Hello everyone,    (01)

we are getting ready to start Ontology Summit 2013:    (02)

"Ontology Evaluation Across the Ontology Lifecycle"
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2013    (03)

 Description, Goals, and Objectives:
 Currently, there is no agreed methodology for development of
 ontologies, and there are no universally agreed metrics for ontology
 evaluation. At the same time, everybody agrees that there a lot of
 badly engineered ontologies out there, thus people use -- at least
 implicitly -- some criteria for the evaluation of ontologies.    (04)

 The goal for Ontology Summit 2013 is to identify best practices for
 ontology development and evaluation.
 We will consider the entire lifecycle of an ontology -- from
 requirements gathering and analysis, through to design and
 implementation. In this endeavor, the Summit will seek collaboration
 with the software engineering and knowledge acquisition communities.
 Research in these fields has led to several mature models for the
 software lifecycle and the design of knowledge-based systems, and we
 expect that fruitful interaction among all participants will lead to a
 consensus for a methodology within ontological engineering.
 Following earlier Ontology Summit practice, the
synthesized results of this season's discourse will be published as a
Communique.    (05)

Three keys dates are already locked in:    (06)
