                          CALL FOR PAPERS, SYSTEMS & ONTOLOGIES
                     4th OWL Reasoner Evaluation Workshop (ORE 2015)
           Collocated with the 28th International Workshop on Description
                 June 6, 2015 - Athens, Greece

The goal of this workshop is to bring together both the DEVELOPERS and
END-USERS of reasoners for (subsets of) OWL 2, including systems focusing
on both intensional (ontology) and extensional (data) query answering. The
workshop will give developers a perfect opportunity to promote their


We invite submission of papers describing:

    * The architecture, implementation, and expected performance of the

    * Reasoner implementation details, usage reports, implementation "tips
and tricks".

    * Challenging ontologies and/or benchmark proposals for OWL reasoners.

Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS guidelines (
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) and should not be longer
than 6 pages (excluding references).

Submissions must be in PDF through the EasyChair conference system:

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the program committee. Selected
papers will be presented during the workshop and published as a volume of
CEUR workshop proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org/).


We invite reasoner developers to submit their systems for participation in
the 2015 OWL reasoner competition. The preliminary outline for the
competition is as follows:

    * The test sets will include OWL ontologies from all OWL 2 profiles and
of varying sizes, from a large corpus of ontologies (including ontologies
from the NCBO BioPortal, a web crawl, and user-submitted ontologies).
    * The tested tasks will include consistency checking, classification,
and realisation.
    * Developers will have to submit an executable wrapper script that
triggers the reasoning system, and the system itself to the competition
organizers, who will then carry out the benchmarks.

Dataset: http://zenodo.org/record/10791

Information about last year’s competition can be found on the ORE 2014
website: http://www.easychair.org/smart-program/VSL2014/ORE-competition.html

In addition to the system submissions, reasoner developers are invited to
submit a short paper describing their system. See the above instructions
for paper submissions.

Please, submit your system to ore2015 [at] easychair [dot] org by May 1,


We invite ontology developers to submit ontologies which they believe pose
a challenge performance-wise for current OWL reasoners to handle. These
ontologies will be included in our ontology corpus, and additionally will
have a separate analysis in the competition proceedings.

In addition to the ontology submissions, ontology developers are invited to
submit a short paper describing their ontology. See the above instructions
for paper submissions.

Please, submit your ontology to ore2015 [at] easychair [dot] org by May 1,


    * Paper submission deadline: April 10, 2015
    * Notification of acceptance: May 1, 2015
    * System/ontology submission (for competition): May 1, 2015
    * Workshop:  June 6, 2015
    * Competition: June 7-10, 2015 (TBC)
