Fundamentals of ontology engineering course

INCF and the Human Brain Project invites you to participate in a 2-day course on the fundamentals of ontology engineering.


Join INCF and the Human Brain Project at the University of Oslo on January 28-29 for a hands-on introductory-level course aimed at anyone using, or contributing to technical vocabularies, knowledge bases, or ontologies, as well as anyone interested in knowledge engineering or ontology engineering.
Participants will be given the theoretical foundations as well as practical experience to begin building Web Ontology Language (OWL) ontologies using the Protégé-OWL tools. Basic coding skills are needed in order to get the most out of this course.
In addition, the Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF) Ontology, which is used in the HBP KnowledgeGraph for data curation, will be introduced as a resource for standardizing annotation and classification of neuroscience knowledge, methods, and resources.
