Ontolog Scheduled Discussion Session: Ontologies and Service Oriented Architecture - Thu 10-Aug-2006     (1)

  • Session Title : "Ontologies and Service Oriented Architecture"     (1B)

Abstract / Goals of the Discussion session     (1C)

To explore what role ontologies and taxonomies play within a service oriented architecture environment. Ontologies and taxonomies can be employed in service oriented environments in numerous ways, through ontologies of domains, for instance health informatics or plastics manufacturing, or taxonomies of services or service categories within domains, so we want to explore how ontologies and taxonomies can improve the availability and performance of services in these roles. 3 guest speakers will each bring a unique perspective on the topic and speak for 10 minutes followed by a quick Q & A. After the final session, a longer group Q & A and discussion will take place among all participants in the session.     (1C1)
