This message is about an effort you may wish to know about and hopefully
*WHAT: **T*he NeOn project <http://www.neon-project.org/> is supporting an
effort to collect high quality ontologies.
I invite you to submit one or more "exemplary

ideas about this; edit them if you wish.
Can you or any of your colleagues think of exemplary ontologies to add to
the catalog? Think first about the ontologies you have used that are
