Call for Papers: Workshop on Issues in Ontology Development and Use

UK e-Science All Hands Meeting, 10th - 13th September 2007

As semantic technologies begin to be taken up and used seriously within
different fields of research, they are reaching a critical phase in
their development. There are serious challenges to be addressed if they
are to deliver the promise of semantic integration of distributed
digital resources. Preliminary investigations of the issues surrounding
the development and use of ontologies suggest that the e-Science
community is now stumbling across a whole range of issues which first
surfaced within software engineering twenty (or more) years ago.

The aim of this workshop is bring together ontology users, domain
experts, ontology developers and tool developers, members of the
ontology standards, and library and information sciences communities to
share experiences of this key technology for e-Science and explore how
problems that are beginning to emerge might be addressed.

Possible topics include, but are not restricted to:

· methods and tools for knowledge elicitation and representation,
including user participatory approaches

· managing change and evolution in requirements and use

· designing for scalability and re-use

· standards and guidelines for maintainability

· ontology languages, tools and infrastructure

· socio-political dynamics arising from the interplay between the
increasing formalisation of shared knowledge and the practices of
scientific research.
