Popular Questions Weíve Received:

Q. Is EUON about ontologies only?
A. No, itís all semantics - e.g. schema, vocabularies, ontologies and applications in e.g. semantic web. The EUON name is a shorthand. We encourage submissions from all areas of semantics.

Q. I donít know anything about ontologies, is EUON relevant?
A. Absolutely. Part of the remit of EUON is to help share expertise and experience with the community. You donít need to be an expert and we welcome those just beginning to look at semantics from any field of study.

Q. What will registration fee be/does EUON cost to join?
A. No, both are free including lunch (you have to pay your own travel of course so almost a free lunch).

Q. Is EUON only European?
A. This is our primary audience but we encourage anyone interested in collaborating with Europe to come/join too; all are welcome.

Guest Speakers Confirmed

We are pleased to confirm Professor Robert Stevens of University of Manchester and Dr Jean-Pierre Evain of the European Broadcasting Union will give guest talks at the EUON workshop. More details on their chosen topics to follow.
