Long-Term Goals

This workshop is leading toward these long-term science objectives:

  • finding science data, without knowing the vocabulary used to label it
  • merging science data from different data sources
  • connecting the vocabularies used to find and label science data
  • creating reference vocabularies which can be used for new data sets
  • allowing more sophisticated and automated discovery and analyses

Immediate Goals

The workshop's immediate goals are as follows:

  • Identify recommended discovery and markup [overall domain] ontologies from exisiting [overall domain] vocabularies.
  • Develop relations between the recommended discovery and markup vocabularies.
  • Develop crosswalks from other vocabularies to recomended vocabularies
  • Demonstrate the use of semantic mediation via ontologies with a web service application
