===========================================================
1st International Workshop on

Ontology Engineering in a Data-Driven World – OEDW 2012

Full-day workshop at EKAW 2012 (Galway, Ireland)

October 8th or 9th, 2012

http://granvia.dia.fi.upm.es/oedw2012/
===========================================================

* Motivation*

- Is the current data-driven world going to kill ontologies?
- Are we navigating towards a shallow Web of Data?
 
The purpose of the initial edition of the 1st International Workshop on
Ontology Engineering in a Data-driven World is to discuss challenges and
opportunities for the Ontology Engineering discipline in the context of the
further evolving Linked Data success story.

To achieve this we call for papers which deal with topics such as
guidelines, methods, and tools for Linked Data engineering; methods for
ontology reuse in the Linked Data context, methods and techniques for
ontology mapping in the Linked Data context, guidelines, methods, and tools
for database to RDF mappings; life cycle management in the context of Linked
Data; creation of knowledge out of (Linked) Open Data; ontology
repositories; empirical findings and statistics about ontologies underlying
Linked Data; case studies on Ontology Engineering in the context of Linked
Data; amongst others.

As a special feature we also call for position papers that address the two
aforementioned core questions of the workshop and which can be seen
controversial from either an Ontology Engineering perspective or a Linked
Data perspective.

* Topics*

The topics of submissions to this workshop are not strictly limited but
should primarily focus on:

- Guidelines, methods, and tools for Linked Data engineering
- Methods for ontology/vocabulary reuse in the Linked Data context
- Methods and techniques for ontology/vocabulary mapping and alignment in
the Linked Data context
- Guidelines, methods, and tools for RDB to RDF mappings
- Life cycle management in the context of Linked Data
- Creation of knowledge out of Linked Open Data
- Ontology/vocabulary repositories
- Empirical findings and statistics about ontologies underlying Linked Data
- Case studies on Ontology Engineering in the context of Linked Data

* Important dates *

Paper submission deadline: August 10th, 2012
Notification of acceptance: September 5th, 2012
Camera ready submission deadline: September 14th, 2012

* Contributions *

Paper submission must be electronic via EasyChair
(http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=oedw2012). The papers should be
written in English, follow Springer LNCS format, and be submitted in PDF.
Submissions of regular research papers must not exceed 10 pages. Submissions
of position papers must not exceed 4 pages.

Proceedings will be distributed to the participants during the workshop, and
made available online as CEUR-WS proceedings.

If the number of high-quality submissions is adequate, we will pursue
publishing the proceedings as a journal special issue.
