMG related to using UML as an OWL presentation syntax

Here is just a brief FYI for those who may be interested in 
the activities at the Object Management Group (OMG) which 
relate to OWL.  

A new draft of a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a UML Profile for Web
Ontology Definition has been uploaded to the OMG server [1].  The
title is a bit misleading as this is now asking for a MOF metamodel
for ontology development with a mapping to UML and a binding to OWL.
This is a bit more general than the original RFP, but it will still
provide for translation from UML to OWL, and for using UML/MOF tools in
Ontology definition (i.e. for a UML presentation syntax for OWL).

The group working on this has become a Platform Special Interest Group
(PSIG) of the OMG.  This is an 'upgrade' since my last report on OMG
ontology activities to webont.  The minutes of the first meeting of
the PSIG can be found at [2].  A mail list exists for this group
which is open to anyone wishing to join it.  Just send an email to
request@omg.org asking to be added to ontology@omg.org.  These requests
are processed by a human and not a listserver system.
