DEFINITION AND SCOPE


Ontology is a cross-disciplinary field concerned with the study of concepts and theories that support the building of shared conceptualizations for specific domains. The Seminar on Ontology Research in Brazil (ONTOBRAS) foresees an opportunity and provides a scientific environment in which researchers and professionals in the areas of Information Science and Computer Science can exchange knowledge about theories, methodologies, languages, tools and experiences related to theoretical basis, to the development and application of ontologies.


In addition, Masters and PhD students whose research is focused on Ontologies will have in the Workshop on Theses and Dissertations on Ontology (WTDO) a space specially designed to discuss their proposals with specialists, receive feedback on methodological issues and develop an important contact network within the community.


Considering the interdisciplinarity of the field, a non-comprehensive list of areas and research communities from which we expect to receive submissions includes: Conceptual Modeling, Information Science, Logic and Reasoning, Philosophy, Software engineering, Linguistics and Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence, Knowledge Management, Semantic Web. We welcome submissions ranging from philosophical and theoretical foundations to new technologies and innovative applications.


ONTOBRAS this year will feature the following keynote speakers:


   • Nicola Guarino (LOA, Italy)

   • Mathias Brochhausen (University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, USA)



TRACKS


The 12th edition of ONTOBRAS has two tracks:

     

   - MAIN TRACK: focused on articles with consolidated research contributions in ontologies.

   - WTDO: focused on short articles describing research proposals on ontologies, at master or doctoral level, whose theses and dissertations have not been completed on the date of the event.


Submission and presentation guidelines can be found at
