This is the final reminder that the Ontology Summit 2014 virtual panel
session-10: "Track C: Overcoming Ontology Engineering Bottlenecks-II"
is coming up tomorrow (Thursday, Mar. 20, 2014.)
See program details at:

Anyone who has a professional interest in Big Data, Semantic Web,
Linked Data, and Applied Ontology would probably not want to miss
this. ... RSVP now, if you haven't already! (... see details below)

* Date: Thursday, 20-March-2014

* Start Time: 9:30am PDT / 12:30pm EDT / 5:30pm CET / 16:30 GMT/UTC
 ref: World Clock -
* Expected Call Duration: ~2.0 hours

* Dial-in:
** Phone (US): +1 (206) 402-0100 ... Conference ID: 141184# , or
** Skype: call skypeID: "joinconference"
  ... when prompted enter Conference ID: 141184#

Just point your browser to the session page:
when you are about to connect into the session. Details will be there
at the top of the page. Please try dialing-in a few minutes before the
scheduled start-time, as we have a very full program planned for this

 *** Please pay special attention to the start-time for this session,
as this week is among the tricky ones, when North America is already
in Summer time, Europe is still in Winter time, and lots of other
regions don't do daylight saving time at all. Therefore the session
time may be unlike previous ones for your particular time zone! ***

Talk to you all tomorrow! =ppy

****** OntologySummit2014 Session-10 ***[updated]*****

Track-C: Overcoming Ontology Engineering Bottlenecks - II

In this session we will look at a range of ways that bottlenecks arise
and can be overcome, including annotating linked data, overcoming
deadlocks in ontology development, and using a workbench to develop
semantic applications.

* Professor Oscar Corcho (Universidad Politecnica de Madrid) - "10
basic rules to overcome ontology engineering deadlocks in
collaborative ontology engineering tasks"

* Dr. Dhaval Thakker (University of Leeds) - "Modeling Cultural
Variations in Interpersonal Communication for Augmenting User
Generated Content"

* Dr. Peter Haase (Fluid Operations) - "Developing Semantic
Applications with the Information Workbench - Aspects of Ontology

After the panelists briefings, there will be time for Q&A and an open
discussion among the panel and all participants.

********************* Details ************************

This is our 9th Ontology Summit, an annual 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: "Big Data
and Semantic Web Meet Applied Ontology."

Since the beginnings of the Semantic Web, ontologies have played key
roles in the design and deployment of new semantic technologies. Yet
over the years, the level of collaboration between the Semantic Web
and Applied Ontology communities has been much less than expected.
Within Big Data applications, ontologies appear to have had little

This year's Ontology Summit is an opportunity for building bridges
between the Semantic Web, Linked Data, Big Data, and Applied Ontology
communities. On the one hand, the Semantic Web, Linked Data, and Big
Data communities can bring a wide array of real problems (such as
performance and scalability challenges and the variety problem in Big
Data) and technologies (automated reasoning tools) that can make use
of ontologies. On the other hand, the Applied Ontology community can
bring a large body of common reusable content (ontologies) and
ontological analysis techniques. Identifying and overcoming ontology
engineering bottlenecks is critical for all communities.

OntologySummit2014 will pose and address the primary challenges in
these areas of interaction among the different communities. The Summit
activities will bring together insights and methods from these
different communities, synthesize new insights, and disseminate
knowledge across field boundaries.

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

for this summit)


These sessions, like all Ontolog virtual events, are open and free of
charge. Anyone who is interested, or (better still) who may have
something to contribute, is welcome. Please refer to event details on
the session pages, to which the hyperlink is given above, where you
will find session agenda, conference call dial-in, slides and other
pertinent information. Please help us spread the word by relaying this
message to other relevant community mailing lists, and ask colleagues
of your who may also find these sessions to be of interest to come
join us.

*RSVP* by emailing Peter Yim at <peter.yim@xxxxxxxx> offline (or add
yourself directly to the session page if you are already an Ontolog or
Ontology Summit community member) so that we can prepare enough
resources to support everyone. [Please state clearly the date of the
session you are registering for in your email.] ... All respondents
will be subscribed (if they aren't already so) to the
[ontology-summit] mailing list so they are participate in the virtual

These sessions will be recorded and made available in a publicly
accessible archive. Therefore, before participating, please make sure
you are cognizant of our IPR policy ( ref:

event that culminates this Summit's discourse, scheduled for April 28
& 29, 2014 in the Washington DC Area, USA, is now open for
registration. Both on-site and remote participation are supported.
Participation is free-of-charge, but prior registration is required.
