> The deadline for the ORES workshop has been extended to March 7, 2010.

>
> The growing number of online ontologies makes the availability of ontology
> repositories, in which ontology practitioners can easily find, select and
> retrieve reusable components, a crucial issue. The recent emergence of
> several
> ontology repository systems is a further sign of this. However, in order
> for
> these systems to be successful, it is necessary to provide a forum for
> researchers and developers to discuss features and exchange ideas on the
> realization of ontology repositories in general and to consider explicitly
> their
> role in the ontology lifecycle. In addition, it is now critical to achieve
> interoperability between ontology repositories, through common interfaces,
> standard metadata formats, etc. ORES10 intends to provide such a forum.
>
> Illustrating the importance of the problem, significant initiatives are now
> emerging. One example is the Open Ontology Repositories (OOR) working group
> set
> up by the Ontolog community. Within this effort regular virtual meetings
> are
> organized and actively attended by ontology experts from around the world;
> The
> Ontolog OOR 2008 meeting was held at the National Institute for Standards
> in
> Technology (NIST), generating a joint communiqué outlining requirements and
> paving the way for collaborations. Another example is the Ontology Metadata
> Vocabulary (OMV) Consortium, addressing metadata for describing ontologies.
> Despite these initial efforts, ontology repositories are hardly
> interoperable
> amongst themselves. Although sharing similar aims (providing easy access to
> Semantic Web resources), they diverge in the methods and techniques
> employed for
> gathering these documents and making them available; each interprets and
> uses
> metadata in a different manner. Furthermore, many features are still poorly
> supported, such as modularization and versioning, as well as the
> relationship
> between ontology repositories and ontology engineering environments
> (editors) to
> support the entire ontology lifecycle.
>
>
> Submitting papers and system descriptions
>
> We want to bring together researchers and practitioners active in the
> design,
> development and application of ontology repositories, repository-aware
> editors,
> modularization techniques, versioning systems and issues around federated
> ontology systems. We therefore encourage the submission of research papers,
> position papers and system descriptions discussing some of the following
> questions:
>
>  * How can ontology repositories “talk” to each other?
>  * How can the abundant and complex knowledge contained in an ontology
> repository be made comprehensible for users?
>  * What is the role of ontology repositories in the ontology lifecycle?
>  * How can branching and versioning be managed in and across ontology
> repositories?
>  * How can ontology repositories interoperate with ontology editors, and
> other
> applications and legacy systems?
>  * How can connections across ontologies be managed within and across
> ontology
> repositories?
>  * How can modularity be better supported in ontology repositories and
> editors?
>  * How can ontology repositories and editors use distributed reasoning?
>  * How can ontology repositories support corporate, national and domain
> specific
> semantic infrastructures?
>  * How do ontology repositories support novel semantic applications?
>  * What measurements for describing and comparing ontologies can we use?
> How
> could ontology repositories use these?
>
> Research papers are limited to 12 pages and position papers to 5 pages. For
> system descriptions, a 5 page paper should be submitted. All papers and
> system
> descriptions should be formatted according to the LNCS format
> (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-2-72376-0). Proceedings
> of
> the workshop will be published online. Depending on the number and quality
> of
> the submissions, authors might be invited to present their papers during a
> poster session.

> Submissions can be realized through the easychair system at
