FOMI 2011 - 5TH Workshop on Formal Ontologies Meet Industry    (04)

http://www.fomi2011.nl/    (05)

July 7-8, 2011 – Delft, Netherlands    (06)



FOMI is an international forum where academic researchers and
industrial practitioners meet to analyze and discuss application
issues related to methods, theories, tools and applications based on
formal ontologies. There is today wide agreement that knowledge
modeling and the semantic dimension of information plays an
increasingly central role in networked economy: semantic-based
applications aim to provide a framework for information and knowledge
sharing, reliable information exchange, meaning negotiation and
coordination between distinct organizations or among members of the
same organization.
Theoretical research that is driven by the issues that have been
raised by recent work in the more applied domains, but often, actual
implementation brings up unexpected problems and issues. On the other
hand, there is an increasing need for solid theoretical foundations of
practical applications of ontologies, based on philosophy,
linguistics, artificial intelligence and logic.    (09)

The FOMI 2011 Workshop aims to collect useful experiences and lessons
learned by the presentation of (1) experienced problems in ontology
application, (2) new insights on known problematic issues, (3) new
results and observations in ontology implementation, (4) lessons
learned on the best way to apply ontological methodologies to real
FOMI 2011 will facilitate open discussion and experience sharing. Very
similar problems arise in disparate ontology applications and an open
discussion helps to highlight commonalities and to spread ideas for
possible solutions. For this reason, FOMI welcomes researchers and
practitioners that embrace this perspective without restrictions on
the domain they deal with: business, medicine, engineering, finance,
law, biology, geography, electronics, etc.    (010)

- ontology integration and alignment    (014)

*ontology and knowledge management:*
- ontology and ontological methodologies in knowledge management;
- adaptation of ontologies for companies and organizations;

Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two member of the
Program Committee and selected on the basis of technical quality,
relevance of the described experiences, and clarity of the
presentation. In particular, we insist that papers should (1) be
written for a wide audience and (2) focus on the problematic,
successful, etc. ontological aspects. Following the previous FOMI
editions, we are considering publishing the proceedings of the
workshop in the FAIA series (IOS Press) or as a special issue of
"Applied Ontology".    (019)

* Length approximately 10 to 12 pages
Format and other information are available through the conference website.    (020)

* Deadlines:    (021)

- Paper Submission: March 5, 2011
- Acceptance Notification: April 9, 2011
