10th Workshop on Ontology Design and Patterns - WOP2019

This is the tenth edition in a series of workshops addressing the topic of ontology and semantic web patterns as best practices, related to the ontologydesignpatterns.org initiative.

The workshop series covers issues related to quality in ontology design and ontology design patterns (ODPs) for data and knowledge engineering in Semantic Web. The increased attention to ODPs in recent years through their interaction with emerging trends of Semantic Web such as knowledge graphs can be attributed to their benefit for knowledge engineers and Semantic Web developers. Such benefits come in the form of direct link to requirements, reuse, guidance, and better communication. The workshop’s aim is thus not just: 1) providing an arena for discussing patterns, pattern-based ontologies, systems, datasets, but also 2) broadening the pattern community by developing its own "discourse" for discussing and describing relevant problems and their solutions.

For more background on the workshop series, see the main page.

WOP2019 is a full-day workshop consisting of three parts: paper presentations, a poster session, and an interactive breakout discussion session.


Venue and dates

The tenth edition of WOP will be held in conjunction with ISWC 2019 in Auckland, New Zealand, on October 26th or 27th, 2019.

Call for Papers and Patterns

We invite the submission of original research results related to the focus areas of the workshop, in one of three categories:

1. Research papers (maximum 15 pages LNCS style) presenting mature work and established results. 2. Short papers (maximum 5 pages LNCS style) presenting proposed research directions, novel ideas, or more general positions or discussions. 3. Ontology Design Patterns (described in paper format, 5-12 pages LNCS style) should solve a particular modelling problem, of relevance either to the broader ontology engineering community, or to some specific knowledge domain, in a novel and reusable manner. Note that accepted pattern submissions are presented through a poster session (see below).

Topics of interest

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Methods and tools for developing high-quality ontologies or other knowledge graph schemas, including ontology engineering by domain experts
  • Analyses of quality attributes in ontologies and ontology engineering, and quality assurance approaches for ontology engineering
  • New ontology design patterns (content patterns, structural patterns, architecture patterns, correspondence patterns, etc.)
  • Pattern-based methods and methodologies for development of semantic applications
  • Analyses of ODP use, and analyses of pattern-based ontologies
  • Antipatterns and their relations to ODPs
  • Pattern-based ontology design and knowledge engineering
  • Pattern-based ontology evaluation and selection
  • Pattern-based information extraction, ontology learning, and relation to NLP
  • Correspondence patterns for ontology matching and integration
  • Patterns and Linked data (usage, emerging patterns, pattern-driven data publishing, etc.)
  • ODP development and use in specific domains including geosciences, life sciences, digital humanities, cultural heritage, e-history, IoT, smart homes & cities, smart agriculture etc.


Submissions should be made via the WOP 2019 EasyChair page. Detailed instructions can be found at the submission page. Note that design pattern submissions also need to be submitted to the ontologydesignpatterns.org community portal, as described on that page.


Accepted pattern submissions will be expected to present a poster describing the pattern at the workshop poster session.

Accepted research or short papers may also be presented in this manner if the authors would like to, but posters are not mandatory for such submissions.

  • Submission date (strict, no extensions allowed): June 28th, 2019
  • Author notifications: July 24th, 2019
  • Camera-ready submissions: August 7th, 2019
  • Workshops will be held on: 26th or 27th of October, 2019


WOP 2019 proceedings will be published via CEUR Workshop Proceedings.
