7th Workshop on Formal Ontologies meet Industry (FOMI 2015) 

5. August 2015, Freie Universitaet Berlin, Berlin, Germany


co-located with RuleML 2015 

FOMI is an international forum where academic researchers and industrial
practitioners meet to analyse and discuss application issues related to
methods, theories, tools and applications based on formal ontologies. Today
there is wide agreement that knowledge modelling and the semantic dimension
of information plays an increasingly central role in the networked economy:
semantic-based applications aim to provide a framework for information and
knowledge sharing, reliable information exchange, meaning negotiation and
coordination between distinct organizations or among members of the same
organization. Often, theoretical ideas seem very promising but their actual
implementation brings up unexpected problems and issues. The FOMI 2015
Workshop aims to discuss problems, solutions, perspectives and research
directions for both researchers and practitioners. We welcome papers or
project descriptions that are aimed at applying formal ontologies in
industry. In particular:

- theoretical studies on formal ontologies committed to provide sound bases
for industrial applications and to allow formal representation of corporate
- business experiences on case studies that single out concrete problems and
possible solutions; the experience analysis should provide useful insights
on social or strategic aspects that might be relevant in the creation and
deployment of formal ontologies as well as useful criteria or methods to
evaluate ontologies and their effectiveness in applications.

Conference Topics

The following is not an exhaustive list.

Problems in ontology application:

- practical issues in using ontologies in the enterprise -real cases of
successful/unsuccessful use of ontology in business
- from legacy systems to the new ontology-driven systems
- ontology evaluation
- ontology for learning organizations
- ontology for business processes and practices
- enterprise modeling and business models
- ontology for service science and service values 

Ontology and knowledge management:

- ontology and ontological methodologies in knowledge management
- adaptation of ontologies for companies and organizations
- ontology interoperability
- ontology development and change within organizations
- ontology effectiveness and evaluation
- ontology-driven representation of products, services, functionalities,
design, processes
- ontologies for the know-how
