Abstract:     (1D3)
Mark Greaves: In this talk I will review the status of the DARPA's DAML program -- the flagship semantic web R&D program in the United States. DAML-funded researchers were key players in the development of OWL, OWL/S (OWL for Services), and SWRL (Semantic Web Rules Language), and they have created a large library of high-quality open source tools accessible at <>. The DAML program ends this year having exceeded its original goals. I will conclude with a discussion of the requirements for a new semantic web program at DARPA, and an invitation     (1D4)

to the Ontolog community.     (1D5)

  • Session Format: this will be virtual session over a phone conference setting, augmented by shared computer screen support     (1D6)
