CALL FOR PAPERS
9th OWL: Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED 2012)
Heraklion, Crete, May 27-28, 2012
Co-located with ESWC 2012
The aim of the OWL:Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED) is to establish an international forum for the OWL community, where practitioners in industry and academia, tool developers and others interested in OWL can describe real and potential applications, share experience and discuss requirements for language extensions/modifications. The workshops aim at bringing all these groups together in order to pool their expertise, measure the state of need against the state of the art, and set an agenda for research and deployment in order to incorporate OWL-based technologies into new applications.
This year, OWLED will be co-located with ESWC 2012 in Heraklion Crete. As usual, the workshop will try to encourage participants to work together and will give space for discussions of various topics as well as having presentation of submissions.
Papers about all aspects of OWL and extensions, applications, theory, methods and tools, are welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to,
• Application driven requirements for OWL
• Applications of OWL
• Experience of using OWL, in particular the OWL 2 Profiles
• Evaluation of OWL tools e.g. reasoners
• Benchmarks for OWL tools
• Performance and scalability issues and improvements
• Extensions to OWL
• OWL and Rules
• Implementation techniques and experience reports
• Non-standard reasoning service (implementation and requirements for)
• Ontology comprehension
• Tools, including editors, visualisation, parsers and syntax checkers
• Collaborative editing of ontologies
