Association for Ontology Design & Patterns (ODPA)

Welcome to the main page of the Association for Ontology Design & Patterns (ODPA). The ODPA’s goals are to promote high-quality ontology design and engineering, with a focus on methods and tools arising out of ontology design patterns. In particular, the ODPA

  1. runs an annual workshop on ontology design and patterns (WOP),
  2. maintains the ontologydesignpatterns.org portal (this site),
  3. runs a public mailing list related to ontology design and patterns (a Google group), and
  4. engages in additional activities to promote ontology design & patterns, including the provision of dissemination materials, educational activities, and engagement with researchers and practitioners.
