Dr. Mara Abel, Professor of UFRGS and Endeeper co-founder, is co-author of the paper "What is a well?" in an Ontology-Based Standard.

  • Title: "What is a well?" in an Ontology-Based Standard
  • Date: 16 May 2017
  • Session 2: Plenary - Salon A-D
  • Time: 1:45PM - 2:15PM
  • Location: Houston Marriott Westchase Hotel - Houston, TX - USA
  • Authors: Mara Abel (Informatics Institute - UFRGS), Joel Carbonera (IBM Research Center) & Luan Garcia (Informatics Institute - UFRGS)


The presentation will formalize the concepts defined in the PPDM document "What is a well?" and presents them through
a well-founded domain ontology. It also will explain the process of analysis and ontology development, taking as a
starting point the document definitions and an expert able to disambiguate the hidden ontological meaning of the terminology.

Contact us if you would like to schedule some time during the conference for some private discussions about geological knowledge management.
