       Call for Patterns                                       
       4th Workshop on Ontology and Semantic Web Patterns

       October 21st or 22nd, 2013
       Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre in Darling Harbour,
Submission deadline - July 12th, 2013 (11:59pm Hawaii time)

This workshop provides an arena for proposing and discussing good and
bad 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 ISWC 2013 and will be a
half-day event.

We invite the submission of research results in the form of ontology
design patterns (ODPs). Patterns submitted should have a general
relevance to the ontology engineering field, or specific interest within
a knowledge domain. Patterns should solve some particular modeling
problem, and be of significant interest for discussion at the workshop.
Patterns should be original, in the sense that they are the intellectual
product of the author(s), however they may still be based on the
collective experience of a community.

---- Pattern Topics  -----
Ontology design pattern (ODP) submissions will be collected

* by submitting a description of the pattern (pattern description) via
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wop2013 (select "WOP2013
Patterns Track”)
* through the ODP portal [1]: templates for submission [2] are provided
for the following types of patterns (see general typology [3] 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, the author is welcome to submit only a
pattern description. 

Detailed instructions for patterns submission, including how to submit
via the ontologydesignpatterns.org portal, are found at the submission
page [4]. Note that an account in the ODP portal is needed for
submitting patterns; thus, authors should take care to request an
account at least one week before their intended submission.

---- Process -----

Patterns are submitted through the ODP portal [1,2], and reviewed by at
least two members of the ODP portal quality committee. Accepted patterns
are to be improved based on the review comments, i.e. an update of the
patterns in the ODP portal is mandatory. Accepted patterns are then
presented as posters at the workshop, in a joint poster session with
poster and demo papers. After the workshop, the patterns may be
considered for certification in 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 poster session discussions during the

---- Important dates (2013, 11:59 Hawaii time)  ----

* Notification of acceptance (research papers and patterns) - August 9th
* Camera ready deadline (research papers and pattern abstracts) - August
* Workshop date - October 21st or 22nd
