Call for Patterns and Problem Proposals    (03)

2nd Workshop on Ontology Patterns (WOP2010)    (04)

http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/WOP:2010    (05)

November 8th, 2010    (06)

Shanghai International Convention Center, Shanghai, China    (07)

*****************************************************    (08)

Submission deadline - August 20 (11:59pm Hawaii time)    (09)

*****************************************************    (010)

This workshop provides an arena for proposing and discussing good and 
bad practices, patterns, pattern-based ontologies, systems, etc. The aim 
is to broaden the pattern community that will develop its own “language” 
for discussing and describing relevant problems and their solutions. The 
workshop will be held in conjunction with ISWC2010 on November 8th. It 
will be a full-day workshop consisting of three parts; papers, 
posters/demos (including pattern posters), and “pattern writing” sessions.    (011)

Specific focus is put on pattern posters and “pattern writing” sessions 
as an opportunity for discussing and reaching consensus on best 
practices in the field. The pattern writing sessions are closely related 
to another interactive event series, namely VoCamps [1], since certain 
types of patterns are in fact small vocabularies. The main difference is 
that this workshop encompasses a broader range of patterns, and the 
focus is on engineering best practices.    (012)

Pattern submissions can be made in two categories:    (013)

* Ontology Design Patterns (ODPs). ODP submissions are reviewed by 
Pattern PC members, e.g. from the quality committee of the ODP 
portal[2], and accepted patterns will be presented at the workshop as 
posters in the joint poster session (together with paper posters as 
demonstrations).    (014)

* Problem proposals. Problem proposals are reviewed and voted by the 
workshop PC and ODP portal committees, and the most interesting ones 
will be the basis of the practical “pattern writing” at the workshop.    (015)

---- Pattern Topics -----    (016)

Ontology design pattern (ODP) submissions will be collected through the 
ODP portal [2], and templates for submission [3] are provided for the 
following types of patterns (see general typology [4] for explanation of 
the types):    (017)

* Content patterns    (018)

* Structural patterns: logical and architecture patterns.    (019)

* Correspondence patterns: re-engineering and alignment patterns.    (020)

For other types of patterns, or if the author wishes to elaborate on 
theoretical rather than practical aspects, a pattern description may be 
submitted as either a research paper or poster paper. A paper submission 
can be accompanied by a pattern submission, however the submissions will 
be reviewed separately.    (021)

---- Problem proposals ----    (022)

Problem proposals should have the following features:    (023)

* A non-trivial problem that currently has no pattern (generally 
accepted solution) available    (024)

* A problem relevant to the workshop community, i.e. an important and 
interesting problem    (025)

* The envisioned solution can be classified under one or more of the ODP 
types described at [4]    (026)

---- Process -----    (027)

Patterns are submitted through the ODP portal [2,3], and reviewed by at 
least two members of the ODP portal quality committee. Accepted patterns 
are to be improved based on the review comments, i.e., an update of the 
patterns in the ODP portal is mandatory. Accepted patterns are then 
presented as posters at the workshop, in a joint poster session with 
paper posters and demos. After the workshop, the patterns may be 
considered for certification in the ODP portal.    (028)

Problem proposals are submitted through the “Post Modeling Issue”[5] 
functionality of the ODP portal. Based on the description of problems 
the workshop PC and the ODP portal committees will vote for the most 
interesting and important problems, which will be selected for the 
“pattern writing” session. At the workshop the person proposing the 
problem has to be present to explain the problem. The workshop 
participants will be divided into groups that will draft a solution for 
the problem. At the end of the session each group presents its draft 
solution, and if it is mature enough it will be posted in the ODP portal.    (029)

---- Best Pattern Award ----    (030)

Reviewers and workshop participants will together distinguish the best 
pattern submission, final decision to be made by the chairs. The best 
pattern award takes into account criteria such as the quality of the 
submission, the relevance and significance of the pattern, the 
presentation of the pattern, and the level of involvement of the author 
during the revision phase and poster session discussions during the 
workshop.    (031)

---- Important Dates ----    (032)

• Submission deadline - August 20    (033)

• Notification of acceptance - September 10    (034)

• Workshop date - November 8    (035)
