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. 

There will be 18 short talks from leading academics, and practitioners from major organisations 
and government, as well as a demo session and a networking session.
