Brainstorming Session     (2)

Ontology Summit 2022 Theme and Tracks     (2A)

Theme: Dealing with Disasters     (2A1)

The COVID-19 pandemic as well as other pandemics and disasters have prompted an impressive, worldwide response by governments, industry, and the academic community. Ontologies can play a significant role in search, data description, interoperability and harmonization of the increasingly large data sources that are relevant to disasters such as the COVID-19 pandemic. This summit will examine the role that ontologies can play in disasters. The first track will be an overview of the notion of disaster. The other tracks will examine how the different kinds of disaster are employing ontologies.     (2A2)

  • Track 1: Disaster attributes     (2A4)
    • There are several incompatible definitions for the notion of disaster and for related terminology by national and international agencies.     (2A4A)
    • The information needed for the complex events of predicting, monitoring, mitigating and managing disasters and risks is complex and spans many organizations (both governmental and non-governmental), countries, languages and cultures.     (2A4B)
    • Some examples of disaster attributes include: geo-temporal extent, categories of risks and types of disasters, and sources, such as natural and deliberate.     (2A4C)
  • Track 2: Pandemics     (2A5)
    • Ongoing pandemics include tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and COVID-19.     (2A5A)
  • Track 3: Environment Disasters     (2A6)
    • Examples include climate change, environmental pollution, wildfires, floods and habitat loss.     (2A6A)
  • Track 4: Space Disasters     (2A7)
