CALL FOR PAPERS for the 12th International Conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics (ODBASE 2013)

February 1, 2013


*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).


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

– Ubiquitous and Mobile Information Systems

– Information Governance


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:

The final proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science). Author instructions can be found at:

The role of Semantics in the future Internet

May 12, 2009

Here is an easy movie that presents the future Internet.  In my article  that was published last year at the Future Internet Symposium 2008 held in Vienna, Austria I discussed to role of business semantics management in here, and the need for a kind of DNS of information consisting of data services compiled from and orchestrated by semantic patterns .
