You are invited to join us this Thursday at the OntologySummit2012
virtual panel session-11, where our Tracks-1&2 co-champions will
synthesize on what has transpired in the discourse around the issues
covered by their track. In this session, we shall be focusing our
discussion on two topics:
* 1. have a discussion on system components ... and,
* 2. have a discussion on the requirements for engineering modelling
languages, and the shortcomings of what is available the topic of
"Meeting Big Data Challenges through Ontology."
Please pay special attention to the start-time of this session for
your own location. Timing for these couple of weeks is fairly tricky
(especially for non-US participants) - as North America has gone into
daylight saving time, Europe hasn't, and a lot of Asian countries
don't do daylight saving at all!

********************* Details ************************
This is our 7th Ontology Summit, a joint initiative by ONTOLOG, NIST,
NCOR, NCBO, IAOA & NCO_NITRD with the support of our co-sponsors. The
theme adopted for this Ontology Summit is: "Ontology for Big Systems."
The principal goal of the summit is to bring together and foster
collaboration between the ontology community, systems community, and
stakeholders of some of "big systems." Together, the summit
participants will exchange ideas on how ontological analysis and
ontology engineering might make a difference, when applied in these
"big systems." We will aim towards producing a series of
recommendations describing how ontologies can create an impact; as
well as providing illustrations where these techniques have been, or
could be, applied in domains such as bioinformatics, electronic health
records, intelligence, the smart electrical grid, manufacturing and
supply chains, earth and environmental, e-science, cyberphysical
systems and e-government. As is traditional with the Ontology Summit
series, the results will be captured in the form of a communique, with
expanded supporting material provided on the web.
The general format of the Ontology Summit comprises of a series of
both virtual and face-to-face activities that span about 3 months
(January through March or April each year). These activities include a
vigorous three-month online discourse on the theme of the Summit,
virtual panel discussions, research activities, and so on, which will
culminate in a two-day face-to-face workshop and symposium at NIST in
Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA on April 12 & 13, 2012. Each year, we
collaboratively author and publish a Summit Communique to offer a
message from the Summit participants to the world-at-large as a
signature activity of the Ontology Summit series.
These sessions, like all Ontolog virtual events, are open and free of
charge. Anyone who is interested, or (better still) who may have
something to contribute, is welcome. Please refer to event details on
the session pages, to which the hyperlink is given above, where you
will find session agenda, conference call dial-in, slides and other
pertinent information. Feel free to forward this invitation along to
colleagues (or your own community mailing lists) who may also find
these sessions to be of interest.
*RSVP* by emailing Peter Yim at <peter.yim at cim3.com> offline (or add
yourself directly to the session page if you are already an Ontolog or
Ontology Summit community member) so that we can prepare enough
resources to support everyone. [Please state clearly the date of the
session you are registering for in your email.] ... All respondents
will be subscribed (if they aren't already so) to the
[ontology-summit] mailing list so they are participate in the virtual

p.s. Note that the registration for the April 12 & 13
OntologySummit2012 Workshop & Symposium at NIST (Gaithersburg,
Maryland, USA) is now open. Participation is free of charge, but
registration is mandatory (especially for onsite attendees, as the
venue is a government facility.) Please register and make your travel
