Ontology Summit 2018

The OntologySummit is an annual series of events that involves the ontology community and communities related to each year's theme chosen for the summit. The Ontology Summit was started by Ontolog and NIST, and the program has been co-organized by Ontolog, NIST, NCOR, NCBO, IAOA, NCO_NITRD along with the co-sponsorship of other organizations that are supportive of the Summit goals and objectives.


The theme of this year's summit has not yet been decided. The proposed themes are at the Blog for the Ontology Summit 2018 Themes

As part of Ontolog’s general advocacy to bring ontology science and engineering into the mainstream, we endeavor to abstract a conversational toolkit from the sessions that may facilitate discussion and knowledge sharing amongst stakeholders relevant to the topic. Our findings will be supported with examples from the various domains of interest. The results will be captured in the form of a 2018 Summit Communiqué, with expanded supporting material provided on the web.

Process and Deliverables

Similar to our last twelve summits, this Ontology Summit will consist of three months of virtual discourse (over our archived mailing lists) and virtual panel sessions (over augmented conference calls), and may culminate in a 2-day face-to-face workshop/symposium, during which we, among other things, present our distilled thoughts in a collaboratively developed Communiqué.
