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. The applied ontology editorial team is very proud of this special issue and wants to share some contents with you.

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): EUR443 / US$640 (including postage and handling). Check www.iospress.nl for information on individual subscription prices. _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(at)_elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
