ESIP Summer Meeting Pre-Conference Event
Introduction to ontologies: enabling collaboration, enhancing interoperability
Co-organized by the ESIP Semantics Technology Committee and Agriculture and Climate Cluster

Overview. Deriving transdisciplinary solutions that are responsive to complex socio-environmental challenges require, as stated in ESIP’s mission statement, linking “observation, research, application, education and use of Earth science”. One of the motivators behind the FAIR Principles for scientific data management and stewardship is to enhance machine-augmented capabilities to help researchers and practitioners find relevant data and information across “traditional” silos. The aim of this tutorial is to provide participants with an overview of the role ontologies play in enhancing collaboration across these silos. Outcomes. The tutorial is meant to (1) help participants understand the value of developing robust descriptions of processes, and harmonizing variable names in code, models, data products, and publications; and (2) see how concept maps can be used to help model knowledge. Time and date. 2020-07-13 (Monday) | 1200 hrs US eastern daylight time (GMT-4) | 3.5 hours (inclusive of a brief break) Instructors. The tutorial will be jointly delivered by Drs. Anne Thessen (Oregon State University) and Pier Buttigieg (Alfred-Wegener-Institut). Fee. Complimentary. Registration. Please register <here> by midnight (US eastern daylight time) 2020-07-09 . Instructions for joining the tutorial using Zoom will be sent to registered participants on 2020-07-10. For ESIP 2020 summer meeting participants. This tutorial provides preparatory background for the following two sessions: (1) 2020-07-14. Community concept mapping for data-to-decisions – Use cases in climate adaptation, disaster planning, and disaster response, (2) 2020-07-22. Visioning an operational-grade, digital knowledge commons for Earth and Environmental Science.
