Lattice of Theories
Standard Upper Ontology Working Group (SUO WG)
This is the Home Page for the IEEE Standard Upper Ontology
Working Group Work Programme to develop a 4D Ontology intended
for inclusion within a lattice of theories framework developed
through the Information Flow Framework (IFF) Work Programme.
The motion approving this Work Programme is given below.
The Standard Upper Ontology group approves the objective and
work programme set out below and encourages its members to participate
in the programme, developing and reviewing the programme deliverables.
To develop a 4 dimensional ontology and include it as a component
within the Information Flow Framework.
- Develop an ontology based on the 4-dimensional paradigm.
Initial material to act as a start point is contained in ISO/FDIS
The approach will be to develop the ontology as reusable components,
- Make the 4-Dimensional Ontology available as components within
the Information Flow Framework and develop mappings to other
ontologies within the framework.
The motion was formally moved on 20th September 2003. The
