Objective & Plan     (1B)

Title: Emerging Ontology Showcase     (1B1)

Format: a 4-month mini-series comprising Talks, Panel Discussions and Online Discourse.     (1B2)

The number of publicly available ontologies is growing rapidly, with search engines reporting over 10,000 already. This mini-series is intended to provide a venue for the developers of major new ontologies to present their work products to the ontology community. Each session will showcase 2 or 3 important ontologies that were recently released or updated.     (1B2A)

The following are the criteria for inclusion in the showcase:     (1B2B)

  • Each ontology should be either a new ontology or a major new release of an existing ontology, where "new" means in the last 6 months.     (1B2C)
  • The emphasis is on the ontology rather than on the instance data (TBox rather than ABox in DL terminology) or on tools or websites that make use of the ontology.     (1B2D)
  • Ontologies that are getting close to standardization are especially welcome.     (1B2E)
