Call for papers

Building and Applying Ontologies for the Semantic Web
2nd Building and Applying Ontologies for the Semantic
Web – BAOSW’07

December 2007
Guimarães – Portugal

held in conjunction with 13th Portuguese Conference on
Artificial Intelligence

Ontologies promise a shared and common understanding
of a domain that can be communicated between people
and application systems. Therefore, they have emerged
as an important research area since the 1990’s.
Ontologies are used for different purposes (natural
language processing, e-commerce, e-learning, knowledge
management, semantic web, information retrieval, etc)
by different research communities (knowledge
engineering, database, software engineering, etc).

The emergence of the Semantic Web has marked another
stage in the evolution of the ontology field.
According to Berners-Lee, the Semantic Web is an
extension of the current Web in which information is
given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers
and people to work in cooperation. This cooperation
can be achieved by using shared knowledge-components.
Therefore ontologies have become a key instrument in
developing the Semantic Web. They interweave human
understanding of
symbols with their machine processability.

This workshop addresses the problems of building and
applying ontologies in the Semantic Web and other
areas listed below, as well as the theoretical and
practical challenges arising from these applications.
We invite contributions to enhance the
of creating, managing and using ontologies.

Topics of Interest:

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Ontology Engineering:

•    methodologies
•    capture
•    evaluation
•    management
•    evolution
•    learning

Ontologies for Information Sharing and Semantic

•    ontology-based information integration
•    mediators and brokers
•    agents and ontologies
•    composition and modularity
•    combining, merging, mapping and alignment
•    translating and transforming
•    ontology language interoperability

Ontology Applications

•    semantic web
•    knowledge management
•    natural language processing
•    e-commerce, e-government, e&#8209;learning and
e-science, e-medicine
•    information retrieval
•    p2p networks
•    web services
•    annotation
•    Folksonomies
•    Social Content Systems

Workshop format and attendance:
All submitted papers will be peer reviewed and
selected for presentation on the basis of these
reviews. Accepted papers will be presented at the

The schedule assumes a one day workshop. The workshop
will consist of the following components: technical
presentations of accepted papers and general
discussion (some time will be allocated to discuss
among the workshop participants about emerging

Attendance will be limited to workshop paper authors
and a very limited set of members of the community.
Workshop attendees are required to register for the
main EPIA 2007 conference. For more information,
please look up the conference website at

Submission procedure:
We encourage the submission of high-quality original
work. Papers must be written in English and may have
the format in accordance with the guidelines supplied
at EPIA 2007. Workshop papers of higher quality will
be selected for publication in the main volume of the
conference proceedings (Lectures Notes in Artificial
Intelligence - LNAI). The remaining accepted papers
will be published in local workshop proceedings, in
hard-copy and in the web. At least one of the authors
of accepted papers has to register for the EPIA 2007,
otherwise the paper will not be included in the
The submission process will be available on the
conference site. Submitted papers will be
peer-reviewed by at least two program committee
members and/or additional reviewers/referees.
Any other questions regarding papers submission may be
directed to the contact person.

Important dates:
28-May-07 - Paper submission
28-Jun-07 - Notification of paper acceptance
23-Jul-07 - Camera-ready paper submission
03-Dec-07 - Conference begins

Program Committee:

Organizing Committee:
H. Sofia Pinto(INESC-ID/IST)           
Andreia Malucelli (PUCPR/LIACC)        
Fred Freitas (UFPE)       
Philipp Cimiano                    

Workshop Venue
EPIA 2007 will be held in the city of Guimarães, which
is associated to the foundation of the Portuguese
nationality and identity. Guimarães is known as “the
Cradle of the Portuguese Nation”. It is a historical
and cultural reference of national residents and
visitors. The conference will be hosted by the
Department of Information Systems of the
University of Minho. Details on registration and
accommodation will be available on the conference
