The University at Buffalo is pleased to announce two on-line tutorials in
ontology:

*I. Introduction to Protégé for absolute beginners*
Saturday and Sunday, August 11-12, 2012.
*Faculty*: Ron Rudnicki (CUBRC, Buffalo), Alan Ruttenberg (University at
Buffalo), Barry Smith (University at Buffalo)

This course will provide an introduction to the Protégé 4.2 ontology
editor. It will begin with a brief introduction to ontology building, and
to the use and importance of ontologies. This will be followed by an
introduction to the Web Ontology Language (OWL). The bulk of the course
will consist of an interactive introduction to the use of Protégé in
building an ontology. No background in the use of computer languages and
programming is presupposed. All sessions will be highly interactive.

.

*2. Basic Formal Ontology 2.0*
Saturday and Sunday, August 18-19, 2012
*Faculty*: Alan Ruttenberg and Barry Smith (University at Buffalo)


Basic Formal Ontology is currently being used by over 100 ontology-based
research projects in biomedical informatics and increasingly in other
fields. The tutorial will provide an introduction to the content and use of
BFO in ontology development. Participants will acquire knowledge of the
ontology and of its use as top-level ontology in multiple ontology
development projects in a variety of fields. They will learn about the most
recent developments in the new version 2.0 of the BFO ontology, including
new formalizations of BFO in first-order logic and in OWL.
