                                             The AAAI-05 Workshop on
              Contexts and Ontologies: Theory, Practice and Applications (C&O-2005)
                                               http://www.c-and-o.net/

 
            July 9-10, 2005, AAAI Workshop Program, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------
OBJECTIVES
The goal of the workshop is to bring together people from the context and ontology communities and 
to discuss the approaches they use for information integration. Therefore, the workshop will push the 
cross-fertilization and exchange of ideas (e.g., which of the methods from the ontology community 
can be successfully adopted in the context community, and vice versa), and, hence, make their 
meeting mutually beneficial.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------
TOPICS of interest include, but are not limited to:
Foundations: 
    Coordination of multiple contexts and ontologies; 
    Meaning negotiation of multiple contexts and ontologies; 
    Languages for combination of multiple contexts and ontologies; 
    Logics for combination of multiple contexts and ontologies. 
Theory & Practice: 
    Techniques and tools for matching (aligning) contexts and ontologies;
    Techniques and tools for merging contexts and ontologies;
    Techniques and tools for transforming contexts and ontologies;
    Techniques and tools for translating contexts and ontologies; 
    Techniques and tools for reconciling contexts and ontologies; 
    Techniques for query answering based on multiple contexts and ontologies;
    Benchmarking of tools for integration of contexts and ontologies;
    Comparisons of techniques and tools for matching, merging, transforming, translating, and 
    reconciling contexts and ontologies;
    Scalability of techniques for integration of contexts and ontologies;
    Comparison of uses of contexts and ontologies.
Applications:
    Semantic Web;
    DB model management;
    E-commerce;
    Telecommunications, multimedia, content indexing; 
    Knowledge management solutions for large organizations; 
    Pervasive computing systems.

INVITED TALKS
1. Fausto Giunchiglia (http://www.dit.unitn.it/~fausto), University of Trento, Italy 
    Title of the talk: "Contexts meet Ontologies: Past, Present and Future"
 
2. Christopher Welty (http://www.research.ibm.com/people/w/welty/), IBM Research, USA 
    Title of the talk: "Ontologies meet Contexts: Past, Present and Future"
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------
FORMAT, ATTENDANCE AND SUBMISSIONS
The schedule assumes a one day workshop. The workshop will consist of the following components: 
keynote presentations, technical presentations, posters/demos, and general discussion.
 
The audience is assumed to consist of both academia and industry. Thus, the workshop can improve 
academic awareness of industrial needs, and therefore direct research towards those needs. 
Simultaneously, the workshop will serve to inform industry representatives about existing research 
efforts that may meet their business needs.
 
Attendance is limited to active participants only. Contributions to the workshop can be made in terms 
of technical papers or statements of interest. Technical papers should be not longer than 8 pages using 
the AAAI-05 style (http://www.aaai.org/Workshops/workshops.html). Statements of interest should 
not exceed 2 pages using the AAAI-05 style. All contributions should be prepared in PDF format and 
should be sent by email to Pavel Shvaiko:
 
pavel at dit.unitn.it
 
Contributions will be refereed by the Program Committee. 
Accepted papers and statements of interest will be published as AAAI Technical report series.
Also we will publish the extended versions of the best technical papers of the workshop in the
Journal on Data Semantics (http://lbdwww.epfl.ch/e/Springer/).
