Ontology Summit 2014: April 28 & 29, 2014 Symposium (Face-to-Face Workshop)     (1)

The culmination of Ontology Summit 2014 - a 2-day workshop and symposium event in the Greater Washington, DC Area hosted by NCO_NITRD. The event will be held at the NSF Stafford Place (near the Ballston Station of the DC Metro - Arlington, Virginia) and will support both face-to-face (on-site) and virtual (remote) participation! ... Participation is free of charge.     (1A)

Theme: Ontology Summit 2014: Big Data and Semantic Web Meet Applied Ontology     (1C)

9th in the series of a 3-month annual event by and for the Ontology Community and their collaborators. This Summit is co-organized by Ontolog, NIST, NCOR, NCBO, IAOA & NCO_NITRD     (1C1)

Since the beginnings of the Semantic Web, ontologies have played key roles in the design and deployment of new semantic technologies. Yet over the years, the level of collaboration between the Semantic Web and Applied Ontology communities has been much less than expected. Within Big Data applications, ontologies appear to have had little impact.     (1D1)
This year's Ontology Summit is an opportunity for building bridges between the Semantic Web, Linked Data, Big Data, and Applied Ontology communities. On the one hand, the Semantic Web, Linked Data, and Big Data communities can bring a wide array of real problems (such as performance and scalability challenges and the variety problem in Big Data) and technologies (automated reasoning tools) that can make use of ontologies. On the other hand, the Applied Ontology community can bring a large body of common reusable content (ontologies) and ontological analysis techniques. Identifying and overcoming ontology engineering bottlenecks is critical for all communities.     (1D2)
Ontology Summit 2014 will pose and address the primary challenges in these areas of interaction among the different communities. The Summit activities will bring together insights and methods from these different communities, synthesize new insights, and disseminate knowledge across field boundaries.     (1D3)
In the course of the Symposium, we shall distill the results from this summit's 3.5 months of research, discourse, analysis, synthesis and to present this knowledge in the form of presentations and a broadly distributed communique collective produced by the participants of this OntologySummit.     (1D4)

Session Details     (1D5)

  • Discussions and Q & A:     (1D5F)
    • Nominally, when a presentation is in progress, the moderator will mute everyone, except for the speaker.     (1D5F1)

    • we will usually save all questions and discussions till after all presentations are through. You are encouraged to jot down questions onto the chat-area in the mean time (that way, they get documented; and you might even get some answers in the interim, through the chat.)     (1D5F3)
    • During the Q&A / discussion segment (when everyone is muted), If you want to speak or have questions or remarks to make, please raise your hand (virtually) by clicking on the "hand button" (lower right) on the chat session page. You may speak when acknowledged by the session moderator (again, press "*7" on your phone to un-mute). Test your voice and introduce yourself first before proceeding with your remarks, please. (Please remember to click on the "hand button" again (to lower your hand) and press "*6" on your phone to mute yourself after you are done speaking.)     (1D5F4)
  • For those who cannot join us, or who have further questions or remarks on the summit topic and content, please post them to the [ ontology-summit ] listserv so that everyone in the community can benefit from the discourse.     (1D5G)
  • Please note that this session may be recorded, and if so, the audio/video archive is expected to be made available as open content, along with the proceedings of the call to our community membership and the public at-large under our prevailing open IPR policy.     (1D5J)
