                   The 3nd Workshop on
                  Regulatory Ontologies

  WWW: www.starlab.vub.ac.be/staff/mustafa/WORM_2005.htm
 Part of the International Federated Conferences (OTM '05)
      **Proceedings published by Springer LNCS **
          4 Nov 2005, Larnaca, Cyprus

In many application areas (such as e-commerce, e-government, content
standardization, legal information systems etc.), the modeling of
regulatory and legal knowledge is critical. Modeling and deploying
regulatory knowledge has some specifics that differentiate it out from
other kinds of knowledge modeling: reasoning methods and application
scenarios, the legal weight (/order) of regulations, parsing legal
texts require special semantic patterns, the sensitivity in
cross-border regulations, etc. This workshop aims at bringing together
academics, researchers, professionals and industrial practitioners to
discuss issues involved in modeling regulatory ontologies.

Regulatory ontologies typically involve the description of rules and
regulations within the social world. In particular, we seek original
contributions on (but not limited to) the following issues of

- Engineering of regulatory ontologies: conceptual analysis,
representation, modularization and layering, reusability, evolution
and dynamics, etc.

- Multilingual and terminological aspects of regulatory ontologies

- Models of legal reasoning (from ontological viewpoint): regulatory
compliance, case-based reasoning, reasoning with uncertainty, etc.

- Sensitivity on and harmonization of regulations

- Regulatory metadata and content standardization
(e.g. legal-XML/LeXML, ADR/ODR-XML,...)

- Regulatory ontologies of: property rights, persons and
organizations, legal procedures, contracts, legal causality, etc.

- Task models for socially regulated activities

- Experiences with projects and applications involving regulatory
ontologies in legal knowledge based systems, legal information
retrieval, e-governments, e-commerce

- Automated extraction of Information from regulatory documents
