Call for Bids: TEI-C Members Meeting, 2007 Deadline: June 15, 2006

The TEI-C Annual Members' Meeting takes place every year in October or
November. We are now seeking bids to host this event in 2007.

The meeting this year (2006) will take place in Victoria, British
Columbia, Canada on October 27-28. The previous meetings have been:

Sofia, Bulgaria, October 28-29, 2005, hosted by the Bulgarian Academy of
Sciences Baltimore, USA,
October 22-23, 2004, hosted by Johns Hopkins
University Nancy, France,
November 7-8 2003, hosted by ATILF. Chicago,
October 11-12 2002, hosted by the Newberry Library and Northwestern
University. Pisa, Italy, November 16-17 2001, hosted by the University
of Pisa.

The site of the meeting has typically alternated between Europe and
North America, but that is not a fixed rule. We welcome proposals from
other parts of the world, and in particular from areas where new TEI
communities are arising.

The meeting is a two day event, the first day open to all interested
parties with an eclectic mix of invited and peer-reviewed presentations,
including a poster and demonstration session. The second day is
restricted to TEI members and subscribers only, which includes reports
on the TEI's work and the annual elections for the TEI Board and
Council. Meetings of TEI Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are usually also
scheduled for this day. 2007 will also mark the 20th anniversary of the
TEI, so we would like to include some special events at the meeting to
mark this occasion.

Below is a list of the minimum and ideal requirements to host the annual

Rooms needed
* minimum: one large room for two days to seat entire
meeting group (~75-100 people); four small rooms on the second day for
SIGs (~10 people each); one large open room on second day for
poster/demo session; one small meeting room on the third day for board
meeting (~15 people); space for coffee breaks.
* ideal: one large
room for two days to seat entire meeting group (~75-100 people); six or
more small rooms on the third day for SIGs; one large open room on
second day for poster/demo session which is the same as or near to the
space for coffee breaks

Equipment needed
* minimum: data projector in main room; internet
access in main room; power for a dozen computers in poster session room;
whiteboard or equivalent in smaller meeting rooms
* ideal: the above
plus internet access in poster session room, data projectors and
internet in smaller meeting rooms

Food needed
* Coffee breaks: there should be morning and afternoon
coffee breaks each day, and also coffee available at the start of each
day unless there is coffee available for purchase very nearby * Lunch:
typically lunch is not provided unless no adequate eating options are
available within easy walking distance.
* Reception: there should be
a reception at the end of the first day; it will typically be sponsored
by a vendor or by some other organization who receives publicity in

Funding for the annual meeting usually comes from three sources, the
TEI-C budget (travel, room and board for invited speakers), the local
hosting institution (typically in the donation of space, equipment, and
technical support for the meeting), and from corporate sponsors
(typically for coffee breaks and receptions).

Bids should be sent to info_at_tei-c.org by June 15, 2006, and should
include the following information:

The name of the institution(s) making the bid The name, address, email,
and telephone number of the contact person A brief description of the
facilities available for the event (rooms, equipment, technical support,
food, lodging) A description of what financial support, if any, the
hosting institution is prepared to give (for instance, funding for a
reception, for coffee breaks, for a pre-meeting workshop, for speaker
travel expenses; free meeting rooms and equipment; etc.). Any other
details that may be useful in assessing the bid (e.g. the presence of a
conference on a related topic at the institution around the time of the
meeting; the launch of a new TEI-related initiative at the institution,

All bids will be reviewed by the TEI board, which makes the final

Thank you very much!

Content and Evaluation in Enterprise Workshop, (Submission, June 30), call1

                         - OnToContent 2006 -
       Workshop on Ontology Content and Evaluation in Enterprise
             -With two tracks on eHealth and Human Resources-

*** Proceedings published by Springer LNCS ***
*** Invited Speaker: To be announced ***
*** Submission Deadline: June 30, 2006 ***
*** Topics: Ontology Content, Evaluation, standardization ***
*** Enterprise, eHealth, Human Resources ***
*** http://www.starlab.vub.ac.be/staff/mustafa/OnToContent06 ***
     In conjunction of the International Federated Conferences (OTM '06)
                    3-4 Nov 2006, Montpellier, France

This workshop is organized by the Ontology Outreach Authority OOA
(Knowledge Web NoE). The OOA is devoted to develop strategies for ontology
recommendation and standardization, thereby promoting and providing
outreach for verifiable quality ontological content.

Current trends within the Semantic Web research are mainly concerned with
technological issues, such as language capabilities, inference services,
etc. Yet less attention has been given to ontology content and its
quality.This workshop aims to focus on content issues, such as
methodologies and tools concerned with modeling good ontologies,
approaches to ontology content evaluation, quality measures, ontology
content management (e.g. metadata,libraries, and registration), ontology
documentation, etc. The workshop also aims to give a special attention to
ontology content issues in two industrial sectors: human resources and
employment, and healthcare and life sciences.

We welcome papers and (past/planned) project descriptions that discuss
ontology modeling and evaluation aspects, particularly:
* Research papers presenting theoretical solutions, but with a clear
    illustration on how these solutions can be applied in industry.
* Position papers presenting opinions on some aspect of ontology practice,
    or describing work that is still in progress, but sufficiently mature to
    warrant attention.
* Business experience and case studies specifying requirements,
    challenges, or opportunities of modeling and applying ontologies in

Workshop Structure
The workshop consists of three tracks: Ontology Evaluation, Ontologies in
Human Resources and Employment, and ontologies in Healthcare and life

Methods and tools for ontology evaluation:
        * Ontological evaluation.
        * Logical evaluation.
        * Usability/usefulness evaluation.
        * Ontology compliance to standards.
        * Ontology standardization and recommendation scenarios.
        * Ontology metadata, and libraries.
        * Ontology documentation.
        * Ontology registration and certification.
        * Ontology interoperability.
        * Consensus reaching.
        * Business cases studies.

Ontologies in Human Resources
        * Modeling and representation of: Jobs, CVs, Competencies, Skills,
           Employees, People, Organizations, Social Events, etc.
        * HR upper level concepts.
        * Semantics of HR-XML.
        * Semantic metadata for HR applications.
        * Semantics in job matching.
        * Semantics in learning technologies.
        * Multilinguality in human resources ontologies.
        * Best practice and semantic patterns in ontology modeling and

Ontologies for Healthcare and Life sciences
        * Ontologies in Biomedicine and bioinformatics.
        * Ontologies of diseases, nursing, therapeutics, drug, etc.
        * Upper level concepts of healthcare and life sciences ontologies.
        * Semantic metadata for Clinical Data Interchange.
        * Semantics of medical XML standards and vocabularies.
        * Multilinguality in Biomedicine and bioinformatics ontologies.
        * Best practice and semantic patterns in ontology modeling and
