Meta-modelling is the activity of designing languages through precise
definitions of constructs and rules needed. The result of such an activity
are meta-models. Ontologies are shared conceptualisations of domains of
interest. A frequently used description of the relationship among
meta-models and ontologies is that a valid meta-model is an ontology, but
not all ontologies are modeled explicitly as meta-models. However, currently
the communities of meta-modelling and ontologies only have few overlaps and
the exact relationship has still to be worked out in more detail.


A particular use case for combination of both is to use meta-modelling for
defining mappings between different ontologies expressed in the same
language or even between different ontology languages. The problem of
mapping different ontology languages is essential for the success of the
Semantic Web: one of the key advantages of ontologies is to provide
interoperability among heterogeneous data sources and applications, each
using potentially different ontologies and ontology languages.


The second Workshop on Meta-modelling (WoMM'06) aims at bringing together
researchers and practitioners from the field of meta-modelling as well as


Suggested topics of this workshop include, but are not restricted to:


 - meta-modelling languages and frameworks

 - evaluation of meta-modelling languages 

 - meta-modelling patterns

 - special purpose modelling languages

 - ontological support for meta-modelling

 - meta-modelling for ontologies

 - meta-modelling using ontologies

 - architectures and concepts of meta-modelling tools

 - requirements for meta modelling languages and tools 

 - case studies and applications of meta-modelling





We invite two types of submissions for this workshop:


- short papers (maximum 3500 words)

- regular papers (maximum 7000 words)


All submissions should be formatted according to the LNI style guidelines.
Latex- as well as Word-templates can be found at


Papers should be submitted in PDF format via E-mail to
sbr at aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de and be received by May 29, 2006.


Papers submitted to WoMM will be peer-reviewed by the Programme Committee
and accepted papers will be published in a renowned series. Selected papers
will additionally be published in the International Journal on Enterprise
Modelling and Information Systems Architectures (EMISA). 


Submissions should clearly state the research contribution, their relevance
to the workshop theme, as well as their relation to prior research. We
particularly welcome tool reports and practical reports. Authors are
expected to present accepted papers at the workshop.
