Vocabularies & Common Data Elements (VCDE) Workspace

This Cross Cutting Workspace is responsible for evaluating and integrating systems for vocabulary and ontology content development, as well as software systems for content delivery. They are also responsible for developing standards for the representation of ontologies and vocabularies used throughout caBIG®, as well as assessments of existing systems presented as caBIG® compatible. This Workspace also has limited responsibility for vocabulary and ontology content development, when specific and required content does not exist in a form usable by caBIG®.
