Type d'événement: 

The International UDC Seminar 2011 titled Classification & Ontology: Formal Approaches and Access to Knowledge is organized by the UDC Consortium (UDCC).

In the field of artificial intelligence knowledge classification offers the potential to represent, formalise and model a view of a world. These knowledge frameworks, known as ontologies, are presented using formal logic and inference rules to support complex computer tasks.

The objective of the conference is to promote collaboration and exchange of expertise between different fields dealing with knowledge classifications: bibliographic, web and AI. The conference will provide an opportunity to hear more about formal ontologies, web ontologies and their relationship to bibliographic knowledge classifications.
