This tutorial will cover major concepts and technologies related to ontology design using W3C recommendation RDF/OWL and ISO standard Topic Maps(TM). As for RDF/OWL, the tutorial will explain distributed data management with RDF, RDF schema, and elementary and advanced use of OWL. Protégé will be used to have hands-on experience of designing a RDF/OWL ontology. The latter session will include major concepts, syntax, tools, and applications of TM. It will also cover TM ontology design methodology using TM ontology design tools. Participants will be able to see the difference between thesaurus-driven knowledge management vs ontology-driven management. The Ontopia Knowledge Suite (OKS) will be employed to design a TM ontology. Each session will require 3-4 hours to complete.
