About

The UK Ontology Network is an informal and voluntary coordination between people based in the United Kingdom and working in the area of ontology and ontology related technology. Members of the network include people from all areas of science and industry and across all disciplines. The mission of the network is:

  1. to improve cooperation between the members of UK organizations engaged in ontology activites
  2. to encourage collaboration between those presently working in, and those potentially interested in, ontology development, research and application of ontologies within the UK
  3. to expose the work of those based in the UK working in ontology and give the community better visibility on a world stage

If you would like to engage with this network please join the Google Group mailing list at the following URL:
