Topic: *From Ontology to Data Model: Choices and Design Decisions*
       *Ontolog Mini-Series: Database and Ontology (Session-2) - Thu
16-Nov-2006*    (010)

*Abstract*: (by Matthew West)    (011)

An ontology describes the types of things that exist, and rules that
govern them, a data model defines records about things, and is the
basis for a database design. Not all the information in an ontology
may be needed (or can even be held) in a data model and there are a
number of choices that need to be made. For example, some of the
ontology may be held as reference data instead of as entity types.
This talk will explore these choices, with illustrations from the ISO
15926-2 data model.    (012)

This will be a virtual session over an augmented conference call. The
session is expected to start with the presentation from our invited
speaker, and then followed by an extended discussion. The entire
session will be recorded and made available as open content under the
prevailing Ontolog IPR policy (see:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?WikiHomePage#nid32).    (014)

As usual, this Ontolog event is open to all. I look forward to having
you at this session. Please pass the announcement along to those who
might be interested to join us too.    (015)

*RSVP* by by emailing me at <peter.yim@xxxxxxxx> offline to register
your attendance, and allow us to ensure we have enough resources to
support all participants.    (016)
