does the univ charge any fee, it is not clear?
For those who wish to audit the Protege tutorial (= participate without credit) there is a fee of $100.
For those who wish to audit the BFO 2.0 tutorial there is no fee.
All auditing participants must register, using the registration form provided here: http://ncor.buffalo.edu/Tutorial_Registration_Form.pdf
There is a university fee, but only for those taking the tutorials for credit. This credit can be set against our MA program in ontology, and also against the Graduate Certificate Program in Ontology which the University at Buffalo will be initiating soon. In addition, credits may be recognized at your home university. Please write to phismith@xxxxxxxxxxx if you wish to take the course for credit.
The University at Buffalo is pleased to announce two on-line tutorials in ontology:
I. Introduction to Protégé for absolute beginners
Saturday and Sunday, August 11-12, 2012.
Faculty: Ron Rudnicki (CUBRC, Buffalo), Alan Ruttenberg (University at Buffalo), Barry Smith (University at Buffalo)
This course will provide an introduction to the Protégé 4.2 ontology editor. It will begin with a brief introduction to ontology building, and to the use and importance of ontologies. This will be followed by an introduction to the Web Ontology Language (OWL). The bulk of the course will consist of an interactive introduction to the use of Protégé in building an ontology. No background in the use of computer languages and programming is presupposed. All sessions will be highly interactive.
Further details are available here: http://ncorwiki.buffalo.edu/index.php/Introduction_to_Protege
2. Basic Formal Ontology 2.0
Saturday and Sunday, August 18-19, 2012
Faculty: Alan Ruttenberg and Barry Smith (University at Buffalo)
Basic Formal Ontology is currently being used by over 100 ontology-based research projects in biomedical informatics and increasingly in other fields. The tutorial will provide an introduction to the content and use of
BFO in ontology development. Participants will acquire knowledge of the ontology and of its use as top-level ontology in multiple ontology development projects in a variety of fields. They will learn about the most recent developments in the new version 2.0 of the BFO ontology, including new formalizations of BFO in first-order logic and in OWL.
Further details are available here: http://ncorwiki.buffalo.edu/index.php/Basic_Formal_Ontology_2.0
Both tutorials are also open for face-to-face participation.
