KROW 2008 is one of two workshops forming an integral part of the program
of the 11th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge

The primary aim of the workshop is to bring together active researchers in
the broad area of ontologies. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

- Ontology models and theories
- Ontologies and the Semantic Web
- Interoperability in ontologies
- Ontologies and Multi-agent systems
- Description logics for ontologies
- Reasoning with ontologies
- Ontology harvesting on the web
- Ontology of agents and actions
- Ontology visualisation
- Ontology engineering and management
- Ontology-based information extraction  and retrieval
- Ontology merging, alignment and integration
- Web ontology languages
- Formal concept analysis and ontologies

The proceedings of the three workshops in the AOW series were published as
volumes 58, 72, and 85 of the Conferences in Research and Practice in
Information Technology (CRPIT) series (http://crpit.com/), and the KROW 2008
proceedings will be published as volume 90 of the same series. Extended
versions of selected papers will appear in a special issue of the journal
Applied Artificial Intelligence.
