> DEFINITION AND SCOPE
> --------------------
>
> Ontology is a cross-disciplinary field concerned with the study of
> concepts and theories that support the building of shared
> conceptualizations of specific domains. In recent years, there has been a
> growing interest in the application of ontologies to solve modeling and
> classification problems in diverse areas such as Computer Science,
> Information Science, Philosophy, Artificial Intelligence, Linguistics,
> Knowledge Management and many others.
>
> The Brazilian Conference on Ontologies (Ontobras) foresees an opportunity
and
> scientific environment in which researchers and practitioners from
> Information Sciences and Computer Science can exchange the theories,
> methodologies, languages, tools and experience related to the ontology
> development and application. In particular, the community has put forward
> efforts in integrating previous events on Ontologies that happened
> in Brazil in recent years, in order to create a unique highly
scientifically
> qualified international forum for presenting and discussing the subject
in
> Brazil.
>
> Therefore, we provide a non-comprehensive list of areas and researchers’
> communities from which we expect to receive submissions:
>
> - Information Science, for instance working with ontologies, thesauri,
> knowledge management among other applications,
>
> - Databases, for instance working with semantic data integration, linked
> open data, among other applications,
>
> - Artificial Intelligence, for instance working with knowledge based
> systems, agents, ontology reasoning, among other applications
>
> - Software Engineering, for instance working with conceptual modeling,
> Business Process Models, among other applications,
>
> - Informatics in Education, for instance working with  Educational
> Ontologies , Semantic Web-based Educational Standards, among other
> applications,
>
> - Linguistics and philosophy, working with natural language processing
> using ontologies, theories of representation, among other applications.
>
> Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit theoretical, technical
> and practical research contributions that directly or indirectly address
> the issues above. Particularly welcome are e-science, life-sciences,
> e-business and cultural applications.

> FORMAT FOR SUBMISSIONS AND PUBLICATION
> --------------------------------------
> We are interested in the various aspects of the field, from its
> philosophical and theoretical foundations to the new technologies and
> innovative applications.
>
> In this edition, Ontobras is opened to submissions in two categories:
>
> - Full papers (maximum 12 pages) written in English and describing work
> with clear demonstrated results. Accepted full papers will be invited for
> oral presentation. The best full papers will be invited to be extended for
> publication in an influential international journal (still in
negotiation).
>
> - Short papers (maximum 6 pages) written in Portuguese, English, or
Spanish
> and describing ongoing work. Accepted short papers will be invited for
> poster presentations.
>
> All submissions must be in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and must
> follow the article formatting rules provided by the Brazilian Computing
> Society (SBC). The models for Microsoft Office Word, OpenOffice and Latex
>  can be downloaded at <
