This session is a follow up to a breakout group at the previous workshop .
An ontology is a formal specification of concepts and their relations. It can be used to:
- Disambiguate the communication with experts from different communities
- Data integration (as done in chemistry and biology)
- Overview for new researchers/students/…
We will give a short introduction to ontologies and present the current state of an open source ontology that is developed as part of the research project SzenarienDB.
