>BIS  is an international conference with a long history. Although it was
>to  many  research topics related to business information systems, one
>aspect  has  not  been  discussed yet - ontologies. According  to  the
>accepted  definition, ontology is a formal, explicit specification of
>a  shared
>conceptualization. A special session organized within forthcoming BIS
>2003 is to
>fill this gap.
>Ontologies   are  developed  to  provide  a  machine-processable
>semantics   of
>information  that  is  exchanged  between  different  agents,  both
>humans  and
>software. They started in the Philosophy, evolved in Artificial
>Intelligence but
>nowadays  other  research communities adopt them very quickly.
>Ontologies  face
>strong  expectations, especially in the business area: Knowledge
>Management  and
>Electronic Commerce. Ontologies are heavily exploited by Semantic Web -
>a vision
>to  link  data on the Web in a way that it can be used by machines not
>just  for
>display  purposes,  but for automation, integration and  reuse  of
>data  across
>various applications.
>There  are  a  lot of very interesting and promising projects that make
>use  of
>ontologies.  Many different standards emerge. Many groups develop own
>tools  to
>facilitate  use of languages. No one is able to track all activities.
>Often  we
>are unsure, which proposal will become a standard, which solution is
>most widely
>used.  It will be advantageous to compare different solutions,
>proposals, tools,
>The  goal  of  this special session is to share experiences about
>systems,  exchange ideas about improvements of existing standards and
>tools  and
>creation of new systems, principles and applications. Its expected
>outcome is  a
>common vision about the future directions.
>This special session is dedicated to groups who contribute to the
>development of
>ontologies  that can be used in Business Information Systems. We are
>looking for innovative applications taking advantage of the ontologies.
>Topics of Interest
>OntoBIS  2003  invites  submissions related to all aspects  of  the
>Papers MUST clearly demonstrate relevance to the usage of ontologies in
>Information Systems. Suggested topics include but are not limited to:
>*   Business Specific Ontologies
>*   Ontologies for Data Warehousing, Electronic Commerce, Workflow, ERP,
>     etc.
>*   Ontologies Supporting E-Business
>*   Ontologies for Enterprise Integration
>*   Metadata and Ontologies
>*   Economic Models, Financial Justification of Ontologies
>*   Semantic Web for Decision Support

>*   Semantic Web-enabled Web Services
>*   Agent Communication and Applications in the Semantic Web
>*   Visual modeling of Ontologies for BIS
>*   Electronic Trading Systems and Marketplaces
>*   Ontology Languages: e.g. Ontolingua, RDF, XOL, OIL, DAML-S, DAML+OIL
>*   Web Services Integration Standards (description, discovery and
>     interoperation)
>*   Data/Information/Knowledge Integration by Use of Ontologies
>*   Use of Foundational Ontologies in BIS
>The   successful   papers  should  focus  on  complex  solutions
>rather   than
>technological aspects.
>Papers  to  be  considered for regular conference presentation  and
>should  be  submitted  via the regular conference submission  process.
>instructions,  especially formatting, will be published on conference
>Web  page

>A.  Research papers
>Papers  should  not  exceed 5000 words. They should describe  original
>(practical  or  theoretical). Theoretical papers should provide an
>overview  of
>area  of  research  closely related to ontologies in BIS. Practical
>papers  can
>describe an implemented tool or service that contributes to the ontologies.
>B.  Work in progress
>Papers  should not exceed 2500 words. They may present some aspects
>related  to
>ontologies and describe work that it is still in progress but its
>results may be
>interesting for a broader audience.
>Important Dates
