OntologySummit Pre-Launch Planning Session II     (2)

Session Chair: Kenneth Baclawski (IAOA; Northeastern University)     (2A)

Topic: Pre-Launch Planning Session II for OntologySummit2017     (2B)

Abstract     (5)

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.     (5A)

Agenda     (6)

1. Ontology Summit 2017 Topic Suggestion #1: Foundational Ontologies     (6A)

  This is related to the first summit theme in 2006 (The Upper
  Ontology Summit) and so would be revisiting this topic.  However,
  much has happened since that first summit, so it might be worthwhile
  to have another one on the theme.

Suggestion #2: The discipline of Ontological Engineering - Best Practices     (6B)

  This was suggested in an earlier summit brainstorming session.  It
  has some similarity to the summit theme in 2010 "Creating the
  Ontologists of the Future".  Other summits included best practices
  within some of the tracks.

Suggestion #3: Domain Overlap and Vocabularies     (6C)

  This is a theme that would extend the recent series on Domain
  Vocabularies.  It would be concerned with techniques for building
  and extending domain vocabularies.

Suggestion #4: AI/Hybrid Learning and Ontologies     (6D)

  For example, hybrid systems that use machine learning systems to
  ingest data, combined with logic-based system that do the reasoning.

Suggestion #5: Domain Models and Vocabularies     (6E)

  Variation on Suggestion #3.  It would extend the recent series on
  Domain Vocabularies in a different direction.

Suggestion #6: Reasoning with Ontologies     (6F)

  This was suggested in an earlier summit brainstorming session.

Suggestion #7: Ontological Architectures     (6G)

  This might be merged with Suggestion #1 on foundational ontologies
  as well as with the suggestions related to domain vocabularies.  The
  various suggestions would then be tracks in the merged theme.

Suggestion #8: Using ontologies to evaluate standards     (6H)

  Another suggestion related to standards is the question "What can
  you do with an ontological representation of a standard that is
  impossible or inconvenient in other representations?"

Suggestion #9: Textbook for applied ontology     (6I)

  This was suggested in an earlier summit brainstorming session.

Suggestion #10: Retrospective on previous summits - where are we now?     (6J)

  This was suggested in an earlier summit brainstorming session.


2. Tracks     (6K)

Suggestion: Examine the issue of the lack of agreement on terminology in the health disciplines and how it might be tackled. This is one of the serious concerns of the NIH BD2K (Big Data 2 Knowledge) program.     (6L)

3. General     (6M)

Suggestion: It might be useful for each session to be tagged with the expected level, such as Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, or possibly with some prerequisites.     (6N)

5. Next Meeting     (6P)
