Applied Ontology Special Issue on the Role of Ontologies in Linked Data, 
Big Data and Semantic Web Applications.

The IAOA Semantic Web Applied Ontology (SWAO) Special Interest Group [ 
http://www.iaoa.org/sig/swao/ ] welcomes the submission of papers 
focusing on the role of ontologies in the areas of Linked Data and the 
Semantic Web, and their possible applications in Big Data. Our goal is 
to collect a diverse set of papers concerned with the use of ontologies 
in support of these areas.

Types of submissions sought include:

·Position papers

·Practical examples

·Methodological treatments

·Research-oriented papers

We are looking for papers that address the challenge problems set out in 
the 2014 Ontology Summit [ 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2014 ]. We 
especially welcome papers that show how more rigorous and principled 
ontologies based on ontological analysis may be of help for the Semantic 
Web, the Linked Data, and the Big Data communities.

Expanding on the topics highlighted in the Ontology Summit 2014 
Communique [ 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologySummit2014_Communique ], 
submissions should be concerned with:

·The role that ontologies play (or can play) in Linked Data, Big Data 
and Semantic Web Applications

·Engineering of ontologies to address integration and domain-specific 
modeling concerns

·Sharing and reuse of ontologies within and across application or domain 

·Tooling and techniques in support of ontology development for Linked 
Data, Big Data and Semantic Web Applications (provided that a 
contribution to the practice of ontological analysis and conceptual 
modeling is clearly established)

Note that papers only focusing on language or algorithmic issues would 
be considered as out of scope. Authors are encouraged to use language 
that will be intelligible also to those outside their specific sector of 

Papers should be formatted and submitted according to the guidelines of 
the IOS Press publication “Applied Ontology” [ 
http://www.iossubmissions.com/applied-ontology/ ], using the link 
“Submit Manuscript” on that page under Author Actions. The guidelines 
are found under the tab, "Submission of Manuscripts". When submitting 
your paper as described on that page, please also include a covering
