Abstract     (1G)

OntologySummit2011 Theme: "Making the Case for Ontology"     (1G1)

  • Session Title: Pre-symposium preparation and review session     (1G2)

This is our 6th Ontology Summit, a joint initiative by NIST, Ontolog, NCOR, NCBO, IAOA & NCO_NITRD. The theme adopted for this Ontology Summit is: "Making the Case for Ontology."     (1G3)

This year's Ontology Summit seeks to address the 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 that, 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.     (1G4)

In this pre-sympoisum review session today, the symposium co-chair will be presenting the Symposium program and discussing symposium logistics at this session. The Communique team will also be presenting a next draft for discussion. Do note that we want to be tweaking the Communique during this session and through the [ontology-summit] discussion list, and would want to be walking into the symposium with a near-final draft of the Communique.     (1G5)
