Ontologists and designers of all countries
and subject areas, join us!

Within the scientific discussion to try to get closer to the “Creator’s idea”, to understand and to explain the process of creation, development, self-organisation, modelling and designing of the future through the knowledge of the process of creating artefacts, evolution and selection.

The seminar will be held ONLINEThe main topic“Ontological approach to learning computer-aided design in Mechanical Engineering”Speaker:

Research field

Ontology of Designing as a scientific direction within the framework of computer science & engineering includes:
concepts analysis and thesaurus development; analysis of criteria and the models of designed object, methods and design scenarios; gathering and processing the information about the object as a system and its constituent elements.

Designing as a process and domain knowledge about the artefact is the subject of ontological analysis done by researchers and narrow specialists. Ontology of designing, its concepts and basic principles are invariant to the subject area, while design as an activity, is always object-oriented. Ontology of designing as a scientific discipline incorporates and generalises the experience from different domains.
