Dear all, the Ontologies Come of Age workshop proceedings have been published; they are available at:  http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-809

The maturity of ontologies as components of production software as well as the promise of the Semantic
Web were presented in 2001, “The Semantic Web: Why, What, and How” (Fensel, Hendler, Lieberman,
Wahister, 2001). However, ever since this book was published we have seen several authors addressing
the same problem, that of making the case for ontologies and the Semantic Web (SW); for instance, the
Ontology Summit had “Making the case for Ontologies” as their 2011 theme. In fairness, the Semantic
Web has been an elusive concept; although, it has promised to fundamentally change our experience of
the Web and we have all enjoyed the uprising of Linked Data, very little has changed for the end-user and
we have not yet seen new levels of understanding emerging from the web of data. In spite of
improvements in the generation, distribution, accessibility and retrieval of information, technology has not
fundamentally changed our experience of the Web; more broadly speaking, our relation with information.
