9th OWL: Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED 2012)
Heraklion, Crete, 27th-28th May, 2012

[ Home | Dates | Submissions | Venue | Registration | Program | Tutorials | Organization ]

The aim of the OWL:Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED) is to establish an international forum for the OWL community, where practitioners in industry and academia, tool developers and others interested in OWL can describe real and potential applications, share experience and discuss requirements for language extensions/modifications. The workshops aim at bringing all these groups together in order to pool their expertise, measure the state of need against the state of the art, and set an agenda for research and deployment in order to incorporate OWL-based technologies into new applications.

This year, OWLED will be co-located with ESWC 2012 in Heraklion Crete. As usual, the workshop will try to encourage participants to work together and will give space for discussions of various topics as well as having presentation of submissions.
