We invite you to submit papers to

      2^nd Workshop on Building and Applying Ontologies for the Semantic Web

a part of the the *13^th Portuguese Conference on Artificial 
Intelligence *(EPIA 2007) http://epia2007.appia.pt/

The deadline for submission is,* now*, *15 . July . 2007*.

This workshop addresses the problems of building and applying ontologies 
in the Semantic Web and other areas listed below, as well as the 
theoretical and practical challenges arising from these applications. We 
invite contributions to enhance the state-of-the-art of creating, 
managing and using ontologies.

      EPIA 2007*, 3 - 7 December 2007, Guimarães, Portugal*

The purpose of this conference is to promote the research in Artificial 
Intelligence (AI) and scientific exchange among AI researchers, 
practitioners, scientists and engineers in related disciplines.
As in the previous editions, the program will be prearranged in terms of 
workshops dedicated to specific themes of AI,  invited lectures, 
tutorials, thematic panels and exhibit sessions all selected according 
to the highest reviewing principles. The program will include a doctoral 
consortium. The conference is devoted to all areas of Artificial 
Intelligence and will cover both theoretical and foundational issues and 
applications as well.
The official language is the English.

      Paper Submission

Submissions must follow the guidelines specified in the conference site. 
Authors must remove their names from the submitted papers, and should 
take reasonable care not to indirectly disclose their identity. The
