  • Ontology localisation
  • Multilinguality in ontologies
  • Ontology alignment
  • Knowledge authoring and semantic annotation
  • Knowledge acquisition from non-ontological resources (thesauri, folksonomies, etc.)
  • Semi-automatic knowledge acquisition, e.g., ontology learning
  • Collaborative knowledge acquisition and formalisation
  • Mining the Semantic Web and the Web of Data
  • Ontology evaluation and metrics
  • Uncertainty and vagueness in knowledge representation
