Scale of use, ease of use, breadth of use and choice of use have earmarked the most important transitions of semantic technologies in the years since the first ODBASE conference in 2002. Recent methods allow for scaling of semantic technologies to handling dozens of millions of triples; they allow for composing intriguing semantic applications within a few days; they address target applications from the sciences up to eCommerce; and they allow to chose among plenty of existing ontologies and half a dozen of RDF stores, inferencing engines, or ontology mapping systems.

While these developments greatly contribute to the success of semantic technologies, for enterprise-wide and Web-scale applications, the envelope needs to be pushed much higher, faster, wider, and broader. The 2008 conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics (ODBASE'08) solicits original research papers that push the current boundaries.

As in recent years, the focus of the conference lies in addressing research issues that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as databases, artificial intelligence, semantic web, or data extraction. Also, ODBASE'08 encourages the submission of papers that examine the information needs of various applications, including electronic commerce, electronic government, bioinformatics, or emergency response.

ODBASE'08 will consider two categories of papers: research and experience. Research papers must contain novel, unpublished results. Experience papers must describe existing, realistically large systems. In the latter case, preference will be given to papers that describe software products or systems that are in wide (experimental) use.

ODBASE'08 intends to draw a highly diverse body of researchers and practitioners by being part of the Federated conferences Event "On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems 2008" that co-locates five conferences: ODBASE'08, DOA'08 (International Symposium on Distributed Objects and Applications), CoopIS'08 (International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems), GADA'08 (International Conference on Grid computing, high-performAnce and Distributed Applications), and IS'08 (International Symposium on Information Security).

  • OTM Conferences November 9 - 14, 2008


Papers submitted to ODBASE'08 must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review for another workshop or conference.

All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All papers will be refereed by at least three members of the program committee, and at least two will be experts from industry in the case of practice reports. All submissions must be in English. Submissions must not exceed 18 pages in the final camera-ready paper style. Submissions must be laid out according to the final camera-ready formatting instructions and must be submitted in PDF format.

The paper submission site will be announced shortly

Failure to comply with the formatting instructions for submitted papers will lead to the outright rejection of the paper without review.

Failure to commit to presentation at the conference automatically excludes a paper from the proceedings.
