Third International Workshop on Definitions in Ontologies (IWOOD 2015)    (02)

DEADLINE EXTENSION: May 3, 2015    (03)

Held in conjunction with the 6th International Conference on Biomedical 
Ontologies (ICBO 2015)
Lisbon, Portugal, July 27-30, 2015    (04)

Website: https://sites.google.com/site/defsinontos2015/home    (05)

Definitions of terms in ontologies serve a number of purposes. Logical 
definitions allow reasoners to assist in the process of classification 
and to verify the results, thereby lessening the development burden. 
Natural language definitions help ameliorate low inter-annotator 
agreement. Good definitions make it possible for non-experts and experts 
in adjacent disciplines to understand unfamiliar terms, thereby making 
it possible for them to reuse terms in external ontologies. In this way 
definitions can help to facilitate integration of data.    (06)

Paper topics include but are not limited to:
-Experiences in formulating definitions;
-Tools that assist in definition editing or creation, including 
collaborative systems;
-Coordination of logical and textual definitions;
-Validation and quality control of definitions;
-Methods for constructing definitions from multiple sources;
-Use of controlled languages such as Rabbit or ACE for more 
user-friendly logical definition creation;
-Use of templates to systematize definition creation;
-Technical issues encountered in definition creation, checking, or 
-Techniques or studies evaluating definitions;
-Adaptation of definitions for different audiences.    (07)

The workshop will be built around presentations of accepted papers and 
accompanying discussions.
The workshop will document findings on the workshop's website: 
https://sites.google.com/site/defsinontos2015/home. Contributions will 
be published in the ICBO Proceedings. A selection of papers, in extended 
form, will be published in the Journal of Biomedical Semantics.    (08)

The intended audiences for this workshop are:
-Ontologists, tool developers, and domain experts whose work encounters 
issues regarding definitions;
-Tool developers building definition- or ontology-authoring tools;
-Philosophers and logicians;
-Terminologists and lexicologists working on definitions and their 
-Biomedical researchers working on definitions in nomenclatures such as 
-Computer scientists addressing these issues in languages like OWL;
-NLP researchers working on definition extraction, generation, or 
-NLP/IR researchers reusing definitions produced for ontologies.    (09)

All papers should include one or more case studies and address specific 
issues related to definitions with a link to a biomedical domain.
All papers should be between 4 and 8 pages, excluding references, 
formatted using the ICBO MS Word or LaTeX templates (found at: 
http://icbo2015.fc.ul.pt/authorins.html). All submissions should adhere 
to the prescribed two-column style and use author, year citations 
together with an alphabetically organized bibliography. The workshop 
language is English. Papers are to be submitted using EasyChair 
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwood2015).    (010)
