                    2nd and Final Call for Papers
     1st Workshop on Ontology Patterns (WOP2009) 		

                            October 25th, 2009
  Westfields Conference Center near Washington, DC

Deadline extended - NEW deadline August 16

This workshop provides an arena for proposing and discussing good  
practices, patterns, pattern-based ontologies, systems etc. The aim is  
to broaden the pattern community that will develop its own “language”  
for discussing and describing relevant problems and their solutions.  
The workshop will be held in conjunction with ISWC2009 on October  
25th. It will be a full-day workshop consisting of three parts;  
papers, posters, and “pattern writing” sessions.

Specific focus is put on the “pattern writing” sessions as an  
opportunity for discussing and reaching consensus on best practices in  
the field. The pattern writing sessions are closely related to another  
interactive event series, namely VoCamps [1], since certain types of  
patterns are in fact small vocabularies. The main difference is that  
this workshop encompasses a broader range of patterns, and the focus  
is on engineering best practices.

Pattern Topics

Accepted patterns will be represented in the online CEUR-workshop  
proceedings through an extended abstract. Ontology design pattern  
(ODP) proposals for the “pattern writing” sessions will be collected  
through the ODP portal [2], and templates for submission [3] are  
provided for the following types of patterns (see general typology [4]  
for explanation of the types):

* Content patterns
* Structural patterns: logical and architecture patterns.
* Correspondence patterns: re-engineering and alignment patterns.

For other types of patterns, or if the author wishes to elaborate on  
theoretical rather than practical aspects, a pattern description may  
be submitted as either a research or poster paper. A paper submission  
can be accompanied by a pattern submission, however the submissions  
will be reviewed separately.


Patterns are submitted through the ODP portal [2,3], and reviewed by  
at least two members of the PC. Each accepted pattern will receive an  
advisor who acts as a discussion partner throughout the complete  
process. Accepted patterns are then described in an extended abstract,  
included in the CEUR workshop proceedings. Accepted patterns are to be  
improved based on the review comments, and additional improvements  
will be discussed during the workshop session. After the workshop, the  
patterns are considered for certification at the ODP portal.

Best Pattern Award

Reviewers and workshop participants will together distinguish the best  
pattern submission, final decision to be made by the chairs. The best  
pattern award takes into account criteria such as the quality of the  
submission, the relevance and significance of the pattern, the  
presentation of the pattern, and the level of involvement of the  
author during the revision phase and discussion contributions during  
the workshop.
