> SPECIAL ISSUE: ONTOLOGIES AND THEIR APPLICATIONS
> JOURNAL OF UNIVERSAL COMPUTER SCIENCE (J.UCS -
http://www.jucs.org/)
>
>
> After pursuing a long tradition of study in
Philosophy, the term 
> “ontology” has become the new buzzword in computer
science. It is 
> receiving special attention not only from an active
community of 
> researchers pertaining to many areas of informatics
but also from the 
> industry, which is providing increasing budgets and
investments to 
> develop this technology and make it available in
business as soon as 
> possible.
> There is at least one main reason for this
recognition: ontologies 
> constitute the backbone of the Semantic Web, as they
are responsible 
> for providing context to pages, thus promising to
make a relevant 
part 
> of the Web contents understandable and processable
by the software. 
> However, there are some challenging obstacles that
should be tackled 
> to make ontologies wide-spread reputation shift from
a promise to a 
> daily used technology. For instance, heterogeneity
and evaluation are 
> two of these obstacles.
> Following the realization of the Brazilian "Workshop
on Ontologies 
and 
> their Applications" series (see
http://www.ws.onto.ufal.br/ for the 
> first edition and
http://www.icmc.usp.br/iarn2006/coevents/wonto.php 
> for the second), we planned this Special Issue as a
follow-up for the 
> last edition of the workshop, although by no means
limited to its 
> authors or participants only. With this Special
Issue, we intend to 
> enrich the discussion on how to enhance ontologies’
applicability, 
> thus realizing this promising technology in general,
but also in 
> specific settings, such as e-business and e-commerce
to name but a 
few.
>
