An "Earth Science Ontology Dialog" mini-series

The "Earth Science Ontology Dialog" mini-series kicked-off on 23 August 2012 with a well attended virtual session on the Ontolog Forum. This mini-series of events are co-organized or supported by members of the EarthCube community, Ontolog community, SOCoP community and the IAOA community. See details at:

This mini-series of virtual panel sessions (dubbed "EarthScienceOntolog") is designed to explore the current status and application of multi-level ontologies towards developing a semantically enabled cyberinfrastructure for the Earth Science Community. In addition, one key mission of the mini-series is to bring together members of both communities (Earth Science and ontology/semantics) into a meaningful dialog. We anticipate that the sharing of requirements and use cases, geo-science problems and issues, ontological engineering architectures and approaches, and prospective tools, will enable collaborative understanding of the challenges and potential value in the application of ontology and semantics in Earth Science.

Five virtual sessions have been planned:
... mark your calendars and join us! ( RSVP to with your name and affiliation, and the date and title of the event.)
