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 - Ontologies for e-research - Linking open data - Significant ontology applications The proceedings of the four previous workshops were published as volumes in the Conferences in Research and Practice in Information Technology (CRPIT) series (http://crpit.com/), and this will again be the case for AOW 2009. As with the previous workshops, we are investigating the possibility of extended versions of selected papers appearing in a special issue of a suitable journal. Submission information such as format etc. can be found on the CRPIT website: http://crpit.com/AuthorsSubmitting.html. The page limit is 10 pages.
