Workshop Description

It has been argued that the advantages of Semantic Web
Technologies in software engineering include reusability and
extensibility of data models, improvements in data quality, and
discovery and automated execution of workflows. According to
SETF's note "A Semantic Web Primer for Object-Oriented Software
Developers" (http://www.w3.org/TR/sw-oosd-primer/), the Semantic
Web can serve as a platform on which domain models can be created,
shared and reused. However, are there any other potential benefits
related to the reversal of this approach and the use of Semantic
Web concepts in the field of Software Engineering? Could the
Web-based, semantically rich formality of OWL be combined with
emerging model driven development tools such as the Eclipse
Modelling Framework to provide some badly needed improvements in
both the process and product of software development activities?
What is it about the amalgamation of OWL, UML and the Model Driven
Architecture (MDA) that could make a difference? Certainly, there
appear to be a number of strong arguments in favour of this
approach but consensus on the best way forward, or if there is
indeed a way forward at all has not yet formed. This workshop
seeks to build on prior events that have begun to explore and
evaluate this important area.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Visions for Semantic Web driven software engineering
- Tools developed or being developed for software engineering using SW
languages
- Integration or application development projects combining Software
Engineering techniques and Semantic Web tools or languages
- Lessons learned in Automatic Software Engineering or KBSE applicable to
SW based SE
- Shortcomings of the Semantic Web with respect to Software Engineering
- Uses, extensions and/or issues with ODM
- Visions for SW driven software modernization
- Integration of UML, OO programming languages and Semantic Web languages
- Integration of formal methods and Semantic Web languages
- Software specification and Semantic Web languages
- Ontologies for software engineering
- Component discovery and ontologies
- Feature modelling and ontologies
- Ontology-based reasoning for software engineering
- Semantic annotations in software engineering
- Ontology-Driven Architecture: How to introduce Semantic Web technology
into mainstream development processes
