The OntoPortal Alliance is a consortium of research and infrastructure teams (and one SME) dedicated to promoting semantic and ontology services—in science and more—based on the open, collaboratively developed OntoPortal open-source software. Teams in the Alliance develop and maintain several openly accessible semantic resource repositories. This includes BioPortal, the primary and historical source of OntoPortal code, but also AgroPortal, EcoPortal, MedPortal and MatPortal.
The OntoPortal Alliance announced the first edition of the OntoPortal Workshop, which is taking place in Montpellier, France.
Several partners from FAIR-IMPACT, INRAE, LifeWatch, eSDF, CNRS/DataTerra, took part in this edition.
The 2022 workshop's main goal is to consolidate the OntoPortal Alliance organization and shared agenda.
External parties that are interested in re-using and/or participating to the development of OntoPortal, or more generally interested in the management of ontologies and other types of semantic resources (terminologies, vocabularies, thesauri, etc.) are welcome to reach out to us for more information.
A public online track was held on Wednesday, September 28th from 14h00 to 18h00 (CET) composed of several sessions:
- 14h-14h30: General presentation of OntoPortal (the software, the use cases, the repositories and their uses, etc.).
- 14h30-16h: User panel with OntoPortal installations developers/maintainers and some of their representative users.
- 16h15-17h45: Open tutorial “Setting up your appliance” (for those who want condensed technical information on how to quickly deploy their own ontology repository).
- 17h45-18h: Wrap up.
