Academic Event Ontology (AEON)
AEON is currently a work in progress and far from a final product, as can be seen by the version number. It's not ready for productive systems.
The application ontology of the TIB project ConfIDent, will hopefully serve as meaningful input for AEON, due to its data driven development. This entails importing academic event metadata from donators and existing datasets, such as OpenResearch, EventKG, DBLP and NASA/ADS, in order to identify the needed classes, object and data properties by analysing their relevance in these datasets.
Additional analysis is needed regarding terms and entities of related ontologies, such as:
An academic event is a gathering of scholars and researchers to prsent their work, hear others present, and discuss the latest developments within their field. Some examples of academic events include conferences, symposia, workshops, colloquia, talks, hackathons, meet-ups, seminars, and forums.
The Academic Event Ontology (AEON) is used to represent information regarding academic events. The ontology supports the identification, development, management, evaluation, and impact assessment of events, components of events and event series, as well as identification and reuse of works presented or developed at events. The ontology is independent of knowledge, creative domain, or topics related to events. AEON is focused on events and assumes the representation of many entities associated with events such as attendees, locations, academic works, datetimes, and processes are defined in compatible ontologies.
Ontology Competency Questions
AEON seeks to represent information about events to answer the questions below as examples. Many additional questions regarding events should be answerable.
