 3rd International Workshop on Evaluation of Ontology-based Tools (EON2004)

 Workshop at the  3rd International Semantic Web Conference
 (ISWC 2004)

 8 November 2004

 Hiroshima Prince Hotel, Hiroshima, Japan


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


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 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

EON2003: http://km.aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de/ws/eon2003
EON2002: http://km.aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de/eon2002

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:

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 that will
  be provided in this Web site (their first version will be provided
  on June 15th, and the final version will be provided on July 7th).
- Compare the results and provide the precision/recall results.
- Propose new measures to be used.
The details related to the experiment will be posted soon in the
workshop Web site.


Deadline paper submissions: July 15th, 2004
Notification of acceptance: September 1st, 2004
Camera ready deadline: October 1st, 2004

Deadline for ontology alignment experiment submissions: September 15th
Camera ready deadline: October 1st, 2004
