               The Second International Workshop on
 Contexts and Ontologies: Theory, Practice and Applications 
                                  (C&O-2006)
                        http://www.c-and-o.net/

 August 28, 2006, ECAI Workshop Program, Riva del Grada, Italy.

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: 
    Information interoperability and reuse via multiple contexts and ontologies;
    Coordination 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 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;
    Evaluation of tools for combination of contexts and ontologies;
    Scalability of techniques for combination of contexts and ontologies;
    Comparison of uses of contexts and ontologies.
Applications:
    Semantic Web;
    Information Retrieval;
    E-commerce;
    Telecommunications, multimedia, content indexing; 
    Knowledge management solutions for large organizations; 
    Grid and P2P;
    Pervasive computing and ambient intelligence.

FORMAT, ATTENDANCE AND SUBMISSIONS
The schedule assumes a one day workshop. The workshop will consist of the
following components: keynote presentations, technical presentations,
posters, 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.

Contributions to the workshop can be made in terms of technical papers or 
statements of interest. Formatting and submission instructions will be 
published shortly on the workshop web-site, http://www.c-and-o.net/.

Contributions will be refereed by the Program Committee.
Accepted papers and statements of interest will be published in the 
workshop proceedings. Also authors of the best technical papers will 
be invited to submit an extended versions of their papers for possible 
publication in a special issue on 
"Contexts and Ontologies: Theory, Practice and Applications" 
in the Knowledge Engineering Review Journal",
http://www.cambridge.org/uk/journals/journal_catalogue.asp?historylinks=ALPHA&mnemonic=KER

IMPORTANT DATES
April 15, 2006: Deadline for the submissions. 
May 10, 2006: Notification of acceptance/rejection. 
May 24, 2006: Deadline for the receipt of camera-ready papers.
