  • Thursday, 07-Feb-2008 - The Joint NIST-Ontolog-NCOR OntologySummit2008, entitled: "Toward An Open Ontology Repository" was officially launched, at this virtual event chaired by Dr. Steven Ray (NIST). Please refer to details on the session page, at: ConferenceCall_2008_02_07 ... Audio archives of the session is now available!        (1B10)

Objective     (1C)

Theme: "Toward an Open Ontology Repository"     (1C1)

Description, Goals & Objectives:     (1C1A)

The theme of the 2008 Ontology Summit is the vision of an Open Ontology Repository. This vision forms the basis of the international Open Ontology Repository community, and this year's summit will support the effort to produce such a repository (or set of repositories) by serving as a venue - both virtual and face-to-face - in which many of the issues relating to the design, implementation, and ongoing use of an ontology repository can be discussed and ultimately resolved. In particular, these issues will include the themes of the 2006 and 2007 Ontology Summits (Upper Ontologies, and a framework for classification of ontologies, respectively), and this year's summit will thus also provide an opportunity to revisit the conclusions reached at those two prior meetings.     (1C1B)
