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 


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 

Registration will be opening shortly.  We expect to charge a small fee to cover catering.
The programme will be announced in due course.  Confirmed speakers at this stage are:
