Scott McClellan presents at 20th RDA Plenary’s Session on Materials Science Ontologies

Scott McClellan, a second year doctoral student, presented research results to the “Data representation in materials and chemicals based on harmonised domain ontologies” birds of a feather group at the Research Data Alliance’s 20th Plenary meeting in Gothenburg, Sweden on March 21-23, 2023. His presentation, titled “Along the Border: Term Overlap Among 5 Matportal Ontologies,” focused on term overlap among a subset of ontologies maintained at the Matportal repository. It looked at how term matching algorithms for materials science semantic artifacts differed when locating terminological or URI results. His presentation stemmed from prior research done with Drs. Yuan An and Jane Greenberg and fellow graduate student Xintong Zhao. [Slides]
