    You are invited to participate in the sixth international Open Forum on
    Metadata Registries. It will be held January 20-24, 2003 in Santa Fe, New
    Mexico, USA.

    Please see the call for participation at:

    This is a preliminary announcement. The web site contains draft material
    being developed by the organizing committee. It will be updated as speakers
    are confirmed. Please check for updates. Participants will explore the
    capabilities, uses, content, development, and operation of registries and
    related technologies. Emphasis is on managing the semantics (meaning) of
    data that is shared within and between organizations or disseminated via
    the World Wide Web.

    This Open Forum will concentrate on the following technologies: ISO/IEC
    11179 Metadata Registries, Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration
    (UDDI), XML Registries/Repositories, Database Catalogs (e.g., relational
    DBMS/SQL), CASE Tool Repositories, Software Component Registries,
    Terminology and Ontological Registries, and Dublin Core Registries.
    Tutorials will be given on these technologies and on the relevant standards.

    A theme will be cooperation and interoperation of these technologies. The
    practical use of the technologies will be described and demonstrated in
    "tracks". The tracks are:
    * Standards, Technologies, and Tutorials;
    * Bioinformatics & Genomics;
    * Defense; Electronic Business; Environment (including Biology and Natural
    Resource Management);
    * Healthcare;
    * Knowledge Management & Learning Technology;
    * Statistics;
    * Terminology and Ontologies;
    * Transportation, Aviation, and Aerospace.

    The tracks will gather standards developers, software developers, and
    practitioners in these fields to demonstrate accomplishments and to discuss
    experiences. Please mark your calendars and register to attend.
