Special Issue Applied Ontology out now:
Ontological Foundations of Conceptual Modelling
Guest-edited by Giancarlo Guizzardi and Terry Halpin

The objective of this issue is to collect innovative and high-quality
research contributions regarding the role played by formal ontology,
philosophical logics, cognitive sciences and linguistics to the
foundations of conceptual modeling. The issue should be of interest to
several academic communities, including primarily the communities of
applied ontology and conceptual modeling, but also the ones of database
and information systems design, knowledge engineering, semantic
interoperability and information integration, enterprise modeling, agent
and object orientation, software engineering (in particular domain and
requirements engineering), natural-language processing, business rules and
model-driven engineering.

About Applied Ontology
Applied Ontology (Editors-in-Chief: Nicola Guarino and Mark Musen) is a
journal whose focus is on information content in its broadest sense. It
focuses on two broad kinds of content-based research activities:
ontological analysis and conceptual modeling. The former includes any
attempt to investigate the nature and structure of a domain of interest
using rigorous philosophical or logical tools; the latter concerns the
cognitive and linguistic structures we use to model the world, as well as
the various analysis tools and methodologies we adopt for producing useful
computational models.

Applied Ontology (ISSN 1570-5838) will be published in 1 volume of 4
issues in 2009 (Volume 4). Institutional subscription (print and online):
€443 / US$640 (including postage and handling). Check www.iospress.nl for
information on individual subscription prices.
