DEW: The Ontology Debugging and Evaluation Workshop @ JOWO 2017
September 21-23, Bolzano, Italy

JOWO: http://www.iaoa.org/jowo/2017/

** Description and Scope **

The Ontology Debugging and Evaluation Workshop (DEW) aims to advance ontology evaluation and the detection, understanding, and correction of errors in ontologies and ontological knowledge bases.

The scope of submissions sought includes, but is not limited to, such topics as formal methods, tools, and identification of particular challenges. Papers discussing ontology quality criteria, metrics, experimental results, particular cases, and lessons learned are encouraged.

The DEW organizers encourage variety in emphasis in perspective. Submissions may emphasize more or less formal, experiential, practical, or theoretical aspects of debugging and evaluation. Similarly, papers may arise, for example, from the perspectives of ontology (re)users, ontology developers, or those responsible for the quality assurance of ontologies incorporated into larger systems.

** Relationship to JOWO **

DEW is part of JOWO 2017: The 3rd Joint Ontology Workshops. JOWO 2017 will be held September 21-23, 2017, in Bozen-Bolzano, Italy.

Registration for JOWO 2017 grants attendees access to all ten workshops, plus invited speakers, joint panels sessions, and other collegial events. JOWO registration fees range between 90€ and 190€, depending on student status, IAOA membership, and date of registration. See http://www.iaoa.org/jowo/2017/ for the details about the workshops, keynotes, social events, venue, and logistics.
