CICM 2015 - Call for Work-in-Progress Papers

                   Call for Work-in-Progress Papers

            Conference on Intelligent Computer Mathematics
                              CICM 2015

                           13-17 July 2015
                          Washington DC, USA

Digital and  computational solutions are becoming  the prevalent means
for the generation, communication, processing, storage and curation of
mathematical  information.  Separate  communities  have  developed  to
investigate  and build  computer based  systems for  computer algebra,
automated deduction, and mathematical publishing as well as novel user
interfaces. While all of these systems excel in their own right, their
integration  can   lead  to   synergies  offering   significant  added
value.  The  Conference  on Intelligent  Computer  Mathematics  (CICM)
offers a  venue for discussing  and developing solutions to  the great
challenges posed by the integration of these diverse areas.

CICM has been held annually as a joint meeting since 2008, co-locating
related   conferences  and   workshops  to   advance  work   in  these
subjects. Previous  meetings have been  held in Birmingham  (UK 2008),
Grand Bend (Canada 2009), Paris (France 2010), Bertinoro (Italy 2011),
Bremen (Germany 2012), Bath (UK 2013), and Coimbra (Portugal 2014).

This is a (short version of  the) call for Work-in-Progress papers for
CICM 2015,  which will be held  in Washington, D.C., 13-17  July 2015.
We  solicit  for  papers  which  describe  work  in  progress,  recent
developments, and other work of interest to our communities which does
not yet have the maturity for archival proceedings.

[CFP] LD4KD2015 - ECML/PKDD workshop on Linked Data for Knowledge Discovery

** apologies for cross-posting **

================================
LD4KD2015
2nd Workshop on Linked Data for Knowledge Discovery


co-located with the European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery 2015 (ECML/PKDD 2015)
September 7th - 11th 2015, Porto, Portugal (http://www.ecmlpkdd2015.org/ )

================================

Linked Data have attracted a lot of attention in recent years, as the underlying technologies and principles provide new ways, following the Semantic Web standards, to overcome typical data management and consumption issues such as reliability, heterogeneity, provenance or completeness.
However, the way in which Linked Data can be applicable and beneficial to the Knowledge Discovery (KDD) process is still not completely understood. Many aspects of KDD could in fact benefit from Linked Data, e.g. mining Linked Data sources, using Linked Data to enrich, represent or integrate local data for data preparation, interpretation or visualisation.

The LD4KD2015 workshop encourages the participation of researchers from the Knowledge Discovery field to discuss and get informed about the use, benefits and challenges of Linked Data, while Linked Data researchers can take advantage of and adapt Knowledge Discovery methods in their domain.

*SCOPE*

We welcome high quality position papers, research papers and demos in which 
(1) Linked Data are used as support of Knowledge Discovery processes to extract useful knowledge, or 
(2) Knowledge Discovery techniques are adapted to work and possibly extend Linked Data.

Topics of either theoretical and applied interest include, but are not limited to:

- Linked Data for data pre-processing: cleaning, sorting, filtering or enrichment
- Linked Data applied to Machine Learning
- Linked Data for pattern extraction and behaviour detection
- Linked Data for pattern interpretation, visualization or optimisation
- Reasoning with patterns and Linked Data
- Reasoning on and extracting knowledge from Linked Data
- Linked Data mining
- Links prediction or links discovery using KDD
- Graph mining in Linked Data
- Interacting with Linked Data for Knowledge Discovery

*IMPORTANT DATES*

Paper submission deadline: Monday, June 22, 2015
Paper acceptance notification: Monday, July 13, 2015
Camera-ready deadline: Monday July 27, 2015
Workshop day: Friday September 11, 2015

*SUBMISSIONS*

Articles should be written following the Springer LNCS template (see authors instructions at
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0) and can be up to 10 pages in lenght for research papers or 5 pages for demos and position papers and demos, including figures and references.

Announcement

In today's information-centric world, effective access to and use of knowledge is a key enabler for progress. Driven by the demands for intelligent applications and the explosion of information on the Web, the study of Knowledge Capture is crucially important. Knowledge Capture is the extraction of useful knowledge from diverse sources: unstructured information sources, semi-structured and structured data sources, knowledge graphs and directly from crowds and individuals, either through observation or implicit or explicit elicitation.

The wealth of information available from such a variety of sources calls for new methods of Knowledge Capture that draw both from traditional knowledge acquisition techniques and from more data-driven techniques such as large-scale data mining, statistical analysis and data analytics.

Researchers and practitioners who work in the area of Knowledge Capture traditionally participate in several distinct communities, including Knowledge Engineering, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Human-Computer Interaction, Artificial Inteligence and the Semantic Web. K-CAP 2015 will provide a forum to bring together members of disparate research communities who are interested in all aspects of capturing knowledge from a variety of sources, as well as those interested in creating representations that can be useful for reasoning, analysis, and other forms of machine processing.



Venue

This year's K-CAP conference will be held at the Dolce Palisades Hotel and Conference Center, just outside New York City. The Dolce Palisades is within 30 miles of the NYC airports: John F. Kennedy (JFK), LaGuardia (LGA), Newark (EWR) and Westchester (HPN). The venue is minutes by car to the Metro North train with service to Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan.

K-CAP 2015 is also conveniently close in time and space to this year's International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2015) at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Although the two conferences are not quite "co-located", those at K-CAP 2015 can easily attend the last K-CAP plenary session, have their free K-CAP lunch and make it to Bethlehem to check in prior to the first day of ISWC activities.

[CfP] 4th OWL Reasoner Evaluation (ORE) Workshop (with DL 2015) - Final Call

[Apologies for cross-posting]

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                          CALL FOR PAPERS, SYSTEMS & ONTOLOGIES
                     4th OWL Reasoner Evaluation Workshop (ORE 2015)
           Collocated with the 28th International Workshop on Description Logics
                 June 6, 2015 - Athens, Greece
                 https://www.w3.org/community/owled/ore-2015-workshop/
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



OBJECTIVES
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The goal of this workshop is to bring together both the DEVELOPERS and END-USERS of reasoners for (subsets of) OWL 2, including systems focusing on both intensional (ontology) and extensional (data) query answering. The workshop will give developers a perfect opportunity to promote their systems.


CALL FOR PAPERS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

We invite submission of papers describing:

    * The architecture, implementation, and expected performance of the reasoner.

    * Reasoner implementation details, usage reports, implementation "tips and tricks".

    * Challenging ontologies and/or benchmark proposals for OWL reasoners.

Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS guidelines (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) and should not be longer than 6 pages (excluding references).

Submissions must be in PDF through the EasyChair conference system: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ore2015

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the program committee. Selected papers will be presented during the workshop and published as a volume of CEUR workshop proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org/).



CALL FOR SYSTEMS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

We invite reasoner developers to submit their systems for participation in the 2015 OWL reasoner competition. The preliminary outline for the competition is as follows:

    * The test sets will include OWL ontologies from all OWL 2 profiles and of varying sizes, from a large corpus of ontologies (including ontologies from the NCBO BioPortal, a web crawl, and user-submitted ontologies).
    * The tested tasks will include consistency checking, classification, and realisation.
    * Developers will have to submit an executable wrapper script that triggers the reasoning system, and the system itself to the competition organizers, who will then carry out the benchmarks.

Framework: https://github.com/andreas-steigmiller/ore-2014-competition-framework/
Dataset: http://zenodo.org/record/10791
Instructions: https://bitbucket.org/andreas-steigmiller/ore-2014-testing-framework

Information about last year’s competition can be found on the ORE 2014 website: http://www.easychair.org/smart-program/VSL2014/ORE-competition.html

In addition to the system submissions, reasoner developers are invited to submit a short paper describing their system. See the above instructions for paper submissions.

Please, submit your system to ore2015 [at] easychair [dot] org by May 1, 2015.


CALL FOR ONTOLOGIES
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

We invite ontology developers to submit ontologies which they believe pose a challenge performance-wise for current OWL reasoners to handle. These ontologies will be included in our ontology corpus, and additionally will have a separate analysis in the competition proceedings.

In addition to the ontology submissions, ontology developers are invited to submit a short paper describing their ontology. See the above instructions for paper submissions.

Please, submit your ontology to ore2015 [at] easychair [dot] org by May 1, 2015.


IMPORTANT DATES
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

    * Paper submission deadline: April 10, 2015
    * Notification of acceptance: May 1, 2015
    * System/ontology submission (for competition): May 1, 2015
    * Workshop:  June 6, 2015

The calls for “Industry & Use Case Presentations” and “Posters and 
Demos” at SEMANTiCS 2015 can be found here:http://www.semantics.cc/

The annual SEMANTiCS conference is the meeting place for professionals 
who make semantic computing work, who understand its benefits and 
encounter its limitations. Every year, SEMANTiCS attracts information 
managers, IT-architects, software engineers and researchers from 
organisations ranging from NPOs, through public administrations to the 
largest companies in the world. Attendees learn from industry experts 
and top researchers about emerging trends and topics in the fields of 
semantic software, enterprise data, linked data & open data strategies, 
methodologies in knowledge modelling and text & data analytics. The 
SEMANTiCS community is highly diverse; attendees have responsibilities 
in interlinking areas like knowledge management, technical 
documentation, e-commerce, big data analytics, enterprise search, 
document management, business intelligence and enterprise vocabulary 
management.
The success of last year’s conference in Leipzig with more than 230 
attendees from 22 countries proves that SEMANTiCS 2015 will continue a 
long tradition of bringing together colleagues from around the world. 
There will be presentations on industry implementations, use case 
prototypes, best practices, panels, papers and posters to discuss 
semantic systems in birds-of-a-feather sessions as well as informal 
settings. SEMANTICS addresses problems common among information 
managers, software engineers, IT-architects and various specialist 
departments working to develop, implement and/or evaluate semantic 
software systems.
The SEMANTiCS program is a rich mix of technical talks, panel 
discussions of important topics and presentations by people who make 
things work - just like you. In addition, attendees can network with 
experts in a variety of fields. These relationships provide great value 
to organisations as they encounter subtle technical issues in any stage 
of implementation. The expertise gained by SEMANTiCS attendees has a 
long-term impact on their careers and organisations. These factors make 
SEMANTiCS for our community the major industry related event across Europe.

The following ‘horizontals’ (research) and ‘verticals’ (industries)

[CfP] 4th OWL Reasoner Evaluation (ORE) Workshop (with DL 2015) - 2nd call

[Apologies for cross-posting]

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                          CALL FOR PAPERS, SYSTEMS & ONTOLOGIES
                     4th OWL Reasoner Evaluation Workshop (ORE 2015)
           Collocated with the 28th International Workshop on Description Logics
                 June 6, 2015 - Athens, Greece
                 https://www.w3.org/community/owled/ore-2015-workshop/
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



OBJECTIVES
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The goal of this workshop is to bring together both the DEVELOPERS and END-USERS of reasoners for (subsets of) OWL 2, including systems focusing on both intensional (ontology) and extensional (data) query answering. The workshop will give developers a perfect opportunity to promote their systems.


CALL FOR PAPERS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

We invite submission of papers describing:

    * The architecture, implementation, and expected performance of the reasoner.

    * Reasoner implementation details, usage reports, implementation "tips and tricks".

    * Challenging ontologies and/or benchmark proposals for OWL reasoners.

Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS guidelines (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) and should not be longer than 6 pages (excluding references).

Submissions must be in PDF through the EasyChair conference system: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ore2015

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the program committee. Selected papers will be presented during the workshop and published as a volume of CEUR workshop proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org/).



CALL FOR SYSTEMS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

We invite reasoner developers to submit their systems for participation in the 2015 OWL reasoner competition. The preliminary outline for the competition is as follows:

    * The test sets will include OWL ontologies from all OWL 2 profiles and of varying sizes, from a large corpus of ontologies (including ontologies from the NCBO BioPortal, a web crawl, and user-submitted ontologies).
    * The tested tasks will include consistency checking, classification, entailment checking, and query answering.
    * Developers will send a JAR file of their systems to the competition organizers who will then carry out the benchmarks.

More details will be published soon. Information about last year's competition can be found on the ORE 2014 website: http://www.easychair.org/smart-program/VSL2014/ORE-competition.html

In addition to the system submissions, reasoner developers are invited to submit a short paper describing their system. See the above instructions for paper submissions.

Please, submit your system to ore2015 [at] easychair [dot] org by May 1, 2015.


CALL FOR ONTOLOGIES
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

We invite ontology developers to submit ontologies which they believe pose a challenge performance-wise for current OWL reasoners to handle. These ontologies will be included in our ontology corpus, and additionally will have a separate analysis in the competition proceedings.

In addition to the ontology submissions, ontology developers are invited to submit a short paper describing their ontology. See the above instructions for paper submissions.

Please, submit your ontology to ore2015 [at] easychair [dot] org by May 1, 2015.


IMPORTANT DATES
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

    * Paper submission deadline: April 10, 2015
    * Notification of acceptance: May 1, 2015
    * System/ontology submission (for competition): May 1, 2015
    * Workshop:  June 6, 2015
    * Competition: June 7-10, 2015 (TBC)

Re: Integrity constraints for OWL 2 / OWL 2 DL

Hi,
thx for you answer. I think that the author of the cited paper means simply syntacticatical rules. Doesn't he? In fact, he calls them " validity rules" in his another  paper. Here are:
 Is my thought correct? If I am correct, I want to know the corresponding ones in OWL 2 (ARE THEY THE SUBJECT OF THE STRUCTURAL SPECIFICATION) or are there other ones?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi Leila, 

there have been various extensions of owl with integrity constraints, but owl itself doesn't have a mechanism for integrity constraints. what do you want them for? Also, there are certain syntax restrictions for owl 2 direct semantics - don't confuse these with integrity constraints! 

Cheers, Uli

Hi, 
Please I want to check whether are there corresponding integrity constraints for OWL 2/ OWL 2DL as those those defined in table 4 p 19 in [1] (which define them for RDF/S ? Are they the ones defined in [2]  for OWL 2? Are THEY the ones defined in [3] for OWL 2 DL?
What I look for is to some integrity constraints for OWL 2 and/or OWL 2DL such the ones defined in the cited paper?
Thanks for your help.
