Workshop on "Ontologies"
Ontologies serve as a means for establishing a conceptually concise basis for communicating knowledge for many purposes. They are a popular research topic in Artificial Intelligence, e.g. knowledge engineering, natural language processing, intelligent information integration and multi-agent systems. Recently, ontologies are also applied outside the AI world, e.g. in the World Wide Web community that try to represent machine-processable data on the web using ontologies and formal metadata.
For the workshop we intend to gather a diverse range of participants interested in development and application of ontologies.
|Topics of interest include, e.g.:|
We invite contributions that advance the state-of-the-art in topics related to the purpose of the workshop. Persons interested in participating should submit either a technical paper (less than 6000 words) or a position paper (less than 1500 words) addressing new research issues. In addition, we solicit proposals for panel discussions. Submit before June 25, 2001 in electronic form (strongly preferred!) in postscript or pdf in the Springer style format to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
