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."

In this 3rd virtual panel session of the Summit, we focus on theory
and practice for intrinsic aspects of ontology evaluation. Our
speakers will present a number of approaches and frameworks for
evaluating the quality of ontologies, and some theoretical discussion
of what constitutes intrinsic evaluation. Our main goal in this
virtual session is to begin to lay out the criteria for intrinsic
evaluation of ontologies, some possible metrics, and the rationale for
these. We hope that all of the participants in the open discussion and
chat will join us in helping to flesh out intrinsic evaluation
criteria and their dimensions.


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

yourself directly to the session page if you are already an Ontolog or
Ontology Summit community member) so that we can prepare enough
