CALL FOR PAPERS: 3rd International Workshop on Debugging Ontologies and Ontology Mappings, May 26, 2014, Anissaras/Hersonissou, GREECE

http://www.ida.liu.se/~patla/conferences/WoDOOM14/

(WoDOOM)- held in conjunction with ESWC 2014 (May 25-29)

Developing
ontologies is not an easy task and, as the ontologies grow in size, 
they are likely to show a number of defects. Such ontologies, although 
often useful, also lead to problems when used in semantically-enabled 
applications. Wrong conclusions may be derived or valid conclusions may 
be missed. Defects in ontologies can take different forms. Syntactic 
defects are usually easy to find and to resolve. Defects regarding style
  include such things as unintended redundancy. More interesting and 
severe defects are the modeling defects which require domain knowledge 
to detect and resolve such as defects in the structure, and semantic 
defects such as unsatisfiable concepts and inconsistent ontologies.

Further, during the recent years more and more mappings between 
ontologies with overlapping information have been generated, e.g. using 
ontology alignment systems, thereby connecting the ontologies in 
ontology networks. This has led to a new opportunity to deal with 
defects as the mappings and other ontologies in the network may be used 
in the debugging of a particular ontology in the network. It also has 
introduced a new difficulty as the mappings may not always be correct 
and need to be debugged themselves.

This workshop intends to be a forum where issues in debugging ontologies and mappings between 
ontologies are discussed.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- detecting and repairing semantic defects in ontologies
- detecting and repairing modeling defects in ontologies
- detecting and repairing defects in the structure of ontologies
- detecting and repairing defects in mappings between ontologies
- debugging ontology networks
- debugging modular ontologies
- debugging defects in linked data
- justifications
- belief revision for debugging
- ontology patterns for debugging
- interactive ontology debugging
- visualization for ontology debugging
- connection of ontology debugging with other ontology engineering tasks
  (e.g. ontology development, ontology alignment, ontology comprehension,
  ontology sense making, ontology evolution, ontology enrichment)
- case studies
