Request for "Good" Ontologies
This message is about an effort you may wish to know about and hopefully
WHAT: The NeOn project is supporting an effort to collect high quality
I invite you to submit one or more "exemplary ontologies" to a growing
catalog in the Ontology Design Patterns Wiki.
Identify one or more ontologies that:
you have significant knowledge or experience with,
you regard as an excellent example of a "high quality" ontology
See: "What is an Exemplary Ontology" for ideas about this; edit them if
Can you or any of your colleagues think of exemplary ontologies to add to
the catalog? Think first about the ontologies you have used that are
authored by others, rather than your own.
WHY: to make it easy for people to find good ontologies to draw
inspiration from and to emulate.
If you don't have much time, I will make it easier by talking you through
it on the phone. I'm UscholdM on Skype.
