OpenRiskNet/NanoCommons ontology meeting

Hackathon, Workshop (co-organized by OpenRiskNet)
13 – 14 Dec 2018 / Brussels, BE

Activity details

The goal of this meeting is to get a picture of the ongoing ontology activities in the toxicology area, harmonize these efforts and the developed ontologies therein, and extend the existing toxicology ontology to support OpenRiskNet and NanoCommons tasks. Part of this will be the ontological annotation of OpenRiskNet Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) as used on their cloud. Other goals include extension of the ontology with missing terms (if any), potentially write up guidance documents, and annotation of data sets (possible via OpenRiskNet data APIs). The detailed information and agenda are available below.


1. What ontologies are out there and can we combine them to a toxicology application ontology.

2. Data and software schema: How much ontology do we need to annotate complex services.

3. Ontology Hacking.

The complete agenda is attached below.
