In this first webinar of the OntoCommons project we will provide a brief overview about the OntoCommons EcoSystem (OCES), Top Reference Ontologies, Industrial Domain Ontologies, FAIR Ontologies, Standardisation in the ontology ecosystem, the OntoCommons Community and the Focus Areas of the OntoCommons project.
The webinar will be held on 23 February 2021 at 2pm GMT (15:00 CET).
Ontologists, industrial stakeholders, implementers, and end users should participate to learn more about:
- The Ontology Commons EcoSystem (OCES)
- The roles played by the Top Reference Ontologies, Industrial Domains and FAIR Ontologies
- Standardisation in the ontology ecosytem
- Our plans to grow the OntoCommons Community through engagement with key Focus Areas
The OntoCommons project, an H2020 Coordination and Support Action, launched in November 2020 with three online kickoff sessions, during which more than 60 delegates from 19 partner organisations as well as Advisory Board Members discussed its objectives and actions.
OntoCommons aims to create harmonised and ontology-driven data documentation for Industry Commons, overcoming interoperability bottlenecks and facilitating data sharing and valorisation.
Over its thirty-six-month duration, the project will bring together and coordinate data documentation and standardisation activities from the most relevant EU and international stakeholders and initiatives.
“OntoCommons provides a reliable turnkey solution for industrial stakeholders to confidently use ontologies in their businesses and to share their data. In addition, OntoCommons will prove the long-awaited key role of ontology in ensuring data interoperability and will promote data-driven innovation by boosting trust in the semantics of the shared industrial data.” Hedi Karray – OntoCommons Technical Coordinator
The much anticipated release of EMMO is now available under a Creative Commons licence.
EMMO is a multidisciplinary effort to develop a standard representational framework (the ontology) based on physical sciences, materials modelling knowledge, analytical philosophy and information and communication technologies. EMMO is designed to be able to represent the complex multiscale nature of chemicals and materials, multiple perspectives on those and of course all types of models, represented in line with a previously established standard for materials modelling terminology and classification (CWA 17284). Properties of materials are strictly related to measurements, in line with ISO standards. Quantum Mechanics representations cover the two major interpretations: Copenhagen and de Broglie-Bohm. All relations in the ontology are based on just four primitives: taxonomy (is-a relations), set-theory (membership), mereotopology (parthood and connections), and semiotics (representations, properties).
EMMO is ready to drive the integration of heterogeneous data sources, interoperability of modelling, integrated digital marketplaces and digitalisation of R&D. It is already being applied in a number of European projects (e.g. SimDome).
For further information there are resources on the EMMC website (note that registration may be required) which will be further updated with recordings of a recent EMMO Training workshop. For reference, bookmark EMMO.tech or contact us via email.
