OntologySummit2013: Virtual Panel Session-04 - Thu 2013-02-07

Summit Theme: "Ontology Evaluation Across the Ontology Lifecycle"

Summit Track Title: Track-C: Building Ontologies to Meet Evaluation Criteria

Session Topic: Ontology Development Methodologies for Delivering
Quality - Integrating Ontologies

Session Co-chairs: Dr. Matthew West (Information Junction) & Mr. Mike
Bennett (EDM Council; Hypercube)

Panelists / Briefings:

* Professor BarrySmith (University at Buffalo, US) - "Ontological
realism as a strategy for integrating ontologies"

* Mr. ChrisPartridge (BORO Solutions, UK) - "Ontology Architecture -
Top Ontology Architecture"

* Mr. AnatolyLevenchuk (TechInvestLab, RU) - "ISO 15926 Reference Data

Considerations for an Industry Standard Ontology"


This is a part of our 8th 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
Evaluation Across the Ontology Lifecycle."

Focusing on what Track-C: "Building Ontologies to Meet Evaluation
Criteria" addresses, one way to look at it is that Ontologies broadly
come in two types:

* 1. Those developed for integrating data from various sources.
* 2. Those developed to support reasoning applications.

We will be having one session devoted to each of these types, to try
to identify what is important for them separately, and then to compare
and see what the differences and similarities are for methodologies of
these two types on the email exploder. {nid 3M52}

In this 4th panel session of the Summit, and the first Track-C
session, we will look at methodologies for developing integrating
ontologies and will aim to identify the range of things a methodology
needs to address in order for it to continue to develop consistently
when there are potentially a large and distributed number of people
involved in its development.


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

colleagues who may also find these sessions to be of interest.

*RSVP* by emailing Peter Yim at <peter.yim at> 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
