Dear Colleagues,    (02)

You are cordially invited to participate at the ongoing Ontology
Summit 2013. Our theme for the Summit this year is: "Ontology
Evaluation Across the Ontology Lifecycle." Coming up next Thursday
(Apr-11) is our 13th virtual panel session, when our Communique
Co-Lead Editors will be presenting their plans for this year's
communique; take us through a first draft of it, section-by-section,
and ask for comments. ... RSVP (details below)!    (03)

***Attention:*** Please note that the plan for this year is that there
will no longer be any review and wordsmithing of the Communique during
the (face-to-face) Symposium. All reviews and discussions are expected
to be done between the two virtual sessions (this week and next.)    (04)

... as such, the entire Ontology Summit community is expected at this
session. Therefore, please be there, especially if you want to
influence what gets captured into the Communique this year!    (05)

OntologySummit2013: Panel Session-13 - Thu 2013-04-11    (015)

Abstract:    (020)

This is our 13th Ontology Summit, a 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: "Ontology Evaluation Across
the Ontology Lifecycle."    (021)

Currently, there is no agreed methodology for development of
ontologies, and there are no universally agreed metrics for ontology
evaluation. At the same time, everybody agrees that there are a lot of
badly engineered ontologies out there, thus people use -- at least
implicitly -- some criteria for the evaluation of ontologies.    (022)

During this OntologySummit, we seek to identify best practices for
ontology development and evaluation. We will consider the entire
lifecycle of an ontology -- from requirements gathering and analysis,
through to design and implementation. In this endeavor, the Summit
will seek collaboration with the software engineering and knowledge
acquisition communities. Research in these fields has led to several
mature models for the software lifecycle and the design of
knowledge-based systems, and we expect that fruitful interaction among
all participants will lead to a consensus for a methodology within
ontological engineering. Following earlier Ontology Summit practice,
the synthesized results of this season's discourse will be published
as a Communique.    (023)

In this 13th virtual panel session of the Summit, the co-lead editors
will present their plans for the communique and an initial draft, and
discuss that with the community. They will go through the document by
sections, present them, and then ask for comments.    (024)

******************    (025)

These sessions, like all Ontolog virtual events, are open and free of
charge. Anyone who is interested, or (better still) who may have

colleagues who may also find these sessions to be of interest.    (026)

*RSVP* by emailing Peter Yim at <peter.yim@xxxxxxxx> 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.    (027)

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