Meet Applied Ontology," that started with the launch of the Season
back in Jan-16.

Please note that Registration for the Symposium is closing in two
days; therefore if you haven't already done that, please look over the
program - see: http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2014_Symposium

********************* Details ************************

This is our 9th Ontology Summit, an annual joint initiative by NIST,
Ontolog, NCOR, NCBO, IAOA & NCO_NITRD with the support of our
co-sponsors. The theme adopted for this Ontology Summit is: "Big Data
and Semantic Web Meet Applied Ontology."

Since the beginnings of the Semantic Web, ontologies have played key
roles in the design and deployment of new semantic technologies. Yet
over the years, the level of collaboration between the Semantic Web
and Applied Ontology communities has been much less than expected.
Within Big Data applications, ontologies appear to have had little
impact.

This year's Ontology Summit is an opportunity for building bridges
between the Semantic Web, Linked Data, Big Data, and Applied Ontology
communities. On the one hand, the Semantic Web, Linked Data, and Big
Data communities can bring a wide array of real problems (such as
performance and scalability challenges and the variety problem in Big
Data) and technologies (automated reasoning tools) that can make use
of ontologies. On the other hand, the Applied Ontology community can
bring a large body of common reusable content (ontologies) and
ontological analysis techniques. Identifying and overcoming ontology
engineering bottlenecks is critical for all communities.

OntologySummit2014 will pose and address the primary challenges in
these areas of interaction among the different communities. The Summit
activities will bring together insights and methods from these
different communities, synthesize new insights, and disseminate
knowledge across field boundaries.

Following earlier Ontology Summit practice, the synthesized results of
this season's discourse will be published as a Communique.

of your who may also find these sessions to be of interest to come
join us.

*RSVP* by emailing Peter Yim at <peter.yim@cim3.com> offline (or add
yourself directly to the session page if you are already an Ontolog or
Ontology Summit community member) so that we can prepare enough
resources to support everyone. [Please state clearly the date of the
session you are registering for in your email.] ... All respondents
will be subscribed (if they aren't already so) to the
[ontology-summit] mailing list so they are participate in the virtual
discourse.

These sessions will be recorded and made available in a publicly
accessible archive. Therefore, before participating, please make sure
