Ontology Summit 2022 — Pandemics and Other Disasters

Ontology Summit

The Ontology Summit is an annual series of events that involves the ontology community and communities related to each year’s theme chosen for the summit. The Ontology Summit was started by Ontolog and NIST, and the program has been co-organized by Ontolog and NIST along with the co-sponsorship of other organizations that are supportive of the Summit goals and objectives.

Ontology Summit 2022 Theme: Pandemics and Other Disasters

The COVID-19 pandemic as well as other pandemics and disasters have
prompted an impressive, worldwide response by governments, industry, and
the academic community. Ontologies can play a significant role in search,
data description, interoperability and harmonization of the increasingly
large data sources that are relevant to disasters such as the COVID-19
pandemic. This summit will examine the role that ontologies can play in
disasters. The first track will be an overview of the notion of disaster.
The other tracks will examine how the different kinds of disaster are
employing ontologies.
