    This is the official announcement of the next DARPA Agent Markup
    Language (DAML) Program Principal Investigators (PI) meeting, ratifying
    the dates proposed in Jack Howard's email of 6/7/04. The meeting will be
    held at the Hilton Palacio del Rio in San Antonio, Texas on Tuesday,
    Wednesday, and Thursday (until noon) 30 November - 2 December, 2004.
    There will be no Semantic Web Services Initiative (SWSI) Face-to-Face
    (F2F) meeting associated with this PI Meeting.
    Attendance is open to the DAML and W3C communities, as well as to
    government user organizations. Requests for other attendees should be
    addressed to Cola Atkinson (703-284-1313,, Jack
    Howard (703-516-6021, or me.
    Significant meeting goals are to review program and performer FY04
    progress, and assess the strategy for bringing the DAML program to a
    successful conclusion.  I will provide additional guidance on agenda and
    briefing preparation in another message.  I expect all DAML performers
    in FY04 to reserve sufficient FY04 funds to attend this meeting and
    outbrief your progress.  As I said at May's PI meeting, because of the
    planned tail-off of the overall DAML program budget, only selected
    performers will receive FY05 funding.  I am starting to make those
    decisions now.
    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 and W3C
    communities unless approved by me.

    Technology demonstrations will be conducted the evening of Tuesday, 30
    November.  As always 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.) Also, unless your demonstration is
    completely in OWL, don't expect to present it and don't bother asking
    for a waiver.  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 note that the meeting rooms are located across from the street
    from the hotel in "The Pavilion", but lunches will be served in the
    hotel.  Continental breakfasts and breaks will be served in The
    Please don't hesitate to contact Jack or myself if you have any
    questions or suggestions about the meeting. See you there!
