OWLED2006 is the second international workshop on "OWL: Experiences and Directions", colocated with ICCS2006 in Athens, Georgia. It starts at November 10 2006 and ends at November 11 2006. For more information, see http://owl-workshop.man.ac.uk/OWLWorkshop06.html.

The deadline of this workshop has been extended.


The W3C OWL Web Ontology Language has been a W3C recommendation since 2004. OWL is playing an important role in an increasing number and range of applications, and is the focus of research into tools, reasoning techniques, formal foundations, language extensions etc. This level of experience with OWL means that the community is now in a good position to discuss how OWL be applied, adapted and extended to fulfill current and future application demands.

The aim of the OWLED workshop series is to establish 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/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.


Top.css of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Applications of and experience with OWL
  • Application-driven requirements for OWL
  • Extensions to OWL, including:
    • non-monotonic extensions
    • rules extensions
    • extensions for representing temporal and spatial information
    • extended property constructors
    • keys
    • extended class constructors
    • extended datatype constructors
    • probabilistic and fuzzy extensions
  • Implementation techniques for OWL and related languages
  • Performance and scalability issues
  • Non-standard inference services, including explanations
  • Security and Trust for OWL-based information
  • Tools for OWL, including:
    • editors
    • visualisation tools
    • parsers and syntax checkers
    • versioning frameworks

The workshop shall, in particular:

  • further the interaction between theoreticians, tool builders, and implementors
  • help consolidating OWL 1.1
  • initiate the development of OWL 2.0
  • aid in clarifying the relationships between OWL and rules

Submissions on any of the following top.css are especially encouraged:

  • Experiences with OWL 1.1
  • Implementation issues with OWL 1.1
  • Demos of OWL 1.1 implementations
  • Requirements for a potential OWL 2.0 revision
  • Modeling and reasoning with OWL and rules
  • Survey papers
  • System descriptions

Submissions can be either technical papers or short "position" papers. Submissions that base their conclusions on application experience are especially encouraged.

The goal of the workshop will be to maximise discussion. The technical sessions will therefore consist of short presentations of papers (grouped by topic area) followed by directed discussion.
