Dear All,    (01)

As we are all recovering from the excitement of the Ontology Summit
2013 (which just ended with the 2-days Symposium at NIST on May-3,) it
is time we look back, review what has transpired, tally the lessons,
and project what we might do for Ontology Summit 2014.    (02)

Originally slated for this Thursday (May-16),  we have since received
multiple requests to push this "postmortem" event out by a week.
Please note, and consider yourself invited to join us at the
OntologySummit2013 Review and Follow-up Action Planning Session.    (03)

Also, the OntologySummit2013 Communique is now available, and your
endorsement is solicited. See:
... (endorsement instructions can be found at the top of that page.)
... Read it, and send us your endorsement, if you haven't already!    (04)

OntologySummit2013: Review and Follow-up Session - Thu 2013-05-23    (08)

Summit Theme: "Ontology Evaluation Across the Ontology Lifecycle"    (09)

Session Topic: OntologySummit2013 (postmortem) review and follow-up
action planning    (010)

Session Co-chairs: Dr. Matthew West & Professor Michael Gruninger    (011)

Abstract:    (012)

With the adjournment of the OntologySummit2013_Symposium (on
3-May-2013) we have completed the program of this year's
OntologySummit. This has been our 8th Ontology Summit, that featured a
host of events spanning four months, and jointly organized by Ontolog,
NIST, NCOR, NCBO, IAOA & NCO_NITRD with the championship from our
organizing committee members and support of our co-sponsors. The theme
adopted for this Ontology Summit was: "Ontology Evaluation Across the
Ontology Lifecycle."    (013)

The event today is our virtual postmortem session. We will be
expecting participants of this year's summit, especially members of
the organizing team, as well as anyone interested in the process of
content of past and future Ontology Summits, at this session.    (014)

The goal of this session is to revisit the Ontology Summit that just
finished, and to plan ahead for the future. We will discuss what
worked and what can be improved during the 4 months of
OntologySummit2013 (plus the preparation work that led up to it,) and
get ideas on how to make next year's Ontology Summit even better. This
meeting gives us an opportunity to develop some plans and initiatives
for action that will move what we have achieved beyond the 4-month
Summit itself. Further, this meeting is also an opportunity to suggest
topics and themes for next year's Ontology Summit.    (015)
