The 9th Workshop on Ontology Design and Patterns (WOP2018) will be held on October 8-9, 2018 in Monterey, CA, USA, in conjunction with the 17th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2018). The workshop website is at:

Call for papers:
We invite you to submit high-quality research papers (maximum 15 pages LNCS style) and short papers (maximum 5 pages LNCS style). The main topics include:

Ontology design patterns, analyses of ODP use, and analyses of pattern-based ontologies
Correspondence patterns for ontology matching and integration
Knowledge patterns and knowledge reengineering based on patterns
Antipatterns and their relations to ODPs
Methods and tools for developing high-quality ontologies, including ontology engineering by domain experts
Analyses of quality attributes in ontologies and ontology engineering, and quality assurance approaches for ontology engineering
Pattern-based ontology design and knowledge engineering
Pattern-based ontology evaluation and selection
Ontology pattern extraction
Pattern-based information extraction, ontology learning, and relation to NLP
Patterns and Linked data (usage, emerging patterns, pattern-driven data publishing, etc.)
Quality assurance for Linked Data vocabularies
Web semantics from a pattern perspective
Reasoning with, or using, patterns
Contextual reasoning and patterns as context
Pattern-based methods and methodologies for development of semantic applications
Patterns for streaming data and evolving knowledge, as well as processes and services
Patterns for Big Data integration, data lakes, conceptual modeling, ontology-based data access, and business intelligence
Patterns in semantic social networks, semantic wikis, semantic blogs
ODPs development and use in specific domains including geosciences, life sciences, digital humanities, cultural heritage, e-history, IoT, smart homes & cities, smart agriculture etc.

Call for Patterns:
We invite you to submit research results in the form of ontology design patterns (ODPs; 5-12 pages LNCS style), such as:

Content patterns
Structural patterns: logical and architecture patterns
Correspondence patterns: re-engineering and alignment patterns
