Registration open for Semantic Interoperability workshop!

Simple Semantic Framework Ontologies—Tools—Web Services: Alone, each is powerful. Combined in a system, they can form a comprehensive Semantic Framework. MMI, in collaboration with our partners, has developed a set of tools into a user-friendly system for data providers and users. This Semantic Interoperability workshop is your opportunity to learn from our efforts.

The Marine Metadata Interoperability project, the QARTOD-to-OGC project, and the Gulf of Mexico Coastal Ocean Observing System are excited to announce that registration is now open for the Ocean Observing Systems Semantic Interoperability! workshop, to be held November 17-20, 2008 in Boulder, Colorado.

This limited-attendance technical workshop will culminate a series of two meetings on semantic interoperability in the ocean sciences. As a participant, you will be presented with the tools, services, and procedures you need to make your vocabularies interoperable. In this unprecedented workshop, MMI will present a set of simple-to-use tools and services as part of a common Semantic Framework, developed by MMI and its collaborations. The workshop provides a top-to-bottom description of semantic interoperability, its application to real-world tasks, and the technical details of working with the tools to make it happen.
