[Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement]

2nd International EDOC Workshop on

as part of the
The 10th International IEEE Enterprise
Distributed Object Computing Conference (EDOC)
16-20 October 2006, Hong Kong

SUPPORTED BY W3C - World Wide Web Consortium - Hong Kong Office


Vocabularies, ontologies and business rules are key components of a
model-driven approach to enterprise computing in a networked economy.
VORTE 2006 is the second workshop on an EDOC conference that intends
to bring together researchers and practitioners in areas such as
philosophical ontology, enterprise modeling, information systems, =20
semantic web, MDA (Model-Driven Architecture) and business rules to
discuss the role of foundational and domain ontologies in the
conceptual development and implementation of next generation tools for
enterprise computing.

The Workshop Encourages Submissions on topics including
(but not limited to) the following:

* Business Vocabularies
* Business Rules and Constraint Modeling
* Enterprise Integration and Interoperability
* Ontological Foundations for Conceptual Modeling and Metamodeling
* Vocabularies and Foundational Ontologies for Enterprise Information
* Enterprise Modeling and Simulation
* Foundations for the Model-Driven Architecture (MDA)
* Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) approaches to Enterprise Computing
* Enterprise Computing and the Semantic Web
* Enterprise Reference Architectures
* Enterprise Domain Engineering
* Domain specific Business Information and Application Engineering
* Ontologies and organizational Semiotics
* Ontological Approaches to Content and Knowledge Management


Colin Atkinson, Chair of Software Technology at Mannheim University:

Models versus Ontologies - What's the Difference and where does it

As models and ontologies assume an increasingly central role in
enterprise systems engineering the question of how they compare and
can be used together assumes growing importance. On the one hand, the
semantic web / knowledge engineering community is increasingly
promoting ontologies as the key to better software engineering
methods, while on the other hand the software engineering community is
enthusiastically pursuing the vision of Model Driven Development as
the core solution. Superficially, however, ontologies and models are
very similar, and in fact are often visualized using the same language
(e.g. UML). So what's going on? Are models and ontologies basically
the same thing sold from two different viewpoints or is there some
fundamental difference between them beyond the idiosyncrasies of
current tools and languages? If so, what is this different and how
should one choose which technology to use for which purpose?


All submissions will be formally peer reviewed. Submissions should be
6 to 8 pages long and MUST be submitted in IEEE Computer Society
format and include the author's name, affiliation and contact
details. They should be submitted by e-mail as LaTeX or PDF files
before June 16th, 2006, to m a r c u s . s p i e s {at}
lmu°de. Authors will be notified of acceptance by July 28, 2006. At
least one author of accepted papers must participate in the Workshop.
IEEE has agreed to publish all papers accepted at the EDOC Workshops
at the IEEE Digital Library (i.e., the IEEE Xplore). The workshop
papers will be posted separately with its own ISBN.
