                      2nd and Final Call for Papers
       1st Workshop on Ontology Patterns (WOP2009)

                              October 25th, 2009
    Westfields Conference Center near Washington, DC

Submission deadline extended - NEW deadline August 16

This workshop provides an arena for proposing and discussing good
practices, patterns, pattern-based ontologies, systems etc. The aim is
to broaden the pattern community that will develop its own “language”
for discussing and describing relevant problems and their solutions.
The workshop will be held in conjunction with ISWC2009 on October
25th. It will be a full-day workshop consisting of three parts;
papers, posters, and “pattern writing” sessions.


The main aim of the workshop is to discuss and collect best practices
from different perspectives and communities dealing with the Semantic
web. Papers will be published in the online CEUR-workshop proceedings.
Original research papers and poster papers (including position papers
and descriptions of work in progress) are invited to consider the
following (non exhaustive) list of topics:

* Good practices of ontology design
* Good practices for Linked Data and related applications
* Good practices for hybridization of semantic web and NLP techniques
* Good Practices and Patterns of semantic social networks, semantic
wikis, semantic blogs
* Good Practices of Semantic Web in general

* Ontology Design Patterns and Linked Data
* Ontology Patterns and Microformats
* Patterns for using different vocabularies together e.g. FOAF, SIOC,  
DC, etc.
* Web semantics from a pattern perspective

* Software patterns for semantic web applications
* Interaction patterns and the Semantic Web
* Pattern-based methodologies for Semantic Web ontologies and software
* Application Profiles
* Domain specific applications based on patterns and successful stories

* Ontology design patterns (ODPs) for specific knowledge domains e.g.
multimedia, fishery and agriculture, user profiling, business  
modeling, etc.
* Collaboration patterns in ontology design and engineering
* Correspondence patterns for ontology matching and integration
* Lexico-syntactic patterns
* Reasoning patterns (workflows made of reasoning steps for addressing
specific goals)
* Processes and services - process patterns
* Re-engineering patterns for conceptual models, folksonomies,
lexicons, thesauri
* Problem solving methods and patterns

* Tools support for pattern-based knowledge engineering
* Pattern-based ontology evaluation and selection
* Automatic ontology construction (ontology learning) based on patterns
* Contextual reasoning and patterns as context
* Knowledge patterns and knowledge re-engineering based on patterns
* Pattern-based information extraction

* Quality evaluation of patterns
* Benefits of ontology patterns and knowledge patterns
