ODBASE 2011 : The 10th International Conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics (ODBASE 2011)
Call For Papers
The 10th International Conference on
Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics (ODBASE 2011)
18-20 Oct 2011, Crete, Greece
Proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag
The conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics for Large Scale Information Systems (ODBASE'11) provides a forum on the use of ontologies and data semantics in novel applications. Of particular relevance to ODBASE 2011 are papers that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as databases, networking, mobile systems, artificial intelligence, information retrieval, and computational linguistics. We also encourage the submission of research and practical experience papers concerning scale issues in ontology management, information integration, and data mining, as well as papers that examine the information needs of various applications.
This year, in addition to its traditional focus on the management of semantically-rich information, ODBASE will have special themes on Semantics in Complex Event Processing and Semantics in the Internet of Things. Therefore, we encourage submissions in areas that connect semantics with the entire data flow cycle: data acquisition e.g. from sensors and mobile devices, data stream processing, e.g., filtering and event contextualization, to dissemination, e.g., publish/subscribe.
ODBASE'11 intends to draw a highly diverse body of researchers and practitioners by being part of the Federated conferences Event "On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems 2011 (OnTheMove'11)" that co-locates three conferences: ODBASE'11, DOA-SVI'11 (International Symposium on Secure Virtual Infrastructures), and CoopIS'11 (International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems).
ODBASE 2011 will consider two categories of papers: research and experience. Research papers must contain novel, unpublished results. Experience papers must describe existing, real-world scale systems; preference will be given to papers that describe software products or systems that are in wide experimental use.

Papers submitted to ODBASE'11 must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review for another workshop or conference.
All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All papers will be refereed by at least three members of the program committee, and at least two will be experts from industry in the case of practice reports. All submissions must be in English.
Submissions must not exceed 18 pages in the final camera-ready paper style. Submissions must be laid out according to the final camera-ready formatting instructions and must be submitted in PDF format.
The paper submission site is located at:
The final proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science). Author instructions can be found at:
Failure to comply with the formatting instructions for submitted papers will lead to the outright rejection of the paper without review.
Failure to commit to presentation at the conference automatically excludes a paper from the proceedings.
