Following the success of last year's competition, and the award of
the SUMO prize to Robin Sharp of the Technical University of Denmark, we
are announcing the second annual SUMO prize for the best open source
ontology extension of SUMO. (01)
The SUMO prize is for US$3000.00 will be awarded to the best open source
project that extends SUMO. Entries will be due electronically to Adam
Pease (apease [at] articulatesoftware [dot] com) by December 1, 2007.
Awards will be made December 31, 2007. Entries should be SUO-KIF files
that extend SUMO and its domain ontologies, and conform to them. (02)
In addition to the logical soundness of the ontology with respect to the
SUMO ontologies, entries will be judged on several criteria: (03)
* Degree of formalization - is the ontology fully specified with
rules or just a taxonomy or collection of basic relational statements?
* Scope and coverage of the ontology - is it just a few terms, or
* Does the ontology cover a coherent new topic or domain?
* Actual utility of the ontology in an application (04)
Further details are available at <http://www.ontologyportal.org/prize.html> (05)
Please feel free to circulate this notice to your students and
colleagues and any mailing lists you feel appropriate. (06)
