Dear Colleagues,


You are cordially invited to participate at the ongoing Ontology
Summit 2013. Our theme for the Summit this year is: "Ontology
Evaluation Across the Ontology Lifecycle." Coming up next Thursday
(Apr-4) is our 12th virtual panel session, when we will, again, do a
synthesis of what has transpired so far, and attempt to consolidate
the insights into a communique. ... RSVP (details below)!

***Attention:*** Please take special note on the start time of the
event, as the US, the EU and some regions are on daylight saving
(summer) time on this day (the EU just changed last weekend), while
there are other regions that stay on Standard Time all year round!

Abstract:

This is our 8th Ontology Summit, a joint initiative by NIST, Ontolog,
NCOR, NCBO, IAOA & NCO_NITRD with the support of our co-sponsors. The
theme adopted for this Ontology Summit is: "Ontology Evaluation Across
the Ontology Lifecycle."

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.

During this OntologySummit, we seek 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 Communique.

We have now completed the virtual sessions of the Summit that were
dedicated to presentations of technical content.Each of the four
tracks have hosted very exciting presentations that address the key
Summit themes -- Intrinsic Aspects of Ontology Evaluation, Extrinsic
Aspects of Ontology Evaluation, Building Ontologies to Meet Evaluation
Criteria, and Software Environments for Evaluating Ontologies.

In today's session, we will focus on revisiting the synthesis of all
of these ideas as input into the initial draft of the Summit
Communique.

The Synthesis II session will be framed by the Communique outline.
Track champions will provide discussion questions that represent the
points of synthesis they need to address but feel that they don't have
enough input to synthesize.


******************

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 pass this invitation along to
colleagues 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
discourse.

These sessions will be recorded and made available in a publicly
accessible archive. Therefore, before participating, please make sure
you are cognizant of our IPR policy (ref:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?WikiHomePage#nid32).
