Welcome to the 3rd Workshop on Ontology Patterns - WOP2012

This is the third edition in a series of workshops addressing the emerging topic of ontology patterns as best practices, related to the ontologydesignpatterns.org initiative. Patterns need to be shared by a community in order to provide a common language and stimulate pattern usage and development. Hence, the aim of this workshop is twofold; both providing an arena for proposing and discussing good practices, patterns, pattern-based ontologies, systems etc., and broadening the pattern community that will develop its own “language” for discussing and describing relevant problems and their solutions. For more background on the workshop series, see the main page.

It will be a half-day workshop consisting of two parts; paper presentations and posters. The poster session will feature pattern posters, i.e. presentations of patterns submitted through ontologydesignpatterns.org.

Venue and dates

The third edition of WOP will be held in conjunction with ISWC 2012 in Boston, US (for previous editions, see the main WOP website in the menu on the left).

Call for Papers - Topics

Submission instruction for research papers (including position papers) can be found at the submission page.

The main aim of the workshop is to discuss and collect solutions to recurrent problems i.e. ontology patterns, that matter to researchers and practitioners of the Semantic Web field, and that impact on ontology design and engineering. Original research papers and poster papers are invited to consider the following (non exhaustive) list of topics:

  • Ontology Design Patterns (ODPs) and pattern-based ontology design
  • ODPs for specific knowledge domains e.g. multimedia, fishery and agriculture, user profiling, business modeling, etc.
  • Anti-patterns and their relations to ODPs
  • ODPs for interacting with data
  • ODPs for expressing relevance of data in context
  • Collaborative ontology design and collaboration patterns in ontology design and engineering
  • Correspondence patterns for ontology matching and integration
  • Lexico-syntactic patterns
  • Reasoning patterns (workflows made of reasoning steps for addressing specific goals)
  • Processes and services - process patterns
  • Re-engineering patterns for conceptual models, folksonomies, lexicons, thesauri
  • Problem solving methods and patterns

  • Ontology Design Patterns and Linked Data
  • Ontology Patterns and Microformats
  • Patterns for using different vocabularies together e.g. FOAF, SIOC, DC, etc.
  • Web semantics from a pattern perspective

  • Good practices of ontology design
  • Good practices for Linked Data and related applications
  • Good practices for hybridization of semantic web and NLP techniques
  • Good Practices and Patterns of semantic social networks, semantic wikis, semantic blogs
  • Good Practices of Semantic Web in general

  • Software patterns for Semantic Web applications
  • Interaction patterns and the Semantic Web
  • Pattern-based methodologies for Semantic Web ontologies and software engineering
  • Application Profiles
  • Domain specific applications based on patterns and success-stories
  • Pattern-based ontologies

  • Tools support for pattern-based knowledge engineering
  • Pattern-based ontology evaluation and selection
  • Automatic ontology construction (ontology learning) based on patterns
  • Contextual reasoning and patterns as context
  • Knowledge patterns and knowledge re-engineering based on patterns
  • Pattern-based information extraction

  • Quality evaluation of patterns
  • Benefits of ontology patterns and knowledge patterns

Call for Patterns

Submission instructions for patterns will be found at the submission page when deadline is approaching.

Pattern submissions for the poster session will be collected both through the ODP portal and by a submitting a description of the pattern (pattern abstract), and templates for submission of the pattern itself are provided for the following types of patterns (see general typology for explanation of the types):

  • Content patterns
  • Structural patterns: logical and architecture patterns
  • Correspondence patterns: re-engineering and alignment patterns

For other types of patterns, the author is welcome to submit only a pattern abstract. A paper submission can be accompanied by a pattern submission, however the submissions will be reviewed separately.


Accepted research papers, and pattern abstracts will be published online in the CEUR-Workshop Proceedings.

Submission and Important Dates

For details on how to submit to WOP2012 see the submission page.
