Title: Archeology for Ontology Patterns 

Abstract: Ontology Patterns for the semantic web are closest in spirit to software patterns, e.g. [Gamma, et al, 1997]. They are, or should be, motivated by design experience, not philosophical tradition. The software pattern community was launched into prominence as the result of an effort in "software archeology": digging through existing software, observing and cataloging different solution methods, generalizing and classifying them in a sensible framework, and publishing the result. In this talk I will argue for an archeological and less theoretical approach to ontology patterns, with examples

WOP 2010 is the second edition in a series of yearly workshops addressing the emerging topic of ontology patterns as best practices, related to the ontologydesignpatterns.org initiative [3]. Patterns need to be shared by a community in order to provide a common language and stimulate pattern usage and development. Hence, the aim of this workshop is twofold; both providing an arena for proposing and discussing good practices, patterns, pattern-based ontologies, systems etc., and broadening the pattern community that will develop its own “language” for discussing and describing relevant problems and their solutions.
It will be a full-day workshop consisting of three parts; paper presentations, posters/demos, and “pattern writing” sessions. The poster session will feature both paper posters and pattern posters, i.e. presentations of patterns submitted through ontologydesignpatterns.org. For the pattern writing session ontology design problems will be submitted and voted for (by the PC and the ODP portal quality committee). The problems considered most interesting will be treated during the workshop, to provide the draft of a solution.

Looking forward to meet you in Shanghai.
