OpenRiskNet/NanoCommons ontology meeting

Workshop, Hackathon (co-organised by OpenRiskNet and NanoCommons)
13 – 14 Dec 2018 / Brussels, BE
Category: Workshops
Posted by: Anastasios.Papadiamantis

Activity details

The goal of this meeting is to get a picture of the ongoing ontology activities in the toxicology area, harmonise these efforts and the developed ontologies therein, and extend the existing toxicology ontology to support OpenRiskNet and NanoCommons tasks. Part of this will be the ontological annotation of OpenRiskNet Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) as used on their cloud ( Other goals include extension of the ontology with missing terms (if any), potentially write up guidance documents, and annotation of data sets (possible via OpenRiskNet data APIs). The detailed information and agenda are available below. The direct registration link:
