Hello everyone,    (01)

we are getting ready to start Ontology Summit 2014:    (02)

"Semantic Web, Big Data, and Applied Ontology"
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2014    (03)

  Description, Goals, and Objectives:
  This is our 9th OntologySummit, 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: "Semantic Web, Big Data,
and Applied Ontology"    (04)

  This Summit provides a great opportunity for building bridges between
the Semantic Web, Big Data, and Applied Ontology communities. We would
like to see a number of concrete objectives that we could hopefully
achieve. The Big Data and Semantic Web communities can bring a wide
array of real problems and technologies (e.g. performance and
scalability challenges, automated reasoning tools), while the Applied
Ontology community can bring a large body of knowledge and content
(i.e. ontologies) and ontological analysis techniques.    (05)

  Specific issues we can attempt to address, include:    (06)

* What ontologies are required by the Semantic Web / Big Data applications?
** If these ontologies are not available in any current ontology
repository, how can we engage the applied ontology community to
develop them?    (07)

* Of the ontologies that are being widely used within the Semantic Web
/ Big Data community, what kinds of analysis can be done with them?    (08)

* How can reasoning tools being developed within the Semantic Web /
Big Data community be applied to the ontologies that are being
developed by the applied ontology community?    (09)

* What other semantic technologies can be used to support the ontology
lifecycle? ... (building on the results of last year's Summit).    (010)

Following earlier Ontology Summit practice, the synthesized results of
this season's discourse will be published as a Communique.    (011)
