CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: 2nd UK Ontology Network Meeting, April 11th 2013, Edinburgh, SCOTLAND
We are pleased to announce the 2nd UK Ontology Network Meeting, to be held at University of Edinburgh on April 11th 2013 (http://dream.inf.ed.ac.uk/events/ukont-13/2013_workshop_program.html). The theme of this meeting is to understand how ontology development and application are being used to address problems in the UK. Amongst other areas of interest, there will be a particular focus on creating and using open data. The program and audience is intentionally very diverse; the aim is to cover areas from many disciplines. We are particularly interested in bringing together those creating and developing the technology with those using the technology in industry, government and public organisations. The workshop will largely follow the format of last year's successful 1st meeting, held in Manchester (http://dream.inf.ed.ac.uk/events/ukont-13/ukon_workshop_2012.html). Registration will be opening shortly. We expect to charge a small fee to cover catering. The programme will be announced in due course.
