Ontology Summit 2022     (1)

The Ontology Summit is an annual series of events that involves the ontology community and communities related to each year's theme chosen for the summit. The Ontology Summit was started by Ontolog and NIST, and the program has been co-organized by Ontolog and NIST along with the co-sponsorship of other organizations that are supportive of the Summit goals and objectives.     (1A)

Description     (2)

The theme for the Ontology Summit 2022 will be selected from proposals from the Ontolog Community. Suggestions for themes can be added below:     (2A)

Ontology Summit 2022 Theme and Tracks     (2B)

Theme: Dealing with Disasters     (2B1)

The COVID-19 pandemic as well as other pandemics and disasters have prompted an impressive, worldwide response by governments, industry, and the academic community. Ontologies can play a significant role in search, data description, interoperability and harmonization of the increasingly large data sources that are relevant to disasters such as the COVID-19 pandemic. This summit will examine the role that ontologies can play in disasters. The first track will be an overview of the notion of disaster. The other tracks will examine how the different kinds of disaster are employing ontologies.     (2B2)

  • Track 1: Disaster attributes     (2B4)
    • There are several incompatible definitions for the notion of disaster and for related terminology by national and international agencies.     (2B4A)
    • The information needed for the complex events of predicting, monitoring, mitigating and managing disasters and risks is complex and spans many organizations (both governmental and non-governmental), countries, languages and cultures.     (2B4B)
    • Some examples of disaster attributes include: geo-temporal extent, categories of risks and types of disasters, and sources, such as natural and deliberate.     (2B4C)
  • Track 2: Pandemics     (2B5)
    • Ongoing pandemics include tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and COVID-19.     (2B5A)
  • Track 3: Environment Disasters     (2B6)
    • Examples include climate change, environmental pollution, wildfires, floods and habitat loss.     (2B6A)
  • Track 4: Space Disasters     (2B7)

Purpose     (2C)

As part of Ontolog’s general advocacy to bring ontology science and engineering into the mainstream, we endeavor to abstract a conversational toolkit from the sessions that may facilitate discussion and knowledge sharing amongst stakeholders relevant to the topic. Our findings will be supported with examples from the various domains of interest. The results will be captured in the form of the Ontology Summit 2022 Communiqué, with expanded supporting material provided on the web and in journal articles.     (2C1)

Process and Deliverables     (3)

Similar to our last sixteen summits, this Ontology Summit 2022 will consist of virtual discourse (over our archived mailing lists), virtual presentations and panel sessions at recorded video conference calls.     (3A)

Meetings are at Noon US Eastern Time on Wednesdays.     (3B)
