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. OWL has become the representational model of choice for supporting interoperability in many industries. This has been made possible thanks also to the development of numerous OWL reasoning systems that efficiently deal with both intensional (ontologies) and extensional (data) query answering. In this edition we aim to bridge the gap with the reasoner evaluation community and welcome the submission of papers describing challenging ontologies and/or tasks to be represented in OWL and processed by OWL reasoners. It also welcomes proposals for improving the OWL 2 standard.

Poster and demo descriptions: These papers should be 1-2 pages long and present late-breaking results and/or describe publishable (novel) implemented systems that are of interest to the OWLED community; and (in case of an implemented system), can be demonstrated at the workshop.

All submissions must be must be in PDF, and must adhere to the Springer LNCS style. For more details, see Springer’s Author Instructions:

Poster and demo descriptions can be submitted online using the Easychair Conference system: 

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=owled2014

Posters and demos descriptions related to any aspects of OWL and extensions, applications, theory, methods and tools, are welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

	• Application driven requirements for OWL
	• Applications of OWL, particularly
		• from industry or
		• for data integration
		• for service interoperability
		• for sophisticated/non-obvious inference
		• for knowledge discovery
	• and within specific domains such as
		• law
		• bio and biomed
		• eLearning
	• Experience of using OWL: notably, highly expressive ontologies or the OWL 2 Profiles
	• Evaluation of OWL tools e.g. reasoners
	• Benchmarks for OWL tools
	• Performance and scalability issues and improvements
	• Extensions to OWL
	• OWL and Rules
	• Implementation techniques and experience reports
	• Non-standard reasoning service (implementation and requirements for)
	• Explanation
	• Ontology comprehension and verbalisation
	• Multilingual OWL
	• Modelling issues
	• Tools, including editors, visualisation, parsers and syntax checkers
	• Collaborative editing of ontologies
	• Versioning of OWL ontologies
	• Alignment of OWL ontologies
	• Modularity
	• Query answering with OWL
	• SPARQL and OWL
	• Linked Data and OWL
