The ESWC2005 Workshop on 
Ontologies in P2P Communities

May 30, 2005, Heraklion, Greece 


Recently, a lot of research has been aimed at bringing together and
augmenting the benefits of Semantic Web technologies on the one hand and

P2P systems on the other. 
Ontologies are a vital part of the Semantic Web vision, providing 
machine-understandable, shared conceptualizations of the respective 
domains of interest within communities. 
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems are a means for communities to establish 
communication among their members, foster collaboration and provide an 
infrastructure in which peers can share and create knowledge. 
The use of ontologies for and within P2P systems is expected be a
crucial part
of creating P2P communities that go beyond file-sharing. 
While most existing P2P systems are used for exchanging objects such as 
data files, which are described by few simple attributes such as a file
or a hash code, ontology-based P2P systems will open up new
They can enable richer, potentially more useful descriptions of peers, 
services, and shared artefacts, thus facilitating new ways of querying, 
sharing, and organizing knowledge within communities. 
The goal of the intended workshop is to bring together researchers and 
practitioners from the P2P, Semantic Web and Knowledge Management fields

to present their work done within one or more of the topics of interest.

TOPICS of interest include, but are not limited to: 

- Formation of P2P communities 
- Self-description of peers 
- Trust and reputation in P2P communities 
- Social aspects of P2P communities 
- Distributed ontology engineering 
- Semantic routing 
- Query languages for semantic P2P systems 
- User interfaces and tools for distributed knowledge management 
- Semantic P2P applications 


We invite two types of submissions for this workshop:

- Technical papers (maximum 12 pages) in any of the topics of interest
of the workshop 
- Short position papers (maximum 6 pages) in any of the topics of
interest of the workshop 

Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and selected on the basis of
these reviews. 
Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop. 
All submissions should be made electronically if possible, 
by email attachment and preferably in Postscript or PDF format. 

All submissions must be sent to the workshop contact, 
Although not required for the initial submission, 
we recommend to follow the format guidelines of ESWC (Springer LNCS), 
as this will be the required format for accepted papers.
