FOMI 2009 - 4TH Workshop on Formal Ontologies Meet Industry

www.loa-cnr.it/fomi2009

September 2, 2009 - Vicenza (Italy)

FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

In association with 10th European Conference on Knowledge Management (ECKM
2009)

http://www.academic-conferences.org/eckm/eckm2009/eckm09-home.htm

CONFERENCE AIMS

FOMI is an international forum where academic researchers and industrial
practitioners meet to analyze and discuss application issues related to
methods, theories, tools and applications based on formal ontologies. There
is today wide agreement that knowledge modeling and the semantic dimension
of information plays an increasingly central role in networked economy:
semantic-based applications aim to provide a framework for information and
knowledge sharing, reliable information exchange, meaning negotiation and
coordination between distinct organizations or among members of the same
organization.
Often, theoretical ideas seem very promising but their actual
implementation brings up unexpected problems and issues. The FOMI 09
Workshop aims to collect useful experiences and lessons learned by the
presentation of (1) experienced problems in ontology application, (2) new
insights on known problematic issues, (3) new results and observations in
ontology implementation, (4) lessons learned on the best way to apply
ontological methodologies to real situations.
FOMI 09 will facilitate open discussion and experience sharing. Very
similar problems arise in disparate ontology applications and an open
discussion helps to highlight commonalities and to spread ideas for possible
solutions. For this reason, FOMI welcomes researchers and practitioners that
embrace this perspective without restrictions on the domain they deal with:
business, medicine, engineering, finance, law, biology, geography,
electronics, etc.

CONFERENCE TOPICS (not exhaustive)

*problems in ontology application:*
- practical issues in using ontologies in the enterprise
- real cases of successful/unsuccessful use of ontology in business
- from legacy systems to the new ontology-driven systems

*ontology and knowledge management:*
- ontology and ontological methodologies in knowledge management;
- adaptation of ontologies for companies and organizations;
- ontology development and change within organizations;
- ontology effectiveness and evaluation
- ontology-driven representation of products, services, functionalities,
design, processes;
- ontologies for the know-how;
- ontologies for corporate knowledge;

*ontology in practice:*
- ontologies for electronic catalogs, e-commerce, e-government;
- ontologies for marketing;
- ontologies for finance;
- ontologies for engineering;
- ontologies for medical sciences;
- etc.

SUBMISSIONS AND DATES

Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two member of the Program
Committee and selected on the basis of technical quality, relevance of the
described experiences, and clarity of the presentation. In particular, we
insist that papers should (1) be written for a wide audience and (2) focus
on the problematic, successful, etc. ontological aspects. Following the
previous FOMI editions, we are considering publishing the proceedings of the
workshop in the FAIA series (IOS Press) or as a special issue of "Applied
Ontology".

* Format and other information will be added in the conference website
shortly.

* Deadlines:

- Paper Submission: April 2, 2009
- Acceptance Notification: May 23, 2009
- Camera Ready: June 23, 2009
