Need a reason to go to Italy? Okay, need a good reason? The Second International Workshop on Ontologies meet Advanced Information Systems (OAIS) will be held September 1-4, 2013 in Genoa, Italy.

CORDIS brought this news to our attention in their article, “Second International Workshop on Ontologies Meet Advanced Information Systems (OAIS), Genoa, Italy.” We know the value that ontologies provide for managing data. Ontologies and other controlled vocabularies help ensure that machine-assisted or fully automated indexing is comprehensive, regardless of what you are indexing.

This event will be an opportunity for attendees to exchange ideas and discuss the contribution of ontology for designing high quality information systems, as well as present new research and technological developments that use ontology all across the life cycle of information systems.
