Call For Papers


Ontology is a cross-disciplinary field concerned with the study of concepts and theories that can be used for representing shared conceptualizations of specific domains. Ontological Engineering is a discipline in computer and information science concerned with the development of techniques, methods, languages and tools for the systematic construction of concrete artifacts capturing these representations, i.e., models (e.g., domain ontologies) and metamodels (e.g., upper-level ontologies). In recent years, there has been a growing interest in diverse areas in computer science such as software and data engineering, knowledge representation, natural language processing, information science, among many others.

The objective of VORTE-MOST 2010 is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the relation between ontology and information models, and theoretical topics such as formal ontology, formal logics, conceptual modelling, enterprise computing, computational linguistics, cognitive science, knowledge representation, the Semantic Web, and MDE (Model-Driven Engineering), as well as more practical topics as a result of applications of ontologies in diverse fields, such as knowledge management, informatics for education, ontology-based information and database integration, information processing (retrieval, classification and extraction), to mention just a few.

Derived from VORTE’s tradition, the joint workshop has a specific interest in the application of Ontologies, Vocabularies and Rules in the context of enterprise systems. Furthermore, in this year’s joint edition of the workshops we are giving a special attention to ontological aspects related to notion of services. This includes ontological analyses of the domain of services as well as of service reference models 
and modeling languages. But also, from a complimentary perspective, this scope includes engineering aspects of Ontology-Based Service-Oriented Modeling and Computing.

VORTE 2010 is the 5th workshop associated with the EDOC conference series that intends to bring together researchers and practitioners in  areas such as philosophical ontology, enterprise modelling, information systems, semantic web, model-driven engineering, business rules, and  business process management. The goal of the workshop is to discuss the role that (foundational and domain) ontologies/vocabularies and business rules play in the conceptual design and implementation of next generation enterprise solutions.

MOST was held for the first time during the 28th International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER’2009) and it was created as the unification of two existing workshops: (i) Workshop on Ontologies and Metamodels in Software and Data Engineering (WOMSDE) – organized since 2006 for three consecutive editions; (ii) Workshop on Ontologies and Applications (WONTO) – organized since 2005 also in three editions. MOST 2010 can also be seen as a 5th edition of these joint scientific fora.
