NOTE: In this year's workshop, we propose an experiment on ontology 
alignment tools


*** OBJECTIVES ***

In the Evaluation of Ontology-based Tools workshop we intend to bring 
together researchers and practitioners from the fastly developing 
research areas Ontologies and Semantic Web. Currently the semantic 
web attracts researchers from all around the world. Numerous tools 
and applications of semantic web technologies are already available 
and the number is growing fast. However, deploying large scale 
ontology solutions typically involves several separate tasks and 
requires applying multiple tools. Therefore pragmatic issues such as 
interoperability are key if industry is to be encouraged to take up 
ontology technology rapidly. The main aim of this workshop is 
therefore to encourage and stimulate discussions about the evaluation 
of ontology-based tools.

The large visibility of the semantic web, its tools and applications 
already attract industrial partners. In particular, as tools move 
from academic institutions into commercial environments they have to 
fulfil stronger requirements and in some cases new requirements (e.g. 
concerning scalability and multi-user access). Different tools from 
different sources need to interoperate. Typically tools are not 
anymore standalone solutions but integrated into a framework. This 
framework must be open to other commercial applications and provide 
connectors and interfaces to industrial standards. Larger 
applications need also larger ontologies and therefore require 
substantially more performance and scalability.

A systematic evaluation of the tools might lead to a consistent level 
of quality and thus acceptance by industry. For the future this might 
lead into certification efforts for such tools.



*** TOPICS OF INTEREST ***

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Interoperability of tools
- Integration of tools into frameworks
- Performance benchmarks
- Scalability of tools
- Certification of tools

Tools include e.g.:
- Annotation tools
- Inference engines
- Ontology editors and browsers
- Ontology servers
- Ontology mapping tools
- Repositories
- Retrieval tools
- Semantic search engines

*** SUBMISSION AND PROCEEDINGS ***
We invite two types of technical paper submissions for this workshop:
- Technical papers (10 pages)
- Short position papers (2 pages)

Besides, we invite experiment paper submissions, as follows:

*** EXPERIMENTS ****
For this workshop we propose to experiment on ontology alignment 
tools. The objective of this experiment is to qualify algorithms and 
tools for ontology alignment, and to get feed back on the experiment 
protocol.

The experiment consists in:
- Run ontology alignment tools on the sample ontologies
- Compare the results and provide the precision/recall results
- Propose new measures to be used
