Dick, thanks
I have been looking at the Mkr but I dont understand it, probably for
different reasons from Pat H
However I am intersted

In looking for common grounds, we may have to separate our own individual
(I mean, we all have a purpose right?)

Mkr is your own work, what can we do collectively that would help us create
a more cooperative research and development environment?

>> This year we expect an one day workshop consisting of:
>> *******************
>> An invited talk from Prof. Dr. Fabio Ciravegna, University of Sheffield,
>> UK
>> *******************
>> ''Six Impossible Things''
>> In this talk I will try to look into the future of SemanticTechnologies in
>> 15 years time. I will start by looking at how the past generations have
>> looked at the possible present and discuss where they were right and they
>> were wrong. Then I will present my vision for the next 5, 10 and 15 years

>> semantic technologies, discussing scenarios and requirements.
>> *******************
>> Curriculum Vitae
>> Fabio is Full Professor of Language and Knowledge Technologies at the
>> University of Sheffield where He coordinates the Organisations,
>> Information
>> and Knowledge (OAK) Group. His research field concerns methodologies and
>> technologies for the Intelligent and Semantic Web, with focus on Knowledge
>> Management applications. He is Director of the integrated project IST
>> X-Media, and principal investigator in the EU IPs WeKnowIt and
>> SmartProducts. He isprincipal investigator in the project IPAS-XWB funded
>> by
>> Rolls-Royce plc. He is also principal investigator in the ERC-funded
>> project
>> Archaeotools about analysing 1m documents from the grey literature. In the
>> past he was director of the EU project Dot.Kom
>> (http://nlp.shef.ac.uk/dot.kom/) and co-investigator in the EPSRC IRC AKT
>> project (www.aktors.org) He has considerable engagement with industry and
>> user communities with projects funded by Rolls Royce, Kodak Eastman,
>> Lycos,
>> and the Environment Agency.
>> He is part of the editorial board of the International Journal on ''Web
>> Semantics'' and of the International Journal of Human Computer Studies. He

>> We expect an one day workshop consisting of:

>> - "Stand-up" session for all other submittees/attendees of a short 2-3
>> slide
>> presentation of an idea or vision. These are not refereed.
>> - Interactive session charting the next 15 years of semantic technology

>> Accepted submissions will be published in a workshop proceedings as well

>> Submissions are welcomed from any member of the research or professional
>> community. They should take the form of a position paper, giving grounded

>> society and identifying research challenges that must be met, educational
>> needs that must be covered and technology transfer that must take place
>> before this vision can become reality. Position papers should be no more

>> Accepted submissions will be presented at the workshop in short
