[Apologies for cross-posting]

Due to several requests we have extended the deadline to
*April 15, 2014.*


                     3rd OWL Reasoner Evaluation Workshop (ORE 2014)
                    Collocated with the Vienna Summer of Logic (VSL)
                       July 13, 2014 - Vienna, Austria

The goal of this workshop is to bring together both the DEVELOPERS and
END-USERS of reasoners for (subsets of) OWL, including systems focusing on
both intensional (ontology) and extensional (data) query answering. The
workshop will give developers a perfect opportunity to promote their


We invite submission of papers describing:

    * System descriptions describing the architecture, implementation, and
expected performance of the reasoner.

    * Reasoner implementation details, usage reports, implementation "tips
and tricks".

    * Challenging ontologies and/or benchmark proposals for OWL reasoners.

Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS guidelines (
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) and should not be longer
than 6 pages (excluding references).

Submissions must be in PDF through the EasyChair conference system:

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the program committee. Selected
papers will be presented during the workshop and published as a volume of
CEUR workshop proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org/).


In addition to the workshop we will run an OWL Reasoner Competition, which
is part of the 1st FLoC Olympic Games (http://vsl2014.at/olympics/). The
FLoC Olympic Games are intended as a new FLoC tradition and Games will
bring together a multitude of established solver competitions by different
research communities. The winners in the competition categories will be
awarded Kurt Goedel medals at the FLoC Olympic Games award ceremonies.

We invite both reasoner developers and developers of challenging ontologies
to submit their systems/ontologies for participation in the OWL reasoner
competition. The preliminary outline for the competition is as follows:

    * The test sets will include OWL ontologies from all OWL 2 profiles and
of varying sizes, from a large corpus of ontologies (including ontologies
from the NCBO BioPortal, a web crawl, and user-submitted ontologies).
    * The tested tasks will include consistency checking, classification,
and realisation.
    * Developers will have to submit an executable wrapper script that
triggers the reasoning system (see ORE 2014 Specification), and the system
itself to the competition organizers, who will then carry out the

Further instructions and a testing framework is available at:
Please note: The deadline for all system submissions is 16th May 2014.

In addition to the system submissions, both reasoner and ontology
developers are invited to submit a short paper describing their
system/ontology. See the above instructions for paper submissions.


*    * Paper submission deadline: April 15, 2014 (EXTENDED)*
    * Notification of acceptance: May 2, 2014
