Ontology Summit 2013: Ontology Evaluation Across the Ontology Lifecycle

The goal for the Ontology Summit 2013 is to identify best practices for ontology development and metrics for ontology evaluation. 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. The Ontology Summit consists of a series of virtual events, which is concluded by the face-to-face meeting in Gaithersburg, MD, on May 2-3, 2013.
