                               1 December 2009
                        Held in Conjunction with the

AOW 2009 is the fifth in a series of workshops on ontologies held
in the Australasian region.

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.

Important Dates:
Paper submission deadline: 25 September 2009
Notification of acceptance/rejection: 23 October 2009
Camera-ready copies due: 13 November 2009
AOW 2009: 1 December 2009

Papers must be submitted via the EasyChair system at

 http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aow2009

of 0(AUD) being awarded to the author(s) of the best paper.
