=====================================
OWLED 2011

OWL: Experiences and Directions
The Eighth International Workshop
June 5-6, San Francisco, California, USA
http://www.webont.org/owled/2011/

Co-located with
2011 Semantic Technology Conference (SemTech 2011)
http://semtech2011.semanticweb.com/
=======================================

The adoption of the W3C OWL Web Ontology Language in real-world  
applications continues to grow as the research and tools for OWL  
mature. The new version, OWL 2, has been a positive factor in this  
direction. The OWL: Experiences and Directions (OWLED) workshop series  
aims to bring users, developers and researchers from academia and  
industry together to describe applications of OWL, to share  
experience, and to discuss extensions to the language for satisfying  
further application requirements. This year the OWLED workshop will be  
held June 5-6 in San Francisco, California and be co-located with the  
2011 Semantic Technology Conference (SemTech). For more information or  
to offer sponsorship, please send us a note at owled2011@easychair.org


**** CALL FOR TUTORIALS & DEMONSTRATIONS ****
Deadline: January 10, 2011
Submit to: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=owled2011
We invite proposals (maximum 4 pages) for 90 minute tutorials or  
demonstrations that cover basic, intermediate and advanced OWL-related  
topics or practical approaches in using OWL that would be of interest  
to the OWLED and SemTech communities. Proposals should provide the  
title, intended audience, skills developed, motivation, objectives,  
detailed outline, instructor biography and prior tutorial/ 
demonstration/teaching experience.

**** CALL FOR PAPERS ****
February 28, 2011     Title and abstract due
March 7, 2011         Paper submission due
Submit to:  http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=owled2011

- Research Track
Research papers (maximum 10 pages; LNCS style) should clearly describe  
original, significant research pertaining to OWL.

- Application Track
Application papers (maximum 4 pages; LNCS style) may present novel  
practical approaches in using OWL, or may employ scientific methods  
(qualitative and/or quantitative) to understand in greater detail the  
application of OWL in real-world systems.

- Statement of Interest
A statement of interest (maximum 2 pages; LNCS style) can be about  
ideas, solutions, methods, products, research projects or  
implementation experience pertaining to OWL.

Topics
-------
Papers about all aspects of OWL and extensions, applications, theory,
methods and tools, are welcome at the workshop; including but not
limited to the following topics:

- 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
- Experience reports on using OWL, OWL 2 and its profiles
- OWL ontologies, particularly if highly expressive or large scale
- Implementation techniques for OWL and related languages
- OWL based information systems
- Query answering with OWL
- Performance and scalability experiences
- Bridges between knowledge engineering and OWL
- Non-standard inference services, including:
   * explanations
   * static verification
   * modularity
- Tools for OWL, including:
   * collaborative editing and versioning
   * parsers and syntax checkers
   * high performance reasoners
   * visualization tools
- Extensions to OWL, including:
   * extended constructors for datatypes, properties or classes
   * constraints, rules
   * non-monotonic, probabilistic or fuzzy extensions
   * temporal and spatial extensions
