ISWC 2008

OWLED 2008 — OWL: Experiences and Directions

Fifth International Workshop

co-located with ISWC 2008

26-27 October 2008, Karlsruhe, Germany

Room: Johann Peter-Hebel-Saal

The OWL: Experiences and Direction (OWLED) workshop series is a forum for practitioners in industry and academia, tool developers, and others interested in OWL to describe real and potential applications, to share experience, and to discuss requirements for language extensions and/or modifications. The workshop will bring users, implementors and researchers together to measure the state of need against the state of the art, and to set an agenda for research and deployment in order to incorporate OWL-based technologies into new applications.

This year’s 2008 OWLED workshop will be co-located with the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), this year held in Karslruhe, Germany on October 26 - 27, 208. The workshop will concentrate on issues related to the development and W3C standardization of OWL 2, but other issues related to OWL are also of interest, particularly those related to the task forces set up at OWLED 2007.

The workshop encourages participants to work together and will give space for discussions on various topics, to be decided and published at some point in the future. We ask participants to have a look at these topics and the accepted submissions before the workshop, and to prepare single “slides” that can be presented during these discussions. There will also be formal presentation of submissions to the workshop.

For more information see the OWLED 2008 web site.
