The projects EU-IoT and OntoCommons are co-organising a workshop focused on ontological interoperability, standardisation recommendations discussion on 7 July 2022 from 3pm to 6pm.
The meeting theme concerns semantic interoperability and specifically, the role of ontologies in providing interoperability. Semantic interoperability is one of the key pillars of open and flexible IoT systems. Ontologies are a key component of semantic interoperability, as they provide the foundation and capability for machines to interpret, infer knowledge from different data sets. Ontologies are, however, often vendor or protocol-based, and therefore, building universal ontologies or addressing mechanisms that can support an adequate interconnection across different ontologies is time-consuming and error-prone.
To assist in overcoming the mentioned challenges, this online workshop shall be dedicated to the discussion on the current status of ontological interoperability, provided by different key stakeholders and also provide a panel discussion for recommendations that can facilitate a better deployment of ontological interoperability across different vertical domains.
The expected outcomes of this meeting are:
15:00 - 15:10 • Welcome - Rute Sofia (fortiss) and Hedi Karray (ENIT)
15:10 - 15:20 • EU-IoT overview - Monique Calisti (Martel)
• OntoCommons overview - Hedi Karray (ENIT)
15:20 - 15:30 • Interaction session 1 on Ontological interoperability
15:30 - 16:35 • Session I: Perspectives on Ontological Interoperability, challenges and key priorities
16:35 - 16:45 • Interaction session 2: Challenges and key priorities – your perspective
16:45 - 18:00 • Panel discussion: Recommendations for ontological interoperability across vertical domains
18:00 - 18:10 • Summary and closure
Trust-IT leads the dissemination, communication, and support to standardisation activities in OntoCommons and is the co-organiser of the workshop event “EU-IoT and OntoCommons workshop: ontological interoperability, standardisation recommendations discussion”. Trust-IT helped, from an organisational point of view, to shape the agenda, recruit relevant participants and define strategies on participant perspectives.
Moreover, the team promoted the event on the social media channels of the project through posts and dedicated campaigns.
