The Ontology Outreach Advisory was officially founded today. It is non-profit organization with the purpose of fostering the application of ontologies in “the real world”. It has grown out of the KnowledgeWeb Network of Excellence. The inaugural executive council consists of Robert Meersman, Theo Mensen and Mustafa Jarrar; first meeting will be in Innbruck beginning of June.
As a founding member I will primarily contribute to the HR chapter, promoting the ontology developments and ontology-based techniques in the HR domain.
