Ontology Summit 2013: Ontology Evaluation Across the Ontology Lifecycle     (2)

8th in the series of a 3-month open annual event, by and for the Ontology Community. This Summit is co-organized by Ontolog, NIST, NCOR, NCBO, IAOA & NCO_NITRD     (2A)

see: OntologySummit2013_Communique, our Website, and OntologySummit     (2B)

What's New     (2J)

{{{ ... [ Full proceedings for the session below are available online; just click on the respective ConferenceCall_{date}_ session page, and look under the "Archives" section ] ... }}}     (2J7)

  • The OntologySummit2013_Hackathon_Clinics Program will be taking place over the three Saturdays, 30-Mar-2013, 6-Apr-2013 & 13-Apr-2013 - Seven (7) projects are being featured - Participants can join us for the whole day's activities, and observers might be interested to dial into each project's "open webcast segment" of their workday - see access details under the Hackathon-Clinics Master Calendar     (2J13)

Ontology Summit 2013 Focus     (2K)

Theme: "Ontology Evaluation Across the Ontology Lifecycle"     (2K1)

Description, Goals & Objectives     (2L)

Currently, there is no agreed methodology for development of ontologies, and there are no universally agreed metrics for ontology evaluation. At the same time, everybody agrees that there are a lot of badly engineered ontologies out there, thus people use -- at least implicitly -- some criteria for the evaluation of ontologies.     (2L1)

The goal for Ontology Summit 2013 is to identify best practices for ontology development and evaluation. We will consider the entire lifecycle of an ontology -- from requirements gathering and analysis, through to design and implementation. In this endeavor, the Summit will seek collaboration with the software engineering and knowledge acquisition communities. Research in these fields has led to several mature models for the software lifecycle and the design of knowledge-based systems, and we expect that fruitful interaction among all participants will lead to a consensus for a methodology within ontological engineering. Following earlier Ontology Summit practice, the synthesized results of this season's discourse will be published as a Communiqu��.     (2L2)

Process & Deliverables     (2M)

Similar to our last 7 summits, this Ontology Summit will comprise of three-and-a-half (3.5) months of virtual discourse (over our archived mailing lists) and virtual panel sessions (over augmented conference calls), and culminate in a 2-day face-to-face workshop/symposium held on May 2~3, 2013 (Thu & Fri) at NIST (Gaithersburg, Maryland, US) during which we, among other things, present our distilled thoughts in a collaboratively developed communique.

      • a combination like {aaaaa-bbbbb} (where "aaaaa" could be "extrinsic-aspects", etc.)     (2N2H1I)
      • no prefix, if they don't belong to any discussion track     (2N2H1J)
    • Discussion that are not focused on the theme of this summit (but is ontology-related) should be deferred to the [ ontolog-forum ] mailing list     (2N2H2)
