CALL FOR PAPERS for the 12th International Conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics (ODBASE 2013)February 1, 2013
CALL FOR PAPERS
*The 12th International Conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics (ODBASE 2013)*
(10-11 Sept 2013, Graz, Austria)
Pieter De Leenheer — VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands & Collibra NV, Belgium
Dejing Dou — University of Oregon, USA
Haixun Wang — Microsoft Research Asia, China
Prof. Dr. Manfred Hauswirth — Vice-Director of the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI), Ireland
The conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics for Large Scale Information Systems (ODBASE’13) provides a forum on the use of ontologies and data semantics in novel applications. Of particular relevance to ODBASE 2013 are papers that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as databases, social networks, mobile systems, artificial intelligence, information retrieval, and computational linguistics. We also encourage the submission of research and practical experience papers concerning scale issues in ontology management, information integration, and information extraction, as well as papers that examine the information needs of various applications. This year, in addition to its traditional focus on the management of semantically rich information, ODBASE will have special themes on Semantic Data Mining and Information Governance.
We encourage submissions in areas that connect semantics with the entire data flow cycle: data acquisition e.g. from social networks and mobile devices, data stream processing, e.g., filtering and event contextualization, data analysis,e.g., pattern and knowledge discovery, to dissemination, e.g., publish/subscribe.
ODBASE’13 intends to draw a highly diverse body of researchers and practitioners by being part of the Federated conferences Event “On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems 2013 (OnTheMove’13)” that co-locates three conferences: ODBASE’13, DOA-SVI’13 (International Symposium on Secure Virtual Infrastructures), and CoopIS’13(International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems).
*TOPICS OF INTEREST*
Specific areas of interest to ODBASE’13 include but are not limited to:
Management of Semantically Expressive Information
– Semantic data modeling
– Semantic integration, including ontology matching, merging, etc.
– Ontology engineering and metadata management
– Ontology-based data management
– Governance aspects such as workflows, roles and responsibilities in semantic information management
Large Scale and Complex Information Management and Analysis
– Semantic indexing, search and query answering in large volumes of data
– Annotation, extraction, summarization, and integration of heterogeneous data resources
– Semantic data mining
– Semantic social network analysis
– Semantic services for big data
Semantic Management of Complex Event Processing
– Semantics in event-driven architectures
– Event algebras, event schemas and type systems
– Event-driven business process management
– Events in social sensing&Collective Intelligence
Applications, Evaluations, and Experiences in the following domains:
– Web 2.0 and Semantic Web,
– Linked Data Web
– Online Social Networks
– Hypertext, multimedia, and hypermedia
– Enterprise-wide Information Systems
– eCommerce, eScience, and Virtual Organizations

Conference Abstract Submission Deadline: May 11, 2013
Conference Paper Submission Deadline: May 18, 2013
Acceptance Notification: June 25, 2013
Camera Ready Due: July 16, 2013
Author Registration Due: July 16, 2013
ODBASE 2013 will consider two categories of papers: research and experience. Research papers must contain novel, unpublished results. Experience papers must describe existing, real-world scale systems; preference will be given to papers that describe software products or systems that are in wide experimental and industry use.
Papers submitted to ODBASE’13 must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review for another workshop or conference. All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All papers will be refereed by at least three members of the program committee, and at least two will be experts from industry in the case of practice reports. All submissions must be in English. Submissions must not exceed 18 pages in the final camera-ready paper style. Submissions must be laid out according to the final camera-ready formatting instructions and must be submitted in PDF format. Paper submission site: http://www.onthemove-conferences.org/index.php/odbase13
The final proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science). Author instructions can be found at:http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html
At the Enterprise Data World Conference in March 2010 in San Francisco, I will be talking about business semantics-driven integration of service-oriented applications. Unlike other so-called ontology languages that focus on formal aspects, Business semantics define the contextual meaning of key business assets for your organization in terms of business facts and rules.
Business Semantics have a dual utility: the derived business semantics do not only provide a shared glossary to augment human understanding, but can also be used to automate meaningful data integration during process integration.
Many organisations start to realise the potential of business semantics to leverage information management, and take initiatives at the grass roots. However sustainable and meaningful business semantics management must be organised and cultivated organisation-wide by the right balance of people, methods, and tools. In this talk you will learn that:
- your organisation already has much valuable metadata as building blocks for business semantics;
- reconciliation of metadata into sharable and reusable semantic patterns requires a systematic approach and careful selection of technologies;
- application of business semantics for EAI is much better than tradional point-to-point or hub-and spoke approaches;
- identify business drivers that convince your senior management to prioritise and free the necessary budget and resources accordingly;
- outline a roadmap to implement business semantics management as part of the overall information architecture and governance plan.
We illustrate these points with realistic case studies, and point out important challenges for the future. Rendez-vous Wed 17 March at 9h30 in the Hilton at Union Sq., San Francisco.
Keynote at ESAS/COMPSAC2008 (Turku, Finland): Ontological Foundations for Evolving Agent CommunitiesAugust 1, 2008
De Leenheer, P. (2008) Keynote: Ontological Foundations for Evolving Agent Communities. In Proc of 32nd Annual IEEE International Computer Software and Applications Conference (COMPSAC 2008), IEEE Press, pp. 523-528
In July, I was invited for a talk at the 32nd Annual IEEE International Computer Software and Applications Conference in the track of Engineering Semantic Agent Systems.
Research in ontology management has reached a certain level of maturity, however, there is still little understanding of, and technological support for, the methodological and evolutionary aspects of ontologies as resources. Yet these are crucial in distributed and collaborative worlds such as the Semantic Web, where ontologies and their communities of use naturally and mutually co-evolve. Through a deep understanding of the real-time, community-driven, evolution of so-called ontologies, a semantic agent system can be made operationally relevant and sustainable over long periods of time. Such a paradigm shift in knowledge-intensive and community-driven systems would affect knowledge sharing and communication across diverse communities in business, industry, and society. This talk gives an overview of the practical and theoretical challenges and limitations, and based on that introduce an ontological and methodological foundation for community evolution processes.
