The Journal of Web Semantics invites submissions for a

   **special issue on Ontology-Based Software Architectures**

to be edited by Martin G. Skjæveland, Roman Kontchakov and Martin Giese. 
Submissions are due by 31st December 2020.

Semantic technologies and knowledge-based systems are gaining momentum 
in society and industry. A variety of standards, techniques and tools 
have become available for the development, deployment, and maintenance 
of ontologies and related artefacts. However, the use of ontologies as 
an active integrating component in complex software systems is less well 
understood. The lack of a clear understanding of the role of an ontology 
in a software system is one of the major challenges to the adoption of 
ontologies and semantic technologies in mainstream software. This 
special issue solicits best practices, practitioner insights and novel 
theoretical contributions to architectures, techniques, orchestrations 
of artefacts and tools for the realisation of successful ontology-based 
software systems.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

  * Ontology-based software architectures
    - development methodologies, environments and tools
    - system architecture, ontology architecture
    - management and orchestration of multiple ontology-based systems
    - design and management of artefacts (ontologies, constraints,
      mappings, data sources, queries, interfaces, etc.)

  * Reports from real-world deployments and applications of ontology-
    based systems
    - lessons learned and new insights to the field
    - best practices of development, deployment and maintenance
    - benefits and costs, especially in comparison with alternative
    - socio-technical aspects

  * Core technologies and tools relevant for the realisation of ontology-
    based systems
    - ontology engineering tools and methodologies
    - ontology reasoners
    - ontology alignment and integration
    - data quality and constraints
    - ontology-based data integration
    - ontology-based data access
    - ontology-driven user interfaces, including visualisation, query
      interfaces, etc.

Submissions must clearly state their contributions’ role and relevance 
in the application, development or management of ontology-based software
