OWL: EXPERIENCES AND DIRECTIONS Second International Workshop Athens, GA, USA, 10-11 November 2006 Co-located with ISWC06 and RuleML06. http://owl-workshop.man.ac.uk/OWLWorkshop06.html Registration is now open! Authors of accepted papers plus programme committee members are invited to participate in the workshop. The registration is also open for other interested people. Prospective participants that have not received an invitation should send an email to owl-ws-organizers_(on)_mindswap.org with a one-paragraph statement on their rationale to attend prior to registration. Oneline registration can be done at http://www.georgiacenter.uga.edu/conferences/2006/Nov/10/rule.phtml Call for Participation ---------------------- The W3C OWL Web Ontology Language has been a W3C recommendation since 2004. OWL is playing an important role in an increasing number and range of applications, and is the focus of research into tools, reasoning techniques, formal foundations, language extensions etc. This level of experience with OWL means that the community is now in a good position to discuss how OWL be applied, adapted and extended to fulfill current and future application demands. The aim of the OWLED workshop series is to establish a forum for practitioners in industry and academia, tool developers, and others interested in OWL to describe real and potential applications, to share experience, and to discuss requirements for language extensions/modifications. The workshop will bring users, implementors and researchers together to measure the state of need against the state of the art, and to set an agenda for research and deployment in order to incorporate OWL-based technologies into new applications. Characteristics of OWLED06 -------------------------- The 2006 OWLED workshop shall in particular - further the interaction between theoreticians, tool builders, and implementors; - help consolidating OWL 1.1; - initiate the development of OWL 2.0; and - aid in clarifying the relationships between OWL and rules. For OWLED06, we focus particularly on the following topics: - Experiences with OWL 1.1 - Implementation issues with OWL 1.1 - Demos of OWL 1.1 implementations - Requirements for a potential OWL 2.0 revision - Modeling and reasoning with OWL and rules - Survey papers - System descriptions Workshop Format --------------- The goal of the workshop will be to maximise discussion. The technical sessions will therefore consist of short presentations of papers (grouped by topic area) followed by directed discussion. Further presentations and system demonstrations will be made as part of a poster session. The workshop may also have one session in common with the Second International Conference on Rules and Rule Markup Languages for the Semantic Web (RuleML06) in which the integration of OWL with rules languages will be discussed.
