The ontology group meets on alternate Thursdays at 10 AM US Eastern time.

The group discuss the representation of scholarship as an ontology, study and incorporate work of others, to create a model that can be used across systems and applications.  Developers stop by to consider how the ontology might be used in software.  The discussions are always open.  Everyone is welcome to attend.  Some of the issues that have been discussed recently include:

From time to time, the group will spin off a work group to work on a particular problem.  And this may result in a proposed design for some extension or revision of the ontology.

If you are interested, please join the ontology channel on Slack (join VIVO Slack here: http://bit.y/vivo-slack ), and the interest group meetings.
