Ontology Summit 2011: April 18~19, 2011 Symposium (Face-to-Face Workshop)     (1)

Theme: Ontology Summit 2011: Making the Case for Ontology     (1B)

6th in the series of a 3-month annual event by and for the Ontology Community. This Summit is co-organized by Ontolog, NIST, NCOR, NCBO, IAOA & NCO_NITRD     (1B1)

While the field of ontology, in the information science sense, has blossomed since the late 1980s, the use of ontology in commercial applications still has not been fully exploited, much less recognized by the mainstream technical community. Many in the ontology community are asked for good examples where using an ontology brings clear benefits to addressing a commercial need - indeed the quest continues for the "killer app" for ontology.     (1C1)
This year's Ontology Summit seeks to address this need to provide concrete evidence of successful deployment of ontologies by examining several application domains for such examples, and in better articulating where different "strengths" of ontological representation are best applied. To support these concrete examples, the summit also aims to classify the categories of applications where ontology has been, and could be, successfully applied; to identify distinct types of metrics that might be used in evaluating the return on investment in an ontology application (cost, capability, performance, etc.); to lay out some strategies for articulating a case for ontological applications; and to identify remaining challenges and roadblocks to a wider deployment of such applications that represent promising application areas and research challenges for the future. The findings of the summit will be documented in the form of a communiqu�� intended for public consumption, which we will finalize during this 2-day workshop/symposium.     (1C2)
In the course of the Symposium, we shall summarize the learnings of the 3 months' research, discourse, analysis, synthesis and to disseminate this knowledge in the form of a broadly distributed communiqu�� collective produced by the participants of this Summit.     (1C3)
