Riva del Garda, October 17th – 18th, 2014 co-located with ISWC 2014
http://www.w3.org/community/owled/workshop-2014/

Important Dates (All deadlines are Hawaii time)
• Paper submission due: July 30, 2014 EXTENDED TO AUGUST 4, 2014!!!
• Acceptance notifications: September 5, 2014
• Final papers due: September 18, 2014

OWLED is now also a Community Group at the W3C. Everyone is invited to participate:

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. OWL has become the representational model of choice for
supporting interoperability in many industries. This has been made possible thanks
also to the development of numerous OWL reasoning systems that efficiently deal with
both intensional (ontologies) and extensional (data) query answering. In this
edition we aim to bridge the gap with the reasoner evaluation community and welcome
the submission of papers describing challenging ontologies and/or tasks to be
represented in OWL and processed by OWL reasoners. It also welcomes proposals for
improving the OWL 2 standard.

This year, we would like to invite submissions of the following types of papers:

Technical papers:  All submissions must be in English and be no longer than 12 pages
(including references). Papers that exceed this limit will be rejected without
review.  These papers should present research, implementation experience, and
reports on the above and related topics. Space will be reserved for authors to
present their work at the workshop.

Short papers (4-6 pages, including references): These papers should present work
that is in an early stage and/or include publishable (novel) implemented systems
that are of interest to the OWLED community; and (in case of an implemented system),
can be demonstrated at the workshop.

All submissions must be must be in PDF, and must adhere to the Springer LNCS style.
For more details, see Springer’s Author Instructions:

Papers can be submitted online using the Easychair Conference system:

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=owled2014

Papers related to any 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, particularly: from industry, or for data integration, for service interoperability, for sophisticated/non-obvious inference, for knowledge discovery
  • and within specific domains such as: law, bio and biomed, eLearning
  • Experience of using OWL: notably, highly expressive ontologies or 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)
  • Explanation
  • Ontology comprehension and verbalisation
  • Multilingual OWL
  • Modelling issues
  • Tools, including editors, visualisation, parsers and syntax checkers
  • Collaborative editing of ontologies
  • Versioning of OWL ontologies
  • Alignment of OWL ontologies
  • Modularity
  • Query answering with OWL
  • SPARQL and OWL
  • Linked Data and OWL
