Ontology Summit 2021 The Ontological Landscape     (2)

Ontologies are a rich and versatile construct. They can be extracted, learned, modularized, interrelated, transformed, analyzed, and harmonized as well as developed in a formal process. This summit will explore the many kinds of ontologies and how they can be manipulated. The goal is to acquaint both current and potential users of ontologies with the possibilities for how ontologies could be used for solving problems.     (2A)

Agenda     (2B)

  • 12:00 - 12:30 EST     (2B1)
    • Title: Experiences in developing with DOLCE Slides     (2B1A)
    • Abstract: After almost 20 years, the DOLCE ontology (a Descriptive Ontology for Linguistic and Cognitive Engineering) is still one of the most used foundational ontologies. Without describing the ontological distinctions adopted in DOLCE, in this talk I will discuss the main principles that guided its development and share few lessons learned about its role in the fields of Semantic Web and Conceptual Modeling.     (2B1C)
    • Bio: Claudio Masolo is a researcher at the Laboratory for Applied Ontology ( of the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the Italian National Research Council. He got a PhD in Information Engineering under the scope of a co-tutorship program between the Universities of Padova (Italy) and Toulouse (France) in 2000. His main research interests concern the ontological foundation of knowledge engineering and conceptual modeling with a particular focus on qualitative representation of space, time, change, and properties as well as on ontological foundations of cognitive theories. He is one of the main persons under the development of the DOLCE ontology; co-founder and Membership Officer of the International Association of Ontology and its Applications (IAOA); member of the Editorial Board of the Applied Ontology Journal. Participant in several national and European projects he published more than 60 papers in peer-reviewed journals and conferences.     (2B1D)
