OntoCAPE – A Re-Usable Ontology for Chemical Process Engineering
ESCAPE 20, Ischia, 06.06.2010
Aims and content OntoCAPE is a comprehensive ontology framework designed for multiple applications in the domain of computer-aided process engineering (CAPE). As the result of nearly two decades of research in knowledge representation and information modelling applied to chemical engineering, under the leadership of Prof Wolfgang Marquardt of RWTH Aachen University, OntoCAPE is intended to offer a useable and reusable knowledge model, laying out a solid semantic foundation for developing modern software solutions to support various tasks of process engineering.
Targeting on an audience with academic or industrial interests in modelling the information and knowledge of process engineering and/or applying information/knowledge models and semantics technologies in CAPE, this workshop is aimed to provide a clear articulation of the overall structure and the key components of OntoCAPE, to showcase the applications of OntoCAPE, and to offer insights on practical issues pertaining to the adoption and the adaptation of OntoCAPE by the CAPE community and beyond. As such, the audience will be able to gain a good understanding of the essence of OntoCAPE and also appreciate ways of how to make use of OntoCAPE to benefit their own work.
