 FINAL CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
---------------------------------------------------

 Third Workshop on the use of
 Semantic Web Technology for
 Mobile and Ubiquitous Applications
 (SWUMA 2012)

 http://swuma.ecs.soton.ac.uk/

 November 11 or 12, 2012 (TBC)
 ISWC Workshop Program, Boston, MA USA

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW
=================

In order for pervasive and mobile platforms to use large and complex
ontologies, online algorithms are required to fragment ontologies
on-the-fly. Resource limited platforms which are required to work in
real-time environments can reuse ontological definitions to build their
own vocabulary for their domains. Traditional ontology evolution
approaches are not suitable for this purpose because they focus on
creating sound and complete ontologies. We call for satisficing approaches
that provide a 'good enough answer' while limiting overhead costs, because
resource limited platforms would not be able to store, use or infer over
large complete ontologies. In this workshop we ask, how can we use large
ontologies in constrained environments and how can we build domain
specific ontologies for resource limited platforms? We are particularly
interested in research focused on (a) automatic online evolution
algorithms, (b) scalable ontology evolution algorithms, (c) generating
just-in-time ontology modules and fragments, and (d) evaluation
frameworks. This workshop aims to gather research covering the above
mentioned challenges, and bringing together researchers and foster future
collaborations.
