Dear Colleagues,


After eleven (11) excellent and well attended "OntologySumit2014: Big
Data and Semantic Web Meet Applied Ontology" panel sessions, six (6)
Hackathon Projects, and numerous insightful input contributed from the
community, it is time to roll-up the results. We are pleased to invite
you to join us this Thursday (April-3) for session-12, when our Track
Champions will present the final syntheses on what has transpired in
the OntologySummit2014 program proceedings. Based on that, our
Communique Lead Editors, the champions and all participants will
discuss and coordinate the consensus positions and messages that we,
as a community, will want to put forth in our OntologySummit2014
Communique.

****** OntologySummit2014 Session-12 Thu 2014.04.03 ********

In this session, we will roll up what has transpired in the
OntologySummit2014 proceedings so far, after two rounds of technical
panel sessions that revolved around the four aspects, as designated in
the foci for Tracks A, B, C & D, as well as the delivery of Six (6)
Hackathon Projects (our Track E effort). Track champions will present
the syntheses of the discourse of each of the four content tracks and
a summary of the Hackathon effort. Write-ups of the syntheses will
contribute to what will go into this year's Communique.

One of our co-lead Editors will then moderate an open discussion,
among the Track Champions and All Participants, on how we can
optimally fit the syntheses material into the adopted Communique
outline, and aim towards arriving at consensus positions that we would
want to assume in this year's communique, as a community.

Details for this session can be found at:
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2014_04_03

*** Please pay special attention to the start-time - of 9:30am PDT /
12:30pm EDT / 6:30pm CEST / 5:30pm BST / 16:30 UTC - as in this week,
both N. America and Europe will be in Summer time, but there are still
other regions that don't do daylight saving time at all! ***


********************* Details ************************

This is our 9th Ontology Summit, an annual joint initiative by NIST,
Ontolog, NCOR, NCBO, IAOA & NCO_NITRD with the support of our
co-sponsors. The theme adopted for this Ontology Summit is: "Big Data
and Semantic Web Meet Applied Ontology."

Since the beginnings of the Semantic Web, ontologies have played key
roles in the design and deployment of new semantic technologies. Yet
over the years, the level of collaboration between the Semantic Web
and Applied Ontology communities has been much less than expected.
Within Big Data applications, ontologies appear to have had little
impact.

This year's Ontology Summit is an opportunity for building bridges
between the Semantic Web, Linked Data, Big Data, and Applied Ontology
communities. On the one hand, the Semantic Web, Linked Data, and Big
Data communities can bring a wide array of real problems (such as
performance and scalability challenges and the variety problem in Big
Data) and technologies (automated reasoning tools) that can make use
of ontologies. On the other hand, the Applied Ontology community can
bring a large body of common reusable content (ontologies) and
ontological analysis techniques. Identifying and overcoming ontology
engineering bottlenecks is critical for all communities.

OntologySummit2014 will pose and address the primary challenges in
these areas of interaction among the different communities. The Summit
activities will bring together insights and methods from these
different communities, synthesize new insights, and disseminate
knowledge across field boundaries.

Following earlier Ontology Summit practice, the synthesized results of
this season's discourse will be published as a Communique.
