The 1st International Workshop on Ontology for e-Technologies (OET 2009)
6-7 May, 2009 - Milan, Italy
In conjunction with the 11th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems (ICEIS 2009)

Scope and Topics
Ontologies are formal, explicit specifications of shared conceptualizations, representing concepts and their relations that are relevant for a given domain of discourse and serve as a means for establishing a conceptually concise basis for communicating knowledge for many purposes. There is a huge interest in the area of engineering ontologies for a very wide range of interesting applications and, in fact, the community in that field is steadily growing. Also in recent years, we have seen a surge of interest in other fields than ontology engineering that tackle the discovery and automatic creation of complex, multirelational knowledge structures. The expected central role of ontologies in the organization and functioning of the Semantic Web has been well documented in recent years and ontology is playing a central role fields as E-Business, E-Commerce, E-Learning, E-Health.. Somewhat less traditional is the role of ontologies in incremental approaches to Knowledge Discovery, in which ontologies and machine learning methods are used in combination to mine, interpret and (re-)organize knowledge. Currently, ontologies are mostly developed (including ontology construction, extension, mapping and merging) as well as used (ontology population through knowledge markup) by a manual process, which is very ineffective and may cause major barriers to their large-scale use in such areas as Knowledge Discovery and Semantic Web and in the introduction of new and effective services. This workshop aims to bring together researchers interested in the field of ontology engineering in order to discuss and analyze important characteristics, open research issues and recent research developments on the field. We encourage submissions on all topics related to ontology engineering, including theoretical work on the issues involved directly or indirectly with change as well as applications or implemented systems related to such issues.
