Dear WOP PC members,
in order to really point at the focus of the workshop, namely the
pattern writing sessions, we are also distributing a separate call for
patterns. This may be interesting not only for academics, but also
practitioners in industry for example. Please distribute as you see
Best regards,

Call for Patterns - Workshop on Ontology Patterns - WOP2009

As interest in the Semantic Web increases and technologies for realizing
the semantic web become more mature, the need for high-quality and
reusable semantic web ontologies increases. To address the quality and
re-usability issues, different types of Ontology Design Patterns (ODPs)
have emerged. Parallel to these efforts it is equally important to
collect best practices on all levels of ontology engineering and
semantic web application development. Patterns and collections of best
practices can supply ontology designers with several kinds of benefits,
including a direct links to requirements, reuse, guidance, and better

This workshop provides an arena for proposing and discussing good
practices, patterns, pattern-based ontologies, systems etc. To put
specific focus on the opportunity to submit and discuss actual patterns
we distribute this 1st call for patterns. The aim is to broaden the
pattern community that will develop its own “language” for discussing
and describing relevant problems and their solutions. The workshop will
be held in conjunction with ISWC2009 on October 25th. It will be a
full-day workshop consisting of three parts; papers, posters, and
“pattern writing” sessions. The focus is on the interactive pattern
writing sessions, where patterns are discussed with specific focus on
significance, re-usability, and possible improvements of the patterns.


Patterns are submitted through the ontologydesignpatterns.org portal
[1], and reviewed by at least two members of the PC. Each accepted
pattern will receive an advisor that acts as a discussion partner
throughout the complete process. Accepted patterns are described in an
extended abstract, included in the CEUR workshop proceedings. Accepted
patterns are to be improved based on the review comments, and additional
improvements will be discussed during the workshop session. After the
workshop, the patterns are considered for certification by


For WOP2009 we invite patterns of the following types: Content ODPs,
Structural ODPs, and Correspondence ODPs (see [2] for more information
on pattern types). All domains are welcome.
