                   CALL FOR PAPERS

         5th International EON Workshop on
Evaluation of Ontologies and Ontology-based tools

               November 11th, 2007
             Located at the ISWC 2007
                  Busan, Korea


The successful series of EON workshops have provided a meeting facility 
for the discussion and enhancement of technology evaluation in the 
Semantic Web. Ontologies and Semantic Web technologies are moving 
towards industrial application, and thus require evaluations and 
benchmarks to be available to a broader range of users and developers. 
The main goal of this workshop is to gather, share and reuse methods, 
tools and metrics for Web Ontology Evaluation and Semantic Web 
Technology Evaluation (ontology development tools, ontology merging and 
alignment tools, ontology-based annotators, etc.).

The previous workshops proposed a series of experiments for evaluating 
different aspects of ontology tools (EON2002, EON2003 and EON2004), e.g. 
their expressiveness and interoperability capabilities, and different 
aspects of ontologies. The aim of the EON series is to attract attention 
to a number of evaluation topics since we believe this to be a highly 
relevant issue for the adaptation of Semantic Web technologies by 
partners outside the Semantic Web community.

This year we aim to obtain methods, tools and metrics that can be reused 
by the whole community in ontology evaluation and ontology technology 
evaluation tasks. We propose a experiment in the ontology evaluation 
area, while for ontology technology evaluation we will ask for short 
papers that provide existing benchmark suite descriptions with the 
information needed to use them and that will be evaluated according to 
their usability by an expert committee.

Both the proposed evaluation methods, tools and metrics and well as 
their results will be collected and made available to the research 
community by means of the Ontoworld wiki. Therefore, they can be 
extended while research advances in these topics.


Main topics of interest in the areas of ontology and ontology technology 
evaluation include but are not limited to:

  * Evaluation methodologies and methods
  * Tools and benchmark suites
  * Metrics
  * Certification
  * Web Ontology Evaluation
  * Ontology Content Evaluation and Criteria for Ontology Content Evaluation
  * Task-oriented Evaluation / Task-independent Evaluation
  * Formal/Informal Ontology Evaluation
  * Evaluation of Heavily Interconnected Ontologies / Networks of Ontologies
  * Interoperability of tools
  * Integration of tools into frameworks
  * Performance and scalability evaluations and benchmarks


This year, papers will be submitted via the main ISWC2007 submission 
system. Papers should be formatted according to the guidelines of the 
ISWC2007 conference.

Papers must not exceed 10 pages. Short papers, experiment contributions, 
evaluation descriptions, and demo descriptions must not exceed 4 pages.

We will pursue a journal special issue with the topics of the workshop 
if we receive an appropriate number of high-quality submissions.


  * Deadline for paper submissions: August 12th, 2007 (*extended*)
  * Deadline for experiment descriptions and demos: August 12th, 2007 
  * Notification of acceptance (papers and demos): September 7th, 2007
  * Camera-ready versions: September, 28th, 2007
  * Workshop: November 11th, 2007
