Final Call for Papers
3rd Workshop on Ontology Patterns (WOP2012)

November 11 or 12th, 2012
Collocated with ISWC2012 - Boston (US)

This workshop provides an arena for proposing and discussing ontology
patterns, solutions to relevant problems of research and practice in the Semantic
Web, ranging over the three pillars of schemas, data, and natural language semantics.
The aim is to broaden the pattern community that will develop its own “language”
for discussing and describing ontology patterns.

The workshop will be held in conjunction with ISWC2012 on November 11 or
12th, 2012. It will be a half-day workshop consisting of two parts; papers and
pattern posters.

---- Research and Position Paper Topics -----

The main aim of the workshop is to discuss and collect solutions to
recurrent problems, i.e. ontology patterns, that matter to researchers and
practitioners of the Semantic Web field, and that impact on ontology design and
engineering.
Original research papers and position papers are invited to consider the
following (non exhaustive) list of topics:

* Ontology Design Patterns (ODPs) and pattern-based ontology design
* ODPs for specific knowledge domains e.g. multimedia, fishery and
agriculture, user profiling, business modeling, etc.
* Anti-patterns and their relations to ODPs
* ODPs for interacting with data
* ODPs for expressing relevance of data in context
* Collaborative ontology design and 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

* 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

* 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

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

* 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
* Cognitive aspects of knowledge patterns
