Protege-OWL Short Course Preparation

The Protege-OWL Short Course is a hands-on course. The purpose of this wiki page is to give detailed instructions for installing the required and optional software components that will be used during the course.

We highly recommend that you install required software on your laptops before the start of the course in order to avoid holding up sessions for software installation issues.

Please note that we do not provide laptops for participants.

If you have questions or problems with software installation, please contact the short course organizers.

Graphviz (optional)

During the ontology visualization session on Thursday afternoon, we plan to demo the OWLViz plug-in, which depends on a 3rd-party drawing library called "Graphviz" from AT&T Research. If you think you would like to experiment with this plug-in, please navigate to the Graphviz website to download and install the latest stable version of their software:
