The proceedings of the Padova workshop (which ONLY appeared as LADSEB-CNR
Int. Rep) are now out of stock. A selection of these papers (in a completely
revised form) was planned to appear in a Kluwer book, edited by me and
Roberto Poli; unfortunately there has been a misunderstanding with Kluwer on
this respect, and we have been now forced to contact another publisher. We
are of course quite sorry for this inconvenience, and we are doing our best
to get the book published very soon.

We have just put up a WWW site, in a very preliminary form. Look at

to learn more about the AI & Robotics Group at LADSEB and to access to our
publications on Ontological Foundations of Knowledge Representation. Other
related publications developed in the framework of our National Project on
Ontological and Linguistic Tools for Conceptual Modelling will be available
on the Web very soon.
