===================================================== ===================================================== Building and Applying Ontologies for the Semantic Web ===================================================== December 2005 Covilhã – Portugal http://baosw.epia05.di.ubi.pt held in conjunction with 12th Portuguese Conference on Artificial Intelligence sponsored by APPIA, the Portuguese Association of AI http://epia05.di.ubi.pt Ontologies promise a shared and common understanding of a domain that can be communicated between people and application systems. Therefore, they have emerged as an important research area since the 1990’s. Ontologies are used for different purposes (natural language processing, e-commerce, e-learning, knowledge management, semantic web, information retrieval, etc) by different research communities (knowledge engineering, database, software engineering, etc). The emergence of the Semantic Web has marked another stage in the evolution of the ontology field. According to Berners-Lee, the Semantic Web is an extension of the current Web in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation. This cooperation can be achieved by using shared knowledge-components. Therefore ontologies have become a key instrument in developing the Semantic Web. They interweave human understanding of symbols with their machine processability. This workshop addresses the problems of building and applying ontologies in the Semantic Web and other areas listed below, as well as the theoretical and practical challenges arising from these applications. We invite contributions to enhance the state-of-the-art of creating, managing and using ontologies. Topics of Interest: ===================================================== Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Ontology Engineering: • methodologies • capture and learning • evaluation • management • evolution • ontology learning Semantic Interoperability • composition and modularity • combining, merging, mapping and alignment • translating and transforming • ontology language interoperability Ontologies for Information Sharing • ontology-based Information integration • mediators and brokers • agents and ontologies Ontology Applications • semantic web • knowledge management • e-commerce, e-government, e-learning and e-science • information retrieval • p2p networks • web services • annotation Invited Speaker: ===================================================== Christoph Bussler Science Foundation Ireland Professor and Executive Director Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI), National University of Ireland, Ireland http://hometown.aol.com/chbussler/ Workshop format and attendance: ===================================================== All submitted papers will be peer reviewed and selected for presentation on the basis of these reviews. Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop. The schedule assumes a one day workshop. The workshop will consist of the following components: one invited speaker, technical presentations of accepted papers, and general discussion (some time will be allocated to discuss among the workshop participants about emerging topics). Attendance will be limited to workshop paper authors and a very limited set of members of the community. Workshop attendees are required to register for the main EPIA 2005 conference. For more information, please look up the conference website at http://epia05.di.ubi.pt Submission procedure: ===================================================== We encourage the submission of high-quality original work. Papers must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS Series guidelines (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/), must not exceed 12 pages and must be written in English. It will be blind reviewed. In order to make blind reviewing possible, authors should omit their names and affiliations from the paper. Also, while the references should include all published literature relevant to the paper, including previous works of the authors, it should not include unpublished works. Avoid including any information in the body of the paper or references that would identify the authors or their institutions. Such information can be added to the final camera-ready version for publication. Workshop full papers of higher quality will be selected for publication in the main volume of the conference proceedings (Lectures Notes in Artificial Intelligence - LNAI). The remaining accepted papers will be published in local workshop proceedings, in hard-copy and in the web. At least one of the authors of accepted papers has to register for the EPIA 2005, otherwise the paper will not be included in the proceedings. The submission process will be available on the conference site. The only format allowed for electronic submission is PDF. Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three program committee members and/or additional reviewers/referees. Important dates: ===================================================== 27-May-05 - Paper submission 15-Jul-05 - Notification of paper acceptance 28-Jul-05 - Camera-ready paper submission 05-Dec-05 - Conference begins Program Committee: ===================================================== Aldo Gangemi, Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies, Italy Andreas Hotho, Kassel University, Germany Boris Motik, FZI, Germany Christopher Brewster, Sheffield University, UK Christopher Welty, Knowledge Structures Group, IBM, USA Eugénio Oliveira, Porto University, Portugal Heiner Stuckenschmidt, Vrije University, Netherlands John Domingue, Open University, England Jorge Santos, Porto Superior Engineering Institute, Portugal Jose Iria, Sheffield University, UK Leo Obrst, MITRE Corporation, USA Ljiljana Stojanovic, FZI, Germany Luis Camarinha-Matos, New University of Lisbon, Portugal Maria Vargas-Vera, Open University, England Mariano Fernandez-Lopez, Polytechnical University of Madrid, Spain Marta Sabou, Vrije University, Netherlands Michael Gruninger, National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA Oscar Corcho, Isoco, Spain Peter Mika, Vrije University, Netherlands Philipp Cimiano, AIFB, Karlsruhe University, Germany Rose Dieng, INRIA, France Siegfried Handschuh, Ontoprise, Germany Stefano Borgo, Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technology, Italy Steffen Staab, Koblenz University, Germany Ubbo Visser, Bremen University, Germany Virginia Brilhante, Federal University of Amazonas, Brazil Virginia Dignum, Utrecht University, Netherlands Ying Ding, DERI, Insbruck University, Austria York Sure, AIFB, Karlsruhe University, Germany Organizing Committee: ===================================================== H.Sofia Pinto, IST/INESC-ID, Portugal <sofia_(on)_algos.inesc-id.pt> Andreia Malucelli, Porto University/PUCPR, Portugal <malu_(on)_fe.up.pt> Fred Freitas, Federal University of Alagoas, Brazil <fred.freitas_(on)_tci.ufal.br> Christoph Tempich, Karlsruhe University, Germany <cte_(on)_aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de> Workshop Venue: ===================================================== EPIA 2005 will be held in the city of Covilhã, the city of snow and wool, in the Serra da Estrela National Park, which lies in the east of Portugal and hosted by the Department of Computer Science of the University of Beira Interior.
