On behalf of the Ontolog Forum, the National Center for Ontological
Research, and NIST, I would like to invite you to participate in this
year's Ontology Summit face-to-face workshop, which is scheduled for
April 28-29, 2008, as part of NIST's annual "Interoperability Week"
dedicated to a spectrum of issues surrounding effective exchange of
information. 

 

The theme of the 2008 Ontology Summit this year is the vision of an
Open Ontology Repository. This vision forms the basis of the Open
Ontology Repository community, and this year's summit will support
their effort to produce such a repository (or set of repositories) by
serving as a venue - both virtual and face-to-face - in which many of
the issues relating to the design, implementation, and ongoing use of
an ontology repository can be discussed and ultimately resolved. In
particular, these issues will include the themes of the 2006 and 2007
Ontology Summits (Upper Ontologies, and a framework for classification
of ontologies, respectively), and this year's summit will thus also
provide an opportunity to revisit the conclusions reached at those two
prior meetings.

 

Because NIST is a government facility, pre-registration for the
physical meeting is required. Please visit
http://www.mel.nist.gov/div826/msid/sima/interopweek/meetings.htm
before April 21st to register. There is no registration fee.

 

We have already begun addressing the issues through an on-line
discussion, which you can catch up with at
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2008. The
workshop on April 28th is simply the culmination of this process, so
please jump in right away.
