********* Final Call for Patterns *****************

3rd Workshop on Ontology Patterns (WOP2012)

http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/WOP:2012

A half-day workshop in conjunction with ISWC 2012

November 11 or 12 (the exact day will be decided soon)

Boston, USA


***************************************************************************

***Extended*** submission deadline: August 10th, 2012 (11:59pm Hawaii time)

***************************************************************************


This workshop provides an arena for proposing and discussing good and 
bad practices, patterns, pattern-based ontologies, systems, etc. The aim 
is to broaden the pattern community that will develop its own “language” 
for discussing and describing relevant problems and their solutions. The 
workshop will be held in conjunction with ISWC2012 on November 11th or 
12th. It will be a half-day workshop consisting of two parts; paper 
session and pattern session.

Specific focus is put on pattern session as an opportunity for 
discussing and reaching consensus on best practices in the field.


---- Submission and Revision Process -----

We invite the submission of research results in the form of ontology 
design patterns (ODPs). Patterns submitted should have a general 
relevance to the ontology engineering field, or specific interest within 
a knowledge domain. Patterns should solve some particular problem, and 
be of significant interest for discussion at the workshop. Patterns 
should be original, in the sense that they are the intellectual product 
of the author(s), however they may still be based on the collective 
experience of a community.

Pattern submissions for the pattern session will be collected:
* through the ODP portal 
(http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/Submissions:SubmitAPattern) and
* by submitting a description of the pattern (a four-page pattern 
description in LNCS format) via EasyChair 
(https://www.easychair.org/conferences?conf=wop2012 / Pattern 
Track).This description should include an abstract or motivation, the 
problem to be solved, and details on how the pattern solved the problem.

Detailed instructions for patterns submission, including how to submit 
via the ODP portal, are found at the submission page 
(http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/WOP:2012/Submission). Note that 
an account in the ODP portal is needed for submitting patterns; thus, 
authors should take care to request an account at least one week before 
their intended submission.

Submitted patterns will be reviewed by at least two members of the 
Pattern PC. Accepted patterns have to be improved based on the review 
comments, i.e., an update of the patterns in the ODP portal is 
mandatory. Accepted patterns will be presented at the workshop as 
posters in the pattern session. After the workshop, the patterns may be 
considered for certification in the ODP portal.


---- Pattern Topics -----

Pattern submissions can be made in any type of Ontology Design Patterns 
(ODPs).

Currently, templates for submission are provided for the following types 
of patterns:

* Content patterns

* Structural patterns: logical and architecture patterns.

* Correspondence patterns: re-engineering and alignment patterns.


---- Best Pattern Award ----

Reviewers and workshop participants will together distinguish the best 
pattern submission, final decision to be made by the chairs. The best 
pattern award takes into account criteria such as the quality of the 
submission, the relevance and significance of the pattern, the 
presentation of the pattern, and the level of involvement of the author 
during the revision phase and poster session discussions during the 
workshop.


---- Important Dates ----

* (*Extended*) Submission deadline: August 10th (11:59pm Hawaii time)

* Notification of acceptance: August 31st

* Camera-ready versions: September 10th

* Workshop date: November 11st or 12th (to be decided)
