*Dear* *LOD Afficianods:*
 *
*
This message is about an effort you may wish to contribute to, or at least
you may be interested in knowing about it.
  *
*
*WHAT: **T*he  NeOn project <http://www.neon-project.org/> is supporting an
effort to collect high quality ontologies.

I invite you to submit one or more "exemplary
ontologies<http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/Odp:WhatIsAnExemplaryOntology>"
to a growing catalog in the Ontology Design Patterns
Wiki<http://www.ontologydesignpatterns.org>.

Identify one or more ontologies that:

   - you have significant knowledge or experience with,
   - you regard as an excellent example of a "high quality" ontology
   See: "What is an Exemplary
Ontology<http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/Odp:WhatIsAnExemplaryOntology>"
for
   ideas about this; edit them if you wish.

Can you or any of your colleagues think of exemplary ontologies to add to
the catalog?

*WHY:  to make it easy for people to find good ontologies to draw
inspiration from and to emulate.*

* If you don't have much time, I will make it easier by talking you through
it on the phone. I'm UscholdM on Skype.*
*
*
*HOW: Quick Instructions:*

   1. Visit *Ontology Design Patterns Wiki*<http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/>
    (http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/)
   2. Click the "*How to
register*<http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/Odp:Register>" link
at
   lower left of the page; follow instructions to get a login name and
   password.
   ---Or paste: http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/Odp:Register into
   your browser
   3. See: "*What is an Exemplary
Ontology*<http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/Odp:WhatIsAnExemplaryOntology>"
   link for some criteria
   ---Or paste: h
   ttp://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/Odp:WhatIsAnExemplaryOntology<http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/Odp:WhatIsAnExemplaryOntology>
into
   your browser
   4. Visit *Exemplary Ontology
Catalogue*<http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/Ontology:Main> page
   to make sure the ontology is not already there.
   ---Or paste: http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/Ontology:Main into
   your browser
   5. Click the *Su**bmit a new Exemplary Ontology* button.
   6. Fill out a form describing various aspects of the exemplary ontology.
    Key fields are:
      1. *Name *of ontology
      2. *Description (Short)*
      3. *Purpose *of the ontology
      4. *Justification *(why you think this is an exemplary ontology)
      5. *URI *of where to find the ontology
      6. *References  *One or more references to learn more.

Submissions should normally be made by champions of the ontology rather than
by the developers. This avoids perceived conflict of interest /
self-promotion.

Thanks very much,
 Michael
