International Industrial Ontologies Workshops

- Are you up-to-date with the latest developments within industrial ontologies? 

- How is the field of ontologies driving business value in industrial contexts? 

- How can different industry stakeholders collaborate and develop new approaches?

The Industrial Ontology Foundry (IOF), SIRIUS (Centre for Scalable Data Access - University of Oslo) and DNV GL welcome you to join the International Industrial Ontologies Workshops in Oslo, Norway on 4 - 7 February 2019.

Are you actively involved in developing and using ontologies to improve interoperability and drive value in industrial contexts? If so, this is the right event for you. 

The first two days of the International Industrial Ontologies Workshops bring together leaders responsible for implementing ontologies in their businesses, experienced practitioners, academics, and standards developers to share their experiences. We have scheduled an exciting line-up of a speakers, panels and collaborative workshops! 

The second part of the event consists of two days of focused workshops targeted towards ontology practitioners. 

Who should join?

The International Industrial Ontologies Workshops event on 4-5 February is targeted towards business professionals working with the implementation of industry ontologies, academics, and standards developers.

The workshops during 6-7 February are targeted to developers and those using ontologies to drive value in their organization.

Who qualifies for discounted rates?

Are you from IOF/SIRIUS/DNV GL, a Postgraduate student or participating in one of the panels?  If so please register using this discounted rate.

Speakers February 4th or workshop moderators February 5th are entitled to a free ticket for the day on which they perform their duties, any extra days booked will incur the regular fee. 

Non-profit event

This is a non-profit event, aiming to increase the collaboration within and between the industry and the academia related to the large potential of ontologies. The ticket price is set to only cover the organizer's costs. 

Workshop locations: 

The workshops on Monday 4 February and Tuesday 5 February are held at DNV GL Headquarters, Veritasveien 2, Høvik and the workshops on Wednesday and Thursday 6-7 February are held at the SIRIUS Centre at 5th Floor of Ole-Johan Dahls hus, Gaustadalléen 23B, 0373 Oslo.

Day 2 - Parallel ontology workshops

  • Time
    Title/Description
    Speaker
    Location
  • 09:00 AM -12:00 PM

    Day 2: Workshop 1: Ontology-based requirements management, with application to system engineering standards

    The workshop aims to shed light on the use of ontologies to express and verify requirements.  How can it aid requirements writing, and produce better, and more consistent sets of requirements?  How can requirements expressed in ontologies be used to verify asset models?

    Two representatives from acquirer and supplier organizations respectively, are invited to inform on how requirements and verification are managed in the industry today.  Additionally, a short presentation of the READI project will be given.

    The discussion should revolve around the feasibility and benefits of using ontologies to express and verify requirements - pro et con.

    Chair: Atle Kvalheim

  • 09:00 AM -12:00 PM

    Day 2 - Workshop 2: Ontology of the industrial plant: OWL models for lifecycle reasoning

    How can we model the industrial plant in ontology?  We want a faithful representation that supports automated reasoning over functional and material aspects for the entire plant lifecyle.  The workshop will focus on the crucial notion of "functional location" or "tag".  We address core modelling challenges, and demonstrate an approach to overcoming the lack of temporal reasoning in the OWL 2 language.

    Day 2 - Workshop 4: Maintenance - making industrial ontologies work for maintenance

    Many groups have developed ontologies for the maintenance domain, e.g. for work management, FMEA, predictive maintenance or as part of larger asset lifecycle management efforts.  This workshop brings together practitioners to identify ways in which we can share terminology, ontologies, axioms, and use cases to accelerate the uptake  of ontologies for querying maintenance data.  ROMAIN, a reference ontology for maintenance and current work by the IOF maintenance working group will be described.  Any participant with a maintenance ontology they wish to share is invited to contact the coordinator ahead of the workshop. The goal of the workshop is to identify collaborative opportunities to deliver business value through liberating information locked in maintenance and engineering databases.

    Day 2 - Workshop 5: Ontology patterns in practice

    A major bottleneck for the successful adoption of ontology-based information systems in industry is the construction and maintenance of large-scale ontologies. This tutorial will introduce Reasonable Ontology Templates (OTTR), a framework for ontology construction and maintenance based on efficient representation and instantiation of modelling patterns.

    The participants will learn how such ontology abstraction mechanisms can be beneficial for building, interacting with, and maintaining large-scale ontologies.  The tutorial will consist of presentations, plenary and individual exercises using open source tooling. Participants that wish to take part in the individual exercises should bring a laptop with Java 8 installed.

    Day 2 - Workshop 6: Ontologies for Manufacturing and Logistics

    The use of ontologies and semantic technologies in engineering applications, and more particularly in manufacturing and logistics, is gaining in importance and popularity, while at the same time it seems to generate a lot of controversy in discussions within scientific and engineering communities.  A number of Working Groups (WG) inside IOF have been created to share experiences in this field and the various challenges faced in using ontologies and related tools.  The goal of this workshop is to introduce current research topics in manufacturing and logistics discussed in the respective IOF WGs and the motivations for the development and application of ontologies and semantic technologies in this domain.

    Technical principles and outstanding technical challenges

    In order to meet the goals of interoperable and modular reference ontologies there needs to be consistency among the ontologies created.  In addition to ontological conistency there is also a need for a 'technical' consistency.  We will review the technical principles adopted by the IOF.
