Dealing with Disasters     (2A)

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. The Ontology Summit 2022 examined the overall landscape of disasters and related ontologies. A framework consisting of a set of dimensions was developed to characterize this landscape. The framework was applied to health-related disasters, environmental disasters, as well as aerospace and cyberspace disasters. It was found that there are many cross-domain linkages between different kinds of disasters and that ontologies developed for one kind of disaster can be repurposed for other kinds. A representative sample of projects that have been developing and using ontologies for disaster monitoring and response management is presented to illustrate best practices and lessons learned. The Communiqué ends by presenting the findings and recommendations of the summit.     (2B)

Agenda     (2C)

Ontology Summit 2022 Theme and Tracks     (2D)

Theme: Dealing with Disasters     (2D1)

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.     (2D2)

  • Track 1: Disaster attributes     (2D4)
    • There are several incompatible definitions for the notion of disaster and for related terminology by national and international agencies.     (2D4A)
    • 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.     (2D4B)
    • Some examples of disaster attributes include: geo-temporal extent, categories of risks and types of disasters, and sources, such as natural and deliberate.     (2D4C)
  • Track 2: Pandemics     (2D5)
    • Ongoing pandemics include tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and COVID-19.     (2D5A)
  • Track 3: Environment Disasters     (2D6)
    • Examples include climate change, environmental pollution, wildfires, floods and habitat loss.     (2D6A)
  • Track 4: Space Disasters     (2D7)
