12th OWL: Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED)

9th – 10th October 2015, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

The aim of the OWL: Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED) is to establish an international forum for the OWL community, where practitioners in industry and academia, tool developers, and others interested in OWL can describe real and potential applications, share experiences and discuss requirements for language extensions/modifications.

OWL has become the representational model of choice for supporting interoperability in many industries. With its rise in popularity, as well as the number of publicly available ontologies, it becomes important to focus on the processes by which ontologies can be engineered through reuse.

In this edition of OWLED we aim to bridge the gap between ontology engineering practices and software engineering, where reuse is common practice, and we welcome submissions of papers describing reuse methods employed throughout the ontology development cycle; modeling / terminological decisions, alignment and comparison between ontologies, how ontologies are stored, versioned, distributed, and consumed over the Web. As with previous editions, we also welcome proposals for improving the OWL standard.

This year we have a special ontology track, with submissions of ontologies that present interesting modeling problems or that can generate challenging tasks with respect to OWLED topics (e.g., ontologies that are challenging for reasoners to handle).

OWLED is conveniently co-located with the 14th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) – the premier international forum for the Semantic Web community. ISWC will take place right after OWLED, from October 11th to the 15th, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
