Semantic Data and Knowledge Management for Chemicals and Materials Industries

A partnership meeting organised by the OntoTrans project

17 April 2024

Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining (IOM3)

297 Euston Road, London NW1 3AD

We are delighted to announce our Semantic Materials Workshop.

The success of digital transformation projects towards semantic data management requires a range of skills and partners all working together. At this expert meeting, partners from the OntoTrans project would like to discuss potential collaborations with a wide range of solution providers and interested parties from the chemical and materials industries.

This workshop will include a full day of presentations and discussions ranging from industrial requirements to implementations of semantic data management systems.

Attendees will hear about industrial challenges and directions from Johnson Matthey, Michelin and BASF; ontology developments and applications in materials, including batteries from Univ Bologna, SINTEF and Fraunhofer ISC; and solutions from SciBite, Semantic Partners and metaphacts.

OntoTrans partners plan to offer consulting services to build and implement Elementary Multiperspective Material Ontology (EMMO)-based ontologies that enable materials- and chemistry-based industries to reap the benefits of semantic knowledge management at the enterprise level and enter the era of “active metadata”.

Why use semantic data management?

Data management has evolved considerably over the last 30 years. Semantics and semantic technologies enable us to carry out unified analyses of data from different data sources and offer augmented analyses, recommendations and AI orchestration.

Knowledge management systems reflect and maintain enterprise knowledge that can be integrated with knowledge and data beyond the enterprise, which supports open and co-innovation.

Ontologies are used successfully in finance (FIBO ontology), oil and gas production (ISO15926), and bioinformatics (Gene ontology), along with chemistry domain ontologies. However, semantics in the area of materials science and manufacturing is underexploited.

A number of EU projects have contributed to an ontology framework that incorporates fundamental principles and concepts from physics, chemistry and materials science: the EMMO.

The OntoTrans project has built a semantic knowledge system based on EMMO that enables users to represent innovation challenges and connect them to a range of data sources, including data from modelling and simulation.

Please note: This workshop is an invitation-only event.

To make the most of the day, attendance in person is recommended. Online participation will be limited to presentations only. In-person registration closes Wednesday 3 April 2024.
