************    (016)

This is our 8th Ontology Summit, a joint initiative by ONTOLOG, NIST, NCOR, 
NCBO, IAOA & NCO_NITRD with the support of our co-sponsors. The theme adopted 
for this Ontology Summit is: "Ontology Evaluation Across the Ontology 
Lifecycle." In an earlier planning session last month, the community and 
subsequently, the summit organizing team brainstormed on how best to frame the 
issues. These inputs were carefully reviewed and synthesized by the Ontology 
Summit Organizing Committee and its leadership. It is this plan and program 
that we will be discussing with everyone during the launch event.     (017)

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 are a lot of badly engineered ontologies out 
there, thus people use -- at least implicitly -- some criteria for the 
evaluation of ontologies.     (018)

During these 3 to 4 months (16 weeks after the Launch, to be exact) when the 
Summit is in session, we seek 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.     (019)

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,

of interest.     (021)

*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 
discourse.     (022)

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