FOMI 2008 - 3rd Workshop on Formal Ontologies Meet Industry June 5-6, 2008, Torino, Italy FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS Conference web site: http://www.fomi2008.di.unito.it This event is jointly organized by: - Laboratory for Applied Ontology, ISTC-CNR, Trento - University of Torino - University of Verona CONFERENCE AIMS FOMI is an international forum where academic researchers and industrial practitioners meet to analyze and discuss issues related to methods, theories, tools and applications based on formal ontologies. There is today wide agreement that knowledge modeling and the semantic dimension of information plays an increasingly central role in networked economy: semantic-based applications are relevant in distributed systems such as networked organizations, organizational networks, and in distributed knowledge management. These knowledge models in industry aim to provide a framework for information and knowledge sharing, reliable information exchange, meaning negotiation and coordination between distinct organizations or among members of the same organization. New tools and applications have been and are being developed in diverse application fields, ranging from business to medicine, from engineering to finance, from law to electronics. All these systems have exploited the theoretical results and the practical experience of previous work. In all cases, it has been shown that formal ontologies play a central role in describing in a common and understandable way the logical and practical features of the application domain. The success of the methodologies associated with knowledge modeling and ontologies led to increased need of a comparison between different approaches and results, with the aim of evaluating the interdependencies between theories and methods of formal ontology and the activities, processes, and needs of enterprise organizations. The FOMI 08 Workshop aims to advance in this direction by bringing together researchers and practitioners interested in ontology application, paying particular attention to the topics listed below. CONFERENCE TOPICS *problems in ontology application:* - practical issues in using ontologies in the enterprise - real cases of successful/unsuccessful use of ontology in business - from legacy systems to the new ontology-driven systems *ontology and business:* - ontology and ontological methodologies in business; - adaptation of ontologies for companies and organizations; - ontology effectiveness and evaluation in business *ontology and enterprise:* - ontology-driven enterprise modeling; - ontology development and change within organizations; - ontology-driven representation of products, services, functionalities, design, processes; *ontology and enterprise knowledge:* - ontologies for the know-how; - ontologies for corporate knowledge; *ontology in practice:* - ontologies for electronic catalogs, e-commerce, e-government; - ontologies for marketing; - ontologies for finance; - ontologies for engineering; - ontologies for medical sciences; *ontology and linguistics:* - ontology-driven linguistic representation in organization knowledge; - linguistic problems in standards and in codification processes; - ontologies and multilingualism in business and organizations PROGRAMME The Scientific Programme will include invited talks, oral presentations, poster and demo presentations, and panels. Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and selected on the basis of technical quality, relevance of the described experiences (depending on the type of submission), and clarity of the presentation for the workshop. In particular, we insist that papers should be written for a wide audience. Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop, and published as proceedings. Accepted papers will be electronically published on CD and distributed to participants. Following the past edition, a selection of the best papers accepted at the workshop will be considered for publication in the international journal "Applied Ontology" SUBMISSIONS AND DATES * Format - The maximal paper length is 10 pages, excluding title page and bibliography. - Papers must be submitted in PDF format - Detailed instructions can be found in the conference site. * Deadlines: - Paper Submission: January 7, 2008 - Acceptance Notification: March 3, 2008 - Camera Ready: March 31, 2008 CONFERENCE PROGRAMME COMMITTEE Bill Andersen, Ontology Works, USA Peter Clark, Knowledge Systems, Boeing Maths and Computing Technology, USA Matteo Cristani, University of Verona, Italy Roberta Cuel, University of Trento, Italy Roberta Ferrario, Laboratory for Applied Ontology, CNR, Trento, Italy Michael Gruninger, University of Toronto, Canada Nicola Guarino, Laboratory for Applied Ontology, CNR, Trento, Italy Paulo Leitao, Escola Superior de Tecnologia e de Gestao, Polytechnic Institute of Braganca, Portugal Jorge Posada, VICOMTech, Donostia / San Sebastian, Spain Chris Partridge, 42 Objects Limited, BORO Centre Limited, Brunel University, UK Valentina Tamma, University of Liverpool, UK Matthew West, Shell International Petroleum Company Limited, UK _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(on)_elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
