SCIWS2: 1st AGU Fall Meeting Geoscience Community Ontology Engineering Workshop (GCOEW)

The field of  Ontology engineering in computer science and information science is a field which studies the methods and methodologies for building ontologies: formal representations of a set of concepts within a domain and the relationships between those concepts.

Building on the FAIR data movement, the 1st AGU Fall Meeting Geoscience Community Ontology Engineering Workshop (GCOEW) will bring together multi-discipline semantic technologists from across Earth and space science informatics to work in a hands-on fashion to advance the role of semantic technologies within FAIR. The workshop will offer participants the opportunity to get hands-on with a variety of strategic semantic interoperability (vocabulary, data semantics, ontology development, ontology alignment) issues highlighted by ESIP's Semantic Technologies Committee with the aim of facilitating future knowledge discovery about planet Earth.

This workshop is open to everyone interested and practicing ontology engineering across the AGU community. In order to determine if this workshop will be of value to you, prior to the meeting we highly encourage prospective attendees/participants to scope out this GitHub ESIPFed site (look for 'GCOEW19' tag) as an example of the work which will be carried out. Please register an issue if you would like to include it in the day's workshop. Note: Although this repository points to SWEET, we will accept and cover a wider range of issues so please open an issue and we can discuss. Alternatively please contact Lewis McGibbney, NASA JPL.
