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.

Association for Computing Machinery Computing Classification System

"ACM's first classification system for the computing field was published in 1964. Then, in 1982, the ACM published an entirely new system. New versions based on the 1982 system followed, in 1983, 1987, 1991, and 1998. The 2012 scheme utilizes a new poly-hierarchical structure and a more in-depth approach than the 1998 version. It no longer uses the letter-and-number coding of the previous versions. The old scheme has been mapped to the new, and both the 1998 and 2012 terms are available on Citation Pages of all indexed articles in the ACM Digital Library.

Classification of HTTP-based APIs

"This table provides a classification of HTTP-based APIs. The classification achieves an explicit differentiation between the various kinds of uses of HTTP and provides a foundation to analyse and describe the system properties induced. Providing distinct names for the API 'styles' overcomes the useless situation where APIs are named 'RESTful' and 'not so RESTful','almost RESTful', or 'unRESTful'. An API either adheres to REST's interface constraints or it does not and if it does not, there is no sense in referring to 'REST' in the API's name.

Capability Taxonomy

"The following represents a linear or flat taxonomy of key Enterprise Capability Types or Categorizations that are used by Information Technology (IT) organizations, its professionals and their business constituents to help define, structure, organize, and understand the Capabilities that are required by an enterprise for successful operation. Such information (i.e. these Capability Categories) are key to the enterprise IT Discipline known as Capability Management and usually feeds other activities, such as design, data modeling, standards development and support.

Basic Formal Ontology

"BFO grows out of a philosophical orientation which overlaps with that of DOLCE and SUMO. Unlike these, however, it is narrowly focused on the task of providing a genuine upper ontology which can be used in support of domain ontologies developed for scientific research, as for example in biomedicine within the framework of the OBO Foundry. Thus BFO does not contain physical, chemical, biological or other terms which would properly fall within the special sciences domains.

Tesauro de Redes de Ordenadores

"En el desarrollo de este Tesauro se han incluido un total de 262 términos, siendo de ellos 167 Descriptores y 95 No Descriptores. Y en cuanto a las relaciones, se presentan 31 Relaciones de Asociación y 135 Relaciones de Jerarquía."

"In the development of this thesaurus, a total of 262 terms have been included, of which 167 are descriptors and 95 are descriptors, and 31 relations of association and 135 relations of hierarchy are presented."

Bioinformatics Web Services Ontology

"The Bioinformatics Web Services ontology (OBIws) is an ontology that extends the Ontology for Biomedical Investigations (OBI) to build an Ontology that supports consistent annotation of Bioinformatics Web services. We also consider reuse of terms available from the EMBRACE Data And Methods (EDAM) ontology. We follow a systematic methodology for enriching OBI with terms to support Web service Annotation. This process involves the design of ontology analysis diagrams for Web services and their subsequent analysis to discover terms that need to be added to the ontology.


"BioPAX is a standard language that aims to enable integration, exchange, visualization and analysis of biological pathway data. Specifically, BioPAX supports data exchange between pathway data groups and thus reduces the complexity of interchange between data formats by providing an accepted standard format for pathway data. It is an open and collaborative effort by the community of researchers, software developers, and institutions."
