*** Topics: Ontology Content, Evaluation, standardization,  eHealth  
*** Enterprise, Human Resources                                          
 In conjunction of the International Federated Conferences (OTM '07)
                Oct 28 - Nov 2 2007, Algarve, Portugal

This workshop is organized by the Ontology Outreach Advisory
 (OOA). The OOA is an international not-for-profit association that
 consists of industry, government, and research leaders and innovators
 with respect to ontology development, use, or education. The general
 mission of the OOA is to develop strategies for ontology
 recommendation and standardization, and promote the ontology
 technology to industry.

Current trends within the Semantic Web research are mainly concerned
with technological issues, such as language capabilities, inference
services, etc. Yet less attention has been given to ontology content
and its quality. This workshop aims to focus on content issues, such
as methodologies and tools concerned with modeling good ontologies,
approaches to ontology content evaluation, quality measures, ontology
content management (e.g. metadata, libraries, and registration),
ontology documentation, etc. The workshop also aims to give a special
attention to ontology content issues in two industrial sectors: human
resources and employment, and healthcare and life sciences. We
welcome papers and (past/planned) project descriptions that discuss
ontology modeling and evaluation aspects, particularly:

* Research papers presenting theoretical solutions, but with a clear
  illustration on how these solutions can be applied in industry.

* Position papers presenting opinions on some aspect of ontology
  practice, or describing work that is still in progress, but
  sufficiently mature to warrant attention.

* Business experience and case studies specifying requirements,
  challenges, or opportunities of modeling and applying ontologies in

Workshop Structure
The workshop consists of three tracks: Ontology Evaluation, Ontologies
in Human Resources and Employment, and ontologies in Healthcare and
life sciences:

Methods and tools for ontology evaluation:
    * Ontological evaluation.
    * Logical evaluation.
    * Usability/usefulness evaluation.
    * Ontology compliance to standards.
    * Ontology standardization and recommendation scenarios.
    * Ontology metadata, and libraries.
    * Ontology documentation.
    * Ontology registration and certification.
    * Ontology interoperability.
    * Consensus reaching.
    * Business cases studies.

Ontologies in Human Resources
    * Modeling and representation of: Jobs, CVs, Competencies, Skills, 
        Employees, People, Organizations, Social Events, etc.
    * HR upper level concepts.
    * Semantics of HR-XML.
    * Semantic metadata for HR applications.
    * Semantics in job matching.
    * Semantics is learning technologies.
    * Multilinguality in human resources ontologies.
    * Best practice and semantic patterns in ontology modeling and 

Ontologies for Healthcare and Life sciences
    * Ontologies in Biomedicine and bioinformatics.
    * Ontologies of diseases, nursing, therapeutics, drug, etc.
    * Upper level concepts of healthcare and life sciences ontologies.
    * Semantic metadata for Clinical Data Interchange.
    * Semantics of medical XML standards and vocabularies.
    * Multilinguality in Biomedicine and bioinformatics ontologies.
    * Best practice and semantic patterns in ontology modeling and 

Submissions We invite (A) research papers describing original studies
of no more than 12 pages; (B)Position papers presenting opinions or
work in progress of no more than 6 pages; and (C) Business experience
and case studies of no more than 8 pages. Submitted papers will be
fully refereed based on the originality and significance of the ideas
presented as well as on technical aspects. Each paper will be reviewed
by at least one expert from academia, and at least one expert from
industry. The final proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag
as LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science). Author instructions can
