I just came across an excellent paper that will be good fodder for such a working group: http://smi-web.stanford.edu/people/holger/publications/MDSW2004.pdf 

Ontology-Driven Software Development
in the Context of the Semantic Web:
An Example Scenario with Prot´eg´e/OWL
Holger Knublauch
Stanford Medical Informatics, Stanford University, CA
holger@smi.stanford.edu
Abstract
Recent efforts towards the Semantic Web vision have lead to a number of standards such as OWL and Web Service languages. While these standards provide a technical infrastructure, software developers have little guidance on how to build real-world Semantic Web applications. Based on a realistic application scenario, we present some initial thoughts on a software architecture and a development methodology forWeb services and agents for the SemanticWeb. This architecture is driven by formal domain models (ontologies). The methodology applies best practices from agile development methodologies, including systematic tests, short feedback loops, and close involvement of domain experts. We illustrate how these techniques can be put into practice using the modern Semantic Web development tool Prot´eg´e, and indicate future possibilities.

==

There is a whole community called "Automated Software Engineering" which is relevant. ALso, the OMG Model-Driven Architecture is quite relevant. The latter is discussed in the above paper.

Good search terms include "ontology-driven" and one or more of: 
"information systems"
"software engineering"
"software development"   etc.

Guus, David

Just a quick note to state that I second Jeff's motion to establish a Task
Force on "The Semantic Web and Software Engineering". Please see my
additional comments below.

Guus and David,

I would like to propose a new Task Force "Semantic Web and Software
Engineering". Could you point me to the formal precedure of proposing a new
TF please?

Greetings,
Jeff
