(sorry for cross-posting, I think this is needed in this case)
I am happy to announce the start of the new W3C Automotive Ontology Community Group.
Please join us at
In this group, we want to advance the use of shared conceptual structures in the form of Web ontologies for better data interoperability in the automotive industry, and this at Web scale.
In particular, we want to develop
1. extension proposals for schema.org so that automotive information can be better understood by search engines
2. OWL Web ontologies for the automotive industry.
Also, we want to provide a forum for bringing together researchers and practitioners who are working on advancing the field.
This is meant as a more sustainable form of the previously informal Automotive Ontology Working Group at
We will gradually integrate both activities.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
PS: In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account, which you can obtain freely. W3C Membership is not required to join a Community Group.
