I haven't been following your emails too closely,
but I think we have a common interest in 
facilitating inter-operability on the Semantic Web.

The mKR language is a general purpose KR language,
with the capability of interfacing to any knowledge base
on the web.
The mKE program which implements it is free,
open source, available for Windows, Linux, Mac.
mKR/mKE is my own "labor of love", developed
over the past 13 years, with no funding.

I would be happy to work with you, and provide
any desired info. re: mKR/mKE.

    I am not sure whether I ll have the time to write another paper before thursday,but If someone is intersted to co-author i would be happy to chip in a few paragraphs

  I think the future semantic web should be open, and this openness should start by making semantic web research more distributed, accessible, transparent, co-manged,   and semantic web research access funds should be distributed and administrated via open access mechanisms.

  was this announcement circulated here before? did I miss it?

  how can people pitch in to make a contribution/interact with inivted keynote speaks?

  anyone interested in putting together some real time paragraphs, I ll be up for it all night if necessary

    >>>Submission deadline: 9th of April, 2009<<<

    3rd STI Roadmapping Workshop
    "Charting the next generation of semantic technology"
    Monday, June 1st 2009 co-located with ESWC 2009
    Aldemar Knossos Village, Heraklion, Crete, Greece

    In the last 15 years the World Wide Web has radically changed how our
    society communicates, connects, does business, shares information and
    performs tasks. It can be expected that another paradigm shift will be seen
    over the next 15 years, in which many terms are already part of the vision:
    cloud, utility, services, mobile, ubiquitous, virtual worlds etc. In the
    semantic technologies community there is the expectation that semantics are
    on the cusp of maturity and wider uptake, and a large body of research work
    demonstrates their relevance to all of the aforementioned areas.
    How will the semantic landscape look like in 15 years from now? What path
    will be taken to get there? This workshop solicits submissions from
    visionaries in the semantic research community as well as early adopter
    industry, addressing the question of what role semantic technologies will
    play in the next developments of the Web.
    Our aim is to bring together experts to chart together the requirements on
    research and necessary steps in education and technology transfer that exist
    to ensure semantics will achieve their full potential for society and
    industry over the next 15 years. In the workshop, visions can be shared and
    discussed, and actions identified which will result in, after the workshop,
    an expert roadmap for semantic technologies. This roadmap is expected to
    form a significant input to future efforts around semantic technology.

    This workshop is an action of the Roadmapping Service of STI International.
    The Roadmapping Service exists to initiate and coordinate the specification
    of research roadmaps for the future research and development of semantic
    technologies. The aim is to provide an integrated plan for future research
    and development activities, which then serves as the basis for coordinating
    cross-project activities as well as for standardization work ensuring
    sustainability and global impact.
    The results of the previous workshop event, looking at semantics through to
    2019, can be found here:

    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 of
    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
    is director of research of K-Now, a spin-off company of the University of
    Sheffield focusing on supporting dynamic distributed communities in large
    organizations. He holds a PhD from the University of East Anglia and a
    doctorship from the University of Torino, Italy

    We expect an one day workshop consisting of:
    - An invited talk from a semantic technologies visionary
    - Presentations of submissions, including sufficient time for discussion.
    Where possible, presentations will be split into sessions grouped around
    specific Web developments (cloud, services, ubiquity, virtual worlds etc.)
    - "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
    (group activity)

    Accepted submissions will be published in a workshop proceedings as well as
    acknowledged in the STI roadmap document and all other publications derived
    from it.

    Submissions are welcomed from any member of the research or professional
    community. They should take the form of a position paper, giving grounded
    reasons for a particular vision of semantic technology use in our future
    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
    than 5 pages LNCS format and be submitted in PDF format.
    Accepted submissions will be presented at the workshop in short
    presentations with sufficient time for questions. All attendees are invited
    to give a 2-3 slide ''stand up'' presentation of their ideas.
    Submissions should be sent to lyndon.nixon@sti2.org

    Submissions - April 09
    Notification of acceptance - April 30
    ''Stand up'' slides to be submitted by May 30
