The Mission of Ontolog (a.k.a. the "Ontolog Forum")
- Ontolog is an open, international, virtual community of practice:
- To discuss practical issues and strategies associated with the development and application of both formal and informal ontologies.
- To identify ontological engineering approaches that might be applied to standardization efforts.
- To strive to advance the field of ontological engineering and semantic technologies, and to help move them into mainstream applications.
- To advance interoperability of systems through the use of ontologies.
- To encourage interoperability among ontologies themselves.
