Workshop Dates: March 4 - 7, 2008

Ontologies represent a shared meaning of domain knowledge and act as  
enabler for many applications such as data integration, agent  
communication, peer-to-peer systems, e-commerce, and semantic web  
services. With an increase in the development of ontologies comes the  
need for tools and techniques for solving heterogeneity problems  
among different ontologies.

Currently, we cannot guarantee that the results from ontology  
alignment algorithms will always be accurate. In general, a user  
interacting with an ontology alignment tool, must check the candidate  
alignments produced by the tool, indicate which ones are correct and  
which ones are not, and create additional matches that the tool may  
have missed. This is a difficult task, especially when dealing with  
large, complex ontologies.

Target Group:
This workshop aims at providing a place of discussion for researchers  
interested in the field of ontology alignment and ontology  
visualization in order to analyze current shortcomings, identify  
users' needs and future research challenges, present exciting ideas,  
and find new solutions for effective and qualitative data integration  
in the semantic web. Researchers interested in discussing new  
techniques for understanding and presenting ontology alignment  
results are encouraged to participate. This also includes researchers  
with a general interest in ontology visualization techniques.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
Ontology Alignment
Ontology Mapping
Automated and Human-mediated Tasks of the Alignment Process
User Interfaces for Ontology Alignment
Visual Metaphors in Alignment
Ontology Visualization
User-specific and Task-oriented Ontology Alignment
Definition and Manipulation of Alignment Targets
Ontology Adaptation
Quality in Ontology Alignment and Mapping
Alignment Meta-Data
Alignment Vocabularies
Standardization of Alignment Data
Industry applications of ontology alignment
Navigation in Alignment and Information Spaces
Similarity Measures for Ontology Alignment
Relatedness of Ontologies

Submission Guidelines & Publication:
The papers should be prepared using the IEEE CS format, two columns  
layout, single-spaced, 10-point, and using page numbers. The length  
should not exceed 6 pages (including figures and tables). For  
submission the paper should not contain the names of the authors or  
any references that may point to them as the authors of the paper.  
The papers should be submitted electronically via CISIS'08 website.  
If there is any problem with the electronic submission, please  
contact Monika Lanzenberger.

For Instructions for LaTeX users see:

Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality,  
significance to workshop topics, technical soundness, clarity, and  
presentation quality. Each submission will receive at least three  
double-blind reviews. Proceedings of the workshop will be published  
by IEEE Computer Society Press. The best papers presented at the  
workshop will be selected for publication in an international journal.
