October 11 @ 14:00 – October 12 @ 17:00 CEST
2 Afternoon Sessions (CET time) on October 11 & 12
Ontologies are a holistic approach to semantically describe data, information and knowledge of a domain. They provide terms, relations and logic to semantically annotate and link data building knowledge graphs. The application of standard taxonomies and vocabularies from the very beginning of data generation and along research workflows in electronic lab notebooks (ELNs), software tools, and their final publication in data repositories create FAIR data straightforwardly.
The 1st Ontologies4Chem workshop 2022 focused on reports and discussion of the current state and future plans of most of the relevant chemistry ontologies (i.e. CHEMINF, Chebi, ChIRO, EDAM, CHEMROF, OBI, SIO, CHMO, RXNO, MOP) providing an overarching overview on the landscape of ontologies, as well as presentations on tools like ROBOT, NFDI4Chem Terminology Service and ODK, used for developing and working with ontologies.
In this year’s workshop we would like to deepen the discussions around the existing chemical ontologies to address questions around the need of being able to recommend them as canonical resources and around how to improve them. We also will be discussing tools that can be used in an ontology-based research data management context.
The workshop brings together creators, curators and users of chemical ontologies to discuss their application opportunities for joint efforts on future developments.
The presentations of this workshop will be recorded.
Workshop program details can be found on the agenda.
The Ontologies4Chem are browsable in the NFDI4Chem Terminology Service.
