Kinetic Simulation Algorithm Ontology

"To enable the accurate and repeatable execution of a computational simulation task, it is important to identify both the algorithm used and the initial setup. These minimum information requirements are described by the MIASE guidelines. Since the details of some algorithms are not always publicly available, and many are implemented only in a limited number of simulation tools, it is crucial to identify alternative algorithms with similar characteristics that may be used to provide comparable results in an equivalent simulation experiment.

Information Artifact Ontology

"The Information Artifact Ontology (IAO) is a new ontology of information entities, originally driven by work by the OBI digital entity and realizable information entity branch.
An information artifact is, loosely, a dependent continuant or its bearer that is created as the result of one or more intentional processes. Examples: uniprot, the english language, the contents of this document or a printout of it, the temperature measurements from a weather balloon."

Comparative Data Analysis Ontology

"CDAO stands for "Comparative Data Analysis Ontology", a formalization of concepts and relations relevant to evolutionary comparative analysis, such as phylogenetic trees, OTUs (operational taxonomic units) and compared characters (including molecular characters as well as other types). CDAO is being developed by scientists in biology, evolution, and computer science. In general, ontologies are designed to support formal or automated reasoning. Our aim in developing CDAO is to provide the language support for representing, and reasoning over, phylogenetic data and metadata.

Ontology of Data Mining

"The domain of data mining (DM) deals with analyzing different types of data. The data typically used in data mining is in the format of a single table, with primitive datatypes as attributes. However, structured (complex) data, such as graphs, sequences, networks, text, image, multimedia and relational data, are receiving an increasing amount of interest in data mining. A major challenge is to treat and represent the mining of different types of structured data in a uniform fashion.

Regensburger Verbundklassifikation

"Die Regensburger Verbundklassifikation ist eine Aufstellungssystematik zur sachlichen Erschließung von Beständen an wissenschaftlichen Bibliotheken. In den 1960er Jahren entstand die RVK an der Universitätsbibliothek Regensburg, entwickelt für große Freihandbestände in einem neuen einschichtigen Bibliothekssystem. Daraus entstand Schritt für Schritt der größte Klassifikationsverbund im deutschsprachigen Raum.

"The Regensburger Verbundklassifikation (RVK) is a classification scheme for academic libraries. In the 1960s the University of Regensburg Library developed the RVK as an in-house classification scheme for its own extensive holdings on the open shelves. Since then the RVK evolved step by step into a classification which is currently developed cooperatively by a network of 130 academic libraries and institutions in Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland.

IPTC NewsCodes

"For the news industry - but also far beyond - it is a strict requirement being able to assert something about the content of a news item, to apply so called metadata. This could be achieved either by free-text human language (e.g. by a headline or a caption) or by codes, NewsCodes. Codes have the advantage that they can be easily shared among users and as each code requires an explicit and comprehensive definition not only the codes but also their semantics can be shared among users.


"Die Oberbegriffsdatei (OBG) ist eine hierarchisierte Sammlung von Objektbezeichnungen für kulturhistorische Museen. Sie ist in 45 Hauptgruppen und darunter liegende Untergruppen aufgeteilt.
