Dear Forum members and “Ontologists”
I would like to draw your attention to a special session at
the AGU Fall meeting
IN09: Use of Ontologies in
Earth Science Informatics
Ontologies have increasingly
become a more common sight in a number of earth science informatics
applications. They have been utilized for different purposes, for example to
mediate between semantic heterogeneities or knowledge representations that can
either be reasoned from or queried against. This session aims at bringing
together researchers that have made use of ontologies in a variety of scenarios
and how ontologies have been embedded in larger systems in which they fulfill a
specific purpose. The session is not limited to applications only but also
invites contributions that deal with ontology visualization, ontology growth
and maturation based on community input and development, and also how ontologies
can be interacted with and how they are being implemented.
and at the same time like you to consider joining us in
December 13-17 in SF. The deadline for abstracts is September 2nd
(coming up soon!). The abstract submission site can be reached at
with additional information on the meeting one level up.
