[FINAL CFP] 2nd IAOA International Workshop on ONTOLOGIES and CONCEPTUAL MODELING (Onto.Com 2013) @ CAISE 2013, Valencia, Spain

            CALL FOR PAPERS

2nd International Workshop on ONTOLOGIES and CONCEPTUAL MODELING
            (Onto.Com 2013)
            Together with the
25th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering
(CAISE 2013)
            organized by
the SIG on Ontologies and Conceptual Modeling of the
International Association for Ontologies and Applications (IAOA)



There has been a growing interest in the role played by formal ontology,
as well as areas such as philosophical logics, cognitive sciences and
in the development of theoretical foundations for conceptual modeling.
In particular, a number of ontological theories such as BWW, DOLCE, GFO and
have been successfully applied to the evaluation of conceptual modeling
languages and frameworks
(e.g., UML, ORM, ER, REA, TROPOS, ARIS, BPMN, RM-ODP, Archimate and OWL),
and to the development of engineering tools (e.g., methodological
modeling profiles, design patterns) that contribute to the theory and
practice of this discipline.

Additionally, there has been an increasing interest in the use of empirical
to assess the impact of the application of these theoretical foundations to
the design
of conceptual modeling grammars and tools. The objective of this workshop
is to collect innovative and high-quality research contributions regarding
the role played by the aforementioned disciplines to the foundations of
conceptual modeling.

With this workshop we would like to create a true forum for discussion and,
in that spirit, we would like to solicit papers that address specific
questions of relevance
to body of knowledge of the emerging discipline of Ontology-Driven
Conceptual Modeling.

This bi-annual workshop had its sucessful first edition organized during the
30th International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER 2011) and is an
event of the SIG on Ontologies and Conceptual Modeling of the
International Association for Ontologies and Applications (IAOA).


Examples for topics that can be of interest address questions such as:

    What is the relation between Ontology as an Artifact, Ontology as a
Philosophical Discipline, Conceptual Modeling and Metamodeling?
    What is the relation between Ontology Levels of Instantiation and
Metamodeling Levels of Instantiation?
    What is the relation between Ontological Semantics, Formal Semantics,
Abstract and Concrete Syntax for Visual Conceptual Modeling Languages?
    What kind of Logical, Ontological and Epistemological Foundations are
needed for Conceptual Modeling?
    How can fundamental theoretical research on Ontological Foundations for
Conceptual Modeling and Empirical Research fit together?
    How can Formal Ontological Theories be used for the Analysis and Design
of Conceptual Modeling languages (including Enterprise Modeling and
Domain-Specific Modeling languages)?
    How researchers and practitioners in other domains not related to
computer science and information systems (such as the Bioinformatics) are
using Ontologies?
    Is there a common notion of "Ontology" shared in all these domains, or
are we including different notions under the same term (Ontology)

Submission and types of papers

Workshop proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNBIP
(Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing) series.
Authors must submit manuscripts using the Springer-Verlag LNBIP style. See
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for style files and details.

We welcome technical research papers as well as speculative/visionary
papers addressing the topics of the workshop.

Submissions should be in LNBIP and pdf format. The maximum length is 10
pages. Accepted papers will be published in the LNBIP workshop proceedings.
After the discussions at the workshop, we are planning to organize a
special issue at a high-quality journal on the field with invited extended
versions of the papers.
