********************************************************************

   In conjunction of the International Federated Conferences (OTM '06)

                  3-4 Nov 2006, Montpellier, France

 

This workshop is organized by the Ontology Outreach Authority OOA 

(Knowledge Web NoE). The OOA is devoted to develop strategies for ontology 

recommendation and standardization, thereby promoting and providing 

outreach for verifiable quality ontological content.

 

Current trends within the Semantic Web research are mainly concerned with 

technological issues, such as language capabilities, inference services, 

etc. Yet less attention has been given to ontology content and its 

quality. This workshop aims to focus on content issues, such as 

methodologies and tools concerned with modeling good ontologies, 

approaches to ontology content evaluation, quality measures, ontology 

content management (e.g. metadata, libraries, and registration), ontology 

documentation, etc. The workshop also aims to give a special attention to 

ontology content issues in two industrial sectors: human resources and 

employment, and healthcare and life sciences.

 

We welcome papers and (past/planned) project descriptions that discuss 

ontology modeling and evaluation aspects, particularly:

* Research papers presenting theoretical solutions, but with a clear

  illustration on how these solutions can be applied in industry.

* Position papers presenting opinions on some aspect of ontology practice,

  or describing work that is still in progress, but sufficiently mature to

  warrant attention.

* Business experience and case studies specifying requirements, 

  challenges, or opportunities of modeling and applying ontologies in 

  industry.

 

Workshop Structure

================

The workshop consists of three tracks: Ontology Evaluation, Ontologies in 

Human Resources and Employment, and ontologies in Healthcare and life 

sciences:

 

Methods and tools for ontology evaluation:

      * Ontological evaluation.

      * Logical evaluation.

      * Usability/usefulness evaluation.

      * Ontology compliance to standards.

      * Ontology standardization and recommendation scenarios.

      * Ontology metadata, and libraries.

      * Ontology documentation.

      * Ontology registration and certification.

      * Ontology interoperability.

      * Consensus reaching.

      * Business cases studies.

 

Ontologies in Human Resources 

      * Modeling and representation of: Jobs, CVs, Competencies, Skills, 

         Employees, People, Organizations, Social Events, etc.

      * HR upper level concepts.

      * Semantics of HR-XML.

      * Semantic metadata for HR applications.

      * Semantics in job matching.

      * Semantics in learning technologies.

      * Multilinguality in human resources ontologies.

      * Best practice and semantic patterns in ontology modeling and 

        evaluation. 

 

Ontologies for Healthcare and Life sciences

      * Ontologies in Biomedicine and bioinformatics.

      * Ontologies of diseases, nursing, therapeutics, drug, etc.

      * Upper level concepts of healthcare and life sciences ontologies.

      * Semantic metadata for Clinical Data Interchange.

      * Semantics of medical XML standards and vocabularies.

      * Multilinguality in Biomedicine and bioinformatics ontologies.

      * Best practice and semantic patterns in ontology modeling and 

        evaluation 

 

Submissions

============

We invite (A) research papers describing original studies of no more than

12 pages; (B) Position papers presenting opinions or work in progress of 

no more than 6 pages; and (C) Business experience and case studies of no 

more than 8 pages. Submitted papers will be fully refereed based on the 

originality and significance of the ideas presented as well as on 

technical aspects. Each paper will be reviewed by at least one expert from

academia, and at least one expert from industry. The final proceedings 

will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer 

Science). Author instructions can be found at:
