    Subject: DAML Principal Investigators Meeting - Official Announcement
    This is the official announcement of the next DARPA Agent Markup Language
    (DAML) Program Principal Investigators (PI) meeting. It will be held at the
    South Seas Resort on Captiva Island, FL from Thursday through Saturday,
    16-18 October, 2003.  These dates were chosen to minimize the total travel
    "away" times for those attending the DAML PI meeting as well as the OntoWeb
    5 meeting and/or the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC).  OntoWeb
    5 and the ISWC are being held 17-18 October and 20-23 October, respectively
    on Sanibel Island.  Sanibel Island is immediately adjacent to Captiva
    Island.  There will be a joint DAML and OntoWeb meeting on the afternoon of
    Friday, 17 October at the OntoWeb meeting site (the Sundial Resort) on
    Sanibel Island.
    Please note that the South Seas Resort covers a large part of Captiva
    Island.  Our guest rooms are about 1.5 miles from the conference meeting
    rooms; however, shuttle service between the guest rooms and meeting rooms
    will be provided.  Also, shuttle service will be provided for DAML
    participants for the joint OntoWeb/DAML meeting.
    Attendance is open to the DAML, Rapid Knowledge Formation (RKF), and W3C
    communities, as well as to prospective government user organizations.
    Requests for other attendees should be addressed to Cola Atkinson
    (703-284-1313,, or me.
    Significant meeting goals are to assess program progress to date, lay out
    the strategy for bringing the DAML program to a successful conclusion, and
    help me come up with a structure and set of goals for a potential follow-on
    program to DAML.  I will provide additional guidance on briefing preparation
    in another message. 
    A web site providing additional information and on-line registration is
    available at the URL below. The site is password protected. Please do not
    distribute the password information outside the DAML, RKF and W3C
    communities unless approved by me.

    An agenda is being developed and as soon as it is available it will be
    posted on the site and a notification will be sent. 
    Technology demonstrations will be conducted the evening of Thursday, 16
    October.  Demonstrations are encouraged, however, only new demonstrations
    and those demonstrations from the previous PI meeting which have shown
    significant progress should be presented. (That is, if your demo has not
    changed significantly from the last meeting, please do not demo it at this
    meeting.)  Please contact Jack Howard with your requirements (number of
    tables, easels, internet connectivity, etc.) for your demonstration. A
    wireless LAN with internet connectivity will be available for the general
    sessions and for the demonstrations, however, each attendee should bring
    his/her own wireless LAN card (802.11b compatible). 
    Please don't hesitate to contact Jack or myself if you have any questions or
    suggestions about the meeting.  See you in October!
