     7th Int'l Workshop on Modular Ontologies (WoMO)
            Corunna, Spain, September, 2013
           held in conjunction with LPNMR 2013    (01)

             --- Final Call for Papers ---    (02)


   +++ EXTENDED SUBMISSION DEADLINE: July 12, 2013 +++
========================================================    (04)

+++ Following requests, we have extended the submission deadline to July 12, 
+2013. +++    (05)


* Till Mossakowski, University of Bremen, Germany    (07)

Till Mossakowski is extraordinary professor of computer science at the 
University of Bremen. He is a leading international figure in modular and 
heterogeneous specification of logical theories and ontologies.    (08)

* George Vouros, University of Piraeus, Greece    (09)

George Vouros is a professor in the Department of Digital Systems at the 
University of Piraeus. His research work spans from knowledge representation 
and reasoning, focusing on the engineering, acquisition, evolution, alignment, 
and coordination of ontologies, to multi-agent systems, focusing on agent 
organizations and their adaptation, agents' collaboration and coordination, and 
architectures of collaborative agents.    (010)

MODULARITY, studied for years in software engineering, allows mechanisms for 
easy and flexible reuse, generalization, structuring, maintenance, design 
patterns, and comprehension. In formal and applied ontology, modularity is 
central to reducing the complexity of designing and understanding ontologies, 
and to facilitating ontology verification, reasoning, development, maintenance 
and integration.    (012)

Recent research on ontology modularity shows substantial progress in 
foundations of modularity, techniques of modularization and modular 
development, distributed reasoning and empirical evaluation. These results 
provide a solid foundation and exciting prospects for further research and 
development.    (013)

The workshop continues a series of successful events that have been an 
excellent venue for practitioners and researchers to discuss latest and current 
work. The most recent WoMOs were held at ESSLLI 2011 and FOIS/ICBO 2012. This 
time WoMO is organised as a workshop of LPNMR 2013: the 12th International 
Conference on Logic Programming and Non-monotonic Reasoning. LPNMR is 
well-established as the main conference in the field.     (014)

The workshop will be open to all attendants of LPMNR'13 and its workshops. 
Workshop speakers will be required to register for WoMO via the LPMNR'13 
website. Registration for WoMO only will be possible.    (015)

STUDENT TRAVEL GRANTS: With the generous support of the IAOA, we are happy to 
provide funding to students. Priority will be given to student presenters and 
authors of accepted papers. More details will be published at a later date.    (016)

TOPICS include, but are not limited to:    (017)

- What is modularity?: kinds of modules and their properties; modules vs. 
contexts; design patterns; granularity of representation;     (018)

- Logical/foundational studies: modular ontology languages; reconciling 
inconsistencies across modules; formal structuring of modules; heterogeneity; 
hybrid theories; intertheory relations (conservativity, interpretability, 
strong equivalence, inseparability, etc.)    (019)

- Algorithmic approaches: distributed and incremental reasoning; modularization 
and module extraction; sharing, linking, reuse; privacy; complexity of 
reasoning; implemented systems;     (020)

- Evaluation of modularizations: case studies or other analyses of ontology 
modularizations (why it is modularized in a certain way, what does it address, 
how can it be improved); how to measure the adequacy of a modularization; 
comparison of modularizations with respect to philosophical, logical, 
reasoning, cognitive, or social aspects;    (021)

- Applications: semantic web; life sciences; earth sciences; bio-ontologies; 
natural language processing; space and time; ambient intelligence; social 
intelligence; technology and engineering; collaborative ontology development 
and ontology versioning.    (022)


Paper Submission: July 12, 2013 (extended)
Notification:  August 19, 2013
Camera ready: September 2, 2013
Workshop: September 15, 2013    (024)


We welcome submissions on modularity in a broad sense. The workshop is open to 
papers of theoretical or practical nature from various disciplines. Submissions 
can be long papers (11 pages) or short papers (5 pages), formatted according to 
Springer LNCS style (seehttp://www.springer.com/comp/lncs/Authors.html), 
prepared in PDF format and submitted no later than the submission deadline, 
through the EasyChair Submission System 
(seehttp://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=womo2013).    (026)

Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the program committee. 
Accepted papers will be made available in the proceedings to be published 
electronically in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings series (see 
http://www.ceur-ws.org). Proceedings of WoMO 2011 and 2012 can be found at 
http://www.booksonline.iospress.nl/Content/View.aspx?piid=20369 and at
