                            1st CALL FOR PAPERS & SYSTEMS
                     2nd OWL Reasoner Evaluation Workshop (ORE 2013)
                        Collocated with DL 2013 Workshop
                July 22nd in Ulm, Germany
                       http://ore2013.cs.manchester.ac.uk/
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


OBJECTIVES
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The goal of this workshop is to bring together both the DEVELOPERS and
END-USERS of reasoners for (subsets of) OWL, including systems focusing on
both intensional (ontology) and extensional (data) query answering. The
workshop will give developers a perfect opportunity to promote their
systems and get
feedback from end-users and real uses-cases.


CALL FOR PAPERS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

We invite submission of papers describing:

    * System descriptions describing the architecture, implementation, and
expected performance of the reasoner.

    * Reasoner implementation details, usage reports, implementation "tips
and tricks".

    * Challenging ontologies and/or benchmark proposals for OWL reasoners.

Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS guidelines (
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) and should not be longer
than 6 pages.

Submissions must be in PDF through the EasyChair conference system:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ore2013.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the program committee. Selected
papers will be presented during the workshop and published as a volume of
CEUR workshop proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org/).


CALL FOR SYSTEMS (CHALLENGE)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

We invite reasoner developers to submit their reasoners for participation
in the OWL reasoner performance competition. The outline for the
competition is as follows:
    * The test sets will include OWL ontologies from all OWL 2 profiles and
of varying sizes, randomly sampled from the NCBO BioPortal, a web crawl,
and user-submitted hard ontologies.
    * The tested tasks will include consistency checking, classification,
entailment checking, and query answering.
    * Developers should send a JAR file of their systems to the competition
organizers who will then carry out the benchmarks.

We also strongly encourage challenge participants to submit a system
description paper (see instructions above), describing:

    * architecture
    * implementation
    * expected performance

More information about the competition can be found on the ORE 2013
website: http://ore2013.cs.manchester.ac.uk/competition/
