EKAW 2010 Workshop on Ontology Quality


The workshop will take place during EKAW 2010, between October 11th and 15th, 2010
Lisbon, Portugal

Motivation and Objectives

The process of building ontologies has traditionally been an art rather than an engineering process, despite the existence of methodologies for supporting this process. The correct application of methodologies already help guarantee some quality in the resulting ontology, although the quality offered by such methodologies has not,  so far, been measured quantitative or qualitatively.  There are no maturity models for the ontology building processes that might be used for this purpose.  On the other hand, ontology design patterns play an important role in obtaining higher quality ontologies. In the last years, some international efforts have been put on defining such patterns for generic ontology building or oriented to particular domains, so knowing the best and worst practices would also contribute to get better ontologies.

The objective of this workshop is to serve as a forum for sharing the most recent efforts and experiences in this area, disseminating the current best practices and discussing the directions that the field should take. Therefore, this workshop is oriented to any researcher or practitioner working or interested in the following areas:
-    reusing ontologies with informed decisions
-    methods and tools for evaluating the technical quality of ontologies
-    methods and tools for evaluating the quality of the content of ontologies
-    methods and tools for improving ontology construction processes
-    methods and tools for adapting and applying quality standards from other engineering fields to ontology evaluation
-    relevant dimensions of quality for domain and high-level ontologies in specific domains
-    methods and tools for evaluating the practical and social success of ontologies
-    best (and worst) practices in ontology building
-    improving the quality of ontologies through design patterns
-    experiences of quality evaluation in specific domains

Important dates

Submission: June 30th 2010
