         10th OWL: Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED 2013)
                     Montpellier, France. May 26-27, 2013

                         Co-located with ESWC 2013


The aim of the OWL: Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED) is to
establish an international forum for the OWL community, where practitioners in
industry and academia, tool developers and others interested in OWL can
describe real and potential applications, share experience and discuss
requirements for language extensions/modifications. OWL is quickly becoming
the representational model of choice for expressing semantics of BigData in
many industries. This has been made possible thanks to the newly introduced
support for tractable OWL fragments that allow inference at large scales over
rapidly evolving data. OWLED will be celebrating its 10th year edition which
provides an opportunity for an event focused on OWL in retrospective, OWL's
evolution, and future directions in a BigData world.

This year, OWLED will be co-located with ESWC 2013 in Montpellier, France. As
usual, the workshop will try to encourage participants to work together and
will give space for discussions of various topics as well as having
presentation of submissions.

Papers about all aspects of OWL and extensions, applications, theory, methods
and tools, are welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to,

       * Application driven requirements for OWL
       * Applications of OWL
       * Experience of using OWL, in particular the OWL 2 Profiles
       * Evaluation of OWL tools e.g. reasoners
       * Benchmarks for OWL tools
       * Performance and scalability issues and improvements
       * Extensions to OWL
       * OWL and Rules
       * Implementation techniques and experience reports
       * Non-standard reasoning service (implementation and requirements for)
       * Explanation
       * Ontology comprehension
       * Tools, including editors, visualisation, parsers and syntax checkers
       * Collaborative editing of ontologies
       * Versioning of OWL ontologies
       * Modularity
       * Query answering with OWL
       * SPARQL and OWL
       * Linked Data and OWL       

Important Dates

Titles and Abstract Due:  28th February
Submissions due:          4th March
Acceptance Notifications: 1st April
Final papers due:         15th April
OWLED Workshop:           26th - 27th May


This year we would like to invite submissions of the following sorts:

Technical papers (maximum 12 pages LNCS style). These papers should present
research, implementation experience, and reports on the above topics and
related topics. Space will be reserved for authors to present their work at
the workshop.

Short papers or System descriptions (maximum 4-6 pages LNCS style). These
papers should present work that is in an early stage and/or publicize (novel)
implemented systems that are of interest to OWLED attendees. We encourage
authors of system descriptions to also submit a demonstration paper.

Demonstrations (2 pages LNCS style). These papers should describe a
demonstration of a system. The description should highlight why the
system/service is of interest to the OWL community and should clearly state
what will be demonstrated during the session. We encourage

All submissions must be made online using the EasyChair conference system:

Best regards,
