                                  Final CALL FOR PAPERS
                     OWL Reasoner Evaluation Workshop (ORE 2012)
                        Collocated with IJCAR 2012 Conference


OWL is a logic-based ontology language standard designed to promote
interoperability, particularly in
the context of the (Semantic) Web. The standard has encouraged the
development of numerous OWL reasoning
systems, and such systems are already key components of many applications.

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


We solicit submissions which describe or evaluate one or more OWL reasoning
and query answering systems.
We invite submission of both SHORT SYSTEM DESCRIPTION papers and LONG
Survey papers describing and comparing multiple systems are also welcome.
Papers should include a description of
the system(s) in question, including:

    * language subset(s) supported;

    * syntax(es) and interface(s) supported;

    * reasoning algorithm(s) implemented;

    * important optimisation techniques used;

    * particular advantages (or disadvantages);

    * application focus (e.g., large datasets, large ontologies, complex
ontologies, etc.);

    * other novel or interesting features.

Full papers should also include an evaluation (see guidelines), preferably
using (some of) the datasets provided.
Short papers may also include a brief performance analysis.


If possible, evaluations should use the standard datasets provided and
present results for the following reasoning
tasks (where relevant for the system being evaluated):

    * Classification. The dataset consists of a set of OWL ontologies. The
total time taken to load and classify
each ontology should be reported. It would also be interesting to report on
comparisons of the computed taxonomy
with the "reference" taxonomies that are provided with the dataset.

    * Class satisfiability. The dataset consists of a set of OWL
ontologies, and for each ontology one or more
class URIs. The time taken to perform each test along with the
satisfiability result for each class should be reported.

    * Ontology satisfiability. That dataset consists of a set of OWL
ontologies. The total time taken to load and test
the satisfiability of each ontology should be reported, along with the
satisfiability result for each ontology.

    * Logical entailment. The dataset consists of a set of pairs of OWL
ontologies. The total time take to determine if
the first ontology entails the second ontology should be reported, along
with the entailment result (true or false).

    * Instance retrieval. The dataset is an OWL ontology and a class
expression. For each ontology the total time taken
to load the ontology and retrieve the sets of instances for each class
expression should be reported. It would also be
interesting to report on comparisons of the retrieved instances with the
"reference" set that are provided with the dataset.

It is suggested that full results of any evaluations performed are made
available via the web, with summaries of the results
being included in the papers submission as space permits.


Long papers must be no longer than 12 pages, while short papers must be no
longer than 6 pages.

Submissions must be in PDF and should be formatted according to the
Springer LNCS guidelines.
Submission is electronic through easychair.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the program committee. Selected
papers are to be published as a
volume of CEUR workshop proceedings.


    * Submission of abstracts: April 9th, 2012

    * Paper submission deadline: April 16th, 2012

    * (Optional) Submission of systems to SEALS platform: April 16th, 2012

    * Notification of acceptance: May 7th, 2012

    * Camera-ready papers due: May 25th, 2012

    * Workshop: July 1st, 2012 (Half-day)
