GENERAL OVERVIEW



Roughly 10 years after the vision of the Semantic Web was first presented,
semantic technologies have become a well-established pillar of computer
science research. With the increasing number of technologies being
developed, the problem of how to compare and evaluate the various approaches
gains more and more importance. Such evaluation is critical not only for
future scientific progress, but also for the industrial adoption of the
developed technologies.

Currently, the evaluation of Semantic Web technology and its applications is
difficult and expensive. Practitioners want to evaluate their tools and to
have data sets available in order to minimize the evaluation cost. Also,
there are some data sets that are widely being used by the community (such
as the Lehigh University Benchmark). The problem is that it is difficult for
users and developers to replicate these semantic technology evaluations, to
know what they are intended for, or to correctly use them.



The importance of evaluation for the growing maturity of semantic
technologies calls for established and agreed upon evaluation methods and
data sets. However, the achievement of these consensual mechanisms requires
to be actively driven by the whole community and, to this end, the community
requires a forum to express their opinions and to discuss them.

In the successful series of EON workshops we intend to bring together
researchers and practitioners interested in the evaluation of semantic
technologies, providing a meeting point and forum. Thus, the main goal of
this workshop is to lay the foundations for sharing and reusing methods and
tools for the evaluation of semantic technologies, such as ontology
development tools, ontology matching tools, ontology storage and reasoning
systems, semantic search tools, semantic web service tools, rule systems,
etc.

To this end, this edition of the EON workshop, besides presenting and
discussing latest research on semantic technology evaluation and its future
trends, will contain a special session on "Evaluation methods and test data
for semantic technologies". Contributions for this session will be evaluated
not just on their overall quality but also on their reusability. 


SPECIAL SESSION ON 
"EVALUATION METHODS AND TEST DATA FOR SEMANTIC TECHNOLOGIES"

Besides having presentations of papers including latest research on semantic
technology evaluation, this year we will have a special session on
"Evaluation methods and test data for semantic technologies".

For this session, we ask for contributions that present existing or novel
evaluation methods or test data for semantic technologies, including the
information needed to use them. 

More details on this session can be found in the workshop web page.


TOPICS OF INTEREST



Main topics of interest cover any type of semantic technology and include
but are not limited to:

 * Semantic technology evaluation methods
 * Evaluation tools and data sets
 * Interoperability and compliance evaluations
 * Efficiency and scalability evaluations and benchmarks
 * Usability of semantic technologies
 * Evaluations of semantic technologies in real world scenarios
 * Semantic technology certification
 * Semantic technology recommendation


IMPORTANT DATES



 * Deadline for paper submissions: March 1st, 2010
 * Notification of acceptance: April 5th, 2010
 * Camera-ready versions: April, 18th, 2010
 * Deadline for evaluation materials: May, 15th, 2010
 * Workshop day: May 30th, 2010 (tentative)


SUBMISSIONS



Papers must be submitted in PDF format via the Easychair system prior to the
paper submission deadline:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eon2010

Papers page limit is 10 pages and they should be formatted according to the
ACM SIG Proceedings guidelines.

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library in its
International Conference Proceedings Series.

The submission of papers for the special session is identical to the
submission of regular papers.
