Dear All,

With the conclusion of another hugely successful Ontology Summit 2014
season (which ended with the 2-days Symposium hosted by the NCO-NITRD
on April 28 & 29 in Metropolitan Washington DC) it is time we look
back, review what has transpired, reflect on the lessons learned, and
project what we might do for the next Ontology Summit season.

Our traditional Ontology Summit "postmortem" is coming up, as a lot of
you already know. You are invited to join us at the OntologySummit2014
Review and Follow-up Action Planning Session this Thursday, May

Also, the OntologySummit2014 Communique is now available, and your
endorsement is solicited. See:
... (endorsement instructions can be found at the top of that page.)
... Read it, and send us your endorsement, if you haven't already!

OntologySummit2014: Review and Follow-up Session - Thu 2014-05-15

Summit Theme: "Big Data and Semantic Web Meet Applied Ontology"

Session Co-chairs: Professor Michael Gruninger & Dr. leo Obrst


With the adjournment of the OntologySummit2014_Symposium (on
29-Apr-2014) we have completed the program of this year's
OntologySummit. This has been our 9th Ontology Summit, that featured a
host of events spanning four months, and jointly organized by Ontolog,
NIST, NCOR, NCBO, IAOA &NCO_NITRD, with the championship from our
organizing committee members and support of our co-sponsors. The theme
adopted for this Ontology Summit was: "Big Data and Semantic Web Meet
Applied Ontology."

The event today is our virtual postmortem session. We will be
expecting participants of this year's summit, especially members of
the organizing team, as well as anyone interested in the process or
content of past and future Ontology Summits, at this session.

The goal of this session is to revisit the Ontology Summit that just
finished, and to plan ahead for the future. We will discuss what
worked and what can be improved during the 4 months of
OntologySummit2014 (plus the preparation work that led up to it,) and
get ideas on how to make next year's Ontology Summit even better. This
meeting gives us an opportunity to develop some plans and initiatives
for action that will move what we have achieved beyond the 4-month
Summit itself. Further, this meeting also provides an initial
opportunity to suggest topics and themes for next year's Ontology


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. Feel free to pass this invitation along to
colleagues who may also find these sessions to be of interest.

*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:
