University at Buffalo, April 3-5, 2017

Guest Participants

Clare Paul, Materials and Ontology Engineer, Air Force Research Lab, Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton, Ohio
Hedi Karray, Production Engineering Laboratory, ENIT, Toulouse, France
Stephen Kahmann, Inovex Information Systems
Jordan Lewis, Inovex Information Systems

Note on 'MatOnto': The current MatOnto site hosts the Inovex semantic web software, which is in process of being rebranded as 'Mobi'.


Monday 9am-noon: Park 141

Review of the open (= not legally encumbered) portions of the Materials, Manufacturing, and Design (MMD) vocabulary
Structure of the MMD vocabulary
Use of MMD in creating Aristotelian definitions.

Monday 1pm-4pm: Park 142

Review of Categories (against the background of the BFO distinction between universals and defined classes)

By close of Monday session: determination of the scope of MatOnto.

Tuesday 10am-noon: Park 141

Review of legacy ontologies in the public domain that might serve as inputs to MatOnto

Tuesday noon-5pm: Jeannette Martin Room, 5th Floor, Capen Hall (please bring lunch)

This session will be a heavy-duty working session involving multiple screens.

Screen 1: BFO open in an ontology editor
Screen 2: candidate domain ontology MatOnto input in another and project that onto a 2nd screen beside the BFO projection. We will feature in particular the SLACKS Semantic Knowledge Management System for Laminated Composites, which will be presented by Ian Grosse (UMass Amherst)
Screen 3: project information about the domain ontology onto a 3rd screen;

-- Annotate the classes and properties of the domain ontology to identify where the domain ontology entities would seem to align with BFO (first iteration). -- Annotate the classes and properties of the domain ontology with the initial set of "portion of material" categories -- Assess the domain ontology hierarchy from a mono-hierarchy perspective -- Remain in-session until Wed at 11:00 am, have lunch, organize and consolidate all material, discuss next steps (rather than Tue?)

Wednesday 9am-noon Park 141: Conclusion

At the conclusion of activity on Wed afternoon, we should have -- at least one location known to all where open MMD definitions for can be sourced -- an organized set of public domain information about each of the domain ontologies (location, description, articles, general initial assessment) -- a starting point for aligning the domain ontologies with the BFO (via class and property annotation of domain ontologies) -- some level of understanding about the correctness of any hierarchies; and as a result, a starting point for reengineering the hierarchy
