                            1st CALL FOR PAPERS & SYSTEMS
                     2nd OWL Reasoner Evaluation Workshop (ORE 2013)
                        Collocated with DL 2013 Workshop
                July 22nd in Ulm, Germany

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.


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:

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/).


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/


    * Paper submission deadline: May 3rd, 2013

    * Notification of acceptance: May 31st, 2013

    * System submission deadline for competition: June 27th, 2013

    * Workshop: July 22nd, 2013

    * Competitions: July 22-26, 2013
