The First Workshop on Practical Application of Ontology for Semantic Data Engineering (PAOS2013)

November 30, 2013, Seoul, Korea, co-located with JIST2013 conference


With the approaching Semantic Web era, it is necessary to manage information and to identify meaningful and well-structured knowledge on the Web. Applying ontology to augment publishing and analyzing Semantic Data is one of the most important research areas. Ontology and ontology-based application can enhance modeling and processing of the Semantic Data, especially the data in specific domains, in terms of data integration, interoperability, reuse and intelligence. The mission of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners in the semantic technologies and related technologies to present their innovative research results or practical applications of applying ontology to enhance Semantic Data engineering and consumption.

Topics of interest

  • Ontology application framework
  • Semantic Web application framework
  • Development of ontology-based Semantic Data for practical use
  • Application of ontology-based Semantic Data for practical use
  • Ontology-based Linked Data Application
  • Ontology modeling for practical use of Semantic Data
  • Ontology-based Semantic Data on specific domains (e.g. health care, education, open government, travel, culture, library, etc.)
