3 3 Why this Workshop? 2004 Face to Face Theme of Layers, Levels, and Limits: (Business Objects in Transition) Peter P. Yims tensions trigger Expansion towards Ontologizing a Body of Knowledge developed by the Ontolog Forum over 3 years Significant penetration of ontologies into business practices

4 4 Workshop Objectives This workshop is targeted at those individuals who are concerned about the stability and alignment of formalized ontologies with the real world, especially in the context of ontologizing community-of-practice knowledge bases. This workshop will focus, not only on formalized ontologies, but on the relationships among the natural ontologies which exist within whole systems and efforts to create informal and formalized representations of them. The development of formalized ontologies is dependent, in large measure, on the nurturing and understanding of shared conceptualizations. The robustness of these natural ontologies can be expected to be critical to the successful development, implementation, and acceptance of ontology- based standards, especially in such areas as –health care, –emergency response, –e-government, and –service-oriented architectures
