 Mission:    Contacts:

To enable development of ontology-related technology by:

  • bringing together the expertise in the semantics of software with the expertise for knowledge representation, consistency checking, and knowledge-processing, in order to leverage each otherís technologies

  • reaching out to domain-oriented groups at the OMG, and advise them how to adopt appropriate ontology technologies as a means to maximize the reuse, improve the rigor, and eliminate the inconsistencies of their contributions

  • capturing OMG's existing domain knowledge to maximize reuse of experience gained from developing domain-oriented APIs

  • developing working relationships among OMG activities and related activities, such as the semantic web and agent communities

  • gathering together prior work and developing white papers, languages, and mappings (profiles and MOF metamodels)
