"Special Track on Ontology Lifecycle Methods -
Algorithms for Ontology Learning, Evolution and Mining"

This one-day special track takes place on the 3rd September during 
TRIPLE-I '08 in Graz, Austria  (3 - 5 September 2008) as part of 
I-SEMANTICS '08. The Special Track provides an interdisciplinary forum for 
international scientists and practitioners to discuss various aspects of 
Ontology Lifecycle Methods (OLM). 

Encoding human knowledge is one of the crucial tasks to be mastered towards 
the realization of the Semantic Web. Knowledge is never static in a changing 
world therefore a representation must evolve over time. The Ontology 
Lifecycle involves all steps necessary for ontology creation, validation, 
evolution and application in a dynamic environment.
The special track will focus on automatic and semi-automatic algorithms and 
methods as well as their evaluation in the fields of Ontology Learning, 
Population, Evaluation, Matching and Alignment.
Submissions about data source/corpus analysis and application of web data 
sources for ontology learning, population and evolution are also very 
welcome. Quantitative ontology analysis, graph property extraction and graph 
mining methods as well as trend identification in evolving ontologies are 
aims of high interest within the ontology lifecycle and therefore part of 
this special track.

We invite contributions to enhance state-of-the-art methods and algorithms for 
the ontology lifecycle. Topics include but are not limited to:

* Ontology Lifecycle Algorithm and Methods
* Ontology Learning
* Ontology Population
* Ontology Versioning and Evolution
* Semantic Interoperability
* Ontology Matching and Alignment
* Change propagation within the Ontology Evolution Process
* Formal Aspects and Languages
* Applications and Tools
* Tools for the Ontology Lifecycle
* Visualisations of the Ontology Lifecycle
* Knowledge Relationship Discovery
* Information Retrieval for Ontology Learning and Evolution
* Machine Learning Techniques
* Graph Mining Algorithms and Methods
* Graph Matching and Indexing

The special track is open to all members of the Semantic Web, Ontology 
Learning, Machine Learning, Graph Analysis and Information Retrieval
