Call for Papers
Approaching to the twentieth anniversary, the WWW today is a mature  
environment supporting the development of distributed applications  
without imposing any particular limitation. Technologies,  
methodologies and standards converge toward full operational  
capabilities by being service oriented, with a focus on statelessness,  
low coupled, modular, and semantic interoperable.
In this context the issues related to the quality of data and process  
representation are crucial, as it is required to deal with data that  
are valuable, expressive, shareable e and manipulable at the same  
time. In this context the role of good quality ontology (i.e. good  
quality conceptualizations, encoded in portable and extensible format)  
acquires more and more relevance.

This workshop aims to focus on content issues, such as methodologies  
and tools concerned with modeling good ontologies, approaches to  
ontology content evaluation, quality measures, ontology content  
management (e.g. metadata, libraries, and registration), ontology  
documentation, etc. The workshop also aims to give a special attention  
to ontology content issues in: Business, human resources and  
employment, healthcare and life sciences, and Web 3.0. We welcome  
papers and (past/planned) project descriptions that discuss ontology  
aspects, particularly:
Research papers presenting theoretical solutions, but with a clear  
illustration on how these solutions can be applied in industry.
Position papers presenting opinions on some aspect of ontology  
practice, or describing work that is still in progress, but  
sufficiently mature to warrant attention.
Business experience and case studies specifying requirements,  
challenges, or opportunities of modeling and applying ontologies in  


Methodology and Engineering

We invite (A) Research papers describing original studies of no more  
than 10 pages; (B) Position papers presenting opinions or work in  
progress of no more than 6 pages; and (C) Business experience and case  
studies of no more than 8 pages. All submitted papers will be  
evaluated by at least three members of the program committee, based on  
originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of  
expression. Detailed formatting instructions can be found at:
The final proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS.

excludes a paper from the proceedings. The paper submission page is
