[OWLED 2015] Call For Participation!!!

CALL FOR PAPER: 12th OWL: Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED)
Bethlehem, Pennsylvania (USA), October 9th - 10th, 2015 co-located with
ISWC 2015

OWLED is now also a Community Group at the W3C. Everyone is invited to
participate: http://www.w3.org/community/owled/


The aim of the OWL: Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED) is to
establish an international forum for the OWL community, where practitioners
in industry and academia, tool developers, and others interested in OWL can
describe real and potential applications, share experiences and discuss
requirements for language extensions/modifications.

OWL has become the representational model of choice for supporting
interoperability in many industries. With its rise in popularity, as well
as the number of publicly available ontologies, it becomes important to
focus on the processes by which ontologies can be engineered through reuse.

In this edition of OWLED we aim to bridge the gap between ontology
engineering practices and software engineering, where reuse is common
practice, and we welcome submissions of papers describing reuse methods
employed throughout the ontology development cycle; modeling /
terminological decisions, alignment and comparison between ontologies, how
ontologies are stored, versioned, distributed, and consumed over the Web.
As with previous editions, we also welcome proposals for improving the OWL
This year we also have a special ontology track, with submissions of
ontologies that present interesting modelling problems or that can generate
challenging tasks with respect to OWLED topics (e.g., ontologies that are
challenging for reasoners to handle).

Registration can be done at the following link:
