Alion Science and Technology and the National Center for Ontological Research (NCOR, University at Buffalo) will host a two-day "Ontology Driven Implementation of Semantic Services for the Enterprise Environment (ODISSEE)" Workshop. ODISSEE aims to foster awareness of and collaboration between disparate information-sharing efforts across the US Government. The workshop will feature individual presentations on information-sharing development, as well as panel sessions on ontology and data vocabulary. This workshop supports the Joint Planning and Development Office (JPDO) information sharing initiatives. Information sharing is at the heart of the transformation from the current state of the National Airspace System (NAS) to NextGen capabilities in 2025 in areas such as unmanned aircraft systems, integrated surveillance and weather.
Identify and catalogue the various semantic technology efforts across the Federal government.
Identify, evaluate, and catalogue standard information-exchange models, such as Universal Core (UCore) and National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) and semantic models of common domains, including time, geography, and events.
Explore the use of ontologies to enable information exchanges within a service-oriented architecture (SOA), improve discoverability of services, and align disparate data standards and message models.
Coordinate ontology development across diverse Communities of Interest (COIs) to ensure extensibility, interoperability, and reusability.
