Workshop description
Nowadays, computational ontologies are commonly used as conceptual
models of information systems (IS) created in different domains, such
as: engineering, law, social sciences, biomedicine, humanities, business
enterprise, geography, library science etc. They are used both in the
design and the exploitation phases of the IS's life. However, what can
be largely observed, the main drawback of the majority of such
ontologies is their insufficient ontic expressiveness and lack of a good
foundations. Thus, the question arises: is the ontological engineering
mature enough to apply the sophisticated theoretical solutions and
propose methodologies and tools enabling to create both practical and
expressive ontologies for everyday use? We call such ontologies shortly:

The aim of the workshop is to gather researchers and practitioners
interested in answering the posed question. Particularly, we single out
three main scientific areas, for which research feedback is expected.

The first domain of interest addresses the design and application of
ontological structures that are strongly influenced by philosophy, but
are still reasonably applicable. The area includes foundational approach
driven ontology creation strategies for concrete domains and applications.

The linguistic investigations concerning national and multi-language
semantic lexicons provide, among other resources, also the top-level
ontologies. The second considered research area addresses the problem of
using such ontologies (possibly accompanied by other linguistic
resources) to build well-founded and tractable domain conceptual models.

Most ontology-building approaches proposed by computer engineers employ
algorithimcs (i.e. data mining, machine learning etc.). Even though they
benefit from the automation at the same time they suffer from the bad
(ontic) quality of obtained ontologies. Thus, issues concerned with
bridging the gap between bottom-up automatically engineered ontologies
and foundational/top-level manually created ones, constitute the third
scientific area we are strongly interested in.
