ObjectOneOf subClassOf/equivalent

Hi,
Please, can you clarify for me these points:
Can I add an axiom to an ontology subClassOf( X ObjectOneOf(x1 x2 x3) : in each real case can I apply it?
It isn't better to add equivalentClasses( X  ObjectOneOf(x1 x2 x3) ,
I remarked that each one of them close the world? Aren't they? 
Is there a case where we have to add the first axiom rather than the second?
thx

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 years 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.

Last reminder: 3rd IEEE International Workshop on Formal Methods Integration - FMi 2015


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

The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on Formal Methods Integration  FMi 2015 

In conjunction with the 16th IEEE IRI 2015 

http://www.ieee-iri.org

San Francisco, USA, August 13-15, 2015

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

 

Important dates          

Abstract Submission deadline: April 7, 2015          
Paper submission deadline: April 15, 2015              May 12, 2015   (Firm)
Paper notification: May 20, 2015                            June 15, 2015
Camera-ready paper due: May 30, 2015                  June 25, 2015

Registration due: May 30, 2015                              June 25, 2015


Scope and topics

Formal methods seek to contribute to the engineering of dependable systems by applying sound techniques based on computer science fundamentals. Complex systems often involve different formalisms to deal with the modeling of their different aspects, as each formalism is specific to only some system aspects and none is perfectly supporting all aspect constructs and their related semantics. Accordingly, different analysis techniques are required to check the different system views and verify different kinds of properties. Formalism integration is intended to support coherent specification and analysis of different aspects of a system. The FMi workshop aims at further research into hybrid approaches to formal modeling and analysis. It seeks contributions from researchers and practitioners interested in all aspects of integrating methods, either formal or semi-formal, for system development, covering all engineering development phases from user requirements through design and analysis techniques to tools. The workshop also encourages new initiatives of building bridges between informal, semi-formal, and formal notations. Authors are invited to submit both research and tool papers.

 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-          scalable formal methods,

-          component-based specification and analysis,

-          integrated software/hardware specification and analysis,

-          hybrid and embedded systems modeling and analysis,

-          object and multi-agent systems modeling and analysis,

-          requirement specification and analysis,

-          software and hardware specification, verification, and validation,

-          theorem proving and decision procedures,

-          formal aspects of software evolution and maintenance,

-          formal methods for re-engineering and reuse,

-          formal languages integration,

-          semi-formal (UML, SysML, …) and formal model integration,

-          informal and formal language integration,

-          integration of formal methods into software engineering practice,

-          integrated analysis techniques,

-          tools integration,

-          integration of formal methods in education,

-          integration of formal methods in health,

-          integration of formal methods in industry,

-          integration of formal methods in security.

 

Paper submission      

Submitted papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for publication. Submissions will undergo a rigorous review process handled by the Technical Program Committee. Papers will be selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Only electronic submissions in PDF format through the EasyChair submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fmi2015 will be considered. Papers must be in English, up to 8 pages in IEEE format, including references and appendices. The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as formatting guidelines, can be found on the paper submission instructions available at the main conference website.

 

Paper publication        

At least one of the authors must register and present the paper, if accepted. Registered papers will be published as workshop papers in the IEEE IRI conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society PressSelected papers will be invited to be extended and considered for publication in a special issue of Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing, edited by Springer (confirmed) and Information Systems Frontiers, edited by Springer (pending).

CFP: First Joint International Workshop on Semantic Sensor Networks and Terra Cognita 2015

First Joint International Workshop on Semantic Sensor Networks and Terra Cognita
In Conjunction with the 14th International Semantic Web Conference
October 11-15, 2015
Bethlehem, PA, USA

The wide availability of technologies such as GPS, map services and social
networks, has resulted in the proliferation of geospatial data on the Web.
Similarly, the amount of geospatial data extracted from the Web and published
as Linked Data is increasing. Together with large volumes of machine-generated
data from sensor networks and the emerging internet of things, these continually
growing data have given rise to a number of innovative services and applications.

This workshop aims to provide an inter-disciplinary forum to explore and promote
the technologies related to a combination of semantic web, geospatial web and
sensor networking. Specifically, to develop an understanding of the ways semantic
web technologies can contribute to the growth, integration and deployment of
geospatial applications. As a joint workshop, it will explore both foundational
technologies of the Semantic Geospatial Web and applications of semantic
technologies to large-scale sensor networks and the emerging web of things.

Submissions are invited for a broad range of topics, ranging from user-
generated geospatial content, mobile data management, and linked geospatial
data to emergent semantics and ambient intelligence in sensor systems,
integration of semantic sensor networks with the web of things, and
OGC and W3C technologies and standards.

Research papers (max. 12 pages) and demo papers (max. 5 pages) are both due by
July 6, 2015.

Submissions should be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines and be
submitted in PDF using the EasyChair system:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ssntc2015

The workshop is chaired by:
Kostis Kyzirakos, Cory Henson, Matthew Perry, Dalia Varanka, Rolf Gruetter

Amit Sheth, Manfred Hauswirth, and Kerry Taylor serve as advisors.

Funded attendance at Manchester Family History: Advanced OWL Tutorial


The School of Computer Science at The University of Manchester is 
looking for individuals to participate in a funded OWL tutorial that 
covers the more advanced language concepts for OWL. We will cover 
reasonable expenses for travel in the UK, subsistence and up to 2 nights 
of accommodation. The tutorial is gratis and will take place on Tuesday 
16th and Wednesday 17th of June at the University of Manchester.

 From those who attend the tutorial we will seek volunteers to take part 
in a study in which their interaction with Protégé will be logged. 
In doing so, we will learn how people go about authoring ontologies. 
Taking part in the study will not interfere in your learning objectives 
as no additional tasks have to be carried out and data will be collected 
silently. If you decide to participate in the study, you will be free to 
opt-out anytime without detriment to your funding and participation in 
the tutorial. We will award volunteers a £20 Amazon voucher.

This tutorial goes beyond the world-famous Manchester Pizza Tutorial, by 
exploring OWL concepts in greater depth, concentrating on properties, 
property hierarchies, property features and individuals. The topic of 
family history is used to take the tutee through various modelling 
issues and, in doing so, using many features of OWL 2 to build a Family 
History KnowledgeBase (FHKB). The exercises involving the FHKB are 
designed to maximise inference about family history through use of an 
automated reasoner on an OWL knowledge base (KB) containing many members 
of a family. The aim, therefore, is to enable people to learn advanced 
features of OWL 2 in a setting that involves both classes and 
individuals, while attempting to maximise the use of inference within 
the FHKB.

By the end of the tutorial you will be able to:
1. Know about the separation of entities into TBox and ABox;
2. Use classes and individuals in modelling;
3. Write sophisticated class expressions;
4. Assert facts about individuals;
5. Use the effects of property hierarchies, property characteristics, 
domain/range constraints to drive inference;
6. Use property characteristics and subproperty chains on inferences 
about individuals
7. Understand and manage the consequences of the open world assumption 
in the TBox and ABox;
8. Use nominals in class expressions;
9. Appreciate some of the limits of OWL 2.

Supplementary material for the tutorial can be found at: 
http://owl.cs.manchester.ac.uk/publications/talks-and-tutorials/fhkbtutorial/

Participants should at least be familiar with fundamental OWL constructs 
– those covered in the OWL Pizza Tutorial: 
http://owl.cs.manchester.ac.uk/publications/talks-and-tutorials/protg-owl-tutorial/

We are looking for a maximum of 15 individuals and we will register 
participants on a first-come, first-served basis. You will be reimbursed 
for travel within the UK (or price equivalent), subsistence and 
accommodation for up to 2 nights in compliance with the University of 
Manchester expenses policy; we will reimburse up to £500. The tutorial 
is gratis.

To register, please use Eventbrite

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/advanced-owl-tutorial-manchester-family-history-tickets-16857552393 
before June 12. For further enquiries about the tutorial and funding

Background and Motivation
----------------------------
 
Transformation of the environment in which Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) are operating today is posing the new challenges to their modeling, design, implementation and use. One of the crucial circumstances of this transformation is removal of their traditional boundaries. The challenges arising from the increased requirements for flexibility in enterprise collaboration put a lot of pressure to the research on EIS integration and interoperability; they also urge for tools and approaches for rapid and active adaption of those EISs to the changing environment . The research and development of multi-agent systems paradigm are enabling EISs with multiple identities which are now representing enterprises in the digital space. The development of the Cyber-physical networks and the Internet of Things expanded the EIS scope, by introducing sensing and location-awareness aspects. The advances in cloud-based computing clearly established the distribution of the EISs’ functional and storage capabilities as the default approach to their designs. In a recently submitted position paper, based on the above circumstances, the Technical committee for Enterprise Integration and Networking of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC TC5.3) proposed the concept of the Next Generation EIS (NG EIS), which is federated, omnipresent, model-driven, open, reconfigurable and aware. All these properties imply that the future NG EIS is inherently, natively interoperable.
 
Goals and Topics
------------------
 
One of the important effects of the foreseen properties, as EISs are becoming more complex, the gap between the problem-level software abstractions of the EIS aspects on one side and their implementations, on another, will significantly increase. This increase will put a lot of pressure on the traditional model-based system engineering (MBSE) theory and practice. In attempt to anticipate the directions for their future development, the special issue aims at addressing the implications arising from the foreseen evolution towards NG EIS. Some of the open problems are described, as it follows: 

- Runtime models. Runtime models can facilitate removing complexity from EIS architecture. Hence, in the future, EIS may in fact become core execution platforms which only interpret and execute different models. Is this vision far from reality? 
- Context models. The context models can specify the surrounding environment of one EIS, including its behavior and interfaces. They facilitate context-aware applications, capable to respond to the environment’s stimuli and then, to adapt themselves and thus diminish the environmental impact to the running system.
- Formal models. Lack of ontological commitment is one of the main obstacles for validation of the designs modeled by the today’s system modeling languages and notations. However, despite the strong foundation defined in nineties, ontology languages are not yet used as the tools for system modeling. 
- Ontology-driven systems. To which extent current Semantic Web languages are mature to facilitate ontologydriven systems? Are there reasoning performance issues, especially for formal ontologies, or other issues? Are there ontology engineering methodologies to overcome these issues? 
- Design-for-interoperability. Interoperability is often defined as “a property of a product or system, whose interfaces are completely understood, to work with other products or systems, present or future, without any restricted access or implementation”. Being the inherent property of NG EIS, the interoperability will significantly affect its design and architecture. Which are these effects? 
- Models validation. Typically, the models of EISs are extensively large and it is very difficult to query or browse them. More important, in general, there exist no tools for their analysis, e.g. in terms of consistency checking, dependability and completeness. 
- Formal models of the business logic. Formal modeling languages are successfully used to model the information artifacts of one EIS. However, there exist very few works which deal with formal modeling of business logic.
- Formal Specification Techniques (FST) (e.g. Z, B, Alloy) are used in the past to address some aspects of the above problem, but with limited integration with widely used formalisms (such as UML, SysUML) and hence, limited impact. 
- Model-to-model transformations. Despite many works in the topic, the foundation for specifying model-to-model transformations is not yet built. The model transformations are one of the main facilitators of the systems interoperability - the inherent property of the NG EIS, thus extremely important. 
Model-to-model mapping. Model-to-model mapping deals with semantics representation and knowledge engineering, with a constraint dealt by the inherently multi-disciplinary vision of the design of an information system. The models mapping are one of the important pillars of the systems interoperability. 
- CPS and IoT applications models. Cyber Physical Systems and IoT applications introduced new abstractions to EIS modeling and design. How these abstractions work with the existing system modeling and engineering tools and techniques? 
- Demonstration of MBSE approaches in specific domains.  Are there evidences of the successful domain or crossdomain applications of the MBSE approaches for information systems that exhibit some of the properties of NG EIS? 

Besides the specific topics listed above, the Special issue will also consider other papers of the high quality, with contributions that are moving forward the boundaries of knowledge of the Model-Based System Engineering area.

[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

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

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

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.
