  *** 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! ***    (09)

********************* Details ************************    (035)

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."    (036)

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
impact.    (037)

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.    (038)

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.    (039)

Following earlier Ontology Summit practice, the synthesized results of
this season's discourse will be published as a Communique.    (040)
